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.

The loud pony tailed waiter would be less out of place in a truck stop.

Of course I would recommend Parker's to a friend, and everyone else for that matter! I would say to take advantage of the 'Special' servings too, e.g., Mother's Day, Father's Day Brunches and any/all of the Wine or Whiskey tasting Dinners too. Always fabulous!!! One of my favorite places in the Atlanta area!

As a nutritarian, I LOVE the tofu steak! It is delicious and a nice change from the plain salad with vinegar or steamed vegetables options at most restaurants.

Good atmosphere. Waitress seem to be very confused on menu items and charges, that was the biggest downfall. One example, I ordered garlic butter, wasn't sure I had it, ask the manager, he told me it was a sauce for the lambchops, but the waitress said he was wrong it was the garlic butter. Lamb chops was fair but could be better. They are too thick to cook in a small amount of time. They need to slow cook or marinate for a couple of days. 16 oz ribeye was fair, a little tough in certain areas, not worth the money. Salmon dip, can't really taste the salmon but it was fair. Bake potato was big and good. Asparagus and mash potatoes were also good.

Went for my birthday using a $25 off of $50 invitation. Service was excellent and the food was delicious but I do think the prices are rather high. Definitely a place to go for a special occasion.

David was great with everyone. He answered any/all questions we had related to the menu. He always hovered just enough to remind us he was there if we needed anything. David’s actions may seem standard and unworthy of merit, however, it was the simplicity of his actions which contributed to a great meal, and a fantastic evening amongst friends. Thank you to David. And thank you to the entire staff of Parker’s on Ponce. We all had a wonderful time.

A little pricey but the food was very good. I ordered the shrimp and grits and it was very good but the portion was large so I couldn’t finish it. A fried had the 10oz filet mignon which looked delicious and was cooked perfectly.
My husband ordered the wedge salad and it was very good. Overall it was very good.

Awesome even if I did not have the Groupon $20 for $40’s worth of food. When you spend this type money eating out you want to feel like it was worth it. This is my 2nd time and there’s not a doubt in my mind that it is truly worth every cent. Enjoy 😊

We attended Parker's excellent Easter Brunch in April. The buffet was extensive with many breakfast and dinner items. The shrimp and grits and Big Green Egg smoked lamb were particularly memorable. The desserts were amazing and delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. They had a reasonably priced French champagne.

Imthe service was excellent. The drinks were perfect! It was my birthday and they gave me a comp dessert of my choosing. The steak was good but not melt in your mouth the way we expected for $75. Sides were very good, brussel sprouts and hash browns but nothing gourmet or superbly different.the arugula salad was ok. Not the tender lettuce im used to... was big tougher pieces of arugula. We are very seasoned dinners so we tend to be harder to please. This place is really lovely and we shall return.

Date night - 2 of us split a cocktail and 1 of the cheapest bottles of wine, along with 2 smaller entrees, a cup of soup, and a dessert. No coffee....no salad...$10 for a cup of vegetable soup? Service was good until we sat with dirty empty plates for 15 minutes. I got up to go to the bathroom and found my waiter hanging out in the wait station. We had a reservation for Sat. night -- the 2 hostesses loudly decided amongst themselves that we could sit on the front porch and they'd find us a waiter (as they did for other porch tables). The initial greeting had been "Can I help you?" I restrained the urge to help the trainee with her language. I like their porch but ...?! $150.00 before the tip. The food is always good here, but we can find way better things to do with $150.00. I don't even know what to suggest.
