A local resident recommended the Bluegrass Kitchen, and we were glad we followed his advice. I had wonderful, crispy fish and some of the best fries I've ever tasted. The only drawbacks were the noise that made it hard to converse with my hearing-aid-wearing husband...More

This eclectic mix of local foods with local art, and of course live music is a great choice any night of the week! I enjoyed the meatloaf, green beans and mashed cauliflower. Just to add a twist the tangy “gravy” was a sauce of fried...More

This place serves pretty good food but is fairly expensive in an area with much more modest prices. While the wait staff is friendly, it seems they go overboard with the piercings, tattoos, off beat clothes, etc. But the food is good. It gets a...More

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.
