My wife and I are both Australian and travelled around the USA for 6 weeks. Sweetgrass restaurant is by far our most memorable dining experience in America. The shrimp and grits are a must try as is the deep dish apple pie. The Food and service here is fantastic, we would go back to America again just to visit this... More

The food was delicious if not exceptional. The waitress was very attentive. The desserts were very delicious! Cute, eclectic neighborhood. Parking can be difficult.

I've eaten at Sweet Grass several times, and every time I've been very happy. They have some drinks that are unusual and well crafted. The brunch menu has a good selection; the french toast and the crab cakes were great each time.

We were visiting with our daughter in Memphis recently and had dinner at Sweet Grass in the Cooper Young Area of Memphis. Cooper Young is a very eclectic area with lots of art and good restaurants in Midtown Memphis. We began our meal with a watermelon salad with prosciutto and goat cheese and other ingredients that were very tasty, especially... More

My wife and I and 2 friends enjoyed our Sunday brunch. All four of us had different plates and we all enjoyed. And the special adult beverages were tasty. Might have been the best grits ever. We had no room for dessert which was too bad because they looked great. We’ll be back.

My husband and I are not the type of people who complain or write negative reviews. However, after two separate yet similarly disappointing experiences with the service at Sweetgrass, we felt the need to comment. There is one criticism, we have about the food, which we will add at the end, but our main issue was with the service. On... More

We dined at Sweet Grass on a Thursday night, and had an overall superb dining experience. Check out their seasonal cocktail offerings - we had a concoction made with intestinal gin, ginger, cucumber, and St. Germain that was excellent. Beef carpaccio, arugula salad, and a shrimp & grits with scallops, house made sausage and country ham entree - all were... More

You pay for the 'hip' location and atmosphere, but I'd rather pay for good food and service 1. slow service. delivery of drinks and taking of orders took ages (It wasn't busy - we were one of three occupied tables.) 2. small portions. my crab cakes benedict consisted of one small (~ 1.5" diameter) crab cake, two similarly-sized fried green...

We met friends here for a casual dinner on a Sunday night. The menu is not large, but there is good variety and some excellent flavor. A couple of us tried the duck, and rated it excellent. I tried the grilled vegetables and they were perfect - set off by a salty cheese ball made with feta. Two of our... More

My wife and I joined another couple at Sweet Grass recently before the symphony. We all agreed that our meal was exceptional. The highlight of the evening for me was the low country shrimp and grits. I have had shrimp and grits at a number of good restaurants, but I must say that this version of it was the very... More
