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...

We stopped here for a weekday lunch. I had the Monte Carlo Chicken Sandwich and the potato soup. The sandwich was huge! The bread was made on site and delicious. Service was great as well. I am not in Mt. Vernon often, but would certainly return when in town!

We stopped at the 9th St. Grill because of the listing in the AAA book and boy we were sure glad we did., I had the Blackened Salmon and my wife had the Tilapia and they were both top rate. The black beans that came with the salmon were amazing. They wouldn't give me the recipe either! I will definitely... More

Most of their business is pass through, but who cares, just stop. Best bison burger, portobello and blue cheese burger, and oh, do yourself a favor, get the hummus plate. Best. Evah.
