Off the Beaten Path Seafood

On 9th St in Jax Beach, away from all the other choices in town. Don't let the atmosphere deter you, (the place needs a serious remodel) the seafood here is very good. My favorite item on the menu is probably still the seafood gumbo. It is a little spicy, but a great way to start the meal. If... read more

It was ok. We ordered broiled shrimp, crab legs, and blackened tuna. Everything was VERY under seasoned. The shrimp and tuna looked to have a good bit of seasoning but couldn't taste much which was strange. The crab legs were good and the staff was friendly.

We almost did not find this little treasure but sure glad we did. The food was outstanding. The wait staff were very courteous. We split a combination entree- We started with the Seafood Gumbo and Hush Puppies- fantastic in every way. The waitress told us to dip the hush puppies, but they were so good on their own we couldn't... More

Wonderful seafood! Meeting the owner who seated us and brought drinks was awesome. Debbie, our server, was a treat. Great options and large portions. We knew it would be good by the six friendly cats who greeted us at the front door 😄.

Food and service were great. Interior and Exterior of restaurant Not very appealing. Needs remodeling. Even painting would be an improvement. Restroom was dirty and had a musty odor.

Our meal was absolutely delicious. The service was fast, friendly and just the right amount of attention. We have been away for a few years and just returned. It was wonderful to walk back in and have that "right at home" feeling. Parsons is the one place we can count on for good food and consistency. Always our place for... More

If you can overlook the appearance you will fully enjoy it. The bathroom isn't really clean and it's most definitely like a hole in the wall type of restaurant but the food is great. Staff is nice. A lot of food for the price.

I first discovered this restaurant over twenty years ago. Back then it was called the "Junkyard Cafe". ( It had actually been an office for a junkyard). Since that time, we eat there at least once every time we get to Jacksonville Beach. Over the years they have expanded by adding a house to the old junkyard office. It's not... More

Fish had to much seasoning. Blonde 60+ head waitress was most unfriendly! She acted as if she did not need our business. Place was DIRTY,DIRTY,DIRTY!!!! Guess that why they were written up in local paper. Bug, droppings all over kitchen.Will NEVER EAT THERE AGAIN. To many other GREAT seafood places to eat in Jax Beach area.
