Brunch, lunch, or dinner overlooking Atlanta at 9 Mile Station.

9 Mile Station sits atop Old Fourth Ward’s Ponce City Market, the quintessential spot for a rooftop dinner or date. 9 Mile Station is owned and operated by serial restauranteers, Kelvin & Mandy Slater, who have over 50 collective years in the restaurant business.

We had an exclusive interview with Atlanta local and foodie, Bethany Moore. You can find more from Bethany Moore on Instagram at @moorefoodadventures! She visited 9 Mile Station with her husband in December 2020.

Delicious food and excellent customer service with a breathtaking view.

The menu at 9 Mile Station serves up American favorites including charcuterie boards, signature salads, cheeseburgers, and other classics. Moore told us her favorite part about 9 Mile Station was that it was “intimate and fun”.

The combination of the breathtaking view of Atlanta, along with the casual, sharable portions, and great cocktail menu, make 9 Mile Station a great restaurant in Old Fourth Ward. “The staff also does an excellent job to make any adjustments to your meal, if need be,” Moore added.

“When my husband and I visited 9 Mile Station, we started off with the mussels,” Moore told us “When I order mussels, I like to see what makes them so special,” Moore told us that the mussels at 9 Mile Station were absolutely perfect. “They were not too salty, not over-cooked, and just the right amount of sauce.”


When asked what she would recommend to somebody visiting 9 Mile Station for the first time, she quickly answered, “I definitely recommend the mussels and eggplant involtini. I had the eggplant involtini and my husband had the Cobb salad with brussel sprouts as a side dish.”

Moore said that she and her husband truly enjoyed the food and ambiance at 9 Mile Station - perfect for an evening date for a night out. “Let’s just say the eggplants were so good I almost ordered a second dish. Definitely, a must-try!” Moore said with a laugh.

9 Mile Station has the perfect atmosphere on the Roof at Ponce.

“What I love the most about 9 Mile Station is the atmosphere,” Moore said, “The great food is a plus but every time I would go to the Ponce City Market Roof, I saw [9 Mile Station] and would say to myself ‘I need to try that place’. I often went onto their website to check out their menu items.”

Moore has only had the opportunity to visit 9 Mile Station once but she hopes to return again soon. The restaurant has a great indoor-outdoor space with an unmatched view of Midtown, Buckhead, and Downtown Atlanta.

Moore confirmed, “This is a restaurant experience you won’t want to miss!”
