Parker's is quaint and nostalgic. Nothing else like in it in Sioux Falls. Excellent food. They are suburb on wine pairing with your meal. They always have something unique and tasty.If you are lucky you will even have live entertainment. Stacey is just the best.

I was in Sioux Falls for a business trip, my first time to the city. The gentleman we were visiting offered Parker's as a good place for us to have our meal. As soon as I walked into the restaurant, I was blown away. Excuse my naive thinking, but I just didn't expect to come across such a place in... More

We were on the last leg of our South Dakota adventure and we were told to go to Parker's by a young waiter in Raid City. So we did this after checking into our hotel. Some reviews did not speak well of the service , but we have no such complaints. Our waitress was most accommodating with all of our... More

I highly recommend the Cislic and the bison meat loaf with mashed potatoes. Salad and popovers were equally tasty. Decor was warm and interesting. Staff were very helpful. Nice wines

I absolutely love their gumbo, I'll go several miles out of my way just to take gumbo to go; I like taking or meeting friends here for lunch, dessert and coffee, and dinner! This shop changes its menu with the seasons so it's always exciting to see what the changing menu looks like! Oh, and did I mention that the... More

My plans changed from two to one, still greeted warmly and seated at a nice table. Wait staff excellent, warm, genuine. The tuna appetizer and duck were just outstanding. The martinni was not skimpy. Parkers is a treat when I go to Sioux Falls, I go out of my way to eat there. Wine pairings are outstanding. And parking is... More

So the food was pretty good, although the Caesar Salad was overdressed, yuk! Eddie's salad was overdressed too. My entree was good - large homemade cheese raviolis cooked at very high heat, almost roasted, and served in a tomato sauce. The service however was ultra efficient and not at all friendly. The waiter was so efficient it seemed he had... More

I visited friends in Sioux Falls and they wanted to take us to Parker's as it is their favorite restaurant. We went on a Friday night and it was very busy. We were seated at a table in the very back of the restaurant. I was disappointed at first but it turned out to be a nice quiet spot. The... More

We had 6:30 reservations and didn't leave until 9:30pm....on a Thursday night. We sat for OVER 1 hour and still did not have our salads (and there were several empty tables). We've been to Parker's several times before and it had been a favorite but each time we've gone lately the service gets slower and slower. Tonight was extremely disappointing... More

We are from the UK, travelling across the States coast-to-coast. We stopped off highway 90 to find something to eat in Sioux Falls, keen not to have yet another freeway diner experience... Parkers is a family-run restaurant, beautifully designed and staffed with delightful waiters and waitresses for whom nothing was too much trouble. There was even live (but not too... More
