Nice change of pace, a bit noisy

Had a great meal there on wednesday (half price wine night). Excellent salmon, very good pork tenderloin, though slightly overcooked. Best thing about this place are the sides -- grits cake, collards, cole slaw, cornbread, and all things Carolina. The menu is unique around here, bringing the... read more

One of my favorite places to eat in Bloomington. All dishes are well portioned and flavorful. The menu touts the flavors of North Carolina fare, and has many different options which will satisfy all types of appetites. Come hungry because they serve large portions at reasonable prices.

I have been here many times. The staff are friendly and helpful. Food comes very quickly unless the place is packed. Best shrimp po boy.

I visited this restaurant for lunch with friends. It had an up class southern barbeque feel. I had a fried green tomato BLT. Very good. I would definitely consider a return next time I was in the Bloomington area.

I like the food but b/c it's usually freezing in there and the prices are high, I don't go too often. Anyway, we asked to be seated outside, but noticed they weren't any umbrellas anymore. She didn't seem to want to seat us out there and when I asked if there was any shade at all, she said only for... More

Surprised and delighted. The food was delicious, serving sizes ample, and the wait staff attentive. Plenty of wine and craft beer to choose from. Eat outside or in.

I really did not enjoy my experience at Sweet Grass. This is NOT what southern food should taste like coming from someone who lives in Atlanta. First of all, it isn't even fresh! It's greasy and not seasoned well and everything does not have to be fried to be qualified as "southern food". The vegetables are terrible and there really... More

I'd been told this was a nice place to eat, so I went here with a friend recently. It was fine, but nothing to rave about. We went on a cloudy day and the dining area seemed a bit dark, but luckily we were seated near a window. It wasn't busy when we were there, we saw two - maybe... More

I went to lunch with my sister in law- she drove down from Indianapolis for the day. I took her to Sweet Grass on the advice of my daughter- a Bloomington resident...The restaurant was not crowded- maybe half the tables were filled on a Tuesday @ 12 noon. We had chicken Tortilla soup- new England clam chowder and we shared/split... More

My husband & I were in Brown County for a "mom & dad get away" and decided to go into Bloomington for a nice dinner. I have to be honest, I picked this place because they had risotto on the online menu but when we got there, the waitress informed us they no longer served it because it slowed their... More
