We had a double date here and couldn't have asked for a better experience. We shared 7 of the small plates & starters. Everything was fantastic, especially the 1/2 & 1/2 charcuterie board and the tamale. We shared 2 entrees and a few desserts. The duck entree and the campfire dessert shouldn't be missed. Service was outstanding. This is our favorite restaurant on the Northshore. We'll be back.

BEST meal on the north shore. They hit it out the park. The room was very loud, but with food like that, who cares? Haha.

This was most of my groups first visit to Oxlot 9 and it did not disappoint! We all ordered an appetizer and small plate. We were so full at the end of our meal. The crab cake was FULL of crab and top notch. We also enjoyed the tamale & scallops. The Fall Spritz cocktail was so refreshing. I will be back & will recommend Oxlot to all my family & friends.

Great food. Excellent service. Beautiful hotel building.
I had the blackened tuna and it was melt in your mouth.
The charcuterie board was mouthwatering.

The Good: Brussel sprouts were wonderful! Very good service and a delicious wine recommendation. The Bad: Five different small plates were ordered... the 2 salads were good, Lobster Ravioli was extremely salty, Carbonara was salty and a little pasty, Tuna was tasteless.
We won’t return for dinner, but their brunch is delicious.

Our server - I think his name was Michael - was excellent. Also, the other servers quickly filled up my water glass, which I appreciate as I am a big water-drinker! Our empty plates were quickly removed, another PLUS! Michael's answers on questions we had about food choices was very helpful, and we agreed with him on those choices! It was a lovely evening, all in all.

Date night for my wife and me. Gave Oxlot 9 a try and we were not disappointed. Our server, Michael was great and did not rush us through dinner. Seared amberjack for me and pecan crusted flounder for my wife. Both meals were really good. The chocolate dome dessert was a great finish!

The food was fabulous. However, we went for lunch, and the food took so long to get to us, we had to take it to go. Too slow if you're on your work lunch. But, service overall, food, and ambiance was awesome. I'll go back when I have more time.

Our dining experience was top-notch, from the sweet hostess who handled a special request when we arrived to the special touch from our server Stephanie of ensuring that we had wine glasses for the extra bottle that we purchased to take back to our room and everything in-between. The food was magnificent and the service was attentive, without being bothersome, and our server was knowledgeable, answering all of our questions and helping us with a few suggestions that were spot-on. The restaurant had a steady flow of business, but all of our needs felt like a priority and we appreciate that. Thank you for a wonderful anniversary experience. We will definitely be back.

1st time here with family...food was exceptional for this special occasion, service was done well. A few family members were a little uneasy to go, and when they saw no masks being used by chefs and waitstaff, they were a bit uncomfortable. All in all, a very nice experience, and creative tasty menu. Will certainly return!

Great place for a Thursday night date.

Couldn't get over the $5 old-fashion. My date ordered a blueberry and vodka concoction that comes out in a mason jar.

I ordered half dozen grilled oysters for an app and the mussels for man course. My wife had the brussels as an app and the tuna tartare.

Great everything.

The reservation was at 12:30 pm. We were shuttled to a bar to wait. We were not seated until about 1:10. Then only after I went back to the waiter to ask if they had forgotten about my party of 2. The wait of 40 minutes to be deated despite having a confirmed reservation is unacceptable.

The noise level was so high I could not hear my companion. The music which is mediocre just makes it even louder
My tacos were okay . They did come as requested without bronzing spice but the fish was overcooked . Two weeks ago they were great.
Corey ‘s service was first rate as usual

Great restaurant. Varied menu with many appetizer and small plate choices. Good drinks. We had the caipirinha cocktail , and lettuce wrapped pork belly to start from the happy hour menu. We dined on stuffed quail, royal red shrimp and a pasta dish which were small plates but were good sized portions. The quail was outstanding. Prices are very reasonable. We will come back on our next trip here.

We visited for the first time last week and the food and service were great. Only issue was loud group next to us. Maybe rearrange seating to give more space to individual tables or add some soundproofing. We will be back.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday again this year at OxLot 9. The food was great and the service was really good. We were a party of 8 and I honestly can’t report a single thing that I think could have been better that evening. I recommend this restaurant.
