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.

I celebrated my birthday at Parker's on Ponce and can't say enough about how excellent the whole experience was. The staff were friendly, courteous and made sure to make things special (the details were not lost on me!) and the food was spectacular. Everything was well curated and seasoned. I left full but not to a level of discomfort and I didn't feel I needed to hold back and at the same time the cost was reasonable for the food and service provided. Would recommend this place, hands down.

One of the best restaurants in Decatur, GA. The food is creative and presented artistically. Usually quiet and the service friendly. Great for getting together with friends and/or family. Excellent for celebrating special occasions.

Had a wonderful smoked salmon appetizer, followed by dinner special scallops with cheese grits. The appetizer was outstanding! Service was wonderful. Very attentive waitress who went the extra mile to ensure the meal was served at a perfect pace.

My husband and I arrived with a friend we hadn't seen in a long time. It was a quiet Tuesday night at Parker's on Ponce. We were happy with the service, the food and the atmosphere. It was the perfect place to catch up with this friend. I would definitely recommend Parker's on Ponce.

Food was good but service was exceptional! My husband has a shell fish allergy. Server came back to the table, after taking our order, to suggest a different side due to everything fried being fried in the same grease. Never, have we ever, had a server take the time or show this level of concern. The food could sux and we would still go back based on this one servers kindness and attention to detail.

We had a great experience at Parker's on Ponce as we always do. The wine recommendation (Amancaya) was great! Most of the table got steaks, I got the bone in pork chop, all were delicious. I particularly loved the collard greens that the pork chop was served on. We were too full to have dessert this time, but I will always be sad that they took the Chocolate Chip Cookies off of the dessert menu!

Exquisite food & exceptional service! 6oz filet mignon w herb butter was superb!!! Sweet tea was perfectly sweetened. Wait staff was friendly, helpful with food selections and frequent (enough, not too much) service. Lighting was good but my preference would be for dimmer and/or indirect lighting. Noise level could be lower in the main dining area. Overall experience was exceptional. Highly recommend Parker’s!

Best steak I have EVER had. It melted in your mouth, yes I could have eaten it without any teeth. From out of town but will go back next time I'm anywhere near Decatur...

We really enjoyed our Birthday celebration with family. Service was excellent and staff was attentive but did not impose on our family time. The food was delicious! Steaks were perfectly cooked and salads were great. We ate the best cheesecake we have ever had! A dessert with a candle was brought to our birthday person without us even asking. We thought this was very thoughtful of our server. We look forward to returning in the near future and highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

I took my husband here for an early birthday dinner (day before). Upon entering the restaurant and giving my name, they greeted him with "Happy birthday, sir!" This continued as a theme throughout it meal!

The food was delicious from start to finish. We started with the flash fried calamari with peppadews, sweet tea for me and a Maker's and Coke for my guy. The calamari was tender with a crispy coating, and the tang of the peppadews was a nice contrast.

Hubby got the 14 oz. prime ribeye cooked medium, and he said it was just right. I tasted it, and the seasoning was on point.

I opted for the shrimp and grits. Yep, at a steak place and lemme tell ya - they're some of the best I've ever had! It was a big bowl of creamy stone ground grits with carmelized onions, spicy andouille, and 4 huge shrimp in a magical sauce. It was so rich I couldn't finish it, but you best believe I took the leftovers with me.

So now, dessert. Sweetie pie loves creme brulee (and beer, and basketball, and football - go figure) and that was one dish of deliciousness according to him and me. Slena, our sweet and friendly server, put a candle on top! The birthday theme was carried through the entire meal. Thank you, and bravo!

I got the cheesecake with seasonal berry sauce. Delicious and a huge serving. Three fourths of it went right into the bag with my shrimp and grits. Slena even brought me some extra berry sauce. No doubt, tomorrow's lunch will be epic!

We'll most definitely be going back - no special occasion required!
