WIN for Late Night

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!

Our first choice restaurant/bar in the area wasn't open until 3 pm so we wandered a little bit and went into Prairie Moon. Although there were two tables with customers besides us and at one of those tables, the patron was drinking water and reading a book, it took a little while to see our server. While looking over our... More

We love this restaurant and eat there often. I am a vegetarian and my wife is not; the menu at Prairie Moon has great options for both of us. I highly recommend the Painted Soup. My office also held a dinner party here and the entire staff enjoyed themselves!

Prairie Moon is sort of off the beaten path but well worth seeking. It's a large and interesting place that has a great assortment of fries (I LOVE fries!) and main dishes for every palate. The only disappointment was the fries were only warm, not hot like the rest of the food. I had the roasted vegetable salad. Delicious! It... More

We got in late and were staying right across the street, and a 10pm meal needed to be cheap and close. We got all that, and amazingly delicious with Prairie Moon. Pulled pork sandwich, veggie burger and cheeseburger were all perfect, served quickly and with great service. Can't wait to go there again.

I have dined at Prairie Moon on numerous occasions. Quite simply, it has some of the finest pub-style cuisine I have had. Great burgers, sandwiches, salads, soups. Terrific beer selection. I would highly recommend the blackened chicken po' boy (fantastic remoulade!), the fish tacos, and the Dark Side of the Moon Burger. Great fries!!! Nice atmosphere, highly recommended.

We went at my daughter's suggestion as a place that might be quiet enough to carry on a conversation. We sat in the back, when it was unusually empty, and had a very nice meal with little noise. The tables are spaced nicely, and with very high ceilings, noise was not an issue. The menu is very interesting, with everything... More

Searching for a late night place to get something to eat at 11 p.m. is a challenge in a college town like Evanston. I had eaten lunch many times at Prairie Moon and we found it open and the late night menu very satisfying. Had salmon over mashed potatoes, a friend had the chicken wings - a large pile considering... More

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
