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.

It's so rare to order a steak and get done to your specifications. Parker's never disappoints.

Dined 6 days ago

The host staff was very disrespectful. We had reservations and arrived on time, the restaurant was not crowded but we had to wait 10 minutes before we could be seated. Another group came into restaurant and was seated immediately while we waited. Then my wife and I were seated as far back of the restaurant near the restrooms while there were plenty of empty tables in other parts.
I will never eat their again due to the lack of respect from the hostess staff.

Parker’s has become our go to place for special celebrations. While the atmosphere is inviting for the everyday diner we live an hour away and the food makes it worth the drive. We celebrated my in laws anniversary and they have not stopped raving about it.

Love Parkers. Danny is the best we only ask for him when we come here. Chef Trey is amazing in the kitchen.

We have been to Parkers on Ponce many times and have always enjoyed. The service is very good and not being "bugged" by the server. The food is excellent and never had any compaints.
Simply put, this restaurant is one of the my best.

The only drawback is the parking. There is an idiot who walks around the parking lot with hand out and asks for $5.00 for the parking spot. He doesn't do anything, doesn't say much and when asked what he does, he simply keeps his mouth shut. It would be much better if there were meters instead of this guy as I am always wondering if he is going to break in to any vehicle. Street parking is the best, but not always lucky to find a spot.

We visited from out of town and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at Parkers. It's in a fun area of Decatur and there are many options. We have tried a few other places but Parkers is the best. Everything that the table ordered was exceptional. Most of the table had steaks that are as good as or better than a high end steakhouse. We had a table near the kitchen but it was still very nice with multiple fireplaces and ambiance. We will be back.

My first visit and I don’t know why. Four of us celebrated my birthday in style. We shared the Grilled Slab Bacon appetizer, the thick cut bacon is made and smoked in-house and was accompanied with baby arugula, picked shallot, and orange-balsamic glaze.
My wife shared the Spinach salad with me. I’m a sucker for candied pecans! The miso-lemon vinaigrette checked the sweetness of the pecans.
Parker’s is a steak house but offers seafood and other ‘lighter’ fare. I chose the aged USDA Prime Ribeye though the bone-in Dry Aged Kansas City Strip was tempting. The Ribeye was cooked perfectly and had the flavor I desired.
We shared several sides icluding the fries, sauteed spinach, and the Maple-Miso Glazed Fried Brussels with Apple slices. I’m not a fan of Brussel Sprouts but these wete superb!
A dining pleasure and I will have to come up with another special occasion soon to return to samle the seafood and maybe the Black Truffle Mac and Cheese.

Food is always delicious here. Service is great too. Great place to take a date or for a special occasion.

The restaurant staff was amazing and our server was very kind. My only issue was the food came out cold twice but was quickly fixed when complaint was issued. The food was over priced for what it was unfortunately. Wine selection was limited but great options. Not sure if I’ll be back :/
