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.

    We have been wanting to go to this restaurant for ages and finally got the chance. The wait was worth it! There are not a lot of good "neighborhood" bar/restaurants in the triangle but this is definitely one of them. Good, simple pub food, great beer selection, and fabulous, friendly service. Our only regret is that it's not actually in our own neighborhood. But we'll definitely make the trip again. Try the meatloaf...it's fantastic!

    We made a reservation which is definitely the best option as several groups were turned away just prior to our arrival. Our server was awesome and the food top notch. Biggest baked pretzel I’ve ever seen in my life!!

    Very lively place. Met friends/business colleague for Saturday brunch. Inside was quite loud with boisterous birthday celebrations going on nearby. Even so, was still able to hear others at our table for conversation. This place has beautiful food, so if photographing your food is something you enjoy doing, you won’t be disappointed. I got the pork chop with peaches and waffle. The pork was cooked perfectly but was too salty and I didn’t care for the spicy syrup but it was fine and the price point was reasonable so I have no real complaint. My husband enjoyed the shrimp and grits.

    Good stroganoff. Very good date appetizers. Bourbon on the rocks was a little watered down due to crushed ice. Would suggest investing in the large, big block ice cube trays.

    We went for dinner and hands down, food quality was exceptional. Short ribs stroganoff, bone in pork-chop and evening special of fried chicken were prepared expertly and all very flavorful. However the service was poor. We were a party of three and ordered two appetizers, salads and our entrees, everything came out at once. They brought the salads first, before the appetizers, and we barely had a few mouthfuls and then they brought the appetizers. Less then five minutes later our entrees were served. The server offered to hold them but we knew they would sit under warmer and dry out, so we excepted them. We barely had room on the table for all the food, it was not an appetizing sight. We asked to speak to the manager, since our server was clueless as to the problem, and the manager, who appeared to be very young and not well trained in managing a restaurant, was just as clueless. He didn’t seem to understand that three courses should not all come to the table at once. He never offered any comps, such as free dessert or offer to take an appetizer off the bill, he didn’t even apologize for the poor service. The best he did was say that it takes a while to make the Humus (?) the hummus came out to the table in record time. Not sure what he was trying to communicate with that remark. My suggestion, if you go for dinner order one course at a time or you will get everything at once. It was a shame that we were rushed and not able to enjoy each dish on it’s own. It was a fast food restaurant atmosphere.

    Service was great - attentive and quick. Food was so-so - not bad. I had the chicken and waffle sandwich and it looked like a frozen, pre-packaged chicken patty and a pre-packaged waffle for the bun. Was ok but nothing special. Burgers were good. Prices were decent.

    Matthew is such a great sever. He provided great service, made sure we were enjoying ourselves & he was a vibe. As someone who worked in the food industry I also want to shout out the kitchen staff. Our food came out so quick and it tasted amazing. So far, I’ve tried different dishes and haven’t been disappointed. Parkside is definitely my go to spot.
