You can't miss Parker's Lighthouse! It stands proud on the shoreline and is opposite the Queen Mary - at night the curved rooms provide the best views of the ship and shoreline lit with fairy lights. Inside, doesn't disappoint, with classy dark wood interiors and...large, spacious dining areas. The food was up to the mark, with some great canapes and very pleasant waiting staff. The Italian meal I had was delicately cooked and in ample portions. The area around the Lighthouse is pretty cool and cutesy too with a small town vibe and some shops as well as a cycle hire place.More

We had dinner here the night before we left on our cruise. Great view of the queen mary. My wife had the chicken and I had the seafood linguine. Great atmosphere and service.

When I asked friends about Parker's Lighthouse I received a "Meh," response, but we tried this massive Long Beach landmark for a special occasion and were pleasantly surprised. One big deal is that they answer their phone! Imagine that! Our server Greg C was excellent...and informative (he's been there 28 years), and we were given the requested table outside on Patio # 6 (they have heating lamps), a bay- shaped area with a great view of the Queen Mary and harbor. Prepare to pay for your view. I had heard that the food was mediocre, but my seafood mixed grill ($49) and my wife's fish & chips ($24) were delicious, The $15.50 straight-up Martini was skimpy at best. Parker's Lighthouse claims to have the "Best Happy Hour in Long Beach," Monday through Friday, 3-6, so we'll give that a try and report back soon.More

We returned to this restaurant after several years. We regularly went to this place and had excellent memories of it. Quality, refined and high-level cuisine and a warm and romantic environment. Unfortunately only the warm and romantic environment remained but the cuisine we had in...our memories unfortunately no longer exists. Of the two fish dishes ordered we sent one back almost intact and of the other we send back all the sides. The fact that the (kind) waitress didn't ask for explanations makes me think that this is now a habit. The cost was definitely disproportionate for the quality of food served. I strongly advise against it.More

We used to love to go here while in Long Beach, but this week we went twice only to have spoiled meat & fish. First visit I ended up with food poisoning from the hamburger (which tasted strange but I ate it), next visit my...husband and I both sent our tuna back after one bite as it stung our tongues and tasted badly. The manager on duty stated she tried it and it tasted fine. A friend of ours who ate the tuna the same night ended up with food poisoning. I did inform the general manager and suggest they look into the issue.More

We enjoyed our stop here very much, but would probably not stop again. The views and the atmosphere were excellent. The service was great as well. The food, not so much. It was average at best, certainly not worth the price paid. I'm glad that...we went, but there are so many other options in the area. If you want a fun experience, you might give it a shot, but remember that you are paying for the location not for the quality of food.More

Beautiful views! Food was great, we went during happy hour and they had great happy hour food deals. Sitting by the water was very relaxing and the service was great! Fun to walk the boardwalk shops after too!!

The food is great. However, the service for the cost is below our expectations. We had an extra person at our table for a drink and appetizer, and multiple staff came up to talk to us about if we should be moving to another table....Suddenly our server changed and our service dropped down. We waited over half an hour for our entrée. As well, parking validation is ridiculous. We got $1.60 off the parking validation and still had to pay almost $10. Not sure it’s worth the cost for the experience.More

This place is well executed. It is surrounded by proper tourist traps, but it stand far above those places. There is a good mixture of indoor and outdoor seating. The service was excellent. The food was very good, although I limited myself to the sushi...and rolls. They make a solid old fashioned.More

A nice patio over the water... Overprice for the quality of the food Spice does not mean savour. Sevice that day under averageit was not very crowded and it was around 3:30 pm so no reason to have "a discontinued" service

We went here one night to sit in the bar and enjoy a cocktail. Great drink menu and excellent service. Beautiful restaurant and great location on the corner of the village on the water. We went back the next night with dinner reservations. Again, very...good service and a wonderful menu selection. Food was prepared well and served hot. Very nice. There is also a restaurant upstairs. We were downstairs with beautiful night view.More

Was a little worried at first that this restaurant was nothing more than a tourist trap but was very pleasantly surprised. We were in a hurry because of the ferry and mentioned this to the staff. The service was then extremely prompt and I must...add, also extremely courteous - among the best anywhere in the world. And not only was the fish and chips very good quality Alaskan cod but they serve it with any accoutrements you might want, such as malt vinegar (rare in the US) and some extra tartar sauce my daughter asked for. The view and atmosphere are also very enjoyable. The only downside was that one of the bar tables was still a little sticky and the restroom was partially flooded. Otherwise, superb. Thank you.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
