Parkers' Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review

: This comfortable, sprawling seafood house is just fancy enough, its wood-heavy setting both business appropriate and perfect for dates. While it’s not exactly inexpensive, you do get what you pay for. Seafood selections are prepared simply --- wood-grilled or roasted with sautéed, garlicky spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and herb-roasted potatoes --- though specialties take a different approach. We recommend the New England-style lobster roll when you’re in a classic mood or spicy Hawaiian tuna with curried shrimp noodles when you’re not. For dessert, we favor the pecan caramel torte. The wine list is full of winning labels that, overall, are easy on the wallet.
