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 steaks (and more) on the Decatur Square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Parker's on Ponce is a great place for dinner. The atmosphere was great as was the food, service and wine selection. I was surprised it wasn't busier on a Saturday night. I got the rack of lamb and it was prepared perfectly. We've ordered from Parker's on several occasions for take out, but dining in was an even better experience. They also have a lovely patio to enjoy this fall - no extra charge for people-watching.

“Better Than Buckhead”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

This was a return visit for us, since we enjoyed our meals the last time. If you want a great steak, grilled to perfection, delivered with prompt and courteous service at a reasonable price then look no further. We had reservations for 7:00 on a Friday and were seated immediately. My wife had the Irish Onion Soup (like French, but made with beer) and Filet Mignon. I had a salad and a New York Strip. The waiter stood by the table until we cut our steaks to confirm they were done to our liking. They were perfect. Parker's is right off the Square in Decatur, so you should go early and visit the shops. This is truly a neighborhood restaurant and for my money, the steaks here are better than Buckhead. You can park your own car too.

“Comfortable & Intimate private room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

Wedding rehearsal dinner here was lovely. The staff were helpful, the food wad good and the room was genuinely "private" (and located near the bathrooms allowing both the private party and the general patrons to access them without tripping over each other!)
