Quirky place in downtown

The desk clerk at our hotel gave us the tip about this place and we found it be a bit quirky. You sit in easy chairs and the like. The place is old has some real character. The staff was very nice and helpful. The selections were good and varied. It was easy to find and you can park behind... read more

We both had the corned beef hash stack. It was really delicious and more than I could eat. It was a interesting riff on corned beef hash. The put shredded corned beef, sautéed peppers, onions and gravy over a crispy potato pancake. The decor is quirky, kind of shabby chic/ hippy and they play good music. Highly recommend the place.

Great place with solid service and quirky vibe but the betwixt menu is sort of a lost and not up to par with the service or the overall feel of the place. The drinks are well crafted and the beer selection is respectable but in between lunch and dinner they over a bizarre collection that seems more assembled than prepared... More

My partner and I along with our great friends had dinner at Blue Grass last night, maybe our 7th or 8th visit in the last year. As usual we started with drinks which are consistently hand crafted and creative! I appreciate a well developed cocktail as much as I appreciate a well crafted meal, and I frequently give the bar...

I ate at the Bluegrass Kitchen last week. I sat at the bar and everyone was very friendly and it had a nice atmosphere. The food was just okay, nothing special. The band was quite enjoyable though.

The live music was pleasant and not overwhelmingly loud. The bar atmosphere was nice. On the other side of the restaurant it was very busy but still a great atmosphere. I had the meatloaf which was flavorful but a bit dry. Green beans and mashed potatoes were good as well. My girlfriend had the porkchop which was very flavorful and... More

Very good. Love that they allow the original building to be seen, rather than covering it up. The atmosphere is relaxing. The food is delicious.

The chef has the right idea. I ordered an ahi tuna poke with slaw and tortilla crunch. It was fresh, tangy and just the right size for my later that 7 pm dinner. My husband had another fish entree, bigger portions with sides and potato and loved it. We shared a mocha latte piece of cake for dessert and that... More

Excellent locally sourced food in the heart of Charleston. Don't miss the trout and grits entree and the beer fondue appetizer. The cocktail of the day, today a gimlet, wasn't bad either!

I had a very recent experience like "turneraw."Over the last few years, I have eaten at the Bluegrass a half dozen or so times. A mix of lunch and dinner. I enjoy the atmosphere and decor. The food and service were good. However, last visit was poor. I apparently had the same absent minded hipster waiter that turneraw had. I... More
