Parkway Grill was the perfect place for my sister and I to have lunch and discuss some delicate family matters. The atmosphere is quietly elegant and the food is upscale. The wait staff is always very welcoming and unobtrusive.

My friends and I get together at the holidays and have lunch. We would rather spend time together than buy stuff. The Parkway Grill is always beautifully decorated for the holidays. The service as usual was impeccable. I had recently developed a severe allergy to clove and kitchen checked that my meal wouldn't kill me. A lovely time was had... More

Beautiful room and ambience...Christmas decorations still up and very lovely. Nice service. Food is just OK, expensive. We don't mind paying if the food is outstanding but this was disappointing. We'll probably go one more time and order differently. Maybe this is one of those places where you are paying for the atmosphere (which is very nice indeed.)

Though owned by the same people who own Arroyo Chop House, this restaurant falls a measure short. It's still very good, but the place isn't as beautiful, not as welcoming, and the steaks are not up top its sister high standards.

We met with friends for a quiet dinner at the Parkway Grill. The service and ambiance were excellent. It helped that the dining room was decorated for Christmas with many wreaths, Christmas lights and other festive decorations. The piano player in the background was very nice as well. We all enjoyed different dishes (3 of us had steaks and 1... More

This place is usually on the spot. My wife likes well done meat, so we experience lots of problems. This place does a good job keeping a well done cook not burned. Service is usually good. A little pricey.

We have been having wonderful dinners at the Parkway Grill for many years. Unfortunately our past two meals there have been very much sub-par. First the good. As always, the restaurant is attractive with comfortable seating and lighting. By todays standards, it's a quiet restaurant. And as always, the service is excellent. The servers are knowledgeable, friendly and competent. Cocktails... More

We visit every year and have never been disappointed with the food and service at Parkway Grill. ALL their entrees are served well and tasty. We as a party of four had salmon or steaks and super. Do not miss it.

Since 1984, Parkway Grill has specialized in a seasonal, market-driven approach to cooking that incorporates diverse influences and classic French technique. Demonstrating the ultimate commitment to fresh produce, the Parkway Grill planted its own organic vegetable and herb garden behind the restaurant. Tiki Salad, Brick-Oven Baked Cambozola Pear Flat Bread, and Whole Ginger Fried Catfish are long-time favorites. The design of the Parkway Grill is a study in casual sophistication, striking a perfect balance between elegance and rustic approachability. The brick walls are adorned with elegant paintings by Millard Sheets and mixologists prepare hand-crafted cocktails at the expansive bar, an original from 1920's Chicago. Parkway's award-winning wine cellar, comprised of upwards of three thousand bottles, includes a broad selection of wines served by the glass.
