This food was fabulous! It was fresh and the beef was so good!! The waiter was kind and service was relaxed and welcoming. If you're in a hurry don't stop but it's great for a relaxing quiet meal.

We have enjoyed lunch at 247 on more than one occasion. The food is exceptional and the service was awesome. A small intimate restaurant with an eclectic menu. Worth a try.

They don't post their menu because it's almost a farm to table restaurant. The menu changes so often based on what they can get fresh...when we were there I had the best caprese with pickled ginger and arugula. It was really... More
