Gerry Manning, a former Boston schoolteacher, had dreamed of owning a restaurant from his boyhood days when he would help out in a cousin’s restaurant in Scituate, The Olde Satuit Grille. While he attended Boston College, during the summers he worked in various restaurants and continued to do so when he became a teacher in the Boston school system. Finally in July of 1981, Gerry’s dream became reality when he opened Captain Parker’s Pub which has been open every day since (except one snowy day in 2005), even during an expansion in 1985.
