Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon while traveling. Picked it partly due to the easy on off from 64. First impressions not great. Not the nicest part of town and an older building but turned out to be nicely restored inside. Tin ceilings were gorgeous. Brunch menu was limited but the wife and I were both able to find something... More

If you aren't recognized when you walk in, you are persona non grata here. A little too insular for my tastes.

We went to the Bluegrass Kitchen for a date night and weren't disappointed. We loved the beer cheese fondue appetizer, the large beer selection, and the live music (no cover fee). I had the cod and chips as an entree and my husband had the meatloaf, both were excellent. We'll definitely be back!

Went here for lunch with a business associate on a weekday. Arrived at peak lunch time, about 75% full, seated right away. Seating options included a couch, arm chairs at a table and more traditional tables and chairs. And interesting older building with architectural detail, and the mustiness that goes along with old furniture and an old building. A good... More

I sought out The Bluegrass Kitchen on a recommendation of my business associate. I'll have to say that this was the hardest place to get into! I parked and walked to the front. There was a door under the Bluegrass Kitchen sign but it was locked. Hmm... I looked and saw a door to the right. I walked there, tried... More

I saw reviews of the Bluegrass Kitchen and decided I had to give it a try as I was visiting Charleston. A good range of food and friendly staff made it an enjoyable visit. I had the Corned Beef Hash breakfast which was delicious. Not the most luxurious surroundings but worth it for the food. Quite busy at lunchtime so... More

I met a group for brunch and I assumed typical brunch food with lots of variety....wrong. The menu was limited and most items were al a cart, not a lot of full meal options. One friend had the eggs bene and enjoyed it another had the shrimp and grits they said it was good. My friend who ordered the bagel... More

I was in town on business and asked some of the people I was working with where I could find a restaurant that had good southern home cooking. They suggested the Bluegrass Kitchen. My wife was traveling with me and we tried this place out. The food was amazing I had the pork chop with mashed sweet potatoes and my... More

My brother and I were in Charleston overnight and our hosts recommended the Bluegrass Kitchen. Street parking available around the corner--greetings from the bartender as we entered the door. A good martini & a glass of wine started us off until our dinners arrived. The food was hot, fresh and inventive. The walls are decorated in local artwork (?) The... More

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.
