Rolled into Charleston tired and looking for some decent vegetarian food. Stumbled upon a place in the Bridge Road area that was too upscale and pricey for us in our tired and sweaty condition but an employee kindly suggested that the Bluegrass Kitchen might meet our needs. We found the BGK and got veggie burgers, salad and tofu wings to... More

went because so much raving about this place. Was much disappointed. Service was slow, food was stone cold, Both my partner and I found the food to be far less tasty than we had hoped for. A bummer of an experience overall. If you appreciate vegan styled odd stuff- go. There is nothing bluegrass about the place- we rather expected... More

Today, I was astounded. At the suggestion of a friend, we (two couples) visited this establishment for dinner. It is a Vegan based restaurant with some meat dishes on the menu. Our dinner to my surprise was great but the customer service was atrocious. Hannah, the server forgot over 15 minutes for my date's glass of wine. 20 minutes elapsed... More

During a road trip across Maryland, West Virginia, and Kentucky, we got into Charleston, WV around lunchtime (about 1 PM). I had scouted restaurants on our iPad and found Bluegrass Kitchen listed as #8 out of 219 restaurants in Charleston. Descriptions included quirky, something different, and great "farm to fork" diner. It sounded interesting so we stopped there. The neighborhood... More

Great music on Tuesday nights. We eat at the bar and listen to Bluegrass with John Lily and Will Carter etc. Lots of local people are regulars so get there early.

Doesn't look like much from the outside but the quirky decor and tight, smart menu are worth taking a chance. By far the best place we saw in Charleston.

Arty place in a rundown sort of neighborhood. From the outside, it doesn't look like much but inside, it was crowded with people of all ages enjoying the modern comfort food menu. The service, food and beer were good.

This appears like a bad experience when you walk through the door, but you'll soon find out it's a Jewel in the Culinary World, a bit pricey, but it's fresh, homemade for the most part, and outstanding ! You have to give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
