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.

Basic steakhouse, nothing spectacular. I didn’t like to wait considering I made reservations, but the server was attentive and nice. Drinks were great! Steak over cooked( well done) , even though I requested medium well. The crabcakes were tasty.

Our bartender Wendy was great (sat at bar before 8:30 reservation). Our waiter, Danny was full of energy, very attentive and made sure we were taken care of.

Parker's on Ponce is a fantastic place for a really nice romantic date. The lighting is low and the piano music in the background is a great ambiance. Freddy, our server, was easy to talk to and an expert on the menu. The food was probably the best part, though. My wife and I shared the grilled octopus as an appetizer, which was the best I have ever had. Then, she had the USDA Prime Grade Filet with herb butter, mashed potatoes, and fried Brussel sprouts while I had the Prime Grade ribeye with broccoli and black truffle mac n' cheese. For dessert, we split the creme brulee. Everything was delicious. The only negative thing I could say about Parker's is that the complimentary bread and olive oil was just OK, nothing spectacular. Also, it is difficult to find parking around there so be sure to allow some extra time if you've made a reservation.

Go here. You won't be disappointed.

Filet, salad and potatoes were excellent! I hate it when the review requires more characters

Food was delicious BUT my husband’s steak was not served as ordered (served medium, ordered rare). They kindly took it back to prepare another, but the second steak arrived after the rest of the party was done with dinner.

The food and service were outstanding. Everything from the cocktails, appetizers, entree and dessert was perfect. Our waiter was very attentive and the manager came by a couple of times to ensure we were happy. Try the filet! On the drive home from dinner we were discussing how we’re already looking forward to our next dinner at Parker’s.

Aged Kansas steak was perfect

We had an 8:15 reservation on Valentines Day. Our entrees were served at 9:40. My husband was served 2 salads 20 min apart (2nd was duplicate). This pushed back kitchen on entree. When told it was a duplicate, trash from table was put in the second salad as it was removed. Broccoli was overdone not crisp and poorly presented.. open Table users can find many steak houses in the ATL with better value.

Great food, romantic and very high end. Felt very private and cozy. The bacon slab appetizer was awesome. We had the crab cakes and scallops and both meals were perfect.

I took my fiancé out for Valentine's Day and he loved the atmosphere and food. He had never been but would love to go back. It is one of my favorite spots and I wanted to introduce him to it.
