Cute, friendly place with wonderful food. The very nice waitress let us order the special appetizer - oysters with a ramp cocktail sauce although usually it can only be ordered with dinner. We will definitely be back!

Overpriced, overrated. Definitely paying for the artsy atmosphere. There are some vegetarian options. Biggest plus is live music

Located in Charleston's East End this is a real treat for for anyone in this part of town. the food is well prepared and the service is professional. Much of the cuisine is prepared with organic ingredients. Very good quality.

We were here two years ago driving through on vacation and made a point to stop again. The food is amazing, the beer cold, the waitress a sweetheart, and this night there was live music. As a vegetarian I was in heaven. The non-vegetarians were too.

I selected Bluegrass Kitchen for my birthday celebration last week, and, as always, it did not disappoint! The short ribs with blackeyed peas was melt in your mouth fabulous. My husband at the salmon, also fabulous! The coconut cake was a special treat! Love this restaurant!

For dinner, this is one of the best restaurants in Charleston. The trout is bar none, the best I have had in West Virginia as is the braised kale. I highly recommend the beer cheese.

Have eaten here several times over the years, actually going out of our way it was so good, first meal upon arrival at the airport, etc. Loved, loved, loved the old BK. This week, however, after anticipating greatness based on previous experiences, our return to BK was a sad and notable disappointment. 3 stars based solely on the nice servers... More

We read the reviews on this place and were very excited to give it a try. Unfortunately we got there just at lunch close time, and they advised that they had sold out of all of the food for the afternoon. It was disappointing, but the bartender/waitress advised us of another fresh, local place across the street that they highly... More

The location is a bit inconvenient for parking, They restaurant was nice and servers were super friendly, We opted for their burger and homemade chips, it was good but not sure worth paying 14.00 for a burger. Over all good experience.

This was a really good stop for a meal while traveling the southeast. We phoned ahead to be sure of their closing time, and they suggested holding a table for us. One of us had the short ribs with black-eyed pea stew, while the other had the avocado tacos - both delicious. Every effort was made to make us feel... More
