Suburban neighborhood restaurant

Prairie Grass is one of our go to places. Great for a Friday nite no cook nite or Sunnday brunch. The food is seasonal with great desserts. Good burgers as well.

Because of the way it is set in between office buildings, it's a little harder to find, but there is plenty of off-street parking. The interior is contemporary and has a nice ambiance. There are even smaller areas that can be closed off which is interesting. So, what was really good was the sirloin burger. Served without a bun, it... More

A fairly expensive restaurant but they have alot of grass fed beef. Food is excellent, especially the hamburger. It is a bit pricey.

I really liked the interior decor of this place. Apart from the prairie grass (nice touch by the way), it is fairly nondescript outside. But inside, it was very appealing. Lots of wood and a stone fireplace. Flatscreens with nature scenes, and high ceilings. There is a bar up front. They have a seating area for large groups that allows... More

Service positively excellent Waiters extremely efficient. They were there picking up and cleaning the table and filling the water every chance they got. We had to ask for very little. Food -yummy - very different- Help very willing to divide salad and dessert that we shared.

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
