A word from Sweet Grass Grill
A casual restaurant serving local and seasonal food. With relationships with about a half dozen local farms, the menu at Sweet Grass Grill varies week to week depending on the daily harvests. Expect seasonal soups and salads and a changing roster of entrees like their signature baby roast chicken and the freshest sustainably-raised fish. The bar, carved out of a single fallen oak tree from the Rockefeller Preserves, features a great cocktail menu, micro brews on draft and bottle, and many wines by the glass.

    I am vegan and I love this place. They have a few vegan appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts. And on top of that there are many vegan possible items and they are well marked on the menu. All the food is fresh and tasty. Also love that they have both sustainable and organic wines to choose from. I would recommend it to vegans and non vegans alike.

    I have been to this restaurant several times, and this last time was not the best experience … service was a little haphazard, and it was a little crazy with the bus boys seemingly breaking dishes and glasses every 5 minutes … the food is still fantastic, but I will hesitate to come again for brunch as the ambience was not an enjoyable one ...

    Our first time here and we loved it. Farm to table, lots of veggie dishes but something for everyone. Wonderful staff - very helpful (we needed a wheelchair ramp and they had a portable one that worked perfectly). I don't live near but if I did, I'd be thrilled to have found this gem. Already recommended it to some friends.

    I have eaten at this restaurant several times this year. Very attentive service. Menu is simple, but of high quality. The combinations of offerings including a salad or appetizer and entree make a satisfying and rich meal. Food was prepared, cooked and presented very well. Ambiance is tasteful and cozy. I would recommend this restaurant to people who enjoy and tasteful, relaxing setting serving high quality food.

    Husband and I took two elderly relatives out for drive and meal. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food which was fresh and delicious. We made it a point to arrive at the earliest dinner time (5 pm), as it gets noisier as the restaurant fills.

    The service was terrible. Our waitress disappeared for long periods of time. We were given no bread. When we finally flagged down our waitress she said they had run out of bread. Yet, other tables were still receiving bread. The food once it arrived was pretty good. My burger was done correctly (which doesn't happen often). The restaurant was too noisy for me.

    Ordered a burger medium cooked with mushrooms, caramelized onions and melted cheddar, it came out well done. Still tasted good but not great. Goat cheese dressing, beet salad was, dressing had little taste of the goat cheese. It tasted ok but nothing special. Sweet and sour grilled calamari tasted pre cooked and not very good. Not so bad to send back but will never order that dish again. Vegan chocolate mousse was again amazing since they reformulated the recipe. Dinners here have been a far better experience.

    This is a local "neighborhood gem." I love the variety and uniqueness of the menu. I also like how the dishes are creative and prepared with farm fresh ingredients. You feel like you're eating a tasty, quality meal. Oh, and the decor makes the whole dining experience homey and comfortable. Nice to sit outside for lunch with a friend on a beautiful summer day!

    Went for lunch on a Thursday. We were the only ones there at first. Our waitress was friendly but seemed to be new and had to revise information or confirm it with another woman who stayed behind the bar and stated corrections so that we could hear. Awkward and discourteous. We had chicken sandwiches which were nicely prepared and delicious. The sandwiches were served with fries which were cold and looked processed.

    First of all, the bartender needs to smile. He seemed very knowledgeable, but even though the place was not overly busy, he seemed too busy to make any kind of small talk with his customers. As far as food is concerned, While we loved the mussels, we did not eat or care for the calamari at all and were still charged for it. We also loved the cheese platter, but the avocado/edamame bruschetta just tasted like a lot of avocados and nothing else. We also did not like or eat the chocolate mousse. It was sooooo bitter.

    We had a bit of a wait for a table even with a reservation, but we were able to wait outside on a very pleasant day and didn't mind. Our waitress was outstanding and attentive, as were other restaurant staff we dealt with except for a rather glum busboy. We were there for brunch. It was our first visit. The portions were sufficient. I had fresh beet juice with ginger and apple which was very good as well as soup and salad and a side of their veggie hash which was great. I certainly appreciated the fresh farm to table food at reasonable prices. We are definitely looking forward to a return visit.

    My husband and I had a lovely dinner at the Sweet Grass Grill. We started with the flatbread appetizer and I got the wild mushroom/smoked tofu pasta, which had been recommended by our waitress, and it was outstanding. Much lighter that I would have anticipated and even though I had fully intended to bring half of it home, I ate the whole thing. My husband had the pork chops which were on special and loved them. We both had Sangria (which was okay - I'ld probably not order it again). Our waitress was fantastic from start to finish and the meals came out perfectly timed and fresh. We will definitely return.

    We arrived on a Saturday evening at 7:00pm and we were out of there before 7:45! The food was delicious although the burger which was done to perfection was a little dry (assuming they don't add any fat to the mix to keep it moister). I didn't even finish my beer or my wife her glass of wine. The food is expensive as you have come to expect for a "farm to table" type of place. It is prepared perfectly.
