Downtown Long Beach dining is becoming increasingly diverse, as a mix of new restaurants and tried-and-true favorites draws in visitors and attracts new residents. Venues ranging from tablecloth restaurants to small cafes and casual eateries offer cuisine from every continent and cater to an eclectic palette, from classic Italian pasta to perfectly seared scallops.

With its sweeping view of the water, Parkers’ Lighthouse in the Shoreline Village area of Downtown Long Beach has long been a favored destination for visitors and Long Beach residents alike. A staple of the downtown dining scene, Parkers’ has been serving up fresh seafood and classic American fare for more than three decades. The restaurant is looking forward to its 35th anniversary in 2019.
