A local place with great food, generous portions and great prices. Had the soft shell crab sandwich that came with two sides and hush puppies for less than $10.00. I am sure I could have paid a lot more somewhere else but why? Impressive menu and you can order off either the lunch menu or dinner menu all day. Well... More

This is a hidden beach gem that serves up tradional seafood dishes and has a full bar. The seafood is fresh and prepared professionally and you will not leave hungry. Your pets will probably have some good leftovers too! My daughters love the restaurant which is outside of the gymnastics place so convenient for us in South Jax Beach. Travelors,... More

Gator bites with a horseradish sauce is outstanding. I had broiled flounder that tasted like it was just caught. Broiled baby scallops were very sweet. Whenever we go to Jacksonville Beach we always stop at Parson's.

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
