“What a pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

After a recommendation of friends, I stopped in this place last Saturday morning only to be pleasantly greeted by a young lady named Jaclyn who promptly and politely seated me. I enjoyed a good breakfast and my waitress(can't remember her name) was polite and prompt. The waffle and vanilla infused butter was delicious.
After reviewing the lunch and dinner menu I returned for the best burger I have had in a long time. So for a convenient, great, reasonably priced meal take the time to find this place(Crown Plaza Hotel, Lombard) and you won't be disappointed!

“Very good food, many servers, confusing service”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

I ate dinner at Glen Prairie while on business and staying at the Crowne Plaza hotel. The food was very good, nice selection of wine and drinks. The service was confusing - many people were waiting on me - as many as 4 or 5, but the waiter was hard to get a hold of. I ate my food before she even realized it... Seemed like they were in a hurry to get me out of there.

“Good food; slow service, and a bit noisy”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We have come back to this restaurant several time because of the food. It is consistently really good. Unfortunately, no matter the time of day, or day of week, service lags and even though the servers are pleasant, they are slow. There are lags when no one is in the restaurant, and lags when it is full. Doesn't seem to make any difference.
The noise level is not great for conversation.
Very beautiful atmosphere, and good food, if you can tolerate the slow service and noise level

“Great food; but not conversation friendly except in one area.”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

The food and service was superior. Everyone liked what they ordered. Server was very good. The bar intrudes into the main dinning area which means after 6pm the place is noisy and they turn up the PA music to loud to compete with the shouting guests. However, there is a wing away from the main dinning area that is not served by the blaring PA system and is available for seating "when they are busy". This area is excellent for conversation. Be sure to go to the "overflow area" is you want to converse easily.

“Good food in contemporary setting”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We have had brunch a couple of times and dinner once at Glen Prairie and have been pleased with our food every time. Service has consistently been pleasant and prompt. The restaurant is open, airy, and lit by a wall of windows looking south out over the parking lot onto Roosevelt Road. There is a large bar, lots of tables and numerous booths along the wall. We were a large group during one brunch and the staff had lined up several tables to accommodate us. The decor is that of earth colors, stone, and wood both light and dark. The menu is mostly American and includes the gamut of proteins from fish, fowl, pork, and beef. The restaurant makes a point of featuring local ingredients but even though the menu naturally features grain starches there are many gluten-free options. This made it easy for one of our friends who was gluten-intolerant to dine at Glen Prairie.
