Prairie Grass Restaurant is one of the best restaurants in our area! All of the offerings are great but last night we enjoyed the "Shepard's Pie"---the most delicious version I have ever eaten. The taste was out of this world---a comfort food that was much more than a comfort! This restaurant is a cozy, comfortable spot but reservations are definitely... More

I've been wanting to try this place since owner and chef Sarah Stegner left downtown Chicago ritz. So NOT disappointed. The venue was bigger and less "cozy" then I expected. But all the oieces of the decor, from art to menu design, fit the place perfectly. Food was good solid, nothing furfural and foamy. The mashed potatoes were incredible, the... More

I went here with a co-worker. No sooner did we sit down, we ordered and were served. It was like an express dinner, in and out in 1 hour. In this case, it was enough time, we covered what we needed to during time well spent. Overall the food was good and price was right.

I visited this restaurant a bit back and gave it a so so review. Anyways, our family including relatives visited for a third time (over the years) for our Thanksgiving meal. It was, for the third time, the best thanksgiving meal I have ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant for Thanksgiving, it will be better than anything most people... More

Had a lovely dinner with my husband and two business associates. We had a wonderful meal. For appetizers we had the scallops which were served with grapefruit sections and avocado. We also had spring rolls and crab cakes. The crab cakes were delicious with a light coating. For dinner I had the filet of beef. It was done perfectly and... More

I have an office not too far away. I come to Prairie Grass about once a month for a business lunch. Go early because it gets packed during the week. The steak salad and the burger are incredible.

Enjoyed a leisure evening of good food, drink and friends. Service was excellent. Slightly noisy, but then aren't most restaurants today.

Stopped by in this busy little spot for lunch. Had a great grilled chicken salad. Good atmosphere, busy lunch location with mainly business folk.

Went to brunch on Saturday. Ordered the skirt steak. You needed to be a pit bull to chew it and it was cooked medium-well instead of medium-rare. Daughters macaroni looked/tasted like the stuff you buy in a box. The chicken cutlet has some messy looking topping on it that was just marginal. Plus, their service is horrible. I particularly do...

We haven’t tasted such pure food since we visited Vermont last year. Furthermore, my husband’s potato soup was light and fresh, as was my beet-pear-chèvre-hazelnut salad. He marveled that his fish tasted fresh-caught, a happy surprise in fish and chips. The fried tempura batter was perfect. He loved his apple slaw. My crispy half duck was nicely done, and the...
