Started the meal with Deep Fried Stuffed Mushrooms ($3.95) and Crabmeat Stew ($4.99 for a bowl) Yum! We shared the Seafood Delight, a wonderful dish of lightly fried fish with crabmeat and shrimp, with chosen sides of grits and coleslaw ($14.99). Even sharing the meal we had to take plenty home, with generous portions. The Margaritas were the only disappointment,... More

Overcooked shrimp, even after I requested less done, watery clam chowder with mostly potatoes, okra was too greasy. Coleslaw was good.

This place is not pretty. They have some cool fish hanging in the dining room, but nothing is fancy. The food was good - some better than others - and there was LOTS of it. The prices were quite good for how much food we received. Our waitress was a dear!

As it was my brother-in-laws birthday and knowing how much he likes seafood, it was a "no brainer" to take him to Parson's for his birthday. It had been a while since my wife had been back and we were looking forward to it. As in previous visits the quality of the food was outstanding and fresh. The price was... More

There were good reviews of Parsons and a great menu. Things turned sour from the start when our 20 minute wait turned into an hour for 5 people. Things got worse as we saw a huge cockroach before our food came. We got our meal and there goes another cockroach across the wall near us. Three of five of us... More

Great fresh seafood. Lots to choose from. Fixed anyway you want it. This place is off the beat'n path. So it has plenty of easy access parking compared to everything else at Jacksonville Beach. More food than my wife and I could get away with. Great friendly fast service. And the prices are right. We experienced no rudeness. This place... More

We had a party of 10 and had no trouble being seated within 5 mins of arriving. First thing we noticed were the great priced drink specials! The food was also reasonably priced. We started w raw oysters and gator tail, both really good but the oysters stood out. Good size and tasty. I could not resist the Mariners Platter,... More

A party of 5 of us went to this restaurant to have lunch on Friday, we had no idea that we would be treated so poorly by the waiter that served us. I typically prefer to keep quiet when I'm displeased or unsatisfied with the service at a restaurant until after I leave, although my colleagues did not feel the... More

Don't go looking for a gorgeous building- go for great seafood prepared by people who care! This locally own restaurant could be in a big fancy building but you'd pay more. We enjoyed peel and eat shrimp, popcorn shrimp, and two orders of shrimp and scallops. The dinners came with two sides and the lunch prices are crazy- $11.99 for... More

The most terrible experience I've had a a restaurant ever was today at Parson's Seafood. I was only in the area as I had auto repair work being done by the BMW Auto Mechanic down the street. The mechanics referred me to Parson's to eat while I waited on my car. I walked into Parson's and watched as the waiter... More

I'm very disturbed about your review stating one of my server is racist, since they know how I feel about the subject. My son in law is African American and my beautiful grandson is African American, my future daughter in law is African American and my adopted daughter is Filipino. The looks and comments she received when she was out... More
