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.

Not your average restaurant, as it reflects a younger, more relaxed way of life. BUT, good food and good service. Food runs the entire spectrum: all fresh, locally grown if available, both meat and veggy entrees, gluten free available, comfort food and fancy food. Give this place a try for something different and something good.

We enjoyed this farm to table restaurant in Charleston's funky and up and coming East End. Great grassfed burgers. Also had free range chicken. Able to serve our Paleo, gluten-free family. Bluegrass music at night. Large bar. We were there in late afternoon, so nearly empty. Staff was very friendly.

I've had mixed experiences at Bluegrass Kitchen, usually due to my hope for a specific dish that has been dropped from the rotating menu. This time I tried Hoppin John because I wanted vegetarian--great option. Other winners have been catfish and fried bologna.

The Bluegrass Kitchen was recommended to us for our visit to the area and it is a bit different than my usual stops. Sadly,we went for what they called "betwixt" lunch and dinner,so our choices were limited by their menu. I had a delicious meat loaf sandwich,which comes with mashed potatoes on it. Server was excellent... This appears to be... More

The food is excellent, and they offer a wide variety of local and craft beers. It's a bit pricy but you do get what you pay for. The atmosphere is also pretty cool with local art decorating an eclectic dining area.

Road tripping from KC to Virginia Beach and have eaten at many new Restaurants. By far Bluegrass Kitchen was the most pleasant surprise. Had the Sunday brunch and everything was delicious. My 9 and 11 year olds both emptied their plates. Shrimp and grits, and corned beef hash were our favorites. Service was not at all slow and the place... More

Loved this place. Welcome reprieve from some of the other local bar food restaurants. Had a lovely white burgandy then the fried chicken! It was great. Wish we could have gone back to try other things. My husband had the Hoppin Jons...loved it
