We were staying nearby and looking for a neighborhood restaurant that would be good value. The clams were exceptional. The wait staff brought more bread to help us get every drop of the broth. Shared a pizza and that was the perfect amount for two. Desserts were tempting - carrot cake was enjoyed.

Service can be all over the map. I've had excellent service and questionable service. food is consistently good. I'm not intrigued by anything on the menu, though so I usually try to steer guests to another place. That being said, if you like something on their menu, it's going to be excellent every time you go there. People that enjoy... More

Stopped for dinner at the bar. Pretty crowded but we found two seats. Service was good. Food is always good. I was a bit disappointed with the Turkey Club. It was new on the menu and ordered it as we have tried most of the selections. It was pretty typical of what a diner offers but was still good. The... More

Terrible service. Food arrived, waiter left and we had no napkins or silverware. Waited until he came back to get tableware before we could eat. Ordered a "well" Vodka and was charged $10. Are you kidding, well vodka for $10! This is Stratford not Westport or Greenwich. Have been to Parker in Stfd probably 20 times this year and we... More

We normally sit at the bar although we do order dinner. The meatloaf wears very good. I had the chicken sandwich which was also good but fairly typical. The service is usually very good and the atmosphere is very nice. We don't normally have desert, but the special cinnamon donut could not be passed up. We were happy we ordered... More

Wasn't sure when we walked in, seemed like a more upscale bar food kind of place. Place was not crowded for 7pm on a Saturday, maybe because it is located in a small strip shopping enter. Wow, everything was delicious. Bested lemon roasted chicken I ever had, and I eat a lot of chicken! The dish came with roasted potatoes... More

A lunch here recently left me surprised at how nice this place was. We ate on the deck in the back overlooking the river. It was a beautiful day so that added to the ambiance. Food very good but service was slow as it was a hike for the servers to go upstairs to serve. Parking a bit of a... More

Never a bad meal here. They have a cool choose your own salad option where you decide which greens, what you want in the salad, what protein you want, salad dressing etc. menu is not huge but there seems to be enough on there for everyone. The chicken soup is fantastic taste just like homemade. Highly recommend

Always great service. Very professional stuff. Good food. Usually come here for burger but tried everything on the menu. No complains. Come here and you won't be disappointed. Been to both locations Trumbull and Stratford and both are great.

I've eaten here several times, and been satisfied with the food every time. The lamb lollipops on the appetizer menu are very good, and the steaks are also a solid choice.
