The food, drinks and staff at this restaurant are really outstanding. It also has a great patio and bar area for people watching.

What used to be a restaurant with finesse has become heavy handed. It’s all about big portions of mediocre food. The rooms are noisy and devoid of any pleasing decor except for the fireplaces. The outside seating is not appealing at all.

Good size portions - plenty of choice - was able to sit outside which was a bonus. Nice area to wander around. Staff very helpful.

Parker's is an excellent steak house restaurant. The 36 ounce Porterhouse was perfectly prepared and two of our group finished it without difficulty. The bar is good and the service is friendly. I would cheerfully come back here again.

I have eaten her as a participant of an investors seminar and the food was amazing. I ate here 2 weeks later and the food was no better than your average all-you-can-eat lunch buffet. Sadly, the pricing was unaffected.

It is not often that I describe dinner as an experience, Parker's did provide a truly wonderful experience when my wife, my daughter, and I ate there recently. We were in town to meet my daughter's future in-laws, but did not have plans for dinner...More

Parker's on Ponce is a wonderful steakhouse with beautiful decor, impeccable service and exquisite dining. The food was amazing. Each course was expertly prepared, played beautifully and tasted divine. We had a New York Strip, Scallops and Chocolate Mousse pie for dessert. The cocktails were...More

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.
