We come here every month or so for the great food & service. Owner Joan Marie works with her family to make this an always enjoyable experience. The menu remains the same because it is so good...always expect a short wait

I ordered the corn beef hash and it was 90% potatoes. Very bland flavor. Do not waist your time or money.More

That is very odd. I am the owner, cook server depending on the day. We measure out the meat for every serving.... Maybe we gave you too many potatoes. Please, for the sake of all restaurants when you are not happy with their food, and...More

Chattanooga now has a ton of these up and coming trendy eateries especially downtown. Bluegrass Grill sits atop the heap. Like most great small restaurants, you might have to wait. Do it. We had the sausage quiche and the breakfast burrito and both were delicious....More

Food is excellent. Breakfast & lunch served all day. Great service. Family owned and run. I've only been here 2 times and ate different breakfast items both times. You get plenty of food for the money and peach tea is great.

Great home cooked to order breakfast. They have their standard menu, but they will change to order. You may have a wait if you go at busy times, but it's worth it.

We do not have an outside dining area. The Health Dept. requires that outside dining be fenced. We have a bench and a small table outside for folks waiting and the lone smoker.

No, we do not have the capacity to seat a table of 15 diners. Forgive us for not responding sooner, I never noticed the question tab on Trip Advisor. It would be difficult on some days to get 2 tables together. Usually... More
