Took a friend for a birthday dinner. Service was great, food was outstanding and we were very pleased. And the floors looked great too! Hope to go back again soon and check out the bar. We had a great time!

Good location and great food
My SO and I went here for an anniversary dinner and had a great time. The food is quite delicious and presented very well. Parker's respected our request to not be seated too close to the kitchen or front doors, and sat us in a windowed room with a view of the Ponce. The crab cakes were delicious, as well as the clam chowder, but I was upset that the flat iron steak was so spicy. The drinks accompanied the food very well and overall the ambiance was a perfect match.

Food was very good. Presentation
Food was very good. Presentation was also good. Service was excellent and our sever was knowledgeable and courteous. Our only comment that my wife and I was the dinner rolls. They were bland to say the least and at best store bought

Great as Always
Compliments to the chef: Shrimp and Grits was its great self. Enjoyed praline cheesecake for the first time.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, the ambiance and the service were impeccable! Serious foodies ABSOLUTELY must try the bacon wrapped dates stuffed with blue cheese - you will not be disappointed! My guest and I had a great time and enjoyed every morsel we tasted from the above mentioned appetizer to my favorite sun dried tomato and artichoke dip. I ordered the Parker's beef braised ravioli and savored it but it took all of my strength to keep my fork from drifting over to my friend's plate and devouring his NY Strip steak! He offered a sampling and I decided then that my next visit I will definitely order a steak because that one bite was pure perfection!

Took my sister there for her birthday. i had ordered flowers through Open Table and requested a special table. all done. once we got there we asked if we could sit outside and they moved us with no issues. Our waiter was great - there when we needed him and didn't hover.
i got the salmon and broccoli w/scallion mashed potatoes. my sister got the scallops on a crispy grit cake. both meals were really good - but hers was best. the grit cake was excellent!!!

Excellent Seafood and Steaks
I had the Sea Bass special and it was excellent. My friend had the Ribeye and loved it. Everything was cooked to perfection. The crab cake appetizer was perfect for 2. She loved her bread pudding and I loved the cherry/peach cobbler. Our waiter was perfect and the wine was 1/2 off!

Excellent food......restaurant could have been cooler in temp.

Great local find!
I live in Stone Mountain and was looking for someplace close to home. This was perfect.

A friend and I had an early dinner on Tuesday of this week. We didn't drink, so I can't comment on the cocktails. Made note that he wine list had some solid picks. She and I shared the wedge salad and we both went with seafood. Yes, this is a steakhouse but neither of us were in the mood for a super heavy meal. I ordered the scallops served with a cheddar grit cake. The scallops were large and very tasty. I wasn't a big fan of the grit-cake so I replaced it with sautéed spinach. Our service was pleasant and generally attentive. I would definitely go back to try out the steaks.

We ate here for dinner on a Friday night. The food was excellent and they had great wine and cocktails!

Great food in Decatur
The square in Decatur is teeming with great food experiences. Recently we had the opportunity to indulge in yet another one at Ponce on the Square. The steaks were cooked and seasoned perfectly and paired equally as perfectly with the wine suggested by our server. Great place!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again we are in a rut, have to have their Porterhouse.
It was awesome and cooked perfect.

A great dinner at Parker's
Five of us enjoyed a great dinner Thursday night at Parker's on Ponce! Two of us had shrimp and grits, one had the small filet, one had the rack of lamb, and one had the Parker's dinner salad with flank steak. All were very satisfied with their selection. We also shared the shrimp Rockefeller and the artichoke dip as appetizers. For dessert, we had the cheesecake of the day, the peach cobbler, the bread pudding, and the pecan tart. All were pronounced superb! Our service was professional and the prices no more than other up-scale restaurants in the area. All in all, it was a very good experience that will bring us back to Parker's on Ponce.

One of the tenderest steaks ever
Thank goodness for Scoutmob so that we have the opportunity to experience places that might otherwise be a bit out of reach. Great drink selection. My husband had the tenderest ribeye I've ever tasted. When they were out of bacon infused vodka, our server gave me extra bacon on my salad - very thoughtful. And on that theme, the bacon brownie sundae was well worth trying as well.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had dinner out to celebrate his birthday. This time was a bit unusual since there were 72 people there for a christening party. However they had reserved a table for us away from most of noise and comfortable. As always wait staff was friendly efficient and did a marvelous job without being overbearing..
Mu husband ordered a strip steak and was done perfectly. I always appreciate the fact that they have you cut into steak to be sure it is way you enjoy it. I had ordered the Georgia trout and was pleasantly surprised the sides that came with it were so well done. we both had the Bibb wedge salad and while not truly a wedge it was very fresh and crisp
Portions were generous and well cooked and presented very nicely.

Great food & Service
Food was fresh and delish! Server was very friendly and attentive. Jazz playing in the next room made the dining experience even better.

Overall great experience
Parker's on Ponce was suggested to us by a friend so my wife and I decided to try it when we went out for our 5 year anniversary. We were immediately impressed with the decor and overall look of the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and accomodating and our server, Danny, was awesome....very helpful with the menu choices and also a lot of fun. All of the food was delicious and we will absolutely be dining there again soon. Thank you Parker's on Ponce, and Danny, for making our anniversary date one to remember.

Great for a steak dinner date!
Went here with my girlfriend for a nice steak date night. Surrounding area was lively on the Saturday night, and the restaurant was not busy but not empty either. Service was fantastic, food was perfect. We ordered steak for dinner, also got the very intriguing Dates as an appy (They also give you free bread, always a plus).
I would recommend this to anyone who is A) Looking for a high quality dinner, B) Steak C) nice location for a Date.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We LOVE Parker's
We had a great steak dinner - perfectly cooked steaks (delish!) - and yummy sides. We had appetizers (their house salad with dried cherries and almonds is killer - one of my favorites!) including a great cheese plate and white chocolate bread pudding for dessert, too. It was a terrific meal. The white asparagus was tasty, though came to the table warm not hot, but the mashed potatoes and lobster mac and cheese were really good. Recommend highly!

My fiance' and I just got engaged on Wednesday and we wanted to go out and celebrate on Friday. He was adamant on a locally owned restaurant as he says Atlanta is the land of chain restaurants. I searched and search and finally came across Parker's on Ponce. It is one of the best restaurants I have been to - ever! They asked if were celebrating any occasion and we were so they honored that with an end of dinner champagne. The food was to die for and our waiter "Todd" was so knowledgeable of the menu and his suggestions were spot on. I'd definitely come back again and again.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another exceptional experience
This is definitely one of our favorite dining spots. The food is consistently excellent as well as the service.

Perfect Restaurant for Autumn
The weather was perfect for eating outside on the patio and people-watching. Our wait person was humorous and efficient with her recommendations and delivery of the food (with help from the other wait staff). We had a delicious bottle of wine with our food. We started with the cheese and antipasto platter, then I was too full to finish my grouper. It made a great lunch for me the next day. My husband enjoyed the special black bean soup but was not pleased with the spinach salad. They took it off the bill, so they made everything right.
10/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
This was our second time there and just like the first everything was perfect! The wait staff is friendly and always on top of their game. The food.... well what can I say besides Amazing! I got the Sea Scallops, as I did the time before. Consistency is a real problem with most restaurants, but not Parker's. It was just as great as I remembered and the Jalapeno Cheddar Grit cake under the scallops was light and crunchy! I have to rave for a second about a dessert special they have right now which is the Candied Bacon Brownie! It is a foodies dream! More like a fudge almost with little bits of wonderful Candied Bacon. A Must while they still offer it. If I had a complaint it would be update the online menu. Great Place Great Food

My family had a great time and our server was the best.

4th time's the charm
Been there for Mother's Day with my son, Christmas Eve with my family, a sister's 70th birthday celebration and most recently just introducing a new friend to Decatur and was very pleased each and every time. Not a steak eater but that doesn't matter because there is always so much else to delight in and the service is wonderful! I'll be back!
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We will definitely be back.
We will definitely be back. Very good food and drink

We very much enjoyed the mixed drinks, wine list, and food. We had the grouper and the flank steak, and both were enjoyable. I was impressed and will go back. The service was also outstanding.

Parker's on Ponce always exceeds my expectations. This time I ordered the Georgia Trout and it was fabulous! Amazing!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The filet Oscar was one of the best I've ever had. Service was a little slow and food took a while. My steak was delivered to table 10 minutes after the rest of my party, but it was worth it. Loved it
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've eaten outside previously, and wanted to do so again, but it got a little chilly, so we moved inside. The food is always great quality and delicious. We have become regulars.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Food, Great Service
This was our second time eating at Parker's -- the first was part of a larger group for a special occasion several months ago. This visit solidified my opinion that Parker's is the place to go on the east side of town if you want a great steak, cooked the way you like it. The service was outstanding. We were seated immediately, and didn't feel like there any gaps between visits from our server. Lots of menu choices. The food was better than expected. My wife ordered a few cocktails and they were made well and tasty. I won't say the evening was inexpensive, but it was worth it.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Listen, Listen, Listen
As one of my favorite places to eat, I was a little disappointed with Parker's this evening. After telling the hostess we would like a place that was warm (chilly night in Georgia!), she sat us between the front door & the patio door! The place was not full at all, so many better choices were available, so I asked again for a warm spot...and was reseated. Luckily, this was the end of the "bad". As usual, the food was great. Most of us had the steak or the chop and enjoyed every mouthful. Our waitress was efficient and the manager was around visiting the tables to assure everyone was happy.

Excellent Place to eat
Located in the middle of Downtown Decatur, this place is a gem. The lighting was low yet very adequate and appropriate. Service from our waitress (Christine) was impeccable. The pianist and occasional vocalist provided entertainment that was well performed and did not distract from regular conversation with my companion. the Crab caeks are the awesome. The remoulade sauce was the best I have had outside of New Orleans. It is so worth checking this place out.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went to Parker's on Ponce with my honey on a whim... BOY were we glad we did. Neither of us had been there before. To begin with, the waitress was super friendly! Then, they had wine specials that they cleaning out, so we got an awesome bottle of wine at a discounted price! Score! We ordered the pimento and artichoke appetizer and just about licked the bowl clean!
I had the crab encrusted fish (delicious) and my date had the salmon (which was equally delicious). We ended the meal with the bread pudding and rolled out stuffed!
Go to Parker's on Ponce. You won't be disappointed from the atmosphere of beautiful fireplaces and white tableclothes to the piano player in the bar. Although it fancy, it's still very comfortable!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
A lovely and very service oriented
As usual the food was excellent. The server went above and beyond because I ordered the prime rib special and wanted rare. She explained that most were medium to medium rare and I told her would be ok. Several minutes later she informed me that the Chef had removed a roast from oven and cut a rare section for me and then returned to oven. to finish cooking. That allowed me to have the rare meat I prefer
Service attentive without being overbearing. All in all a wonderful dinner.

Had a wonderful birthday dinner
Had a wonderful birthday dinner at Parker's on Ponce - parents shared a rib-eye and said it was fabulous! My husband had the pork chop - he ate every last bite. I had the bleu cheese/bacon hamburger - bun was a little stale/hard. Only reason I gave the food a "4" - We'll be back!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
All good except...
Food was delicious, service was excellent. My only beef was the tiny portion size on my $29 piece of fish. At first I thought I got a child's plate. If you opt for the daily special, ask about portion sizes.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is our favorite restaurant for steak and prime rib.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
dinner for 4
We went to Parkers with friends and all had an excellent meal. I am on their ;list for specials and we had prime rib at a terrific price so ended ordering salads ( spectacularly good) and even took home a dessert.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very enjoyable dining experience
Great food, friendly staff, nice ambience with live piano player.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Slipping a little?
We've eaten here a few times a year since they opened, and they've always been wonderful. But this time, the food was still great, but the service was totally awful. The food took forever to come -- we watched people who arrived the same time we did eat, get doggy bags, and leave -- and the waitress seemed totally oblivious, occasionally walking by and saying "any minute now." Let's hope it was just a glitch and not a sign of things to come.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful selection of wines.

Parkers on Ponce has never failed me. When people come from out of town Parkers on Ponce is our place to go. Service, food and atmosphere are always consistent and the very best.
