“good food, service needs improvement”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

Have eaten here twice. Both times the food was tasty and plentiful. Hot food was hot. Both times we felt service needed an upgrade. The waitress had her back to the tables, doing something across the room with menus so we could not get her attention. My dinner mate eventually got up and refilled his own coffee. On the second visit there were no napkins on the table...had to request them. After finally getting the waitress's attention once into the meal, she brought the missing rolls and then my missing drink. Not sure if we want to give this place another chance.

“A DINER”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

The Parkside will never will any culinary or decor awards. It serves basic diner food that is acceptable. Expect nothing more and you will not be disappointed.

Great place for breakfast or a quick meal. Don't forget to play a round of minature golf on the historic course.

“Excellent breakfasts”
Reviewed February 27, 2011

Parkside has excellent breakfast food in a classic local neighborhood diner atmosphere. While the place is nothing special in terms of looks, it is clean and the staff is attentive. The bacon and home fries are excellent...best home fries I've ever had...chopped into small pieces and nicely browned with great flavor...not overly spiced. The eggs and pancakes are very good. Scrambled eggs are actually scrambled, not just folded. The pancakes are light and fluffy.
The staff is generally friendly with a family atmosphere, but that varies some from server to server. All were competent and attentive, though.
