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 went to dinner for my birthday. This was my first time eating at Parker’s. My steak was delicious 😋 And I received a gift-a delicious slice of cheesecake! I will return. Our server was Erin and she was very friendly and attentive.

We celebrated my husband's birthday and our waiter an waitress were amazing and the food was incredible. I was disappointed that as large as the place was, that they were sitting everyone crowded together side by side tables instead of spacing us out for a little bit of privacy. The opentable menu and the menu at Parkers is slightly different, but still amazing things to choose from. Thanks for an incredible Sunday evening. sa

We arrived a few minutes prior to our reservation and we were seated promptly. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and Parker’s staff made us feel special w a handwritten note. The appetizers and entrees were outstanding! My stuffed pasta was vegetarian and it was still very filling & delicious. The noise was a little too much, maybe because we were near the piano. Overall I loved the warm, dark ambiance inside & would come back again 100%! You need to try this place out!

Birthday dinner for 4. Would have been better if we hadn’t been seated in a party room with a large Birthday celebration.
Sitting in the front of the restaurant would have been better.

Birthday celebration. Service was excellent but my entree had too much pepper on the scallops. Very difficult for me to finish my dinner . We dined on the terrace which was lovely.

The Brussel sprouts were seasoned to perfection and melted in my mouth. The shrimp and grits, one of the best flavor-filled dishes I've tasted at Parkers.

Been coming here for years, and am wondering if our most recent experience there was just a symptom of a temporary Covid-era swoon, or a more serious indication of this venue's real decline. When the manager of an upscale restaurant with $94 steaks is informed that the roasted vegetables in a Fall salad entree are raw and inedible, he should be able to come up with a response a little more substantial than "I'll tell that to the cooks." A long-time manager recently left the restaurant, and we can only hope that a lot of the restaurant's quality didn't exit along with him.

Tasty food, but not a top notch steakhouse experience. We had to pack our own food, clear away our dishes, and the crumbs weren't cleaned away in between dishes.

Steak was way overcooked. I asked for medium rare and got medium well to well. I should have known this was going to happen when I had to say medium rare twice. Since I had not been out during the pandemic I forgot about this quirk of dining. Please stop doing this to “certain” customers.
