Parkside is a locally owned and operated Downtown Raleigh Restaurant located at the entrance of the Warehouse District. Parkside is situated on the corner of West Martin and South Dawson streets across from historic Nash Square. It was this urban park, one of the four original parks in downtown that inspired the name Parkside.

Housed at street level and under the longest running neon restaurant sign in North Carolina you will find our doors, which have been the threshold to hospitality for this neighborhood for over one hundred years. Parkside believes in continuing this tradition in every way. From the warm red brick and reclaimed barn wood clad bar to the NC solid poplar tabletops, we want our guests to feel welcome. Whether you are sampling one of our 25+ beers on tap or enjoying our chef inspired locally sourced fare, your experience is our priority.

    During my first visit to Parkside, the waiter recommended the fish and chips, which I ordered and loved. What stood out was that both the fish and chips were both excellent. Typically I find it’s great fish and so-so fries or vice-versa. So I ordered the same last night. I think they ran out of the fries and used frozen crinkle fires that weren’t even crispy as opposed to the crispy seasoned fries I had the first time. That was disappointing, but the fish was still great.

    Everything was just okay… the server was friendly, but not attentive. The menus were filthy and we were shown a table with no communication from our hostess when we sat down. The restaurant has a sports bar feel to it and can get loud at times. The food was just okay. Nothing great, but not terrible. Would I recommend Parkside? Maybe for lunch or brunch if you’re a twenty something. Not a dinner spot from my own personal stance.

    Normally this is one of our favorite restaurants downtown, but sadly after yesterday I doubt we'll ever go back. Party of three for late lunch, mostly empty restaurant. Burger, steak frites, and prime rib. Burger and steak ordered medium, prime rib ordered rare - all three came out quite well done. The prime rib was literally gray. The caramelized onions on my steak frites were so overcooked they were almost a puree. And everything was extremely salty. We should have sent the food back and gone elsewhere. I've just never done that and was uncomfortable doing so. Expensive mistake.

    Food was seasoned perfectly. The prime rib was cooked perfectly to temperature as requested. The short rib stroganoff was also very good. Portion size for the stroganoff was large. Personally I would like to have a smaller portion and add a green vegetable for balance. The only negative was the temperature of the food. Needs to be upped a little so food doesn't get cold before finishing. Service was great!

    I have been wanting to come to this restaurant for years and finally got the opportunity! The atmosphere was amazing and the food was good. My only thing I did not like was that my biscuit was crunchy with the fried chicken bowl. It just needed to be a fluffier, otherwise it was delicious!

    Parkside Restaurant is my go-to restaurant for breakfast and lunch. I like it especially when I want to meet someone for a bit of business or catching up. Food is very good. Service is very good. If you just want good eats while in Raleigh, go to Parkside.

    First time eating there. Would go again. Pork chop was excellent with very fresh green beans. Mashed potatoes were ok. Pretzel appetizer was yummy. Service was very good. Skip the Strawberry jalapeño margarita. Although, i did order without the jalapeño. No strawberry flavor—slightly pink color.

    First time at Parkside. The waiter recommended the fish and chips, and they did not disappoint. This is now my go to place for F&C. I think it’s rare that both the fish and fries are equally good. They were both great. My vegan friend had one of the bowls and totally enjoyed it. There are so many options— something for everyone!

    There were 7 of us and our table was ready when we arrived, so no waiting. We were here to celebrate for Christmas and to host a mini baby shower dinner for our colleague. Our colleague who the dinner was for was late due to a family issue, but the restaurant accommodated our requests and even stayed open late to ensure our colleague got to enjoy a meal and the whole reason we were there… to celebrate the birth of her soon to be baby boy!! Thanks to Daphne for making us feel like family instead of another ticket. We will be back!!!!

    We went to Parkside Cafe for our family holiday meal. this past Sunday. The meal was good but not great. Portion sizes were decent and food was served relatively quickly maybe because the restaurant wasn't very busy. It was a little chilly inside and loud - concrete floors and not much to absorb the sound. It's just OK in my book but not compelling enough to crave to go back.

    Food mediocre. Sandwich had no flavor, meat cold and bun was soggy from au jus...I had to ask for the horseradish sauce bc there didn't appear to be any of it on my French dip sandwich. I had to literally wake our waitress down 3 times to get her attention! Also, need more light over table closet to bathrooms!
