Prairie Grass Cafe is NOT an average restaurant. The owners/chefs previously worked at the high end Ritz Carlton dining room in Chicago. They bring their talent and innovative food creations to their Northbrook, Illinois restaurant. The menu features creative dishes you will not find at other restaurants. An example from the dinner menu is the coconut salad that also includes... More

Service was impeccable, the drinks were good, the dinner wonderful. I had a marinated skirt steak and twice baked potato. Nothing was left on my plate. My wife and our friends... More

A popular unpretentious restaurant. Tasty food. My jambalaya was delicious. A little noisy but fun in a friendly atmosphere.

We really like this restaurant - a higher caliber menu emphasizing local ingredients but has a relaxed, family atmosphere. The staff is pleasant and the food delish. Granted, one of the children ( in our group (who does not behave well in restaurants) was perfectly content with whatever game was showing on the bar TVs...and staff pretty much left him... More

This restaurant has gradually declined. The service is pretty bad and they can be kinda pushy. They take forever to get your food and the food makes half of the family sick. Honestly you don't need to visit this restaurant.
