1 star because they are closed! We have been here previously.Traveled through the area about a year ago, stopped and the food was delicious. We decide to stop again this trip but upon arriving at the restaurant on July 3rd we found a Remax For Sale sign in the window and a big "Closed" sign. Such a shame they had... More

This was our second visit, the food, wine and atmosphere are brilliant so sad to learn that the owners had decided to sell and that we would not be able to return.

On a road trip from Kansas to Florida, we were passing through and Trip Advisor recommended this one. Very good. Freshly made bread served at the table. My wife had the Steak Stroganoff, which she loved and I had one of the best pizzas that I have tasted in ages. Big, deep with a lot of toppings and chunks rather... More

Being on a tight budget, it is not often that my wife and I can claim to have eaten at the best restaurant in town. Last night we did. Admittedly, the culinary competition in Mount Vernon, Illinois, is not all that keen. One other restaurant tempted us and is perhaps more gourmet but the prices were at bit much for... More

This is the one of the two fine dining restaurants in Mount Vernon. The food is definitely great. I am vegetarian so I either just a sandwich and soup for lunch special or a pizza or calzone for dinner. But I thoroughly enjoy my meal here. The ambiance is great as well and the service is excellent. I would definitely... More

My wife and I stopped in to the 9th Street Grill as we made our way from St. Louis to Louisville, KY. We had high hopes based on great reviews we had read, and we can both say with 100 percent confidence that this restaurant lives up to the hype. The facility is quaint and relaxing, and the food is... More

I've had lunch and dinner at 9th st. many times and never been disappointed. Their food is prepared on sight, including their delicious home-made bread sticks. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a really good meal. It's not fast food, so allow for adequate time.

Hands down the best restaurant in town. It's a couple of miles east of interstate 57 away from the hotels, but worth the trip. Try the bison burger for lunch and you can never go wrong with the pasta dish called the gambit either. Great selection and variety on the menu and plenty of wine and beer, too. The management...
