I live in Bloomington, and I won't eat here ever again. On two different occasions my chicken was very undercooked (raw). They took the food, heated it some more and brought it back. No apologies. Full price. Never again.

Fantastic. My wife had the Roasted Tomato Soup and loved it. I had the Fried Green Tomato BLT. I had them add their homemade pimento cheese. Great sandwich.

I used to LOVE the food here. The pimento burger was the best burger I've ever had in my life. No joke. Fried grit cake was great too. Their southern menu was just so unique and their food was fantastic. However they changed ownership a few months ago. A young woman whose family owns a (Chinese) restaurant in China now... More

Food was very good. I had a breaded tenderloin sandwich. My companion has a bacon burger, with mushrooms. The portions are large and tasty. Lunch with tip was $40.00, no alcohol was involved, which is way I thought it was pricey. There is no ceiling so noise level when busy it a loud setting. I think this is a good... More

The menu has a very southern feel with fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, lots of burger and sandwich options and yummy house made chips and ranch dressing. Seriously the best ranch dressing I've had! A little pricey, but so worth it. We were not disappointed with anything we ordered!

This was at one time one of our favorites... The last few times we visited we left disappointed. Tonight I received a wilted salad with lots of wilted greens, dry tasteless chicken, and a whole lot of nothing else! Disappointed, not sure we will return. New owners running it into the ground. Sad... :-(

Whoever the manager was last night, I hope they are not still working there. There was a big problem, but none of the guests were told the truth. The poor waitress had to deal with the entire situation and could only offer "the kitchen is backed up". We waited 2 hours for a tiny portion of mac and cheese, a... More

I was not going to return here but my friend wanted to meet at Sweet Grass last week for lunch. I thought, well I will give it one more try to see if any of the feedback has made a difference in food quality and service. I rated this experience a little better than previous reviews so there has been... More

People rave about this place and we were not impressed. The food is unremarkable, the noise level is high, the service good but we will not rush back.
