Good value and friendly waitress

Usually the term "you get what you pay for" is derogatory in its use. In this case I would use it as a complement. Parsons delivers seafood at lower prices. If you want a good portion size of good food (but make sure you pick the right food) then come here. As well you may end up with a very... read more

We went to Joe's Crab Shack the night before...... definitly a corporate store.Not impressed . Over Priced. Decided to try something local the next night. By outside appearances I wasn't too sure but once we were seated and the waitress came to the table we were sold. Outstanding service and the food was off the hook ( so to speak)... More

Ate here for lunch 6/4. Very run down building but the food was good and it was a great value. Had 24 shrimp 4 sides for $25. Don't let the outside fool you. Service and food were great!!!

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
