There were rotating monthly Tuesday menu specials - most... More

The food here is superb no doubt! The service needs improvement in the lounge side. Two of us sat in the lounge side prepared to order food, and after not even being acknowledged for 15", we left went elsewhere. We have experienced slow service there often (lounge side). The food there is worth the wait, if you have time to... More

My wife and I went for happy hour in the bar. $2 off martinis and great flat breads. We ordered the build your own brushetta and pepperoni and sausage flatbread. Both were yummy. The service was great and we had a lot of fun meeting new people while at the bar. Good eating!

A nice variety from pizza to delicious main dishes. Not your ordinary fare. The chef has wonderful combinations. The Build Your Own Bruchetta is great. You can order pizzas in the bar area also

Prairie Bay used to be outstanding. The food & very poor service have us choosing more desirable places to dine.

Travel to Brainerd area for business every 5-6 weeks. During each stay I make it a point to dine at Prairie Bay. Would strongly recommend. Quality food, excellent customer service and great prices all lend itself to a great dining experience. Would highly recommend the Flat bread pizza with fig/grape and gouda. EXCELLENT!
