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.

Absolutely wonderful experience! This must be one of the best restaurants in Atlanta or anywhere as far as I'm concerned! Great food......not pretentious......super service and beautiful environment. The price point of this restaurant is where it should be. I don't mind paying enough to get really great food but there is a point where the price is just about being "showy"
and not improving the the quality of the food.
GO TO THIS RESTAURANT! You won't be disappointed! I will certainly go back ASAP!!

The staff was very pleasant, the lighting and atmosphere were great and we enjoyed a nice evening out with good food and drinks. The Executive Chef came out to greet us and he was very friendly. Will definitely go back.

It was my husband’s 50th birthday. We had reservations for 8 and we were seated when we arrived. Other tables received bread more promptly. We didn’t receive bread until right before our appetizers arrived.

Unfortunately, after we received our meal the service was extremely slow. We appreciate the complimentary dessert my husband received for his birthday. It took a long time to order it and to receive it. When we acknowledged we were ready for the check, it took 15-20 minutes to get our checks. My son got up to get the waiter.

We’ve been to Parker’s on Ponce several times. The service is usually excellent. I hope we have a better experience next time.

Server seemed unknowledgeable about menu and ingredients. Service was slow and items were incorrectly identified on cheese plate. We found out the bottle of wine we ordered was sold out 15-20 minutes AFTER we ordered it.
This is one of our favorite restaurants & we brought his sister here for the first time to celebrate her birthday. We were disappointed that Parker’s didn’t shine like it has for us in the past.

I've always wanted to try the Parkers Sunday brunch. The wait was not a let down as the food was amazing. The server was very nice though could have been better with bringing plates and clearing plates, which is the only job for a self-service buffet. They seemed to run of plates too.

The prime rib, bacon, sausage gravy and so many other things were outstanding. Surprised at the 20% preset tip for a buffett where there isn't much in the form of service in the front of house. Also, it was a bit pricey for our 13 and 14 year olds who ate very little but still were charged about $108 for some French toast and fried chicken. It may be nice to have ala-carte options for kids. I wouldn't bring older than 12 unless they are going to eat like an adult. 12 and under is $15 and quite reasonable

Definitely want to try again without the kids.

Easter brunch. The food was good, but the temperature of the food was inconsistent. Good variety of foods to choose from and the fried chicken was fantastic!

Brunch at Parker's is always special because they only do it three times a year. Easter Brunch 2018 was fantastic! The food selection ranged from traditional breakfast items to traditional lunch items - all of which lend themselves to mix and match on several trips to the different buffet sections. There were some specials thrown in: carving station, omelette station, an assortment of cakes and pudding. Parker's well-know emphases on food freshness & quality and attentive service was evident throughout our time there.

My wife and I met another couple who we had been hoping to get together with. Everything at Parker's was superb. My wife and I had some paleo needs and they accomodated us perfectly. We ordered steaks and they were beyond incredible. My friend ordered the rack of lamb and it too was amazing. Service was totally professional and we can't wait to return.

Amazing place to eat. Very nice staff and excellent if you want a steak. Yes it costs a bit more but totally worth it. I would recommend the blue cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon as an appetizer. Wine was reasonably priced and very good. I would go back and eat there again.

Interior needs updating. The menu was outrageously expensive for even nice dining- the variety of food offerings scant. They need to update their menu from the beef laden offerings; fewer people are eating this way.The waiter was not attentive and had to be summoned throughout with excuses for not having been over-it was a slim crowd -he was old enough to be seasoned or know better. We went for the piano bar and it was nice. We won't be back.

This is one of my most favorite Atlanta restaurants. It's my "go-to" restaurant for dinner out, a special occasion, a weekend dinner with friends, and attending a private party for a friend's 50th birthday. A truly terrific restaurant.

I had a wedge salad. It was made with romaine lettuce. I think it should have been made with iceberg lettuce. Parking is a problem. It would be nice if you had valet parking.

I would recommend the restaurant for steaks.

We were seated in the side room with absolutely everyone else, while the rest of the restaurant was empty. There were at least three servers, so staff was not the reason for putting every guest in the same room. It was very loud and difficult to have a conversation. Our waiter also spoke very loudly, so that added to the issue. The food was good. I think if we had been seated in the inner dining room, it would have been a much better experience.
