Time to resurrect this post from way back when. I was contacted by a family member of the original owner of Parker' Tiki House a bit ago. I was happy and surprised to here about the restaurant from a family member. Just goes to show how TC can help in keeping memories of these nearly forgotten places alive. The Parker's opened the restaurant in 1949 and it was originally called Parker's Tavern. Like many folks of that era a trip to Hawaii was all it took for the returning owners to recreate the Tavern into the Tiki House. I hope to hear from the family member soon for some more information on the history of the restaurant as every small bit helps to complete the story of a great little piece of Michigan's exotic past.
