Wonderful Dinner and Atmosphere

My friend and I enjoyed an excellent meal here this past Friday. The waitstaff were friendly, professional, and well versed with the menu. Our food arrived hot, fresh, and promptly. I will dine here again next month when back in town for business.

We were lucky to have an opportunity to dine at Glen Prairie Restaurant recently. We have dined there at least a half dozen times since it opened with the remodeling of the Crown Plaza where it is housed. We had been so impressed previously that we bought gift cards to Glen Prairie as treats to friends and relatives! This restaurant... More

The food at this place was fantastic. Just as good as the food was the service. The mac n cheese is to die for. Most if their menu is gluten free and everything is from local vendors and farm raised products.

I've been going here for years when I want a really good quality meal and don't want to cook. The food never disappoints! The menu is varied enough you can always find a new favorite or stick with your old favorite...although food is seasonal. Very good staff...friendly, knowledgeable about food and wine! I only hope it never gets too crowded... More

Our waitress, Bre'ana, was the best! She was very personable! We had the "Duck Breast" which was absolutely delicious and makes my mouth water just thinking about it right now! For dessert, I highly recommend the Creme Brulee!

This restaurant is adjacent to the Crowne Plaza Glen Ellyn Hotel and is hidden by the much larger hotel. They serve American Contemporary Cuisine and focus on locally sourced food as much as possible. We’ve dined here several times and have not been disappointed. The menu specials changes with regularity. We’ve eaten the Iowa Black Angus Rib-eye, Braised Short Ribs,... More

Good food but smallish portions, and they don't even give you a little bread as a starter. Also, the open space isn't conversation-friendly. There are better choices in downtown Glen Ellyn.

We've eaten several times at Glen Prairie and have never been disappointed. The menu includes a variety of dishes made with meat and poultry sourced locally, but if you're looking for lighter fare, you can find that too. My favorites are the salads made with interesting combinations, such as kale, goat cheese and berries, to which you can add grilled... More
