I can't even begin to talk about how much I loved Bluegrass. From the moment you walk in, till the time you leave, you will feel like family. Everyone has such a fantastic personality! The food is amazing and it's matched perfectly with top-shelf service. Joel was our server and he is one of the best servers I've ever had! He was attentive, personable, and timely.
A little fun surprise you will get which I'd say is more entertainment than anything, is, everyone who fills your water glass does it with a classic "long pour". It's not unusual to see a server pour water with the pitcher above their head! It was a nice touch and fun to watch!!!
I cannot wait to go back! Went on Tuesday night which is all you can eat ribs and jumbalaya...man, I was in Heaven!!!!
Big menu and huge selection of the beverage. Fresh light and crisp from Atlantic brewing Wisconsin, Sunday smoked special and banana foster. You can't go wrong with all this. Smile and friendly services and food come out fast. Pretty close with Northbrook shopping mall and parking lot on side.
Wonderful friendly staff. Lots of options. Good food.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Friendly and knowledgeable service
The owners and staff are the most accommodating I have ever seen. We purchased a special dinner get away for our children prior to some up in coming events. The restaurant went out of their way to ensure that everything was perfect. The kids raved about the delicious food and perfect service. Thanks to everyone at Bluegrass who went beyond the call.
My husband and I went for a date night! Our waiter, Ezekiel, was very good and attentive. The owner/ manager came to check on us as well! The food was great. My husband had a lean brisket sandwich which was smokey and delicious. I had the mushroom dish, also amazing. I had a “small” order of the bread pudding for dessert. Lots of chocolate chips and very rich. We were told about the Sunday night smoked chicken dinner! We will definitely come back for that! Everything on the menu looked great!
Fantastic time and food!
Had the Ahi Tuna it was delicious!
Always a great time when we go to Bluegrass!
Wonderful food, excellent service and a terrific bar! Consistently a good place!
Food was excellent but a little pricey plus $14 for a glass of wine was a bit much.Service was good.
Food was delicious.
Though out of the way, this popular spot--noisy at night, but quiet enough for thoughtful conversation at lunch-- though deservedly known for its Southern dishes, is reliable for making a great burger. Patrice, though newish, was a wonderful and caring server.
Food was excellent as always and service was great.
Wonderful dining experience! Shrimp and grits are heavenly. Teriyaki chicken is superb. The Caesar dressing is top notch. We love it here!
Excellent dinner. Blue BBQ burger was fantastic. Big beer menu. Personable staff.
Excellent food and service! Never disappointing....wonderful flavor options!
Loved the ribs, jambalaya is the best around. And crayfish on special
Great service. I ate the Key Lime Salad and this was delicious! It was a bit pricey and included a huge amount of crab and shrimp. I had the dressing on the side and it was perfect for dipping the veggies, shrimp and crab. My husband had the Reuben which he said was ok. They had a great Irish whiskey that topped off the evening. We also ordered the chocolate chip bread pudding; it was very good.
Friendly staff, delicious food, cozy atmosphere- a perfect family dinner out!
Consistently good, great restaurant every time we have been there.
Good food, great service, wide menu, but with a local neighborhood spot feel. Great place.
This was our first time at Bluegrass. I discovered it searching OpenTable for a local restaurant and noticed the other good reviews. We were greeted and seated promptly and all staff were friendly and helpful.
We ordered appetizers - the mushroom grill and ahi tuna tartar (the latter included a live betta fish swimming in a fishbowl under the tuna). Both were excellent. My wife had the Faroe Islands salmon and I had the jambalaya and half-slab of smoked ribs. Everything was well prepared and presented. The jambalaya included plenty of sausage and chicken -- a tad more shrimp would be good. They warn you that the ribs are not "fall off the bone" style which is true but they were delicious with a deep smoke flavor, and perfectly seasoned.
Perhaps because they emphasize Southern style cooking the barbecue sauce, baked beans, and even the potatoes were on the sweet side.
I would have awarded five stars for value but the per glass wine prices seemed on the high side for the size of the pour.
Overall an excellent experience, tasty food, and wonderful service.
The food was very good, our server was exceptional and the bananas foster dessert was incredible!!!! We'll definitely be back!!!
Wonderful, friendly service with fabulous, creative dishes!
In my opinion, when I go out to eat the food obviously has to be good BUT customer service/experience should be just as good if not better. Sometimes when we go out and I am not happy with my meal as long as the staff has a positive courteous attitude it's not that big of a deal. The staff at Bluegrass yesterday was AWESOME!!! We felt welcomed and taken care of. I went with my parents who do not speak English and I usually end up trying to explain the menu to them but one of your staff members overheard us and came over to explain the menu himself. How thoughtful of this young man. The waitresses all were on top of their game with coffee, soda, and water refills. Plates were cleared when we were done and we had a good clean table so that we could stick around and talk for a bit without having all these dirty dishes on the table. And to top it off the food was delicious. THANK YOU.
The food was excellent but the wait staff were phenomenal. I would recommend Blue Grass to anyone.
Staff was amazing and the food matched the service!
This was our first time and we will be back. The food was so delicious but the staff is truly amazing and made our night. You do not see this great level of customer service at many restaurants anymore. This place is a gem!!
Was really surprised. Food was excellent. Will be back for sure.
Wonderful,consistent great food and service!!
The food and service were outstanding as usual! This is one of our favorite places to dine!!
Always consistently good
Disappointed. Food not as good as expected. Noisy. Not a good value for what you pay. But service was perfect.
We went for my birthday. The service was very good. As was my custom cocktail. My kids loved the calamari appetizer. The entrees were good and I was blown away by the dessert served in a giant martini glass. Overall a very nice birthday dinner!!
Not many restaurants hit the mark 100%
Blue Grass does from the time you walk in until the time you pay your check.
The servers are the best I've ever encountered. They balance the entire meal encounter.
Just the right amount of checking how everything tastes to making sure you have what you need makes you feel cared about and not hovered over.
The food is impeccable and comes out in a timely manner. Freshness is obvious.
Desert is offered at just the right time and the tab arrives without having to wait around for it.
Blue Grass is outstanding!
Bluegrass is the go to spot for a taste of Cajun on the North Shore. Their shrimp and grits and their jambalaya are authentic and tasty and their gumbo is worthwhile also. If you don't know exactly where this nondescript building is, you will not likely notice it or find it easily.
Great as always
It was Valentine’s Day

We got seated ordered our deeelish food and had a deeeilightgul time
I had the chicken and shrimp with dirty rice .... fantastic
My hubby had the tilapia which was also deeelish

A great gem
We will be back
James welcomed us and made us feel right at home. Thanks again. The staff was wonderful!
Always like bluegrass. Family owned and operated - quality is always exceptional.
