My wife, daughter, and I went to Sweet Grass a couple of weeks ago. We called ahead and were told there was no wait for a table. We got there and were told that there would be a 20-minute wait. We waited 45 minutes for a table. After being seated, we waited 10 minutes without anyone coming to the table.... More

We went in the evening and they were very busy, but we did not have to wait long for a table. I wonder if people who are confused by the atmosphere are used to "themed" restaurants and confused by fusion? When we sat down, we were near the beer coolers and our table rocked a little. We didn't say anything... More

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. The Cotija fries are what my friends wanted to order as an appetizer. For dinner... 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 witness the atmosphere. NO MORE ! Although the staff has given their opinion, so I've... 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 in it were rockhard and not cooked. When I returned it, they offered to remove... More

Visiting Bloomington and staying in a bed and breakfast, our host and hostess invited us to join them for dinner; and we ended up at Sweet Grass and had a very nice dinner.

This place USED to be fantastic. I always get the grilled catfish tacos and either a garden salad or soup of the day. Since new owners took over, the food and service have been on the decline. Food quality is inconsistent, sometimes it's good, sometimes the catfish has been burned to a crisp. Unfortunately, my most recent trip will likely... More

Sweet Grass has decently good food, although the prices were a little high. We were with a group of 12 and service was quick and efficient. They don't take reservations, which I found odd, but had no trouble seating us. I had the Seabrooke salad with grilled chicken, which was very good. Everyone seemed happy with their food.

I live in Bloomington, and I won't eat here ever again. On two different occasions my chicken was very undercooked (raw). They took the food, heated it some more and brought it back. No apologies. Full price. Never again.

Fantastic. My wife had the Roasted Tomato Soup and loved it. I had the Fried Green Tomato BLT. I had them add their homemade pimento cheese. Great sandwich.
