I only came here for a drink (iced tea), but it has lots of seating and a nice outdoor section. I guess it must get busy with college students during the school year but it was nice and quiet during the day. Outside seating is really nice and even though it is on a busy street, it's still relatively quiet.... More

We stopped in for a drink after dropping our daughter off at Northwestern. Great staff, good food, and just a real welcoming, homey feel. We will be back. My husband really liked the beer choices. We had the wings - if you like spicy, tell them to spice them up - we wish we would have (we were a nervous... More

We chose a table on the patio, under the stars and super harvest moon. The staff was attentive and friendly. The menu was broad with many choices. Many small plates and salads, two soups, plus sandwiches and "large plates" (entrees). We started with the 3-chili wings. They were meaty and tasty. I had the blackened fish po' boy and my... More

This was a spur of the moment visit but worked out really well. Considering it was late (after 10:00 pm) the server was very nice and in good spirits. Parts of this place can be noisy but we sat outside because I was expecting a call and it was really nice out there. We split a blackened salmon sandwich which... More

The food here is very good. There is an assortment of dishes to enjoy. The waite staff is a little slow sometimes but when you get the food, you'll really enjoy whatever choice you made. And grab a chocolate chip cookie on the way out. They are delicious.

My boyfriend and I ended up here while trying to find some late dinner around 9 or 10 pm in Evanston (partially due to tripadvisor and open table). It was one of the few places around that had food that late that seemed to have a unique menu / wasn't a chain, and simply put - we feel we made... More

I really liked their lite dinners. I had the salmon and it was not only tasty, but also a perfect size serving for a small or modest appetite. Service was excellent even though the place was very busy. Great selection of beers. Their signature dish, cheese fries, were OK, but nothing to rave about.

While this has a very nice environment (art work, bar separate, outdoor patio, the food just doesn't live up to the locale. There are much better food choices at similar price in Evanston. Nothing bad here, just not special!

If you like your food hot and your service attentive, then don't go here! We stopped here on a Friday evening on our way to the local theatre. About one quarter of the tables were empty, but the hostess had trouble finding one for us. We waiting 15 minutes before asking a server who's station we were at and we... More

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
