Prairie Grass Café
Food was great service exceptional. And they remembered my wifes birthday
My dinner (boneless chicken) gave me “the runs.”
We had a baby shower at Prairie Grass and it was great! The staff, food, friendliness was better than we imagined!
I would give it a 5 star review! Thank you Prairie Grass!
Would definitely recommend the excellent food and service. We were seated promptly and the food delivery was quick. It would be nice if the noise level could be lessened, but it was not extremely noisy.
Have visited the establishment three times, and always a delightful experience!!!
Ample menu choices, delicious food, beautiful restaurant, topped off with first-class service from start to finish. Thank you for a lovely Father’s Day dinner.
We consider this a "neighborhood restaurant" even though the owner/proprietors have downtown Chicago credentials in their resumes. The menu features distinctive specials, but many of our long-time favorites remain on the regular menu. It's quite comfortable and service is always prompt and servers are very attentive and answer questions we may have about a dish or the preparation. Prices are reasonable and waits are usually short or non-existent. The ancho-marinated skirt steak is a favorite choice of mine and never disappoints, while my wife had the seasoned halibut special and was delighted to bring a small portion home for a future lunch or dinner. Wines were plentiful and varied. Overall, it's a place to which we're happy to return often.
Food was very good. I enjoyed my Shepherds Pie. It was like a beef stew with mashed potatoes. My husband liked the bunless burger. Our server was very helpful with dietary restrictions, returning to the kitchen numerous times to make inquiries regarding food preparation. All in all it was a very good meal.
We had brunch with our granddaughter and her husband and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The eggs benedict was amazing, as always.
We had a lovely dinner - food was excellent and service commendable.
Food and service excellent. Good value and good diversity on the menu. Only issue was the noise level, particularly caused by one large group that must have thought that their conversation was so interesting everyone wanted to hear their witty discussion. Management apologized but couldn’t seem to control the boors.
Food hasn't changed in years, which is both good and bad. Food is good, and not overly expensive for lunch. Prairie Grass is the only restaurant with this quality of food in this price range on Skokie Blvd. Everything else is either "fast food" or "deli" or expensive [Ruth's Chris] Noise level is way too loud.
Enjoyable dinner. The only thing that marred its being perfect was that the crusting on my tilapia was overly salted.
Food, service and ambiance was terrific as ALWAYS. Value is terrific. A bit on the noisy side for a business meeting - but for a group of friends or family, it's excellent!
Looking forward to returning soon.
My brother gets overwhelmed by noise. We asked for the quietest table and were placed in a back room with about 8 tables. Before we ordered, another 5 tables were seated. We asked to be moved and were immediately seated at a table in the back of the large room, with a drape nearby. After that, the noise level was satisfactory. The service was awesome, the meals were tremendous [ahi, lamb sausage and halibut], and the prices were appropriate. We very much enjoyed our meal!
Birthday celebration and Prairie Grass kindly brought over cupcakes with a candle. It was very thoughtful.
We came here for brunch on a Saturday morning. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The brunch choices were great and the service spectacular. Coffee was especially good. And, they brought out a cupcake on a plate that said Happy Birthday written in chocolate. Overall a wonderful experience and we will be back.
This restaurant is one of our favorites! Chef Sarah is amazingly talented and creates wonderful food as well as a warm welcoming atmosphere! It’s a must try!!
Salmon was delicious and cooked to perfection. My family loved the salmon pizza appetizer and baked cookie for dessert. The service is always outstanding and you can relax and enjoy time at dinner with a perfectly paved meal. Such a local gem!
Food was very average. Server was nice. They need a complete rehab of menu. Place has always had same things, nothing innovative. No gluten free menu. Women’s bathroom was not clean, toilet paper on floor, etc.
We have been there many times. It was particularly good on Saturday. Menu could use freshening up but otherwise a nice place. Good martinis
We had a delicious dinner and the food was amazing.
Waitress was excellent. Food above average certainly. No specials that evening as I recall. Noise level higher than we prefer.
Dinner was delicious. Had the salmon with Cesar salad.
Excellent food a d the wait service was outstanding
We were four couples who get together once a year for lunch. This was our second time going to Prairie Grass, and we all enjoyed it. What sets this restaurant apart, for me, is the freshness of the ingredients, the presentation of the dishes, the friendliness of the service personnel. It is also reasonably priced. We had a great time.
Quality in every way.
Always very good. Love the tilapia and the hamburgers.
Excellent Parmesan Tilapia and Chicken Cutlet. We sat in the back which helped because otherwise it can be noisy in some areas of the restaurant, and this was a good spot for conversation. The waiter was very courteous and let us meet up with friends we haven’t seen in a while. He gave us a lot of time there. The starters were good, asparagus soup and beet salad. I’ve always been happy going to this restaurant even after not being there in quite a while. Consistently good service and food.
Always delicious! Love salads at lunch. Tables not on top of each other. My favorite!
Great menu, great service and nice ambiance. It is a bit noisy for a quiet conversation.
The food and service was very nice but the noise level made it impossible to carry on a conversation. We found we needed to get out of there in order to hear ourselves think!
Prairie Grass never disappoints. Everyone is welcomint the minute you walk in the door. Wonderful varied menu from burgers to fresh Fish. The service cannot be beat. It’s our go to place. Thank you 😊
Food was outstanding as was the service. We had the halibut and the duck - delicious! The sticky toffee desert was one of my all time favorites!
Great dinner presentations. Well chosen combinations. Nate is an attentive server. We always ask to sit in his area.
Wonderfully prepared and delicious dinner
Food is always delicious! Perfect place for business lunch and staff is delightful! A truly gonto on the north shore.
Great place , great staff !
This was our 2nd visit. Should have known better even though our res. requested "quiet table". For Sunday Brunch it doesn't exist. Gr8 menu with imaginative choices. Food & Service 5 star. Can't recommend due to excessive noise making conversation difficult. Need to address their acoustic problems with sound absorbing materials and seating reconfiguration. Too bad 'cuz food was a delight.
