Prairie Moon is always a good place to have lunch or dinner. Their menu has a wide variety of interesting items, always tasty. Atmosphere is not fancy but waitstaff is attentive and helpful.

Prairie Moon was my favorite place to eat when I used to live in Evanston. I just visited over the weekend and was so happy to be back there! The food is carefully prepared and is very flavorful. The environment is laid-back, casual and cool. Great beer selection too! I miss having this place as a go-to but excited to... More

We go here at least once every other month or so, all year long. Always good food, nice atmosphere where one CAN have a good conversation with friends (i.e., it isn't too noisy). The back two dining areas are nice, and the outdoor patio is a great option when weather permits. I often get the Ciderday Salmon small plate --... More

This is one of our regular favorite spots. The service is always terrific, the outdoor patio is partially enclosed so it's usable even during chillier nights. The partial enclosure gives the patio an intimate vibe. The menu has many choices and we have not found anything we didn't like. Recommend for date nights & evenings out with friends.

Pretty lifeless place, catering well to the student populations and lovers of wheat beer and the like. They do OK food, too,, but it's just one more bar on the strip.

We had a group of 13 and our server was fantastic. The wait for our food was not very long considering the size of our group. Everyone ordered something different and all meals had good reviews. I had the Black bean burger and sweet potato fries which were amazing. There were many different types of menu items that fit into... More

We met friends here before my college reunion started up. It filled the bill for a casual venue that won't break the piggie bank. Bigger than it looks, and dining areas are separated from noisier bar areas, so we could talk. Juicy flavorful hamburger with some of the tastiest sweet potato fries I've had, and good craft beer selection. We... More

Nice restaurant with a variety of food. Great waitress service and bartender. A very private cozy patio is a wonderful place to go in the summer.

Prairie Moon has an eclectic menu emphasizing American and Mid-west table. Just good food at reasonable prices. The front bar area tends to be noisy but the dining rooms beyond the bar are quite conversation friendly. Good wait staff. Impressive beer and wine lists.

We had an early dinner here, ca 5.30pm. It was crowded in the patio so we had a place in the dining area. Quiet and nice. We ordered small plates, hubby had the Ciderday Salmon, consisted of mashed potatoes infused in horseradish and two small slices of baked salmon. It was good and tasty according to him. I had the...
