Great Smoked Pork Chop

We have brought many friends here from out of town, especially when we know downtown restaurants will be busy. It is a very small quirky place with limited parking though. The food we've tried has always been good. We've had the smoked pork chop which is excellent. Also the loaded baked potato and... read more

We visit 9 South once every 2-3 months, and have always enjoyed its menu and generally good food. Our visit this past Saturday was not good. The restaurant was understaffed, and our service was slow. We asked for our waiter's whereabouts and received a curt "he's busy bartending" reply - not quite rude, but certainly no apologies. Not all the... More

Probably one of the best places to eat. I have never had a bad meal there. Just allow a bit of time. Everything is made to order, so plan on a bit of a wait for your food. Small, cozy restaurant with limited parking, so avoiding prime meal times is a good idea.

I had heard nothing but rave reviews about 9 South Chargrill and finally made it there for lunch today. It was amazing! Excellent service and the best Cajun Fettucine Alfredo I've had outside of New Orleans in ages! My understanding from friends is that everything on their menu is this good so I will definitely be back and am looking... More

We met some customers at this restaurant for dinner as they wanted us to experience this locally owned establishment. The burgers are 100% Angus beef and are huge. One of the specialities of this restaurant is the baked potato covered with their special sauce and steak. Awesome!! Service was excellent as well.

You could not buy my dinner for me to eat at 9 South Chargrill. We have pulled our business and informed our friends too. We waited nearly 30 minutes for drinks (other tables arriving after us, had been served drinks, ordered food and were being served their dinner) ......and when they arrived the waiter said for us "to get over...

Let's be clear, here. There is much good to say about an eatery - and that is what the Chargrill is - that aspires to solid competence, eschewing visions of culinary grandeur. Think of your favorite places, the old reliables, the solid citizens, where the bar is good but not great, the food plain but good, the people friendly, the... More

Food and service were fine. Prices are reasonable and portions are plentiful. Our server was very cordial. They have a few local beers on tap, which is great. The atmosphere is pretty plain. Parking can be difficult in the smallish lot. I would recommend 9 South to anyone wanting a non-fast food decent lunch or dinner for a reasonable price.... More

Great food and service. We had hamburgers, steak, salad and the waffle fries loaded for an appetizer. Everything was excellent.

Every time we have eaten here, the food and service has been excellent. They have a wonderful menu, including several vegetarian options. The service is always friendly. Can't wait to go back.
