This Jacksonville seafood staple is a usual, good. New location undiscovered by the local feline community, Paraons' food is tasty, comfortable and the service is the same friendly staff as before. We highly recommend Parsosns for a great casual lunch or dinner.

My husband enjoyed his meal, while my seafood was less than wonderful. No questions asked, they removed it from the bill and did everything to appease the situation. Girls working there were fantastic and loads of fun. Will definitely give them another chance when we are back in Jacksonville next.

Try the fisherman's platter. The price you just can't beat. You get local shrimp and Florida oysters, besides the grouper, scallops and clams. You'll need a take tray to go home with the left overs. I recommend it fried

Parsons was recommended to me by someone who knows my tastes. When I walked in, I was kind of surprised that it was such a casual place. (Not to sound pretentious, but the first thing I noticed is that the tables didn't have tablecloths). But I was seated right away and the server was pleasant and extremely helpful when she... More

The fried shrimp were really second rate. I think they were probably butterflied and breaded, then frozen and supplied to Parsons by a commercial restaurant provisioning service. No way were they fresh from Mayport! Friend had crab salad. She was sure it had been made with canned crab. The hush puppies weren't worth eating. The baked potato and cole slaw... More

Don't be fooled by the exterior of Parson's, because inside they have the best calamari and fresh fried shrimp all to make you wish you'd discovered this place before eating anywhere else. The staff is friendly and even though the restaurant is small they make you want to linger and order more clams & flounder. The servings are very generous... More

We never enjoy chain seafood restaurants so we looked around until we found this place and its good reviews. First, our server was awesome- helpful and funny. Second, so much food! We were stuffed before our entrees arrived. We had 4 adults and 2 teens in our party and all of our seafood was very fresh, hot and there was... More

I love everything about this place. I grew up eating at Parsons when it was in Mayport and have always enjoyed the seafood. If you want atmosphere go someplace else, but if you want true fresh seafood this place is the best. You don't stay in business as long as they have and have all of the followers they do... More
