About Us

Get to know the faces behind Parker’s Grille & Tavern, a family-owned and operated restaurant in Avon Lake, OH.

A Family Affair

Paul Kalberer, Victoria Mowbray, and James Mowbray opened the doors to Parker’s Grille & Tavern in 2013. Using Paul’s experience as an executive chef, Victoria’s culinary expertise as a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, and James’s years of property management experience, the team dreamed up this American-style bistro in their hometown of Avon Lake.

The team named the restaurant after James and Victoria’s son, Parker, who happens to be the godson of Paul Kalberer. James says of the restaurant, “We [went] into this as family, so there’s no better way to represent that than by naming the restaurant after someone we each care and love for.”

Co-owners James and Victoria Mowbray, along with co-owner and Executive Chef Paul Kalberer, are proud to be part of the greater Cleveland community and look forward to making Parker’s Grille & Tavern your favorite restaurant in Avon Lake.

If you’re in the downtown Cleveland area, be sure to visit our sister restaurants, Betts located in The Kimpton Schofield Hotel, and Old School Pizza & Wings located in Avon Lake.

Parker’s Grille & Tavern has carefully crafted its menu to include the freshest ingredients and a unique twist on classic dishes. From steaks and gourmet burgers to fresh salads and fish, Parker’s has something to offer every taste bud.

All of our menu prices reflect a cash, personal/corporate check payment. Due to increased inflationary costs on all of our products and especially labor costs beginning Wednesday, April 20th, 2022 there will be a 3% convenience fee on all credit and debit card transactions. All credit card fees go directly to the Credit Card Merchant Services for their Customer Reward Programs. The savings we incur will be used for our employee retention and to further enhance your experience with us. Thank You!
