Went to this restaurant for the first time to fulfill our friday fast. My wife and I enjoyed the food immensely. She had the flounder Florentine. I had the cobia special. I wife loved the flounder so much she was disappointed that a different seafood restaurant did not have something like it a few days later. The blackened cobia I... More

I ordered the Seafood Combo. The fried oysters were over cooked and cold and hard/dry. The scallops were cold and undercooked and so was the devil crab; it tasted like dough. The fish and calm strip were hot and cooked really good. My advice. Make sure you cook ALL seafood to order. Seafood is best when fresh out the fryer.

Parsons has been a Beaches staple for decades. The portions are big, the food is good, and it comes out piping hot. I had the gator tail, fried, with a spicy dipping sauce. If I had been hungrier I would have had the Mariner's Platter, but I had to take some of the gator tail home as it was. Don't... More

I'm so glad they reopened and so close to home. This used to be a Friday tradition. I love the fried shrimp with cole slaw and fries.

This Parsons is better than the old location on 9th St. S. Ordered a stuffed flounder dinner and a stuffed shrimp dinner. Service fast. Food was outstanding. Will definitely come back.

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.
