When you first pull up the outside of the restaurant is so cute! Flowers and love the color of the building. Upon entering you are greeted and seated. The menu has a great variation of dishes. A must is their corn fritters with honey butter to start your meal! Our food was excellent and the server was great! Will definitely... More

We like to go here on a regular basis. It's not fancy but works as an everyday kind of place. The skirt steak is perfection, the chicken is great along with the fish. For lunch I like to order the chopped salad with feta cheese. Monday night is free corkage and Wednesday night is burger night.

Prairie Grass has a couple of dishes I yearn for when we are in Florida [our Summer home]. First is their chicken and second is their white fish. Everything else is good too. The last time we were there a couple of weeks ago the chef seemed to have had a heavy hand with the salt. When asked how everything... More

To begin with if you are fortunate to have Lucia for a server, you'll have a great dining experience. Such a personable, helpful, friendly, and delightful server. Following an awesome l morning at the Chicago Botanical Gardens we came here and enjoyed our lunch immensely. We enjoyed finding old favorites such as egg salad and tuna patty melts on the... More

We were a group of 5 arriving after a long and varied day. Several wanted only and appetizer while others opted for a full entre. The menu choices were wide-ranging and excellent. The servers were attentive but not intrusive and the food was delicious.

Had seen many positive reviews over the years and decided to eat there on Father's Day. The food was very good but not great. I was a little surprised at the Greek influence. To try something different, my wife had the moussaka and I had the homemade lamb sausages. The moussaka was made with braised (rather than ground) lamb which... More

We met a large group of family members here for brunch. They put several tables together to accommodate us. The food was delicious and the service was good. Everyone liked their meal. We especially enjoyed the lemon ricotta pancakes!!! (Must try!) Even through we were a large group, the food all came out at about the same time.

Long-time Northbrook restaurant has a an excellent menu and terrific execution. Great service and desserts. It's not cheap but the value for what you get is fine.

I have frequented Prairie Grass since it opened its doors. It is one of my favorite brunch places. I had dinner with a friend, and although the service was impeccable as always, my food was fair. I had crab cakes that were more cake than crab, and the sauce was a mayonaise, that was flavorless and fair. The seasonal salad... More

Quite noisy. Food good. Service excellent. A bit over-priced for the quality and quantity of the food.
