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.

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!!

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.
