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)

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
