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.

Packers is probably best appreciated for their salads as they have a build your own. They also have a complement of typical Americal fare: burgers, French dip sandwich, chicken, fish, etc. Decent food and pricing but not exceptional.

Great place tucked in a small strip shopping center just up the road from Sikorsky. Nice decor inside and a beautiful bar. We sat at the bar and ordered apps and dinner. The steamed clams were excellent as were the filet tips. Alexa the bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable. We'll definitely be back!

Nice little quaint restaurant. We started with the salt and pepper calamari ($5.00 happy hour special), my husband had the soup of the day (beef and barley) which was amazing and finished with the Cajun Salmon. Everything was amazing and our server (Courtney) was awesome!

We have eaten at the Parker on a regular basis for several years, primarily for lunch. Why? The food is consistently good, with a variety of appetizers and entrees that are excellent. One of our favorites is the steak pizza (with extra hot peppers); it's a delicious thin crust pie, with excellent cheese and bits of steak tips. The boneless... More
