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! Love the location on Bloomington's south side. Such a pleasant area to sit outside and dine. I had an egg benedict type dish (eggs on top of friend green tomatoes... More

Have eaten here several times, good food, good price. However, last time wife and I got sick, really sick. My wife's a microbiologist and knew what the problem was right off the bat. We are not going back!!

Bloomington has a disproportionately large number of incredible, independent restaurants to choose from. I'm not sure this is one of them. I've been three times for lunch and every time I've been underwhelmed. Each time I think, "Maybe it will be better today." Having just tried visit #3 over the weekend, I felt compelled to write a review. Every time... More

Had a wonderful lunch with my niece at the Sweet Grass. The atmosphere and menu were very nice... laid back, very light and welcoming. The service was excellent. Our waitress was personable and genuine. The food was very, very good. Highly recommend.

We went here graduation weekend. The place was completely crowded and that's well deserved. The menu has many options that are unique, the food was fabulous, and the prices were high but it felt worth it. Service was great, and when they messed up on my side dish there was no haggling. They just fixed the mistake and let me... More

Love Sweetgrass - we eat there regularly. My only complaint is they often have 2 creamy soups. They always have creamy tomato (great soup but not WW friendly) and I have an audible grrr when the 2nd soup is another creamy one. Just hoping for options!! But if you are on a splurge day.. friend green tomatoes, crab cakes... OMG... More

This restaurant is off the beaten path, but I was surprised at how good a crowd there was on a Saturday-- and I was told that it was actually quite light compared to usual. Good ambiance, friendly service, delicious and well-presented food-- I was impressed. Sweet Grass has a nice selection of beer and wine and an emphasis on Southern... More

My husband and I have visited Sweet Grass on a number of occasions and all have been very enjoyable. Our service has always been good and the food very tasty. Plus, my husband loves their Manhattans. He is a big bourbon fan, so he takes his Manhattan seriously, and this is one of his favorites. I have enjoyed everything we... More

Enjoyed lunch with the wife there last Friday. Food was good as expected based on other reviews. Nice lunch crowd and wife preferred this choice over downtown as it was raining. Yes, will definitely go back.

Sweet Grass is not necessarily the easiest place to find. It is not with all the downtown restaurants and you definitely need drive there. But don't fret...it is only a few minutes from downtown and worth the trip. Open and airy inside, it could equally be seen as casual dining or a place to go for a special occasion. It... More
