Still serving great deep dish pizza

Go for the pizza, not the other menu items. Expect a thick sweet dough with plentiful toppings. Absolutely delicious if your taste in pizza allows for this derivation. For 35 years their deep dish slice has held a special place for me. It's a college bar so expect noise, crowds and slow service.

We made a reservation the night before for 47 people, 20 girls under 15, our hockey team and parents. They seated us all together, served water and had our pizzas ready and served within 20 minutes. We had preordered a variety for the adults and cheese & pepperonie for the girls. Just like a production line. Perfect service. We went... More

I recently went to the Nines with my family for a reunion. Although we were a larger party, we were thankful that they sat us within 5 minutes. Unfortunately, that was the only time we received quick service. We ordered immediately once we were seated. However, it took an hour for us to get just our appetizers. Not only that,... More

Matt is by far one of the best servers that I have ever encountered......friendly, personable, and always had a smile on his face. He really seemed to love his job. Our table got 3 pizzas but I can't review the pizza as I didn't eat......only had beer. The Nine's is very lucky to have Matt representing their restaurant/bar. I wish... More

Best pizza place in town, by far! Delicious deep dish pizza. Service is good but sometimes a little slow. I recommend ordering over the phone 15-20 minutes before showing up. Totally worth the wait, though!

I have been going to the Nines for almost 30 years. It started off as kind of a Granola place for locals and some Cornell Students. I have always loved it. When it is good there is nothing better and when it isn't, it is still pretty good. If you are looking for fancy and expensive, look elsewhere, if you... More

Recently I went to the nines restaurant with a few friends to grab some pizza. We had a party of four people with us and when we walked in there was one table in the entire restaurant, and we waited about ten minutes to be seated. The waitress that we had was very unsociable and borderline rude. She seemed like... More

More or a bar than a restaurant. The wings and deep dish pizza were very good. Wait staff were inattentive and more concerned with their phones and own conversations.
