    Very disappointing. Overpriced and underwhelming. Steakhouse prices and valet only but there were very few menu items we were interested in. Their alcohol selections were scant and did not taste good. The service was just okay, valet was rude and made us walk to our car. Waiters were okay but they decided to train someone on the Saturday before Father’s Day so definitely not the service level you’d expect when going to a steakhouse. Just go to Mastro’s.

    This was our first time at the Parkway Grill. I chose the restaurant based on reviews. Upon entry, the vibe was great; dim lighting, comfortable chairs, low music and non rushed service. Excellent service by Millicent. She was a professional. She read the room. My wife and I were there for an anniversary celebration and she presented a highly competent, but non invasive service. And was an expert on menu items. All the ingredients were of the highest quality and arrived hot and expeditiously. Only very minor concerns are worth mentioning. Since we all have to pay for bread now, it should be amazing; in my opinion, I would add something special to this offering. Like a moist house baked roll with a compound butter (for example). The presentation here consisted of different styles of bread, but none of which was truly special. A small detail, but an important one in my view. All of the entrees and starters were top drawer and I would recommend this place for a special dinner out or just a nice family get together.

    I have eaten at the Parkway Grill many times and always experienced great food and service. Last night service was poor as we waited for some time for a waiter to ask for drinks. Waited a long time to get beverages. Halibut was on the dry side which was also disappointing. Hopefully this was a one off experience.

    Food was fabulous. We had the halibut, bolognese, and tuna tar tar. Would have liked to have a a fully stuffed baked potato with the halibut.

    I love everything about Parkway Grill, best of all the quality of its meats. I love steak, especially good steak. It has amazing cocktails and very nice desserts. Whenever In want to treat someone to a special dinner, I always rely on the Parkway Grill. It never disappoints. It has great service, ambiance and it is in a great location.
