Parker's on Ponce
hash browns, broccoli, crawfish hollandaise
Don't waste your money. I have been wanting to try Parker's for a couple years and since they have outdoor dining during a pandemic this was the perfect time. I had a ribeye steak, which was very good. Hashbrowns were good as well. I topped my steak with a 6-ounce fried lobster tail and my husband had a 12-ounce fried lobster tail as his entree. Bad idea. The lobster tails were overbreaded with a thick overcooked breading that we both peeled off in order to actually taste the lobster. I have had fried lobster tails at other restaurants and even make them at home sometime. All they need is a light coating of flour or cornmeal. Mashed potatoes were swimming in butter. The greens were tasty. The grilled octopus appetizer ($17) was tasty but not enough octopus and way too many potatoes.I was very disappointed in the overall experience. Asked if we wanted bread. We got 2 rolls. Not worth $200 ( including one glass of wine)
Delicious food, beautiful presentation and wonderful wait staff.
Parkers On Ponce was a great experience. We were the only people in the area of our inside table. Freddie gave amazing service! The food was delicious as always. Definitely will be back.
Had a great server, Antione I think. Very knowledgable and very professional. Perfect dining experience! Will return!!!!!
Parker's on Ponce had great service. The waitress was attentive and helpful with menu selections. The menu has a good variety and nice options for all dietary needs. The restaurant took every precaution to make our dining experience safe and satisfying. We had great drinks and our meals were tasty. I had the wedge sale with jumbo shrimp which was absolutely delicious. My husband had the crab cake and he was fairly quiet during the meal because his mouth was always full. The portions were good, you won't go away hungry. It was our anniversary and the hostess asked upon check in if we were celebrating anything special. Once they knew it was our anniversary, they gave us a nice hand written card and a complimentary dessert. Would recommend and dine again.
My good friend and I had a wonderful time. Maggie was our server and her customer service was impeccable. We will definitely be back again soon and oh yes, the food was delicious. I had the flatiron steak with Parker's Salad and she had the Prime Rib, amazing, need I say more.
Great place for any occasion!! This was our first visit, but will definitely not be the last.
My daughters took me here for my birthday, and we had a great experience! Jeffery, our waiter, was kind and accommodating. The food was delicious and well portioned. We would definitely come back!
Cozy, warm, friendly, country inn atmosphere with sophisticated cocktails, great wine list and terrific recipes. Very high quality cuisine. Highly attentive service.
Food better even than usual. Great service from Danny.
We had the glazed bone in pork chop and salmon. Everything was expertly prepared. The highlight was the baked to order cranberry bread pudding. Simply divine. We enjoyed patio seating and were spoiled with the caring, attentive service. Street parking in downtown Decatur is free after 6 pm, an added bonus. A great evening!
Wonderful evening sitting out on their patio for dinner. Excellent steaks & lamp chops were enjoyed. Service always top notch!
Always a good experience at Parker's. Great food, great service, and simply the best patio in Decatur.
Food and service were A1!
My experience was AMAZING!! I am so glad to have gone to this restaurant. I will definitely be going back!
We will definitely be back!
Social distances was in full effect! Service was great!staff was warm and friendly. One of my favorite places. Missed the live music 🎶
I'm embarrassed that I didn't get pics of the "before we ate". This place was amazing; from the host to the waiter to the manager; everyone was courteous, polite, efficient, and knowledgeable. I had filet, broccoli, and a loaded baked potato. This was my first time having one loaded with a mild blue cheese (because I detest everything about blue cheese - so I thought). Tim had a Salmon that was raised in a small island off of Denmark (we must visit!). Here's the end result of our visit!
Provides sufficient social distancing between tables inside. All employees were very courteous.
Great in every way. Service was sensational. Appetizers were great (mini Beef Wellington) and house salad. My wife had prime rib and I had the New York strip with truffle butter and both were cooked perfectly. Both melted in your mouth. Sides of fried brussel sprouts and creamed spinach were amazing. Finished with white chocolate bread pudding with cruising, probably the best bread pudding we have ever had. We cannot wait to go back.
I took my husband there for his 50th birthday. It was nice and quiet just for the 2 of us.
Parker's on Ponce was a delight! The food was tasty, the service impeccable, and the ambiance lovely. I had the scallops with fried brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes with brown butter. Everything was delicious! My husband and son both had steak- they said it was one of the best they have ever had. In addition, my son got the truffle macaroni and cheese. He isn't a fan of mushrooms, but raved about the mac & cheese. We were celebrating a birthday, and they offered a complimentary dessert. We were all full, so they packed it up for us to go. Our server was attentive and had a wonderful personality. This was the first time we ate out since the pandemic began. We chose to sit outside and were pleased with the space between tables. The servers all wore masks consistently and were conscientious about cleanliness. We will certainly return to Parker's on Ponce.
Always excellent. Appreciate all the efforts made towards COVID safety.
Everything was perfect for Sunday afternoon dining. We dined outdoors. The weather was ideal. Jazz music. Impeccable service. Had the prime rib - awesome!
Thank you for a great experience.
Everything was excellent. Prime rib, pork chops, shrimp & grits, chicken, bacon wrapped dates, calamari, not a bad dish in the bunch. White chocolate cranberry bourbon bread pudding might be the best dessert I've had in a really long time. Highly recommend Parker's to anyone looking for a great meal, especially in these Covid times as they're serving up incredible food even with all the virus precautions.
My waitress was amazing. The place was clean and service was outstanding!
Great service, excellent steak, salmon, and desert.
Parker's has simply the best outdoor patio in all of Decatur, bar none - an idyllic European style cafe in a courtyard. If you like quiet classy places for a bottle of wine or a great cocktail and great food, come here.
Fabulous food! The steak was perfect. Still a little strange to see so few tables, but good to be out!
This is always a good experience! I always go here to celebrate special occasions.
We love Parker ‘s, every time we go we asked for Danny. Danny is an amazing server
Amazing experience and service
Really excellent place! So glad we chose it to celebrate our anniversary!
Food, atmosphere and service were great! The octopus is tender and flavorful. Passionfruit Paloma was amazing and the NY strip cooked perfectly medium rare.
Service was superb and the meal was delightful. We had the mini Wellington’s which did not disappoint and the shrimp and grits was indeed colossal!
Parker's on Ponce never disappoints when it comes to location, ambiance, and fresh food. This particular trip my husband and I enjoyed our meal, yet the mac making my birthday discount that much the more appreciated. We will definitely return as we have so many times in the past.
Parker’s is always fantastic. They always treat us right and the food is great!
Excellent service. Octopus was fantastic. Steak was done just right and flavorful. Wine selection was good and our choice was perfect for the evening.
Parker’s is consistently a go to for me and my family. It is a neighborhood gem and they always deliver quality and service.
Went for a birthday dinner on a perfect summer evening to sit on the patio. Food, service and setting were all first rate!
