We always stop here when we travel through Charleston

We discovered bluegrass kitchen a few years ago on the trip between our home in Pennsylvania and our sons home in Kentucky. We always try to time our trip so that either lunch or dinner can be at the bluegrass kitchen on the way. Great food locally sourced lots of vegetables and interesting dishes

The menu is limited, prices inflated, and the food is of good quality, but laking flare and flavor. Service is appropriate, but a bit stand-offish.

Food does not suffice for the price not in tasty nor food portion sizes. Another shabby rendition of an upscale restaurant in Charleston that by far misses the mark. Go to Aldelphia or Corridor G if u can better restaurants out there to choose from...don't waste time in Charleston an additional half a cent city tax on all purchases made... More

We found this gem on a short stop in Charleston. We were wow'ed with an outstanding bottle of wine, delicious short ribs and homemade meatloaf. Our server was adorable, and provided us with local city information as well as food recommendations. The chocolate cake polished the night off perfectly. We left with to go containers, and ate for two more... More

Lovingly prepared and locally sourced food. From old family recipes to eclectic culinary masterpieces, this is just some of the classiest and tastiest food around. Something for everyone, from meatball hoagie offerings to vegetarian, mac and cheese for the kids, good beers or wine for dad and mom. Conveniently close to I-64, the airport and the state capitol. Parking can... More

I ate here with a group of about a dozen. The waitress was great. They have a great beer selection and good menu. The prices are very reasonable. I had a homemade veggie burger which was quite good. There was a fantastic Bluegrass band as well.

For brunch we had the potato cakes with the side of yogurt and granola and the corned beef hash served over a potato cake with gravy. We both love potato pancakes, but these were potato balls, heavily fried and a bit greasy. Not all that great. The yogurt was very good and the corned beef hash was good, but middlin'... More

When my wife and I lived in Charleston we often enjoyed dinner at the Bluegrass Kitchen. After moving away and not eating there for a while, we visited again for dinner this weekend. On the positive side, the atmosphere is still very homey and welcoming. The staff remain outstanding, and it was nice to say hello to old friends. On... More
