We stopped in for an impromptu lunch with a desire to eat outside (at our request and preference in spite of the warm temperatures) and enjoy the view. Our server was friendly and we enjoyed the options we selected..the lobster club and the taquitos. We...thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it made for a relaxing lunch. We would return.More

We had reservations at Noon and asked for a table inside we were seated outside in a very hot area & didn't get any service until about 20 minutes later. We were told there was a mix-up and then later in the dinner, a busboy...dropped calamari all over my sister's back along with the aoli. No one ever apologized and we had to clean up the mess ourselves I would never go back here again. The food was mediocre , the service was terrible.More

Made early reservation two weeks in advance, the checkin for reservations was confusing and they would not let us in to get a drink at the bar. Once inside after a 45 min wait (with a reservation) it was extremely loud, the echo of the...room. Was hard for my boyfriend to hear and even I struggled to hear our dinner guests. Food was excellent but the atmosphere and and disorganized entry were enough to say don’t think I’ll go back again.More

Went to Long Beach with my wife on weekend gateway. This was our first time going to this restaurant and we are happy we did. The food was amazing but expensive but well worth it. I got the surf and turf. I got the 16oz...Bone-In Ribeye Steak with mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus and I added the 6oz Lobster Tail. The stake was well seasoned and cooked perfectly. The lobster was cooked just right and also well seasoned. I was impressed. My wife had the Mix Grill and it came with shrimp, scallops, and first. She loved it all and finished everything on her plate The views from the restaurant are wonderful. You can see the Queen Mary and Rainbow Harbor. The staff was friendly and the restaurant in very nice. It does get very busy So I recommend making reservations. We would and will eat here again.More

Despite having reservations 2 weeks in advance, we were placed in an overflow room without any decor or ambiance. The glass doors were locked so there was no way to get fresh air or to take a picture. I was told this room used to...be used for banquets. ( this room did not compare to the actual restaurant dining area ). Service was slow . The mixed grill was a small serving for the price. The crab cake was more of a spoon of filling in the plate.More

Had a very nice lunch here on Saturday with a couple yummy adult beverages. Their sushi and spicy edamame was delicious! The Sea Breeze was fantastic too but could have been a little bigger with less ice. I hate having a drink where you get...two gulps and it's gone. lol The waitresses were all super sweet and very accommodating since we couldn't make up our minds if we wanted to sit outside in the wind or inside, which is what we opted for in the end. I will definitely eat here again!More

The food there is worth the money. It is a bit pricey but overall everything else makes up for it. I highly recommend this place if you’re ever in Long Beach.

Everything about PARKERS' in on point. From the moment one walks up to check in, you feel they are taking every precaution to keep diners and staff safe. There are two hostess at the stand both wearing masks and they greet you warmly. Printed menus...are gone, you read the menu on your phone thanks to Q codes printed on laminated cards at your table. We made a reservation on Open Table and were seated within 3 min. of our arrival. Once seated our delightful server Carlie, was superb! Kind, calm and was genuinely happy to welcome us. The patio was well lit, tables were spread out so you didn't feel unsafe nor as if you were alone. Attention to everything was on point. The Food- The drinks we had were picture perfect. The temp and taste were just as we expected and that's just what we wanted. We ordered the Clam Chowder and a Lobster Bisque to start. Both were OUTSTANDING and we could have eaten them as our mains. It should be noted we ordered the Garlic Cheese Bread to accompany our soups and it was just as WONDERFUL as I remembered. Get it! Even if you have to take a slice or two home. It is NOT to be missed. Next up, my fish and chips and my bf received the Branzino. My plate was hot on arrival and the temp of the food also HOT! Nice start. The chips were crispy and delicious. The fish, flaky, perfectly crusted and fantastic. The Cole slaw was awesome as well! My partner's Branzino was expertly prepared, beautifully plated and again, SPOT ON! What a catch! Sadly we were too full to order desert but needless to say there was a moment where we ALMOST considered it, such great options! FINAL THOUGHTS - whether this is a special occasion or an impromptu dinner out, PARKERS' LIGHTHOUSE will not disappoint. Plus the views! The Queen Mary is across the harbor and the lights glisten on the water. ROMANTIC? YES! FANTASTIC? YES! Will we go back? YES, YES and YES! Happy sailing and HAPPY EATING!More

As far as the group reservation goes it would be no big deal they would just accommodate the actual number. Separate checks> I'd call and ask
