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.

Of course the Filet Mignon and the Bernaise sauce were incredible, that seems a given. The Hash Browns and the Collard Greens were wonderful as well. And for that matter the smoked salmon dip. Good stiff drinks, great server, great night.

First time and will definitely be coming back. Our server Erin was superb! Even though my dish did not come out the way it was supposed to. It was still good and my husband enjoyed his meal which was the main goal! 5 stars for service, ambiance and food! Thank you for a memorable evening

It’s a nice place with good attentive and knowledgeable service, pleasant ambiance and welcoming attitude. While decently prepared, the food was uninspired in presentation and taste. We sent back a very bland and ordinary truffle mac&cheese and porterhouse steak warm not hot when it arrived with no extraordinary flavor.

We think it is a solid option for dining out with friends and family but not a destination restaurant.

My husband and I went for his birthday last night and had an incredible experience. Erin was our server and provided amazing service. She gave us detailed information about the specials and other menu items. She was kind, attentive and energetic. The food was great. We got the Porterhouse for 2 with truffle macaroni and cheese and broccoli. It was perfect. We will absolutely go back soon!

We had something to celebrate and chose Parker's on Ponce. Food was excellent and our waiter and assistant did an excellent job. She was learning and was very attentive. We'll be taking some family to this restaurant when they come from Canada. Menu choices for lunch were great as well as the selection of desserts.

I have not been to Parkers On Ponce in a while, due to our current health restrictions, but have always enjoyed the food and ambiance. Last night was no exception. While one hopes that the food will be good, this meal was exceptional! Hangar steak is difficult to cook properly and the chef did an excellent job. It was cooked perfectly…just as I requested - Pittsburg Medium Rare-hard sear and bright pink inside. It was cut correctly so it was tender, not stringy. I loved the asparagus as it was thin, not like tree limbs as is served in many restaurants. The pepper coating added a wonderful little zip to the flavor. For dessert, I had Creme Broulet. While enjoyable and refreshing, the top was a little over-torched and dark brown giving it a bit of bitter aftertaste. Kudos on the 1821 Smash cocktail! Reminded me of the old drink…High Ball, but with a bit of a bitter cherry flavor. All at the table enjoyed their meals and the plating was beautiful. A note on the things you don’t usually see…when I returned from the rest room my napkin was refolded on the table. That extra touch that sets a great restaurant apart. Go, relax and enjoy a night at Parkers On Ponce!

This place was awesome. From the time we walked into the door until we left it was just great. Danny our server was the best and the food was delicious. The steak cut like butter. Would recommend this place to anyone and it's right here in our neighborhood.

One of the best restaurant meals I have had in a very long time. The food was absolutely amazing! We had the filet mignon and could not ask for a better steak. I would highly recommend the dark chocolate mousse dessert. It literally melts in your mouth! A piece of food art for sure.

Our waitress Erin was great, very nice & attentive as well as Justin the floor manager. I like how they make you feel special if you're celebrating an occasion with them. The occasion was my sister's birthday. There were a few hiccups during our meal: wrong temp for my sister's steak, wrong steak order was placed for me, appetizer was skimpy compared to table next to us. The food was really good, I enjoyed it but my sister was disappointed with hers but still had a great flavor, if only her temp was right on her steak we were going to order takeout as well. She felt since her steak wasn't right, ordering something else would not be right too. We both wanted to order lamb chops to go. Nice restaurant, not sure if would come back though

Good experience overall, but some errors needed fixing (which were, but the timing of a 'cook over' delayed the dinner-for-2 ambiance). Eating outside was a plus, but no cover... luckily no rain. Live music was nice.
