Family owned and operated Parker’s Seafood Kitchen has been open for one year this month (May 2023) and going strong in downtown Marion. Husband and wife Demetris and Ambra Parker opened Parker’s Seafood Kitchen on May 7th, 2022, and have been busy serving the community authentic seafood dishes such as seafood boils, fried shrimp, po’ boys and much more.
“Mr. Parker wanted to bring his roots from Virginia to the Marion and Grant County community,” Ambra stated. “He was tired of commuting to get the seafood experience.”
The couple expressed they are excited about the efforts to revitalize downtown Marion.
The restaurant is involved in the community and participates in downtown events with Discover Marion Downtown, most recently hosting an event in April with deep fried lobster tail and alligator specials as well as a downtown gift basket giveaway. They will host live music on May 19th with Sammie Miles in partnership with the City as part of Marion’s Birthday Party.
Parker’s Seafood is open 7 days a week unlike most restaurants: Monday through Thursday from 11am-2pm, Friday from 11am-8pm, Saturday from 3 – 8pm, and Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
