You guys. If you are in Chattanooga, rain or shine, cold or warm, go wait in this line for 30 minutes to eat this amazing food. It is number one for a reason. I came here on my bachelorette trip with a group of 7 girls and we waited for about 30 minutes (the inside is pretty small). Once seated... More

Thank you for this review. We make our honey wheat pancakes from scratch and we put good stuff in them. Butter, buttermilk, cinnamon. Apples, what germ. We are experimenting with a gluten free variety using teff, almond and rice flour, but just can't get it right yet. Thank you for your warm support More

We've eaten at this establishment more times that I can count and have never had a disappointing meal there! It's our "go to" place for breakfast without a doubt, but don't show up during prime meal times and definitely be ready to stand in line and wait for a table. They turn the tables pretty quickly, but there's a reason... More

Based on T.A. reviews, we waited about 40 minutes for breakfast at this place yesterday. The restaurant did a great job moving tables along, but the place is fairly limited and is all four-tops, which led to a lot of wasted chairs and space. We finally got two seats at the counter. Our two-person order came out with three outright... More

As one of the owner/cooks please please send back your food that does not live up to your expectations. If we can't remake it right, we will not charge you. There are simple moments when we fail our own quality control due to events we can't control because those things happen. Thank you for the opportunity to correct our mistakes.... More

Had a great lunch. Our table had two Rueben's on choice of bread served with fried potatoes that were outstanding, Half a BLT was more than enough. Plenty of food, reasonably priced and great service. Loved the mission too. Wish I lived in the area, would eat here often!

Very interesting atmosphere, menu and background. Locally owned AND still operated by the family. Salmon salad good but I would have preferred a whole piece of salmon instead of the small bites and less Parmesan cheese on top. Blue cheese and their house dressings were delicious. The club sandwich was stacked with meats! Looking forward to returning and trying other... More

We only knew about this place because we were looking for somewhere in Chattanooga to have a late breakfast. We looked up places to eat on Trip Advisor and the excellent reviews of the Bluegrass Grill were correct. This little restaurant serves homemade breakfast and lunch. They only stay open until 2pm during the week and 1 pm on Saturdays.... More

Our brunch hit all the spots needed for a food coma! The grits were made to perfection, and if you can make grits like my mother you are alright with me! The apple butter and biscuits were scrumptious!
