I've been to Sweet Grass for a number of years, and I'm sorry to say that the quality of their food has decline since new owners have taken it over. And unfortunately, it seems to be dirtier. I used to absolutely love coming in and witness the atmosphere. NO MORE ! Although the staff has given their opinion, so I've... More

Sadly, I should have read the recent reviews before I ate here. I can confirm that the quality is really not up to par to any of the other restaurants in Bloomington. I had the fusion beef stew, which was beyond bland and the potatoes in it were rockhard and not cooked. When I returned it, they offered to remove... More

Visiting Bloomington and staying in a bed and breakfast, our host and hostess invited us to join them for dinner; and we ended up at Sweet Grass and had a very nice dinner.

This place USED to be fantastic. I always get the grilled catfish tacos and either a garden salad or soup of the day. Since new owners took over, the food and service have been on the decline. Food quality is inconsistent, sometimes it's good, sometimes the catfish has been burned to a crisp. Unfortunately, my most recent trip will likely... More

Sweet Grass has decently good food, although the prices were a little high. We were with a group of 12 and service was quick and efficient. They don't take reservations, which I found odd, but had no trouble seating us. I had the Seabrooke salad with grilled chicken, which was very good. Everyone seemed happy with their food.

I live in Bloomington, and I won't eat here ever again. On two different occasions my chicken was very undercooked (raw). They took the food, heated it some more and brought it back. No apologies. Full price. Never again.

Fantastic. My wife had the Roasted Tomato Soup and loved it. I had the Fried Green Tomato BLT. I had them add their homemade pimento cheese. Great sandwich.

I used to LOVE the food here. The pimento burger was the best burger I've ever had in my life. No joke. Fried grit cake was great too. Their southern menu was just so unique and their food was fantastic. However they changed ownership a few months ago. A young woman whose family owns a (Chinese) restaurant in China now... More

Food was very good. I had a breaded tenderloin sandwich. My companion has a bacon burger, with mushrooms. The portions are large and tasty. Lunch with tip was $40.00, no alcohol was involved, which is way I thought it was pricey. There is no ceiling so noise level when busy it a loud setting. I think this is a good... More

The menu has a very southern feel with fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, lots of burger and sandwich options and yummy house made chips and ranch dressing. Seriously the best ranch dressing I've had! A little pricey, but so worth it. We were not disappointed with anything we ordered!
