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.

    We had the pork belly appetizer and filet mignon special with a delicious black garlic miso topping. Our server, Houston, was awesome. Very knowledgeable and attentive.

    The ambience and lighting are great for a date with your significant other. You can hear the elegant music quietly and still have an audible conversation. The food was delectable, especially the ribeye.

    Food was superb! I believe the server was a little overwhelmed for the time of day and the amount of people in the room, however, we didn’t hold it against him. We would just expect a different level of attention and customer service when we are paying such a price for the meals we ordered which are common for the area. If more than 15-20 people are collectively ordering in one area, there should be more than 1 server. We waited 30 minutes from the time we were seated to the time we received bread and drinks. For an area with 2 hour maximum limit parking, that doesn’t leave a lot of time to actually order, receive, and eat your meal before your parking time has runout and you HAVE to leave the premises to move your car.

    Food/Drinks were delicious. Service quite good. We used our Dining Out Passbook which gives us one free entree when another is ordered. We only received credit for one drink, not our free entree.

    Honestly one of the worst meals I’ve had in a long time and had heard only good things going in. Service and food was more Long Horn Steakhouse than the must try Independent Steakhouse we were expecting. Passing down drinks, servers reaching over guests to clear plates, plates cleared before diners we done, appetizers, salads and mains were note coursed out, and I can't speak about desert as I server brought the check before we were able to order. Food was lack luster, one salad was huge, 2 were tiny, all three were brought out at different times. Porterhouse for 2 was more T-Bone for 1, and had zero seasoning. Comment card included with the check, I asked to be contacted. The General Manager said she apologized for the service, saying that was not to their standard, and apologized for the kitchen as she said it was very busy. She sent a $50 gift certificate as a "Try Us Again", being that the amount didn't cover a portion of the Gratuity we paid of one of the worst meals we have had, I advised them to void the certificate, as we will not dine there again.

    Parker's on Ponce is a nice restaurant. The atmosphere is very nice. The service is always great! However, the food is just okay. There are some standout dishes that are great like the bacon wrapped dates stuffed with blue cheese. However, our main courses were just okay (filet mignon, salmon, short rib). The wine selection and cocktail menu have good options. It was hard to hear at our table as the restuarant was very noisy and the beautiful piano playing was very close to our table. This is a good choice for a date night or to try something in downtown Decatur.

    This was a first visit for us to Parker's. It was a very enjoyable experience. We were quickly seated, and the waiter was there in just a minuet to get our drink and appetizer order. The service here is outstanding. The food was served piping hot and it was absolutely delicious. The meat was prepared and cooked to perfection. The side dishes were also delicious. The prices are a little high but the portions are generous and for the entire experience it was well worth it. Great place to celebrate a special occasion. I look forward to the next time we are in Decatur to dine at Parker's on Ponce!

    This is a favorite spot of move for a low key nice dinner with good vibes and relaxing live music However; this is the 2nd time I’ve made reservations and was told I had to wait 30 minutes to be seated . Recently on 1/6 it was a staff meeting and prior to that it was a private party. Not sure why I would be allowed to make the reservations and they not be honored. This really perplexed me. Not professional. Hopefully this will not become a habit.

    I've eaten here twice. The stakes and food is very very good. Both times I thought the cocktails were on the weak side and my martini had ice pieces in it? Next time, I'll get a glass of wine.
