Attentive staff, very friendly without being obtrusive. My food has always been cooked to perfection. For the atmosphere and quality of the food it is very reasonably priced. Parking can be a little challenging.

If you don't want to leave Decatur, this is probably the best you can do with regard to steaks. But compared to the steakhouses in Atlanta, this place is woefully lacking. First the service - the hostess was very nice, polite and showed us to...More

Food was very good. I had the steak which was properly prepared. Some others in my party had the chicken which they raved about. Not a big fan of their house salad, they should put a butter lettuce or Boston lettuce salad on the menu....More

Second try with PoP; we do like the place but feel it is underwhelming compared to other hi-dollar steakhouses. This trip the service was their weakness...probably a new server. My wife's dish was spot-on (Salmon) my steak was less then excellent thus the score today...More

Parker’s is a nice, family owned spot with very good lamb chops. Ask for mint jelly. The location is good and it’s a great date night.

We love to go in the Fall and Winter and sit by the fire in the back dining room. It is quiet there and very cozy. We love the steaks and we always order at least one mac-and-cheese with truffles!

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.
