Description: Since 1984, Parkway Grill has specialized in a seasonal, market-driven approach to cooking that incorporates diverse influences and classic French technique. Demonstrating the ultimate commitment to fresh produce, the Parkway Grill planted its own organic vegetable and herb garden behind the restaurant. Tiki Salad, Brick-Oven Baked Cambozola Pear Flat Bread, and Whole Ginger Fried Catfish are long-time favorites. The design of the Parkway Grill is a study in casual sophistication, striking a perfect balance between elegance and rustic approachability. The brick walls are adorned with elegant paintings by Millard Sheets and mixologists prepare hand-crafted cocktails at the expansive bar, an original from 1920's Chicago. Parkway's award-winning wine cellar, comprised of upwards of three thousand bottles, includes a broad selection of wines served by the glass.

“Parkway Grill - Very Nice Lunch!”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

If you are near Old Town Pasadena, and are looking for a moderately priced place for a wonderful lunch/dinner, Parkway Grill may be just the place. The menu has some very tasty items, both appetizers and entrees, has a very nice atmosphere (sans noisy kids), has wonderful servers, and is very clean. The menus are pretty extensive, with many "surprise" combinations and flavors. I suggest going to the website to see the menus at: http://www.theparkwaygrill.com
Valet parking is available, so "everything" is pretty easy. We will have to return for dinner, soon!

“Pasadena's gem”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Hit Parkway Grill for a great overall dinner experience. Career servers and bartenders, excellent food, fabulous cocktails, live music in the very popular lounge. If by chance your meal isn't 100% amazing simply let your server know and before you know it everything is right in the world. Wide variety on the menu, and they'll even create your own special dish for you if you have dietary restrictions. Make reservations in advance, it's a popular spot!

“Really Good food and service”

Our group had about 6 of the diverse appetizers and the were all wonderful. I had an excellent bone in New York and again it was outstanding. There is not much more to say except yes try it out!

“Really good food, excellent service”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We dined here twice, once at night when we were hurried a little, and once for brunch, which was relaxed and very enjoyable. Love the crab cake appetizer. Big portions.

“Great food, good atmosphere”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

In Old Town Pasadena, this restaurant has its own organic garden and great food. It seems to be a popular place. There was a good selection of menu items including some fish you don't usually see on menus: white fish, for instance. I had the lamb appetizer served with a fig chutney and fresh Canadian king salmon served with green beans and mushrooms. My husband had linguini with shrimp and arugula and crab cakes in mango salsa, both excellent. Probably a good idea to reserve on weekends.
