This is my first time here since the new owners took over and I am impressed with the selections on the menu. There are MANY options to choose from, perhaps too many. I had the pasta del Mar which has shrimp, calamari and fish. It was good but could have used more spice. My friend had a Thai dish and... More

This restaurant was a culinary delight! Knew it was under new management and with a new chef. Didn't know what to expect when waitress recommended the "corn dog shrimp tails" as an appetizer but they were her recommendation and we tried them. Have been craving them ever since! Perfection. Rest of dinner was also wonderful -- heart of romaine salad... More

Unfortunately the Parkside was closed on the Sunday when we needed to eat dinner out, but the Parkside owners also own the Mt. Vernon Inn and, based on the breakfast and care at the Inn, I am sure this would also rate 4 stars!

We were told the chef is from Bali. While they server everything from steak to seafood to past, it is the Asian food that is really spectacular. The Chicken Fried Rice is easily the best I have ever tasted, and I have lived in New York City and Chicago and eaten more than my share of Asian food. The ambiance... More

Parkside is under new ownership and they have updated their menu. Its gone from cheap to mid-range, but the quality has gone from good to fantastic! Kate, the owner, is nothing but pleasant. Her husband is a chef who brings high quality food to the table without 5-Star prices. I have sampled a number of items from their menu and... More

New owners, and a new menu. It was varied and creative dishes from many different cultures, like Thai, Cuban, Italian , Middle-Eastern and of course American. Something for everyone.

This is a nice family restaurant which offers a large selection of burgers and salad among other dishes. Unfortunately we find the find both the food and service inconsistent. Sometimes both or one or the other is great and other times not good. All of our trips here over the years have proven to be hit or miss so like... More

We went there for lunch on a Friday. I had grilled marinated chicken breast and fresh cut fries. The chicken was moist and tender and the fries were delicious. My husband had the Turkey Wrap and he said it was really good. My son in law had the Philly Steak. It was good also. The service was quick and friendly.... More
