This is NOT hotel food. This is dining. Chef seems to take great care with his menu. Always had a terrific dining experience when there. The Lake Superior White fish is a favorite and the mac n cheese will rejuvenate you!

We were pleasantly surprised when we were so promptly seated. The menu was extensive, accommodating to almost every food preference. The server was attentive and very willing to discuss the ingredients of each dish. The salmon Benedict was great. They have kind of a health food type theme but nothing weird. We would return to this restaurant.

We really like Glen Prairie. He food is great, many options for different diets, kids, grouchy parents... We go every other month or so. Our only complaint is the service. It is so spotty. We will get half the entrees and the rest 5-10 min later. Or we get stuck waiting for a forgotten dessert or the check.

We have lived in Glen Ellyn for many years and have only recently discovered Glen Prarie. The food is very good, and the server was excellent. I don't remember name, but her personality is magnetic. She makes you happy you came.

Love this restaurant! Have never been disappointed here, food or service! Have eaten lunch numerous times and dinner even more times. Love the menu, has wonderful options for those eating gluten free as well as for those who are not limited to that. Their mac and cheese is the very best I have had ever, dining out. Shrimp and grits,... More

I took a customer here for a lunch and had a great meal. I suggest the shrimp & grits appetizer and the duck tacos. I went again later in the week for a dinner an had the beef carpaccio appetizer and bison chili for my entree. I will definitely come back again.

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.
