Reservation system was down and no one answered the phone for us to change reservations to add a third person. But worked out fine, plenty of tables when we arrived

this was our third visit to bluegrass and we will definitely be back! the food was delicious as always and our service was outstanding. The waiter actually walked down the street with one of our party to show him where he could park his car so he wouldn't get a ticket! now that is going above and beyond!
We will definitely be back!

Place was great! I had the lobster sliders, flank steak, and cheesecake. All which were excellent. Our server was very friendly. A bit on the pricey side but good sized portions

I thought the food was good but we went when it was restaurant week and did not get
the usual menu. I would have liked to have had the normal menu to choose from. Not
quite sure the purpose of restaurant week.

I had the chicken and dumplings. The dumplings were very very pasty and it was clear the dish had so much added flour to thicken it that it took away from the flavor.

The staff was very friendly and pleasant and offered great customer service. They were the best part of the evening.

We got there "early" (7pm) before the restaurant filled up, so we got great service.
The food was good, but not extraordinary.
We loved the crawfish hushpuppies, catfish sliders, hot friend chicken (a bit salty, though), and the desert. The steak was just ok.
We will come again when we can save up, or for a special occasion- this place is a bit above our price range.

To start, we were brought tap water with no ice--cool at best. Diet soda was $3.50, not $2 or $2.50. This is an outrageous price for a bar soda with lots of ice. Server did not ask if my partner wanted a refill. Bread and butter plates were on the table, but no bread of any kind came with our meals. When I asked why they were there, I was told, "to encourage people to order small plates."!
The menu is quite limited. I had salmon, which was decent--served over a melange of vegetable listed on the menu, but most of those listed were barely there. It was mostly fennel. Luckily, I like fennel. My partner had the chicken and dumplings. It was a large bowl of gray with shreds of chicken--looked like scraps. There were no dumplings and no real pieces of chicken. If it were me, for $17, I would have sent it back. Instead, my partner asked for dumplings. He was brought 3 marble sized pieces. There is no way I'd ever go to this restaurant again. Don't servers even know to serve food and beverages the way they'd like to be served? This place is a very poor value.

Food and service was good but the parking is lousy.

We were early for our brunch reservation and they still accommodated us. The service was awesome and our waiter gave us great advice on our choices. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere so much we came back the next day with no reservation and again were quickly seated and had another awesome food experience.

Blue Grass has very good southern food and I recommend it for restaurant week. Their portion sizes are very good and you can tell they put a lot of thought into the dishes and the ingredients are fresh and high quality. If you're coming her for a regular night, they have a great drink list that includes one of the best manhattans in baltimore. They also do a great charcuterie plate. Everyone can find something they like on the menu and the prices won't break the bank. You can also eat outside on nice nights.

This will all be meaningless shortly as I understand they're changing the name and concept.

The food at Bluegrass is horrible! Avoid this restaurant. I went here for brunch today with my husband. I ordered the banana pancakes and my husband had the smoked chicken sandwich. Both of them were practically inedible. The pancakes had this bourbon sauce on it and there was more sauce than pancakes! I had to scoop globs of it off to reach a small section of pancakes. My husband's chicken was burnt and the fries were cold and soggy. I will never return to Bluegrass again.

Done a couple of work rerated dinners at Bluegrass and they have always been fun with a vibrant atmosphere, good menu and cool drink list. Definitely in our rotation.
