Bluegrass is a casual restaurant located in Highland Park. With a cozy setting nestled into the west side of town it is a true destination dining location. Complete with a warm friendly bar and an American flare, Bluegrass blends in a little Southern influence into its repertoire. The wine and beer selections are all American, along with a full back bar, all hand selected to echo the quality of the fare. Aside from a beautiful setting, the restaurant has extraordinary food and service with a remarkable value.

Great Mardi Gras menu, food was good, restaurant is nice though it is a bit cold if one gets a table by the window in winter. A bonus: The owners are exceptionally nice.

Blue Grass is a most enjoyable restaurant. Their crawfish etouffee was delicious. I order that all the time. Wait staff were very friendly.

The bar-b-qued corned beef brisket is very good, as is the bread pudding.

This place is five stars all the way! The service from everyone is attentive and spot on. One of the owners is usually on the premises to make sure your experience is a pleasant one. We went there on a Tuesday when they have all you can eat ribs and jambalaya, but our timing was off and we got there late. Unfortunately, they ran out of ribs after our first order, but they did everything they could to make it up to us by bringing additional servings of a different entree and a free dessert! You won't be disappointed! Authentic New Orleans cuisine.

We love Bluegrass! It's interesting in that it's kind of Louisiana spicy fish food, yet ribs, burgers too- eclectic! I love the orange shrimp app, the shrimp pasta, the burgers, my husband loves the ribs and more. The place gets busy so we like to get there before 6 pm. The best part of Bluegrass to me is the friendly, helpful, wonderful staff. They really care. They treat the diners like family. And last time our server was the sweetest young man who did everything to make our dinner perfect. Plus, one of the manager/owners noticed my husband accidentally dropping his napkin on the floor twice (due to taking his sweater on and then off). The manager appeared asap with a new napkin both times, and he joked with us about my husband's clumsiness, not being at all annoyed! You have to try Bluegrass, it is a gem

This is becoming our "Go-to" place. The bar with Luis or Diana should be a North Shore institution. Great Cajun and Barbecue dishes, the Blackened Grouper on a bed of Crawfish Risotto is great.
