The main restaurant was sadly closed for the season when we got there but the Raw Bar in the back was terrific - whole steamed lobsters for $9.95! Great bar, the bloody marys were wonderful. Food was fresh, fast and very reasonable.

The Parker House is always busy! The servers are friendly and keep up with the customers' needs but there can be a long wait for a table. The food is good, but not extraordinary.

Probably the best lobster special at the Jersey shore. Sitting on the porch and eating lobster was a real end of summer treat tonight. The service is excellent. We also had a delicious spinach salad. Our friends had the lobster bisque and thought it was great. What a great way to end the summer.
I think you do have to be prepared to wait but we didn't have to wait at 6:30 tonight. Remember to try the Parker House next summer!

Be prepared to wait during the summer, no reservation! Better bet is the back porch, $2 hamburgers, $10 lobster, best shrimp cocktail sauce in all of New Jersey!! Very casual...

Rude rude rude! I wish I could not even give them 1 star. Everyone in the staff (except maybe the bartender) was very rude - the hostesses and waitresses! Especially the high school going hostesses and old lady with short hair, who manages the place, I think. They all really need a lesson in manners and hospitality if they want people to feel welcomed and come back. Or maybe they're just a RACIST bunch (I'm not white) and do not want non-whites in their restaurant!

and oh yeah, we had similar experiences like the other review about the staff giving them a tough time about the stroller. Basically the staff is totally inconsiderate and NOT kid friendly. So if you're going there with young kids or babies, do yourself a favor and pick another place -- unless you like being yelled and spoken to by a staff that seems to think their job is to give attitude to customers.
