Another fantastic meal at The Parkside. Party of 8 for dinner before Waterfire. Lamb shank melted off the bone, pork rib was amazing as was the halibut special.

Definitely enjoyed our meal, wine, ambiance and service. Crab cakes are to die for! A tad disappointed with chicken but it was our 2nd choice. Wine list quite nice, very reasonable prices. We'll be back!

Parkside has always been a lunch favorite. They have a great roasted quarter chicken with fries and small salad. Service is pleasant and efficient.
