Our group of five enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch at Prairie Grass Cafe before a matinee performance at Northlight Theater in Skokie (less than 15 mins away). We all enjoyed the signature Eggs Benedict dish, made with bacon crumbles and a roasted tomato hollandaise sauce. Blood Marys were very good, and the shared coffee cake was delectable. I really appreciated... More

The food we recently had here was good, just nothing really special. I had the burger with blue cheese, no bun, tomato and onion. My husband had the white fish and a salad. They had lots of options on the menu so maybe one of them was something write home about.

I have had numerous business lunches at Prairie Grass, and while the noise level is a deterrent the service is uniformly great and the food is uniformly good (not amazing). We will continue to use this establishment for future lunches without hesitation.

There is something comfortable with a hamburger. The quality of the meat and the variety of toppings make this an easy place to frequent. Service like the food is consistent and you know what the experience will be before you arrive. Dinner with the crispy half duck is quite satisfying and the brussel sprouts are yum.

This was a Saturday night, after a movie -- table for 6. Service : Excellent Menu: Wide choice to suit all tastes Ambiance: Bit on the "loud" side but manageable All 6 people agreed that their meals were good (seafood and steaks ordered). I had the strip-steak medium rare. Served hot, and cooked to perfection. Really good choice for $27.00... More

My Guinness was very good - at a fair price - and it's downhill from there. The bread served us was dry and the bottom was inedible - c'mon folks, this is simple - put out fresh bread! The appetizers weren't much to talk about except they were pricey.... Our server wasn't great either - probably didn't help but the... More
