My husband and I came here on our way back to PA. We are vegan and this restaurant was recommended to us. There were several veggie options! Our server, Debra, was outstanding. She was more than accommodating and helped us find several yummy options. Only thing I would recommend is that they change the name of the "mock chicken dumplings."... More

This place is a hidden treasure! I've been many times. The blueberry buttermilk pie is to die for. I also loveeeeee the short rib sandwich. If you go please get the pie. It is seriously a MUST!!!

My review is for the service, or lack thereof. Our hotel recommended this place for a late lunch on 10/13/16. I would describe the restaurant as in the ghetto. Parking was behind the restaurant. We had of our golf clubs in the car and were a little hesitant leaving the vehicle unattended. There is a notice posted that the YMCA... More

Ate here on a recommendation after visiting the capital. Decor is hippyish. Good and service was good. Had the spinach salad and hubby had the falafel sandwich. The green tea ice tea is really good. Would go back again if in the area

The food was eclectic and yummy. The pie was amazing. Exposed brick interior was a pretty cool backdrop. Full bar, and the wine was good. Menu was very inventive. Had a really nice meal.

We had side salads (delicious homemade dressings) and the Eggs Bene (tasty!), veggie a little mushy but pretty good), Chicken sandwich (good), corned beef hash stack (good). Good (not great) coffee. But... More

After a long meeting in Charleston a few friends and I visited Bluegrass Kitchen. It was so fun. Different but good food, full bar with delicious bloody Mary's and if it's your thing, tofu wings! Definitely worth s visit for late lunch or dinner. Quirky but cool. You'll love it!

College towns often have many good food offerings. Tuna melts are my fave. This sandwich at Bluegrass had fresh mixed greens piled high inside rye bread. It was served alongside home made potato chips. We shared three homemade desserts, chai cake, chocolate bread pudding, and Yummy! Service was excellent and atmosphere inspired attendance at Bluegrass events within the area. Bluegrass... More
