We first went here with our son, and everyone loved it so much that our daughter complained that she had not been able to go, so we went again last night with her, and, of course, she loved it as well. The food is all great; I would definitely recommend the gumbo and etoufee, both of which are fantastic. They... More

Four for dinner. One entree-slab of smoked ribs. Finished to the last bone. Second entree-smoked brisket. Great taste. Third entree was the Sunday sampler comprising ribs, brisket and chicken. This dish was shared. Each item was delicious. The service was very good. Have not been here for some time, but we will return soon.

Google searched for something nearby the mall and found this place. Great atmosphere, buzzing with conversation at an almost full dinning room. Great staff, got me seated right away even though I had no reservations. Was recommended the Tuesday all you can eat ribs and jambalaya, and was asked twice if I wanted a second plate even before I was... More

We had a great family meal here. My wife loved her gumbo and skirt steak sandwich. We shared a brisket taster which got mixed reviews. I had the ribs and jambalaya which was fantastic . The jambalaya was outstanding. Our 15 year old as usual had a burger which he said was just ok but it was huge and he... More

I have been before and have never been disappointed. For whatever reason, I always forget to go here. The service is impeccable and the entire staff welcomes you as if you are family. The food was wonderful and pretty original. I had a special corned beef brisket sandwich that was done with a barbecue sauce. It was wonderful. Everything about... More

Bluegrass is great from start to finish. The hosts (Joanie and Jim) are always welcoming and the bar is great. Luis is master at creating tasty and potent cocktails. The food is consistently good and you will always finish dinner in a great mood. The decor is a little funky, not sure what they were going for, but it's all... More

This is a nice change of pace restaurant in northern suburban area. Not bar food, not fast food, not trendy small plates but original quality food. The menu is eclectic and good. Enjoy going here once in a while for something different.

Enjoyed dinner here with another couple last night and had a great meal. The staff and food were great. The restaurant is loud which makes visiting hard when your sitting in one of the spacious booths as we were. Seems like everyone wanted to dine at 6 PM. Maybe eat a little later for a quieter experience as the crowd... More

I am bored of Italian and Chinese food. This is the perfect alternative. I live only a few blocks from Bluegrass and for years avoided it for no reason. This is a rarity in the North Shore - New Age Cajun. I went once in May to try it out and I've been back 3 times since. I love the... More
