We loved this place on Montford Avenue, not far from the Visitor's Center. It's small and gets very crowded so we arrived at 1:26 after most of the lunch crowd left. My lunch was $3.95. Everything from vegetarian to meat dishes. Food is fresh and made from scratch. Parking on the street. We walked to this place from our bed... More

This place is a hidden little gem tucked away in a nice little area. We arrived at Nine Mile in the middle of a snowstorm that was shutting down the city. The sign had been turned to "CLOSED" but we walked in anyway. They told us to come in, no worries. We proceeded to have one of the best meals... More

Even with the increase in prices that Nine Mile has instituted this place is the deal of the century. Located in a small old brick structure in the middle of Montford, a turn of the century residential neighborhood that has undergone significant gentrification of late, Nine Mile is only slightly out of downtown and has huge portions at roughly half...

Enjoyed our meal of fresh fish and wonderful flavors. I like that we were given choices for our sides. I would return to the restaurant.

One of the complaints that I have seen on tripadvisor about the Nine Mile is that it takes a long time to get food. Well, all I can say is it takes time to prepare great food, so sit tight and have another beer. The wait will be worth it. This little place is busy all the time and the... More

Yes, Nine Mile has a fun, artsy vibe and we appreciated it. However, more dining space would be appreciated, too. Not sure if they can expand without throwing their artsy vibe out of balance. Our B&B host suggested we get to Nine Mile before the dinner crowd and before 8:00 pm the Wednesday we were there. We barely made it.... More

Went with very high hopes but felt terribly let down.Was reasonably crowded but was kept waiting though a couple of tables outside were empty and the usher had to be reminded about them. After placing the order,the mahi fish dish came 45 minutes later.Salads came earlier but had to be reminded to provide forks. The food served was good but... More

Very noisy. Kid next to us needed a cattle prod. But food was outstanding. Appetizer of chips plus 3 dips- smoked queso, roasted tomato-mango, and green curry hummus just outstanding. My Mahi dish was good, but my wife's jerk chicken with roasted veggies on spinach pasta with a garlicky Alfredo was to die for.

Loved the Jamaican-American eatery. An absolute must when visiting Asheville, unless you like well done steaks- then please don't waste our time b/c Nine mile is for cool people who get good food. The pineapple salsa, smoked Gouda queso & bb hummus was AmAZIng!! Great fresh salads!
