Quick breakfast

We stopped in here on our way out for a quick breakfast - one egg, potato and toast in their grand dining room. It was $13. The buffet was $25, which we didn't try, but it looked good. I loved the service and formality of it all and would have come back for dinner if I had the chance.

We sat at the bar and just had the legendary Boston cream pies with a couple rounds of Manhattans. Todd was a gracious host. Bess who was the manager stopped by and checked on us. It's an exceptional bar with exceptional employees. Thanks again for the good times.

Wow!! Top of the line food and wait staff for our breakfast dining experience! At $24 per person, it was comparable to other restaurants we ate in, but the service and quality of food were above any other place we ate.

Three of us celebrated a birthday here with Sunday breakfast. The room is a piece of art work, the service was attentive and the food was tasty and well prepared. As a bonus, the birthday girl was served an individual Boston Cream pie with a candle. It was a lovely end to the meal.

The Parker House has had a long time reputation for food and hospitality. It is credited with creating or perfecting Boston Cream pie, lemon meringue pie, Boston Scrod and of course, the Parker House Rolls. Parker's is one of the few remaining hotel (or even freestanding) restaurants where one can find white tablecloths and focused service that is not in... More

Wanted to try this graceful old lady. I felt like I was in the 1930's. Not that I was alive then lol. Beautiful wood and crystal all over. We shared a waffle and lobster roll. Waffle was very good and obviously just made; came with strawberries and whipped cream. I wasn't as crazy about the lobster roll. Very nice buttered... More

Beautiful restaurant in a magnificent, older (but far from falling apart) hotel. We only went to have dessert - we were told this was where the Boston Cream Pie was "born," and we were NOT disappointed. Service was excellent, and the pie (with coffee) was even better!

We went to the restaurant for brunch because, conveniently, before our trip to Boston I got a Travelzoo voucher for this restaurant. What a fantastic deal that was! It's a historic restaurant in the oldest Boston hotel with great ambiance. The staff are very aware of all the history and very willing to share it with you, also take your... More

We lived in Boston for a few years and loved the Parker House. Back for a business trip, we made a reservation for dinner and were so pleasantly surprised.... The room, the food, the service were all as wonderful as we remembered. This is exactly why The Parker House is known a the bastion of Boston tradition... It's consistently, traditionally,... More
