Parkway Restaurant: "worth the wait" Mechanicsville Restaurant Tip by b1bob

Parkway Restaurant is a combination American and German restaurant. As of April, 2009, it was the only German restaurant in the Richmond area. It is located at the Cold Harbor Shopping Centre at the corner of Cold Harbor Road and Stonewall Parkway. The atmosphere is that of a cozy American restaurant, but there is quite a variety of German things on the menu. One bothersome thing was that in order to get to the no smoking section, you had to pass through the smoking section. Also, the seats were hard and uncomfortable: there were no booths. The service was as slow as molasses; it took a good while for the waitress to even take our order. Once she did, it took 50 minutes for us to be served. I could have understood that if the restaurant were full up. There was a group of 12 in the next room, but others around us (some who arrived later than we did) got their food first. We must have gotten lost in the shuffle. The waitress was so apologetic and gave us a free dessert to take home. To Parkway's credit, they tried to rectify their mistake.
Favorite Dish: Although this is the only restaurant with German food on the menu in the Richmond area, the chicken livers were on special that evening. The two sides I ordered were fries and collard greens. The chicken livers were fried perfectly, but they got the onions a little too crisp. However, the fries, the greens, and the homemade rolls were served hot and the portions were abundant.
