Not your average restaurant, as it reflects a younger, more relaxed way of life. BUT, good food and good service. Food runs the entire spectrum: all fresh, locally grown if available, both meat and veggy entrees, gluten free available, comfort food and fancy food. Give...More

I've had mixed experiences at Bluegrass Kitchen, usually due to my hope for a specific dish that has been dropped from the rotating menu. This time I tried Hoppin John because I wanted vegetarian--great option. Other winners have been catfish and fried bologna.

The Bluegrass Kitchen was recommended to us for our visit to the area and it is a bit different than my usual stops. Sadly,we went for what they called "betwixt" lunch and dinner,so our choices were limited by their menu. I had a delicious meat...More

The food is excellent, and they offer a wide variety of local and craft beers. It's a bit pricy but you do get what you pay for. The atmosphere is also pretty cool with local art decorating an eclectic dining area.

Service was a bit slow, but we got a seat right away and the food was excellent. I highly recommend the home cured, grass-fed corned beef hash stack.

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.
