Prairie Moon is located on a block with several solid restaurants. Prairie Moon offers regional American dishes, a lot of seafood, and seasonal menu. Vegetarian and gluten-free options. I like the selection of small plates. Lots of great options and reasonable portions. Excellent craft beer list. Decent wine list. The outdoor patio, in the shadow of the L tracks, gives... More

We showed up around 9:15 pm and the place was still active and they stayed busy even when we left at 10:30 pm. It is hard to find good late night places in Evanston so this is a good choice. Food and service were very good. I would recommend the Coco Panko Shrimp as a great starter, crunchy coating, nice... More

I took my mother to Prairie Moon on a Saturday afternoon on the recommendation of a friend. The staff was exceedingly friendly and welcoming. We both had salads which were absolutely scrumptious. The 3-Berry Crumble warmed with ice cream was delicious! I loved listening to Motown and Soul music from back in my day. And it was a fascinating décor.... More

I had dinner at the Prarie Moon. Lots of good things about this place. Staff was really friendly,a as where the local partons. My steak was excellent, but best of all they dinners that were regular size. Not these humongous meals you usually get. Thank You.

Key Lime Chicken Tacos was a delicious choice for a light lunch. The outside patio area is a bit tired looking and could do with an update and our server seemed disinterested in our choices of food.

Nice traditional American fare, in both small plate and large plate sizes. Good, reliable food but not very interesting menu. A huge beer list with many craft beers, some local ones. Nice patio for outdoor dining.

Nice Evanston restaurant, close to our hotel. Service was great, and the food was average, with mostly CRAFT beers. Have big tables for large families and an inside bar & an outside patio bar. Overall Good Experience.
