Parker's is a good bar/restaurant that sheds the tourists and attracts the locals. Small beer selection, but quality menu ensures you have something good to eat. Don't miss the specials of the day, that's where you will find the best quality. Personal favorite on the menu? Grab yourself a 1lb. order of dirty wings - yum!

We were there early Saturday night for the only-Friday-Saturday prime ribs (for him; not me). The prime rib was "OK"; that's as far as it goes. The iced tea tasted "off", like a mix; the baked potato tasted, well, earthy and not really like a fresh potato. The chicken francese was pasty and uninspired. A lot of old couples (like us). I don't think we'll be back there unless he's really really hurting for ANY old prime rib .... (Really: iced tea ????)

This is a traditional restaurant with a broad variety of food. We went with a group of 14 and were easily accommodated. Clearly a local favorite. The appetizers were quite good (we tried the calamari and artichoke dip (while quite good, we have had better). The New England clam chowder is a little different, quite think with a strong hint of smoked bacon. The fish was outstanding. The veal, chicken, and fish and chips were also quite good.

We have been going to Parker's for years. The food is always consistenly good with lots of specials. The staff is cheerful and attentive and always remembers your name. You must try the homemade artichoke dip and the homemade desserts. Oustanding.
