Everything about PARKERS' in on point. From the moment one walks up to check in, you feel they are taking every precaution to keep diners and staff safe. There are two hostess at the stand both wearing masks and they greet you warmly. Printed menus...are gone, you read the menu on your phone thanks to Q codes printed on laminated cards at your table. We made a reservation on Open Table and were seated within 3 min. of our arrival. Once seated our delightful server Carlie, was superb! Kind, calm and was genuinely happy to welcome us. The patio was well lit, tables were spread out so you didn't feel unsafe nor as if you were alone. Attention to everything was on point. The Food- The drinks we had were picture perfect. The temp and taste were just as we expected and that's just what we wanted. We ordered the Clam Chowder and a Lobster Bisque to start. Both were OUTSTANDING and we could have eaten them as our mains. It should be noted we ordered the Garlic Cheese Bread to accompany our soups and it was just as WONDERFUL as I remembered. Get it! Even if you have to take a slice or two home. It is NOT to be missed. Next up, my fish and chips and my bf received the Branzino. My plate was hot on arrival and the temp of the food also HOT! Nice start. The chips were crispy and delicious. The fish, flaky, perfectly crusted and fantastic. The Cole slaw was awesome as well! My partner's Branzino was expertly prepared, beautifully plated and again, SPOT ON! What a catch! Sadly we were too full to order desert but needless to say there was a moment where we ALMOST considered it, such great options! FINAL THOUGHTS - whether this is a special occasion or an impromptu dinner out, PARKERS' LIGHTHOUSE will not disappoint. Plus the views! The Queen Mary is across the harbor and the lights glisten on the water. ROMANTIC? YES! FANTASTIC? YES! Will we go back? YES, YES and YES! Happy sailing and HAPPY EATING!More

I travel solo frequently and as woman I get the Just One question continuously and find offensive. Today I was greeted with it again..but this time it was different, it was downright insulting. Not only was I just one, but I was treated like being...just one also meant the I didn't deserve the same courtesy as a deuce. After arriving at 11:30 I noted that there a few parties ahead of me waiting to be seated..5or6. When it was my turn at the desk I was greeted with the familiar "Just one?" and then was told it would be a 15min wait..what?You just opened! I was also told that I would be seated at a hightop. This was the first visit for me and decided to flow with it. So 15min later and being led to my hightop..which was shoved against the back wall and right next to the door..hardly a welcoming arrangement. While sitting there thinking that this is a lousy table..I took note that there were at least 10 open tables AND WHY DID I HAVE TO WAIT 15MIN FOR A HIGHTOP that clearly was not in use prior to me? I explained to hostess/manager? that I was uncomfortable with the seating. Having been in the restaurant biz for over 30yrs (GM) I was stunned that instead of being accommodating I was told that there was no other option. Fortunately I have options and optioned OUT. SO..SEE YA..I'll spend my money elsewhere.More

You're on the water with a fresh and clean ocean breeze (even in the middle of the wildfires, at least on the day we were there), tables are spaced VERY comfortably apart, and heaters take care of any chill. Went simple with the fish and...chips, but every aspect of the dish was about as perfect as it could get without trying too hard either. Husband had the seafood linguini which he also rated very highly. Portions were good: not too big or small. The key lime pie was a SURPRISING delight (although too big for the two senior citizens to finish). Kind of an airy mound of mouse with just the right edge of lime to it; not your typical key lime pie at all but not even remotely disappointing.More

Delicious lunch, Summer Salad and Arugula Strawberry Salad. Besides that, the service was great. We were near a group of six that were extremely loud and when we asked to move, the wait staff graciously found another spot for us. I would definitely eat there...again.More

The view was amazing and the food terrific- the seafood salad was delicious and huge! The burger was also gigantic and wonderful. Outdoor seating was especially appreciated during the pandemic- along with great service.

Rib Eye Steak (who orders meat at a Seafood Restaurant) Surprise...it was delicious and cooked to perfection....You must have the TollHouse Pie for Dessert...makes for happy faces all around. Love the Water Front Elegance. Go!More

Great food and great view! Not the cheapest food, but definitely a Destination dining place. The entire staff is taking social distancing and face coverings seriously and just making the experience very safe and pleasurable. The drinks are great, too!

Parker's Lighthouse has been a landmark restaurant in Long Beach for years. They have maintained their fine service and outstanding food selection. Currently, they are abiding by COVID rules and only seating guests in their outdoor dining areas. But nothing is lost due to space...limitations. The view of Long Beach harbor, the lighthouse, the Queen Mary is relaxing. We enjoyed their seafood platter. Outstanding. VERY fresh and tasty. Parker's Lighthouse has never disappointed. It's great for couples, groups and families.More

As far as the group reservation goes it would be no big deal they would just accommodate the actual number. Separate checks> I'd call and ask
