Sweet Grass Restaurant is the story of two Johnson and Wales graduates, Luke Combs and Ryan Andrews, whose friendship and passion for food delivered them nearly 600 miles from the Carolina’s. Utilizing local ingredients of the Midwest with the cuisine of the south sets the stage for great Americana in a truly unique dining experience.
Bloomington is hometown to chef and owner Luke Combs who learned his love for food and cooking in his grandmother’s kitchen. Relax with us in our open and airy dining room. Large windows, palm trees and plantation shutters evoke the Carolina shoreline. Our warm and friendly wait staff will move fast to serve your favorite beverage and make you feel at home. Take your time considering the wide range of options on our menu. There is something for everyone: Familiar comfort foods prepared with home kitchen freshness and originality plus elegant entrees with fine sauces, with rich and subtle flavors that are sure to exceed expectations. Sweet Grass features southern favorites such as fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, peel and eat shrimp, crab cakes and BBQ. Hand made potato chips and luscious burgers are side by side on the menu with our signature Seabrooke Salad, roasted pork tenderloin, and filet mignon. Vegetarian options include our original Carolina Squash Bake and Pimento Cheese Spread on flatbread.
Our comfortable bar has room to stretch out with friends, enjoy a ball game on our wide screen TV, or play shuffleboard. Get to know us and come back often. Ask for your favorite wait-person, choose a favorite microbrew fresh on tap, or let us help you choose a good wine pairing for your meal.
