Management is unresponsive to common sense requests and service was quite lacking. One server for at least 7 tables outside. Food prices have increased at least 20% and this get is starting to lose its luster.

The food was excellent but wish we had a better waiter! I am not a complainer but we were there celebrate my husband's birthday and I was hugely disappointed with our waiter. The waiter refused to take out picture due to covid, which I understand except he had no problem picking up our silverware, wine glass, etc.. He was no help on what to order (no suggestions) and when we ordered a dessert we told him we were looking for something to share (4 of us) so we asked about (what we though was like a tiramisu) was instead vanilla ice cream with a shot of espresso, so why bring plates for it when it was like a mini Espresso float? Horrible! And I also thought they might bring my husband an extra treat for his birthday like most restaurants do. I really wanted this to be special but was very disappointing. The waiter next to us was extremely upbeat and friendly, I'm sure that would have changed how I felt about the restaurant. Like I said, the food was excellent, just bad experience on the rest. Maybe he was having a bad day or hates his job. But for a "not so cheap meal", sure was disappointing.

Patio dining felt very safe. They have wipes outside to clean off the ping pong paddles before you play, and require masks if you leave your table. Food was delicious, as always.

This restaurant has always been one of our favorites which is why my partner and I chose to celebrate our 18th anniversary with dinner at no. 246. The service was outstanding, and the kitchen was very accommodating to my vegan diet and my allergy to soy. The food is always amazing at this Ford Fry restaurant, but it was exceptionally delicious on our last visit for our anniversary dinner.
Also, they are doing a great job of keeping guests socially distanced and they are not seating tables immediately next to each other. We were seated at a two-top, and the restaurant did not seat any other parties at either of the tables to our immediate right or left. They are enforcing rules about guests wearing masks when entering, leaving, and walking around the restaurant. We felt safe dining there.

We enjoyed our anniversary dinner on Saturday. Zach was our server and although the food was remarkable, his demeanor and personality was the best part of our experience. He was very knowledgeable of the menu; especially the drink selections. We enjoyed the No. 246 meatball and the arugula, apple and blue cheese salad for our appetizers. We shared the chicken marsala for two for our entrée. The only suggestion is to slightly warm the almond cake before serving. Due to city guidelines, you must wear a mask when moving about the restaurant. The restaurant does have paper masks available if you forget to bring your own. Overall, the experience was a delight and we really enjoyed our evening.

We will be back!

246 absolutely NEVER disappoints. The food is amazing, the staff is delightful, the ambiance is perfect - It’s my go-to favorite!!! They now have a very safe socially distanced outdoor patio in the back, so you are able to enjoy a safe evening out in Decatur.

I LOVE all their food, but my son and I split the Chicken Marsala for two this time and it was DIVINE!! My hubby had the Red Snapper and it was perfect. YUM!!!

Had a wonderful date night with my hubby, our first real one since the pandemic started! I love their cheesy bread but the flatbread didn’t disappoint and the drinks were good too! Service was great and their outdoor patio area is really nice in the back. It does have loose rock so be careful in wearing heels!

I got the Caesar salad and I should’ve asked about anchovies when I ordered. The salad was so fishy I ate two bites and that was it. Big chunks of fish all throughout. I then had the Casio E Pepe pasta and it was very, very salty! I had to box up the majority of it and eat it for lunch over the next two days because the salt was so overpowering. I didn’t say anything to the server because she was SO sweet and nice I didn’t want to make a big deal about it. Dessert was great :) I just hope this eatery doesn’t become a “hit or miss” like so many others.

The waitress, I think Diane or Dianna, was excellent. Very cordial and friendly. She had a very warm personality that was very inviting. Made us very comfortable for first timers at your restaurant. The bartender on duty made an excellent Old Fashioned w/Blanton's. we visited on Monday, around 5:30pm, 9/14

My wife's fish was excellent (I believe it was halibut amandine on a corn puree ). Very very good. My rigatoni bolognese was rigatoni with a tomato cream sauce. I did not find but a few pieces of ground pork in the sauce. Should have been listed as a vegetarian dish. very disappointing.
