Went here for lunch with a business associate on a weekday. Arrived at peak lunch time, about 75% full, seated right away. Seating options included a couch, arm chairs at a table and more traditional tables and chairs. And interesting older building with architectural detail, and the mustiness that goes along with old furniture and an old building. A good... More

I sought out The Bluegrass Kitchen on a recommendation of my business associate. I'll have to say that this was the hardest place to get into! I parked and walked to the front. There was a door under the Bluegrass Kitchen sign but it was locked. Hmm... I looked and saw a door to the right. I walked there, tried... More

I saw reviews of the Bluegrass Kitchen and decided I had to give it a try as I was visiting Charleston. A good range of food and friendly staff made it an enjoyable visit. I had the Corned Beef Hash breakfast which was delicious. Not the most luxurious surroundings but worth it for the food. Quite busy at lunchtime so... More

I met a group for brunch and I assumed typical brunch food with lots of variety....wrong. The menu was limited and most items were al a cart, not a lot of full meal options. One friend had the eggs bene and enjoyed it another had the shrimp and grits they said it was good. My friend who ordered the bagel... More

I was in town on business and asked some of the people I was working with where I could find a restaurant that had good southern home cooking. They suggested the Bluegrass Kitchen. My wife was traveling with me and we tried this place out. The food was amazing I had the pork chop with mashed sweet potatoes and my... More

My brother and I were in Charleston overnight and our hosts recommended the Bluegrass Kitchen. Street parking available around the corner--greetings from the bartender as we entered the door. A good martini & a glass of wine started us off until our dinners arrived. The food was hot, fresh and inventive. The walls are decorated in local artwork (?) The... More

We ate here tonight and are so glad that we did! It was fun and our food was fabulous. We are staying the night in the area on our way south and wanted something that was not a chain restaurant. Wait staff was friendly and fast. It was easy to locate via our GPS and parking was easy around the... More

This is an eclectic place to eat. If you are looking for burgers or typical lunch type food this is not your place. We picked this place based on reviews we read. I got the Perfect chicken sandwich and my husband ordered the Housemade Meatloaf Sandwich. Both came with homemade chips. Food was very tasty. It was the sun dried... More

My daughter moved to Charleston and was told by a friend to try the Blue Grass Kitchen. We had a nice dinner there. She loved the place and I liked it. She had the elderflower gimlet to start and I tried it - delicious drink! We shared the beer fondue appetizer - she loved it. I had the organic tostada... More

In the circa 1920 building with pressed tin ceilings and exposed architecture, Bluegrass also serves as a gallery for local artists. In the Tap room there's live original acoustic music most nights, with finely crafted cocktails, a curated wine list & a bounty of beers. Close to West Virginia's beautiful capitol grounds the family-owned and operated Bluegrass Kitchen has been featured in The New York Times and Wall Street Journal as well as Bon Appetit, Garden & Gun, Taste of the South magazines and many more.
