I went to Sweet Grass with my wife for lunch and the restaurant was almost completely empty. I believe there was one other table taken. Despite the slow business, we waited FOREVER to be served. We even had to get up, walk back in, and...More

I keep trying to like this restaurant but it again fails expectations. Sweet Grass has an interesting menu with nice twists on southern dishes, and traditional menu items, but execution fails on several fronts. Poor service. Ignoring customers.

Came here on a Saturday night for dinner with friends. From the outside this place looks nice but on the inside the atmosphere is less impressive. Decor seems mismatched and it looks as if the place doesn't know which way to go with their theme....More

I've been to Sweet Grass for a number of years, and I'm sorry to say that the quality of their food has decline since new owners have taken it over. And unfortunately, it seems to be dirtier. I used to absolutely love coming in and...More

Sadly, I should have read the recent reviews before I ate here. I can confirm that the quality is really not up to par to any of the other restaurants in Bloomington. I had the fusion beef stew, which was beyond bland and the potatoes...More
