“Wonderful Catfish”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

For a small local restaurant the seafood is excellent! The jumbo seafood platters for two are outstanding and you can't eat it all. We enjoy the fried catfish most times we visit and they are always hot & crispy. The staff is always friendly and go out of their way to give you good service. They also have daily specials during the week for lunch.

“Who knew?”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Blountstown is a small town in a rural area, so one might not have expectations for an unusually good dining experience. What a nice surprise our visit turned out to be. It was the first time at Parramores Too for all five of us but certainly won't be the last! We all had fried catfish, which was crispy on the outside, tender and flaky inside and had not a bit of excess grease. The hush puppies, fried okra and real cheese grits were all yummy, too. All servings were quite generous. Service was friendly and efficient. Our only "warning" might be that Parramores accepts only checks and cash - no credit or debit cards - so go with cash in hand. The next time we are in the Blountstown area, there will be no discussion of where to eat. We'll head straight to Parramores Too!

“Fried catfish is about it”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

There are dozens of fried seafood restaurants within an hour of this place and with few exceptions, just pick the one closest to you. They are all about the same. The problem this time was stale grease. Parramore's usually does a pretty good job, but this visit was less than outstanding. We're not ready to write them off, but we are heading back to the river house again next week and I hope it is better.

“Not fancy but true to the South”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

You don't get much more "down home" than Parramore's. I have lived away from home for 13 years and recently went back to visit family. Nothing has changed. The atmosphere is plain, but the staff is friendly and they serve the freshest catfish you can get. The cheese grits are real, not plain grits with a slice of American on top (which is what they serve where I live now. Yuck!), and the hush puppies are crisp on the outside and soft and sweet on the inside. If you want the real deal, get off the beaten path and check it out.

“On a 1 (being worst) to 10 (being best) scale I give Parramores a 4”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

The service was not so good. Waitress answered our questions but at the same time tried to hurry us along with our ordering. I had the fried catfish and shrimp plate. The shrimp taste like frozen pre breaded shrimp that you can buy at the grocery store and the catfish was just " o.k. " If I ever visit Blountstown again I doubt that I'll eat at Parramores.
