My family and I went here for the Mother's Day brunch buffet. The whole thing was managed terribly! We had reservations but we still had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. And even then we had to sit outside where it was unseasonably cold and windy. The staff did not apologize for this and didn't seem to care. The service continued to be slow once we got seated. How is this possible when it's a buffet you ask? Well apparently they were short on clean plates because we had to wait for some to be washed. The buffet itself had a large variety of food, which tasted fine. However, based on the extremely poor service I would not recommend Parker's on Ponce to anyone. There are plenty of other restaraunts in Decatur with good food AND good service!

If you like a nice wine and dine atmosphere downtown Decatur, Parker's is certainly the place. Decided I would try it out one day because I was on the train and didn't have anything else to do, and it was and is excellent. Try the collards. They are spiced and scruptious.

Parker's has the best steaks around. They are always moist, juicy, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. The steaks require no steak sauce. The tuna is very good also. Whenever I hear of some one looking for good steaks, I always suggest Parker's.
Parker's has a long wine list, terrific food, and OK service. We have been five or six times since they opened and the steaks are always delicious. The service is usually good to start, but slows to a crawl after the apps...you can set your watch by it. Good bar scene to grab a drink before or after dinner. Would highly recommend trying Parker's if you haven't already.

Everytime I get the chance to goto Parker's on Ponce I ALWAYS have a great time! I always feel welcomed the moment I walk into the door. Everything from their fried Calamari to the Shrimp & Scallops Linguini is exquisite! And as for the deserts...WOW! My boyfriend & I ate the pecan pie sundae... It was amazing! Everytime I come to the Decatur area I look forward to coming here! And when I know someones coming into town I make sure to tell them where Parkers is at.

I have eaten here a few times now and have to say it has become my favorite place in Decatur! The food is always great, especially the Porterhouse for two. If you went to any other steakhouse in town it would be at least $20.00 more for the same or lesser quality steak. I can't believe they sell anything else to couples. The staff is pretty much the same people that opened it a year ago...which speaks highly of Chris Scott and his brother. The service that the staff provides can't be matched in Decatur! Like I said...my favorite place!
I have enjoyed several tasty meals at Parker's on Ponce and highly recommend you experience this wonderful new restaurant yourself. The owners are very attentive and hands-on and the attention to detail shows. The fontina and roasted vegetable dip is a great starter. The steaks are always a winning choice, especially with one of the special toppings. The truffle mac & cheese makes for a decadent side dish. But my personal favorite is the white chocolate bread pudding with the Maker’s Mark caramel sauce. I can not say enough about that caramel sauce it's so so so good!!! I could grab a spoon and eat a great big bowl of just that sauce alone. Yum!

We have continued to make this our number one place to eat in Decatur. Can't give enough kudos about the food, staff, service, and atmosphere.
What more can you want?
Location? They have that too!
Well I mentioned last time-- wheat rolls as an option would make it perfect. And guess what?
They heard and made that as an option. Whay other restuarant would do that from a customer request?
Can't wait till spring finally gets here so we can sit on the patio and enjoy our meal and relish the sights and sounds of the Square.
If you haven't tried Parker's on Ponce-- you have missed a real treat and experoience you'll return to again and again.
And occasionally you'll even see a celebrity or two.
If that's not your bag-- the folks at Parker's will make you feel like one!
We are residents of Decatur and eat out very often. We were very frequent Mick's customers and were sad to see them close. But Parkers has definitely ""one upped them"" in food and with a beautiful atmosphere and style.This location--particularly the patio-- is best in Decatur for people watching, atmosphere, shade-- as we LOVE to eat outdoors anytime we can. Their patio is suberb. We have eaten there dozens and dozens of times and have never been disappointed with food or service even one time. The servers are all very good and we have some that have been absolutlety delightful, attentive, fun, and very friendly.The BEST! Everyone makes you feel very welcome from Host to Managers to Owners-- as well as servers. Truly our Number 1 Decatur favorite! All they need is those WHEAT rolls as an option they'll be PERFECT!
