Good dinner stop

We had dinner here with friends. The service was fine and the portions plentiful. Two in the group had the meatloaf and each took half of it home. The burger was good as were the fish and chips. Beer and wine selections were good too. We would definitely return.

This is not a chain restaurant so if you are expecting the service you get at Applebee's where everything comes prepackaged this is not the restaurant for you. The service was great and the waitstaff took time with their customers finding out where they were from and what to recommend on the menu. We had the cut fries, trout dinner... More

Food is mediocre, service is the WORST EVER! Rudest staff we have ever experienced, every single time. Go somewhere else, it's not worth it.

We stopped because we read the reviews and it seemed like it was something that sounded unique for our visit to Charleston. We always try to check out the unique local restaurants in our visits - in the US or abroad. Well: we were highly disappointed. we wanted the trout and grits and they were out, it was only 6...

Really enjoyed this restaurant with my husband and two small kids. Great atmosphere - artwork for sale on every wall, exposed brick, etc. No printed kids menu, but plenty to choose from. They split the meatloaf and loved it (will order the gravy in the side next time, though). I had the trout and grits with a side of kale.... More

A great, local gem in Charleston with locally-procured food and healthy options that taste terrific. Very original menu. Trout was great and grits were very original. The kale was very tasty in a vinegar base. People told me that the service was spotty, but ours was good. Don't be fooled by the decor- this place is good. And we had... More

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
