    The menu offers a great variety of options, from burgers and sandwiches to salads and a weekly special. The flavors are bold and the presentation is beautiful. The bar also impresses with a wide selection of beers, bourbons, tequilas and cocktails. The ambiance at FourNine is energetic and inviting, with a mix of industrial and modern design elements. The service is top-notch, with friendly and attentive staff members who are eager to make sure every guest has a fantastic dining experience. The prices are reasonable for the quality and quality of food and service, making it a great value. Overall, FourNine is a must-visit for anyone in the area looking for a delicious meal in a trendy and welcoming atmosphere. I highly recommend it and can't wait to go back!

    First time at the new FourNine, fantastic new building, great upgrade. Food was awesome and service was exceptional. Everyone was extremely nice and friendly and you could tell they actually wanted to be there, not like some other places where they are just going thru the motions. Will definitely be making regular visits back. The FourNine will be great for Mt. Zion, IL

    We were disappointed in our food. I ordered the California burger. The temperature of the burger was not hot, it was room temperature. The menu indicates this burger costs $11. We were charged $12. My wife ordered Asian citrus salad. It was missing the edamame and onions. I don't think the salad dressing it was served with was asian sesame vinagrette. It seemed more like balsalmic vinagrette.

    Half of our parties good came out about ten mins before the rest which made things awkward. Should have brought it all out at the same time. My chicken was a little overcooked and the chips were soggy.

    I'm looking forward to a larger menu that includes good steaks, fish, seafood. We have to drive over an hour to get a good fine dining experience. I'm hoping this is the way you are leaning, as there's not much here in Decatur anymore accept fast food, Mexican etc.

    Service was great, food was amazing, lots of seating! However, it was full of people and it was rather noisy and the chairs scraping on the floor echoed. This is not going to stop me from going again, though! I even booked another reservation while I was there!
