Prairie Moon was right across the street from our hotel. We had gone to see a musical, and were starving for dinner afterward. I read the reviews of Prairie Moon, decided to visit for a late-night dinner. We had seven in our group, and they didn't bat an eye. We were seated on the side patio, which was well lit... More

I usually come here at night for drinking festivities with friends but I almost always end up getting food too because it's so good! They serve great fries and onion rings, and I really love their chicken wings. The beer selection is very good, including many IL breweries. The meals are good too, not just the bar-type food, and I... More

They have a really good beer selection, darts and foosball towards the back of the bar, a good sized menu, and nice atmosphere. I like to sit on the patio there when it's nice out. I really like their burgers, and their cheese fries are REALLY good. It comes with this gooey white cheddar-type cheese and they are so delicious!

Been to Prairie Moon enough times for both lunch and dinner, with friends and family, but did not get around to sharing a review till now. Excellent selection of beers and drinks, food and service has always been excellent - great selection of sandwiches, dinner entrees, salads, and snacks, served with a flair accompanied by warm sourdough bread. Salmon on... More

This restaurant located in front of Best Western University Plaza in Evanston offers original menus based on Louisianna gastronomy. Discounts offered to hotel guest. The music is a bit too loud, but the food and service are excellent.

I think Prairie Moon succeeds at being both a good pub and a good restaurant. There is a small enclosed patio on the side of the building, which is pleasant and quieter than inside. I like the menu. It has regional American specialties from all over the country. For example, there are crab cakes, crawfish etouffee, New Mexican Painted Soup... More

Prairie Moon is a great, local place. They have a large selection of Belgian beers, local brews, wine, and even some cider. I've only eaten their burgers (which are delicious and reasonably priced) and was pleasantly surprised by their healthy options, such as substituting fruit for fruits. Prairie Moon's kitchen is open later than Nevin's, which makes it a great... More

This is kind of my go to place for pub fare as I live in the neighborhood. They have a great selection of beer and a constant flow of rotating taps. The food is good basic pub fare and there is plenty of room so seating is usually not a problem even during busy times. Try the painted soup. It's... More

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
