Stopped in on our recent HF visit. We were convinced we missed the place or that we were in the wrong spot. Went behind the store and found a cozy little spot full of great pizza and amazing beer!
The staff was very friendly. We were quite happy with the available drafts and bottles. Some Cantillons even available at the time we were there. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Cool little place with food, bottles, drafts and pizza. The pizza was really good. Really nice backyard area good for dogs & children. I can’t imagine this place after a HFS event or when they happen to tap more than one HFS beer. The place is super tiny and as it was, it took a decent amount of time to get our pizza when there were only two other people in the whole place. With all that being said, really cool place and I plan to return next time we’re in VT.
Restaurant au décor rustique un peu caché, il faut vraiment savoir où s’est. Service un peu absent et désintéressé. Les prix sont plutôt bons. Choix de bières en fût très intéressant. La pizza est délicieuse. Il y a aussi un petit magasins de bouteilles avec quelques trucs intéressant.
J’ai vraiment eu un coup de foudre dès que j’y ai mis les pieds, c’était prévisible, l’after-Zwanze se préparait dans la cacophonie. Les pizza sont plus que respectables et plusieurs ambiances cohabitent. Un must chaque fois que j’irai chez HF.
This place gets BUSY evenings and weekends, and with a small oven the waits can get long for pies even with only a coupl other people in the place. Service is extremely friendly. Beer selection - HF Edward always on tao, plus usually a Grassroots. Mystic, Maine and Smutty FInest Kind were all n when I visited. The pizza is damn good by the way, with a focus on local ingredients.
This place feels like a house party where you pay for things. The pizza is great, the bottle list especially is excellent and super cheap, and the taps are good enough. It can however, be quite difficult to get a seat, a beer, or your food in a timely-ish manner, seemingly because they just aren’t staffed or equipped to handle even a modest amount of business. This makes it feel as though you’re eating and drinking at your talented and well-meaning friend’s place who hasn’t considered any of the details of having people over for dinner.
Been wanting to check out Parkers Pie since my first trip to VT but it has just never worked out, that was going to change this past trip for the HF Festival. Stopped in with a whole mess of people from all over the world.
We decided to pack up a few cars worth of people and head up for dinner after the Festival, that was a bit of a mistake, but more on that later. Atmosphere was pretty awesome. Inside was a little packed so we moved outside and grabbed the only available picnic table. It was so nice out so I had no problem at all spending some time outside with friends, new and old. Quality seemed pretty high. Top notch pizza ingredients make for some amazing pies. Draft beer selection was good but painfully slow at the front bar while the back bar was much faster it didn’t have as good of a selection. Bottle list was awesome, we picked up two of the last Lou Pepe’s they had for a more than reasonable price. Now for a bit of the bad. The service was painfully slow and we had to wait almost three hours for our food. I know it was the saturday dinner rush but come on, they said one and a half hours for a pie not three hours. We heard a couple different excuses as to why, seemed to change with each person we asked. Once our food did come it was excellent. Their crust is amazing and the wide range of toppings makes is really easy to find something you like. Also got the maple wings and they were excellent as well. Prices were on the borderline of pricey but the quality made up for a bit of it.
Overall, service aside, an awesome little pizza shop in the middle of nowhere. I will definitely return in the future, I will just make sure it is an "off" time.

Arrived at 530 on a Saturday, big mistake with roughly a 2 hour wait for pizza. I get being busy, but the staff was just slow about whatever they did. I talked to a few locals and they said that’s just how they run things. You don’t have many choices in the area so plan to go for awhile, drink some great beer, and don’t have any place to be. Draft list was ok, some local VT stuff but then some out of state like Humulus Lager. Edward was there but the only HF on tap, and it poured so slow it took 20 minutes to get my beer with a 15 beer wait list. The bottle list was stellar with great prices. Lots of tables inside and out back, so you can choose where you want to be. The pizza was great, wonderfully buttery crust. My only complaint was the people we went with and that ordered 2 minutes before I did got their pizza 45 minutes before us. Kind of makes it tough to enjoy dinner with your table mates when that happens. I’d probably head back to a Positive Pie before here, but I’d go back if I was in town for a longer period of time.
2nd time here and this time for a HF post FOFA event. Great beer and food, but again the servers just didn’t want to be bothered with beer crowd or non locals being there. Really frustrating.
Jamais je n’aurai aussi bien mangé loin d’un grand centre qu’au Parker Pie, une superbe pizza avec une Anchorage Galaxie. Quoi demander de mieux? La sélection en bouteilles n’a d’égal que les fûts bien remplis. Une petite épicerie bio est adjacente alors il est possible de ressortir avec quelques flacons. J’aime cet endroit et j’espère y retourner bientôt.
Conveniently located a few miles from Hill Farmstead, the Parker Pie allows you to draink a full pint of Edward or whatever HF beer they have on draught at the moment, a possibility you can’t get at the farmstead itself. So it’s a fortunate way to mood yourself for a long waiting line. The spot itself is tiny, but feels homey and welcoming. We went on a cloudy, wet Autumn day and seating was available.The pizza was perhaps lauded a bit too heavily before my visit and I ended up not appreciating it as much as it deserved, but it remains a tasty pie, just not in the American Flatbread range for my fork. I would not recommend driving to this place on its own, but there are not any better alternatives closer than Waterbury a solid hour away. Note this has changed a fair bit if you come for beer. Pizzas are still really good, but the number of tap lines went down from close to 15 to less than 5.
