Exceeded expectations

We ate here on a whim and were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The restaurant is an awkward space, and the theme is incoherent. However the important factors such as the food and service were both good. The cojita cheese fries were incredible! We got a chicken sandwhich, a salad, and a... read 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

I've been to Sweet Grass a number of times, and have been very pleased every single time. The service is very good, and the menu is diverse. Everything I've tried has been absolutely delicious!

Stopped on the way home to grab a bite. Not looking for a huge meal, just a tasty treat. My wife and I split the burger and fries. It was called the Southern Belle Burger. OMG, it was YUMM-EE!! A nice combination of spices on a big juicy burger, with the habanero havarti cheese, marinated tomatoes, banana peppers, and lettuce.... More

We neglected to make reservations during a busy parents weekend at IU and knew it would be difficult to get seated anywhere in downtown Bloomington. Our hotel recommended Sweet Grass which is about 10 minutes from campus. We still had to wait for a table but not too long. The atmosphere is very nice although we did find it a... More

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. Sweetgrass has come a long way since I went there several times years ago. But they may be having an identity crisis. They have done a great deal... More

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

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
