Don't judge this book by its cover...Parsons Seafood Restaurant is a Best Seller!!!

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.

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

I was looking for some place different, not a chain. Like something from Diners,drive ins and dives. Found it at Parsons. The paint out side is peeling, the worst Drywall patching and mis- matched furniture. So, really nothing to look at. I was there on a Saturday night at 7:45. It was crowded. Did not have to wait long for... More

We waited for over an hour just to order our food. Every time someone was ordering and paused, our waitress would disappear and go help another table. I have NEVER seen that type of service in a restaurant before! When we finally got our food, I had to ask the waitress twice for some butter for my baked potato. Then... More

My husband and I wanted some good fresh seafood and decided to try this place because of many positive reviews. Boy were we wrong. I ordered the seafood delight and am regretting it. Lets just say my stomach rejected it. My husband ordered the mariners combo for obe and the fish had that white film on it that many frozen... More
