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.

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!

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.
