I go to Parrain’s several times each month, sometimes for lunch and sometimes for dinner. Food and service is always great! I have never had a bad meal or experience. I have never heard anyone say anything negative about Parrain’s. Amos H Davis (4/10/18)

You get great cajun seafood, and a great atmosphere too, at Parrain's Seafood Restaurant! I've been here many times.
