Title, title; must find a title for my identity. Where did I put that?

Sweetgrass is a pleasant restaurant getting mixed reviews. I think you will be served a good meal at a reasonably moderate price. If this is all you want to know, stop reading.

I was in town working for 3 weeks at the local hospital for a special project. I checked out the local restaurant scene by reviewing local menus online. My mouth began watering when I came across the Pimento burger. I decided to order carryout to take back to my hotel, since I was alone. On the menu, the Pimento burger... More

The food here is really great. Loved the ambiance n the food. Service is real nice. Their portions are pretty big and we had to ask for boxes to take the leftovers home. They also have some nice desserts. Their chips are very different from other places n very tasty......We had the pork and the shrimp on our bread and... More

This reaffirms why I always ask the locals where they go for dinner. When the person I asked could name almost half the menu off the top of their head, I knew he had been there many times. This was a great place. I like the casual decor and relaxed feeling. The food was fantastic. I started with the house... More

Been here twice now and the food has been great both times! Got the salmon with bbq sauce the first time and the steak salad the second time; both were equally delicious! Cornbread and homemade chips are yummy too! Love the lights around the restaurant.... make the atmosphere a little bit nicer as it was more of a casual place... More

We've dined at SG several times, usually at lunch. It's a good place to get a good, quick lunch. Great service and the food it really good. I recommend the pimento burger or the fried green tomato sandwich. Their hand made potato chips are great. And if you want less sodium, they will serve them unsalted (unless they're REALLY busy)....

Though it is off the map as far as IU is concerned, Sweet Grass should be on your map of places to eat in Bloomington. You can avoid the traffic near campus and while it might be a challenge to find parking it is worth it. Sweet Grass is a cut above the rest. If your thinking about eating at... More

This restaurant has been a go to for our girls outings in Bloomington. The food has always been delicious but a bit messy. The wait staff has always been attentive and friendly but on multiple occasions the hostess has been cold and unwelcoming. We will continue to return to this little Bloomington treasure.

This place is one of the frequently forgotten options for good food in Bloomington. Fried green tomatoes and the po' boy sandwich are among my favorites! I know several people who frequently bring out of town guests here for a great meal. One of the really nice parts of Sweetgrass is its lounge, but they close too early and they... More

Gee. Where was this place when I lived in Bloomington? I had an opportunity to eat Sunday Breakfast here during I recent trip back to Bloomington. And it was great!
