Glen Prairie is attached to the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The food quality was high, as was the bartending quality. There were few vegetarian options, and no vegan options. Since this is in the Midwest, that's not too surprising, but it would still be nice to have more than just one pasta dish. Portion sizes were generous. I'd recommend it particularly... More

This tucked away restaurant has an excellent and varied menu, from the starters through the main course, using locally grown ingredients. The beer, wine and cocktails selection were surprisingly broad. The prices were very reasonable. The service was a bit unsteady. Getting a reservation on a Saturday night was easy. This is definitely a great option in the Western Suburbs.

Just wonderful! Shrimp and Grits app was delightful. Pork Tenderloin and sweets was outstanding and side of mac and chse topped with buttery crackers was decadent. Burger on Brioche was an American Classic. Even the mini dessert collection was terrific! Love that we found this place!

Wine choices were good and thoughtfully chosen. My husband had fish which was delicious and our gf freind had excellent pork. My friend and I had pastas which were very... More

Located next to the crowne plaza hotel, this restaurant shines! Great customer service, ask for "Kat". The menu is eclectic and tasteful. I chose the shrimp and grits as an appetizer, the bison with whipped sweet potatoes and asparagus. And the mini portions are just right for those that need sweet but not an overload. The bar service was busy... More

It is hard to find a consistent good meal along with service in Glen Ellyn! But this place always delivers. From Jaclyn, the hostess, to Alex, the bartender, this place not only delivers a quality meal but great service to go with it, from the time you enter the door(Jaclyn) to the service at time of the meal. Keep up... More

Enjoyed grass fed beef steak and fine wine. Cozy and inviting atmosphere. A nice place to enjoy with somebody special, or friends.

The food tends to be very good and relatively creative. However, I never been impressed with the service. Meals often come out and you can tell they've been sitting under a hot lamp as the plate is burning hot. All in all, good food compare to the other options in Glen Ellyn but not on my list of places to... More

Wonderful flavours and options. We tried several appetizers and loved the stuffed mushrooms. The pulled pork mac n' cheese made me wish I had a microwave in the hotel for the leftovers!

I wasn't super hungry so I order the hummus appetizer as a carry out. It was $8, but a ton of food. Super, duper yummy. Lots of pita bread and fresh, crunchy veggies. It made for a perfect meal. The hotel is attached to the Crowne Plaza hotel. I decided to call and order, then walk down to get the... More
