The food is consistently delicious! It has an authentic, rustic casual atmosphere with a nice outdoor patio. They serve the best grilled oysters!!

Great food and prices. You get big portions for your money. Services was great. Some nights they have a little wait. Like I said it is worth it. Lots to choose from

Great Food with very good value!! Even though there are mostly college students waiting on you, they seemed to well versed in the menu. I always sit at the bar and the service there is very quick with no wait in getting a drink.

Be sure to get the cheddar, bacon, ranch dressing on your salad. Love the fried food. Service is usually very quick. Floors are slippery so be careful!

I had asked a local for a great fried fish place and she recommended Parrian's. What a good choice. The fried catfish was superb as I stated and the wait was not long. Service was a bit slow, but the place was nearly full too....More

This place is very popular. The Uber driver suggested we go here. It was a 2 hour wait but very much worth it.

Tuesday is half priced oyster day. Not sure of any specials on Sunday night, but they do have a wonderful Sunday Brunch.

You could just order oysters on the half shell, etc. This restaurant is so accommodating that I feel you will have no problems.
