Funding good organic options for meals is sometimes challenging, but the Blue Grass Kitchen has good organic and non/organic options. The atmosphere is somewhat rustic - not fancy. The service is great.

Always a great place to try some local fare. I look forward to the weekly menu specials, and their cocktails. Love the atmosphere and the chance to catch some live music a few nights a week.

Really poor. Surly service and terribly overpriced. It has a good reputation among the shabby-chic crowd in Charleston, but Birkies and dreadlocks will only get a place so far. Go next door to Little India for a great dining experience.

We went here for a brunch/lunch, and overall, enjoyed our meal. To say the least, the décor and overall approach of Bluegrass is "Ecclectic", but this was a good vibe to the place. The staff was very busy, but were friendly throughout. The menu changes...More
