We go here a few times a month. Great beer, lots of different kinds (they always change). Good, attentive service. Good food--not great, but never disappointing.

My wife and I stopped in for a late dinner (9pm). It was right across the street from our hotel. The decor is modern. The service was just fine. My wife was pleased with her pulled pork sandwich. I wasn't as happy with my steak sandwich. Instead of slices of steak, I got big chunks that were hard to bite... More

We came here a couple of times during our visit to Chicago as we have family in the Evanston area. It's a really nice place with a great atmosphere and the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious, it was difficult to choose because everything sounded amazing! Their burgers are unreal! Would highly recommend this for dinner... More

Prairie Moon has enough items on the menu in a sufficient spread of prices that there will be something to satisfy just about anyone in a group. For this reason and its central location I'd go again. The food is quite good, but the service and the high noise level detracts from the rating it would otherwise receive. If you... More

Ordered pulled pork / beef combo and both meats were just above room temperature. Brussels sprouts were drowning in oil with greasy bacon.

I've been to Prairie Moon three times now, and each time it just gets better and better. The salmon is so fresh, it melts in your mouth. And the cilantro ranch dressing is to die for. Easter Brunch is coming up and sure to be a treat, it was last year! Try this place. The prices are reasonable and the... More

I had dinner with a friend and we were looking for someplace where we could each find food that would agree with our sometimes difficult dietary needs and a quiet place where we could talk. When we walked in the front door, I wasn't so sure about the "quiet place" because the bar area was pretty loud - maybe getting... More

You can go slightly gourmet or casual dining at this place. We went casual - po' boy chicken sandwich and tacos. Food was good, but I'm glad we weren't in a big hurry. It was not crowded at all, but it still took 7-8 minutes to get noticed when we sat down and seemingly a long time to get our... More

While visiting after a Rotary event I enjoyed nice cuisine and welcoming service. I was very much surprised by the Key Lime Tacos and loved the Prosecco served with it! A definite recommendation for my friends!

Had a most delicious and filling lunch yesterday. The shrimp with Sage Polenta was so flavorful, as was the special with smoked salmon, pasta, Gilroy garlic, spinach and Roma tomatoes. Also enjoyed the authentic sourdough bread served before the meal. The hardest thing was trying to decide what to order because the menu had so many appealing items. Delicious!
