We found this place today because we are working in the area and it was so good! It's real small, only about 10 tables maybe but the service was fast so I'm sure they get through people quickly. Seat yourself, large variety of breakfast items and some stuff that is pretty unique. It was a fun atmosphere. We will define... More

Tons of selection, food was good, realizing its 2016 and the restaurant you're eating in only accepts cash...terrible. In their defense there was a tiny sign on the door but we didn't even notice it when we went in. As we were eating we kept seeing all the diners leave and then come back...they were making the block and a... More

I've been to the Bluegrass Grill several times, and have learned by now that you should arrive very early (like 30+ minutes before it opens) on weekends in order to ensure you will be seated with the first wave of people. Otherwise you add your name to the hand-written list and could wait awhile. The food is great, with lots... More

Visited the grill with a friend and had a good breakfast each. My friend had never been to the Bluegrass Grill before and really enjoyed it. On the weekends this place normally has a line and wait list. Weekend parking can also be tough, but there is a city parking garage just down the street. If you don't want to... More

We stayed near the Downtown Mall (easy walk from either the Marriott Residence or Omni), and were looking for the ultimate local breakfast haunt -- someplace that came highly recommended by pretty much everyone we queried. Unanimous: this is the place. It's a family establishment, and has a great vibe. It's also rather small, so plan on waiting if you're... More

We built our own omelets and they came back perfect. Creative twists with the home fries and biscuits. Attentive and friendly service. There was a wait. Based on the number of people listed the estimate was an hour. Lots of people decided to go elsewhere so our wait was less than 30 minutes. Worth the wait.

Bluegrass Grill is your typical American greasy breakfast joint and you can expect all of the usual breakfast menu items. If you're looking for a breakfast place downtown, this is your best bet.

I love going out to eat but I usually don't want to waste our out-to-eat budget on breakfast food because it's often equal to whatever you'd make at home. This is not the case at Bluegrass Grill! Their breakfast menu has tons of items, and literally something for everyone's tastes. I had the Smokey Joe and it's one of the... More

Small restaurant with about a dozen tables, and no reservations taken. You put your name on the list when you arrive and if you're not in earshot when it's called, you get removed from the list. Despite these drawbacks, the food is delicious and servings ample. I had an eggs Benedict with salmon and bacon hollandaise, fried potatoes and biscuits... More

We heard this was good so we decided to try it out. It was a Sunday morning so it was real busy. If you go, make sure you notice that their system is that they have a clipboard by the door and you sign in and wait. We each had a great breakfast. My husband had the blueberry pancakes which... More
