This is not a stretch. We had the best hamburger anywhere at Parker's Bar. It was Kobe beef, on a home baked bun, with wonderful coleslaw and home made potato chips. Over the top! No kidding--the best burger!!

Our party was very pleased with the filet mignon, trout and salmon. Of course you have to have the Boston Cream Pie as well. Menu varies night to night but was pretty large and offers a good variety of appetizers and salads which we did not try.

Came here just for the infamous creme pie. My pie and tall glass of milk did not disappoint. Beautiful restaurant and great wait staff. Will come again when visiting Beacon Hill.

This is where Parker House Rolls and Boston Cream Pie were invented. This is where JFK proposed to Jackie. There is history everywhere. Ask the front desk for a written history of the hotel and restaurant and ask to see table #40. If these walls could talk!!

We stayed at the Parker Omni House Hotel and had breakfast at Parker's for 3 days during the weekend to save time. We consisted of grandparents, son and daughter-in-law and 14 and 11 year old grandchildren. My granddaughter and I had banana and pecan french toast and the first time it was incredible. When we ordered it the second time... More

Stopped in to try the Original Parker House Boston cream pie as an afternoon treat. It was well worth the cost at $9.75 for one desert and presented with fresh fruit and whipping cream. Sadly......... The service was abysmal and the room although old could have been so much more with a refresh of upholstery and finishings and is dire... More

In the heart of historic Boston, and part of the Omni Parker Hotel, Parker's Restaurant is what one expects of elegant dining. Luxurious surroundings, white linen tablecloths and napkins, and attentive wait staff. It is said JFK proposed to Jackie at this restaurant. We had the breakfast buffet on a Thursday morning. A few tables of business people, a few... More

The good news is that you can actually hear yourself in the restaurant at the Omni Parker House. High ceilings and fabric abound. The bad news is that the food is unremarkable and not very interesting. The so-called traditional Boston dishes are not prepared and presented in a way that shows them retaining their vitality and taste.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
