Stopped at Bluegrass Kitchen on our last road trip. Neighborhood favorite feel. Delicious sandwiches. Can't go wrong with the Grilled Pimento Cheese or Rueben. The brisket on the Rueben was the one of the best we have tasted. To experience the true essence of this...More

This place was outstanding! Food was delicious and such a pleasant surprise. Trip Advisor is the only reason we stop at places while traveling and they nailed this.

The food and service was wonderful. I would suggest the meatloaf with mashed potatoes and italian style green beans. Very large portion for the price. I was with a large group for a birthday party and we were very happy with the food and service.

Wonderful place for breakfast. Had to queue, having arrived there about 10.15, but only for about 10 minutes, as the staff are very efficient at clearing tables, without making you feel rushed. Great menu and very friendly service. Set us up for the whole day.

We stopped in Charleston on the way back from Outer Banks. We picked this restaurant because they offer several vegetarian options. Remember that the parking lot is off the side street in the back. We saw some random people walking around the area, so weren't...More

Don't let the neighborhood dissuade you. Been here numerous times, trout with grits and greens can't be beat. Don't pass on the local drafts as well.

Charleston's authentic farm-to-table made-from-scratch modern comfort food restaurant. With a legion of chefs who caringly practice the art of food, BgK offers delicious brunch, dinner, and desserts for hungry vegetarians, meat connoisseurs, and everyone in-between. 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.
