By chance, happen to find this gem. It is off the main service road and tuck back behind another business. But the food was amazing. Everything is made fresh to order, so expect to wait a bit for your meal. My husband and I shared two meals (one pasta and one sandwich) and they were both amazing. I wanted to... More

I thought the food was delicious. Very interesting combinations. Great variety and fresh ingredients. I also thought the price was reasonable. Bruchetta plate was delicious.

The appetizers were the best part of the meal, they were amazing! We had the Ahi Tuna Taco Crisp and the Lobster Salad Tostadas. If I had it to do over again, we would just add a couple more apps and call it dinner, they were that good. Dinner was average. The "Mad Thai" was not as good as a... More

Went with a group for dinner. Slow service, lousy good. Had the Greek Lasagna, tested like burned cheese. Beet salad was ordinary, had a few small beets, a little cheese, not very tasty. Maybe we all ordered poorly but no one's dinner was any good. Also, slow service. Can't recommend this place.

At first the Praire Bay Grill does not look like much, more or less like any chain restaurant, but be ready to be surprised. I am gluten-intolerant, and so finding restaurants with more than 2 or 3 items that are safe for me to eat can be a challenge, especially in more rural areas of the country with limited dining...

We had a fantastic experience at Prairie Bay! The bartender/waiter was a very happy and attentive guy that anyone would like. The veggies were crisp and meat fresh. They use fresh herbs right from their garden in ways that tantalize the tongue. Loved our visit at this place!

We regularly visit this restaurant because we get great service from our favorite waitress Rachel and the food is both tasty and beautiful.

One of Baxter's best restaurant. Nearly everything is fresh made to order. Menu changes seasonally. Not a chain. A local full service restaurant.
