This is a great place to go for delicious food provided in a relaxed atmosphere, whether with friends, family or business. They have a wonderfully varied and reasonably priced menu. It is probably the best food value in town. It is family friendly and also has room for large groups or parties. I highty recommend.

Prairie Moon is our go-to spot to meet friends and family for a great meal. The fish chowder and black 'n blue burger are a couple of our favorites. Great selection of micro brews on tap too. Best of all, the kitchen is open late! There is also a back room available for larger private parties. We had our wedding... More

Overall, this restaurant is welcoming and fun. It's a very pleasant venue, with a lot of light and space. As a vegan, I am always appreciative when a restaurant offers delicious plant-based choices. They have a terrific soup, salads, etc., and have been very accommodating when I've asked to substitute or eliminate an ingredient.

The steak ciabatta sandwich may be the best sandwich I've had in my 45 years! So good, I ordered it two days in a row while staying across the street at the Best Western!

Was a favorite at one time, but is a bad need of a makeover. Food falls into the "0k" area and does not compel one to make it a place for a special meal with friends.

If you like beer...this is your place. They have an unbelievable selection of micro beers from all over the world. The food is adequate. Mostly pub fare but if you wash it down with a good beer... Nice atmosphere as well.
