Description: 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' seven 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.

“Great Bar - Really Nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

This restaurant has a great bar. I really like wide bars and bar stools with backs. Great place to eat dinner and the bar staff are really attentive and nice. I just wish they would add a hamburger to the menu.... Not always looking for a steak or fish....

“Great Steakhouse!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

We ate here for a rehearsal dinner and it was literally the best steak I've ever had. Tender and flavorful. Get the baked potatoe if you can with the bacon and the gorgonzola! Amazing. The room where we had the rehearsal dinner was quiet and secluded so we could all talk. The staff was great and on the ball with bringing our drinks. Great place to eat!

“Upscale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012 via mobile

Parkers has been open for three years now, glad to see it doing well.
Definitely a great place to go if you are celebrating an occasion or want a finer dining experience. The staff is friendly and attentive, and the food is delicious with nice size portions.

“Good steak, service, pricing in Decatur”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

We tried this restaurant after seeing a scout mob deal, and am happy I did.
They are certainly a steak restaurant. I got the larger NY strip, cooked perfectly, my wife got the larger filet - cooked perfectly.
We both like rare steak - most restaurants over cook them, not Parker's. Both were prepared perfectly. Sides were great. Our son, who is 6, got a vegetable and pasta dish, which he loved. He actually has quite a developed palate, and never orders off the kids menu.
I always reserve 5 stars for restaurants that blow me away. This one was great. You won't be disappointed, it's just not in the top 5 meals I have ever eaten, and Del Monaco's steak in Las Vegas wasn't either. Parkers is everything a steak place should be - go and enjoy - it isn't Bones, though your wallet will thank you for that.
