Great Locally-Sourced Cafe

Went for lunch and was very pleasantly surprised! I had the grilled pimento cheese, white cheddar grilled cheese with tomato and jalapenos---it was great. Wide array of sandwiches for lunch, will be back...

This spot has an eclectic menu of down home favorites which are sure to please the hungry diner. The staff was friendly and service was fairly quick on this rainy evening. We ordered the 1/2 lb burger, meatloaf, chicken, and a few salads for the table and all were yummy. The thin cut fries were also memorable and reminded me... More

I have never had a good experience here. From rude servers to always being out of something! Wonderful concept but poorly ran. One time we walked in and stood waiting for someone to seat us. Owner just sat there taking on their phone. We were finally seated but it put a bad light on the meal and then they were... More

Well what a disappointment. My bf& I decided to finally try Bluegrass Kitchen for a late lunch. We walked in, unsure if we were to seat ourselves we walked aimlessly past bar area (no staff in sight) then noticed a sign "please wait to be seated" so we stopped there & waited. A waiter walked by w/food & said rudely... More

A few blocks from the State Capitol had a fantastic lunch menu with very creative items. Friendly staff and the food was great. Parking for free in the rear. Worth going a little out of the way to find it and would go back again in the flash.

My husband and I found ourselves in Charleston during the last night of a quick road trip. Based on reviews from a restaurant review app, we chose to have dinner at Bluegrass Kitchen. The atmosphere was casual and comfortable, and there was a pleasant jazz group playing. Our waiter was great, the perfect combination of friendly and professional. He definitely... More

We read about it on the Appalachian Cuisine Tour, so we stopped for a late lunch. We considered so many of the great items, but my husband went for the Perfect Chicken sandwich, which he felt was well named. I couldn't resist the meat loaf and mashed potatoes sandwich. It's hard to tackle as a sandwich, so I ate quite... More

Our first visit here while on business in Charleston. The seating wasn't very comfortable and kinda confusing. We were seated on the end of a couch with the other end being used for another table. Unswept area around our table with vinyl table cloths that had dried food spills on the overhangs. The server appeared to be upbeat and friendly.... More

Stopped at Bluegrass Kitchen on our last road trip. Neighborhood favorite feel. Delicious sandwiches. Can't go wrong with the Grilled Pimento Cheese or Rueben. The brisket on the Rueben was the one of the best we have tasted. To experience the true essence of this place...eat at the bar.
