Went for dinner on Saturday evening and had a great meal of the fried shrimp and my wife had the blacken catfish. Tried the conch fritters on our servers recommendation and they were very good and so was the dipping sauce. Expanded beers on tap and the great servers are another reason to visit Parson's. Very happy to see the original owners, servers, and menu are back.

This place was always my family's go to place for fresh seafood that tasted great without the ridiculous pricing. A couple of months ago they had a "hiccup" with the ownership. We went with another couple and walked out without ordering. Well, I have been checking the reviews to see if anything changed. As soon as I saw the one that said old owners were back, we headed out there. Our food was amazing! My mahi mahi and scallops were grilled to perfection. My husband travels for business and he gets to eat out at all types of restaurants and he said his dish was excellent. The crab-meat was seasoned perfectly. The waitstaff was great as usual! We had Erica who was just awesome. Great experience. Can't wait to go again. So glad ya'll are back!!!

Parson's relocated but he food is still dry and tasteless and even though we complained about the heat in the restaurant, they said it was as cool as it cackould be. Will not be back.

We've stayed away since our lousy experiences with the new ownership. We got word that the old Parsons was back. It's like coming home. They made some improvements, the staff was back to their pleasant greetings and service. The menu was the old favorites (not handwritten and limited) and the food was hot, not warm, and tasted great. They ARE back.

This is probably THE BEST SHRIMP in Jacksonville / JAX Beach. Fresh as can be, lightly battered, and cooked to perfection. The HUSH PUPPIES are the best I have had.
Surprisingly GREAT FOOD considering the strip mall type location.

Great place for after Saturday Mass.
