Since breakfast was not included with our hotel room, we ate here for convenience one morning. We both had pancakes which were good. We were the only two people in there at the time and along with pancakes we ordered two juices and a glass of milk. They brought the pancakes but no juice. The young man, not our waiter,... More

I met a friend with 2 young children at Glen Prairie for breakfast. We chose it because it serves organic eggs. The food quality and service were very good. It can be a noisy venue or very quiet depending on the clientele at the time. The staff was not flustered by the children and remained attentive. I do not eat... More

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!

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
