We visited the Bluegrass Grill for Lunch as our first stop in Chattanooga after driving over from Asheville, NC. It is about a half mile from the Tennessee River and is in a historic part of town built in the 1890s that is being preserved...More

I've eaten here twice and loved both times. It's worth the wait. Their biscuits are wonderful. I've had the same server both times and she's the sweetest. Great prices.

I had the French toast casserole with chocolate drizzled across the top, strawberries, and whipped cream. It was amazing. My husband had a wonderful omelette and biscuit. The fruit side was excellent, not the typical chopped up fruit that you get in places. Wonderful service....More

Thank you. We also agree that fruit need to be fresh, as local as you can get, and enough of it to enjoy. Thank you for joining us for breakfast and thank you for reviewing us.

With home made bread and all natural ingredients, their sandwiches are terrific! We had a BLT and a grilled Reuben with fresh fruit sides. Iced tea is the real thing! Service was great...timely, friendly and efficient!

Incredibly amazing breakfast! This is a very small "diner" and even at 10:30 a.m. on a Tuesday you will wait in line! It was worth it. I had their version of eggs benedict - biscuit and slab ham with perfectly poached eggs and a hollandaise...More

Blue Grass Grill: It's not what the name implies. It's small. It's fresh. Nothing artificial is used in its food. Everything is locally sourced. We went for breakfast; the menu is creative, innovative and tasty! The BGG was founded by a former priest and the...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Tripadvisor lists your restaurant as having gluten free options. Aside from eggs, I didn't see any on your menu? Can you please let me know if you offer pancakes, bread, French toast or biscuits that are GF? Thanks.
