On New Years Eve we decided we wanted seafood and searched for a locally owned non-chain restaurant. Parsons was recommended to us by several people. We drove out to Jacksonville Beach and our Garmin was able to get us right to it. It really is kind of tucked away. It reminded us of places we had visited in the northeast.... More

While in town for the TaxSlayer Bowl, we traveled to the Jacksonville Beach area to 1. See the beach 2. Following the University of Tennessee "Pride of the Southland Band" to their hotels. While there, we wanted to find a good local seafood restaurant. Having never been in this area, we were at the mercy of using reviews (both here... More

We went on New Years night and they only had 2 servers working and they were also the cashier and hostess. They were working the busts off but just couldn't keep up. Took an hour to get our food. We got the Mariners platter, half broiled half fried. It was realty good and huge portions. The iced tea was horrible... More

This restaurant isn't much to look at on the outside of the building, but if you judge this book by its cover and keep driving, you will be doing yourself a disservice. Parsons Seafood Restaurant is a Best Seller! The food at Parson's is absolutely fabulous, fresh, and very affordable! If I lived in the area, this place would be... More

This is a great little non-chain seafood restaurant. I liked the reviews, so decided to suggest it when I visited my sister. Everything we had was awesome. I had soft-shell crabs as my entree. The salad was just outstanding as were the other sides. The hushpuppies were just right - crunchy outside and perfect inside. This place is going to... More

So disappointed, had looked forward to our visit to Parsons Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014. I ordered Flounder Florentine, which was Fish stuffed with unseasoned frozen chopped spinach..ugh..not good. Hushpuppies were undercooked..ugh.. Waitress was matter of fact, not friendly. Baked potato was perfect, wine was in a generous glass, appreciated that! Leah B. from GA

We tried Parsons - wanting to go where the "Locals" go. We were not disappointed. The food was good and service was very good. We had stuffed shrimp and stuffed flounder but there was too much stuffing in the stuffed flounder. The portions are so large that everyone takes home something. The prices are great and the Car paintings on... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in here for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. I was craving fried shrimp and we have driven by this place so many times but never stopped in. I'm glad we finally did. The service was friendly, felt like I was at a family members house. The seafood was fresh and prices are exceptional.... More
