Dinner at hotel

Pleasant surprise. The food is fresh and local when available. The device was good as well. I had calamari as an appetizer, it was cooked perfectly, a fresh local spinach salad, absolutely great and the halibut special, small, but very good. I would recommend by his place to anyone.

Stayed here for the week. On Monday, I ordered lunch at the bar to save some time. The staff seemed to be in training or just not caring. I ordered a salad and I had to ask for silverware since there was none at the bar. I has handed two forks and one knife. The waiter quickly walked off without... More

I have dined here many times with my family. The food is fresh and usually well prepared. The extremely slow service and unattentive servers distracted from our food or lack their of. "What taking so long" took 5 minutes. Then told it would be right out, meant 25 minutes. I have never left in under one hour and that's for... More

I have driven by Glen Prairie multiple times and never considered eating here, I mean, come on, who eats at a hotel restaurant??!! I dined here with my wife, two children, and my in laws. It was a Saturday night and we couldn't get a reservation anywhere else so we decided on Glen Prairie. Boy oh boy did we ever... More

We had dinner and breakfast here while staying in the hotel. Both experiences were terrific. The menu was simple but met our needs, and the food was delicious. Best of all, the service was prompt and friendly. We were in a rush to get to O'Hare, and the breakfast staff person found "to go" boxes for us, which I really... More

Clean atmosphere although through the odd colored glasses might lend itself to be to bathroom-ish. But I like it. Simple. The service staff was amazing. Kathleen (server) and the server assistant ( did not get his name) were quick, very pleasant, accommodating and foresaw our needs. Employers should be so lucky to have these two in their employ. The kitchen... More

Glen Prairie is a nice restaurant and offers satisfactory food, but the atmosphere is to cold and sterile for my taste.

We go to lunch here quite often, so often that I have memorized the menu. I love all the soups that they make and the salads and sandwiches are never a disappointment. The price range for lunch and the specials they offer are a very good value. The fireplace, bar area, all make for a comfortable setting especially if you've... More

I've been to Glen Prairie many times, for special occasions and for a casual lunch with friends. It never disappoints. The food is locally sourced in many cases and is always top quality. The room has a contemporary, but warm feel. You would never guess that the restaurant is attached to a suburban hotel. All hotels should be so lucky!... More
