The food here was good. The portion size is huge! The prices are great. The atmosphere is interesting but good. The kids meal portions are crazy big and our waitress was amazing.

Amazing seafood! First night I got broiled scallops, and my fiancé the tuna steak... Came with 15 scallops and 2 huge steaks, for a great price. Friendly staff. We came back multiple times over the trip, because we wanted true, tasty seafood.

I thought the restaurant had a certain amount of charm even thought there seemed to be a few repairs that need to be made just for safety reasons. The staff were all very friendly. My wife really liked her fried shrimp, but my peel-and eat shrimp were way overcooked. So, my suggestion is, if you eat here, go fried.

the six of us went for dinner and I really like the laid back atmosphere in an old building that was relocated. Most of us ordered the shrimp dinner and the other 2 order a fish dinner. The waitress was asked what kind of fish was the fish dinner and she said it was grouper. However it was not grouper.... More

Haven't been to a Parsons in a long time. Dropped off our daughter at Beaches Gymnastics next door and took a chance. Ordered the 40 shrimp for 24 99 and was not disappointed. Food was GREAT. You also get 4 sides and it was all fantastic. Will be back soon!

The food is wonderful and so reasonably priced but you have to let go of the neighborhood and the outside of the building. The structure needs an infusion of tender loving care, including fresh paint and some work on the restrooms, fresh carpet, and fixing leaks. BUT go beyond the structure and you will find affordable, delicious, fresh seafood with... More

I remember going to this seafood place as a kid in Jax beach. Sadly, over 30 years later, it's exactly the same. And, not in a good way. When you arrive, up you can see that it used to have nice landscaping, etc. But, now it is a weed-fest with a trash dumpster in view and peeling paint on the... More

Having lived at the Beach for 20 years, i have passed this restaurant numerous times saying "One day I will try this place". Well the "one day" finally came. I am kicking myself now for not trying it sooner. The food is fresh and excellent. The service was very good. The prices for the huge portions are more than reasonable.... More

The food here is good, it's not "great" but for the type of food and the price it then could easily be called great. They have these fried shrimp platters that can feed two people for a very reasonable price. The place has been there forever and its got the right kind of character - I'd recommend this one for...

We love this place. Food is delicious. Portions are big. Prices are very adorable. We go here every time we are in Jacksonville, usually more than once per trip!
