Steakhouse
Owned by brothers John-Thomas and Christopher Scott, Parker's on Ponce is Decatur's first independently owned steakhouse. The Scott family has always been extremely involved in the local community, including local government. The restaurant is named after John-Thomas' 12 year old daughter, Parker. The whole family is often seen at the restaurant - it is not a business to them, but a home - and they treat guests of the restaurant as family as well.

    Had a girl’s night and decided to try this place out. Our server was very nice and attentive. She gave great recommendations. We tried the lobster fritters which was an special for that night. They were good but a little cold and they could have been fried just a littler harder. Reminded me more of a crab cake than a fritter. My friends got the short rib which they enjoyed and I got the bone in pork chop. She asked how I wanted it cooked and I said medium but it came out more on the well done side. But it still was pretty good. I had the truffle Mac and cheese and Thai Brussels sprouts as my sides and they were delicious. The Margarita ( which isn’t on the menu) was the best margarita I have ever had! Great restaurant

    We dined in on Valentine’s Day as we wanted to eat local. We couldn’t have made a better choice! Parker’s on Ponce is a local gem! The food was delicious! The crab cakes were packed with fresh crab to perfection! The steak was aged to perfection as well! Hats off to the chef and staff!!! The service was excellent! They had a live pianist and provided guest with fresh roses. I will definitely recommend Parker’s to anyone that’s looking for an amazing experience without traveling into the city!

    Parker's was perfectly attentive to my sister and me, as we were celebrating her birthday and had a concert to attend right after. Jerome was delightful in his knowledge of the menu and the day's specials. He made wonderful accommodations for my sister's food sensitivities. Porterhouse for two was cooked to perfection and being sat at the high-top right by the jazz pianist, set an amazing atmosphere. The bread pudding 🍮 was literally HEAVEN! Thank you, Freddy, for checking on us and ensuring our dinner was THEE BEST!

The service was excellent, the staff friendly and attentive, food delectable, and the pianist was the cherry on top! Such a wonderfully, cozy, sexy, romantic, relaxing environment. To the owner's of the spot...you have done an excellent job of creating a of great ambiance. And, know that your staff members represent your vision well! **Again, kudos to the pianist...the music really took the experience next level. Thank you!!

    It's among the top tier in Decatur, which say a lot. My families' filets were perfect; I had the swordfish. The fish was tbh a little disappointing, but the presentation was excellent and the price wasn't bad. I cleaned my plate. Also, mine was a new addition to the menu, so they might be 'working their way thru' that. I love Parker's. I'll def return; probably skip the swordfish though.
