I would def recommend the breakfast burrito! The homemade cinnamon roll was also really good but it was large and pretty sweet so I suggest splitting that. You get a good amount of food here. We went mid morning on a Tuesday and the wait...More

Really enjoyed the breakfast. Veggie eggs Benedict one of the best American Breakfasts I've had. Service was very friendly. (minor complaint - the process of getting a table is a bit disorganised).

The food is great, the service excellent. The only reason I didn't give it a five is because I'm an introvert and sometimes sharing a table is a must.

I love your honesty! It is a fact that we have a small dining room. Come early or late or in between breakfast and lunch and there are usual open tables. Thank you for the review

Go early to grab a table at this family run wonderful "in" spot. Order anything on the menu, it is all fantastic and scratch made. If you arrive late, after 8am, expect a wait.

Breakfast at The Bluegrass Grill is always great but be prepared to hang out and wait for a table as they are always busy. If you want to meet new people you can always let the staff know you are willing to share your table.
