case for a family - with a legacy of nearly a century of service. This year, Parker's Seafood celebrates 95-years in Roanoke. WDBJ7's Susan Bahorich visited the restaurant today. Robin Butler, Roanoke Resident: Came to get me some good fish and maybe some crab legs, hopefully For years, Parker's Seafood has been a beacon in the storm for Roanoke Valley residents looking for a taste of the shore. Chris Parker: Basically it was started by my grandfather on the city market in 1919 and it was basically a seafood case like this. From there the business grew and locations changed. For the last 40-plus years, the restaurant and seafood market, which resembles a lighthouse, has been been on Peters Creek Road. Run by third- generation Parkers: brothers Glenn.. ... and Chris. a lot has changed since their grandfather, Giles, started the business in 1919. Chris: You didn't have the refrigeration, everything was iced down and trucked in. We used to actually have our own boats. But, reminders of the founder are scattered throughout the business- like this hand cart which Giles Parker used to unload the day's fresh catch. Chris: They would bring everything in crates he didn't have the box industry like you do now. So, it was harder everything truly had to be fresh. While some things have changed, the Parkers say many things haven't especially the family's committment to its customers We're kind of a no frills kinda restaurant we've done things the same way for 95yrs - not a whole lot has changed in the way we cook things or the way we sell things. When i asked Chris Parker what his grandfather would say to 95-years in business, he joked that he would say - 'Get Out of It!" He says it's hardwork and long hours, but unlike some restaurants, Parker's is closed 2-days a week -and that's to give everyone a chance to catch up with their families. Susan Bahorich, wdbj7.
