  • "Not notable enough to write anything other than whatever. Kind if a so-so experience."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We had a great experience as we bid farewell to a co-worker. The service was great, the food was good and plentiful. We all enjoyed the beverage selection, especially the beer selection. This was the second time we came to lunch as a staff and we enjoyed it both times."

  • "4 adults went to dinner. Three of the four ordered different items on the menu. The only winner was the burger. The pork sandwiches were terrible. Tasted like leftover pork from a week ago. The beef wasn't any better. Stale bread too. The French fries had so much salt on them that we didn't eat them. Very disappointing experience overall. We were all looking forward to trying a new place in Eden Prairie. We will not be back. So sorry.....for you and for us."

  • "Six met for brunch. We loved the diverse and unique menu with all the same price. All were able to find something fun to eat. Everyone loved their food and all exressed the desire to go back for lunch and dinner! We sat inside but the outside seating looks great!"

  • "It was suppose to be a special night for my daughter. Didn't end up that way. Had an issue, asked to speak to the manager and he told the server that he was not coming over to our table. Pretty rude and very unprofessional! Go spend your money somewhere else, people!!"

  • "We've been to PTH a couple times now and the food doesn't disappoint. Their pit sandwiches are filling and flavorful and the prices for everything is reasonable. They also have a great happy hour and a good value kid's menu. We have brought our son with us both times, and never felt like he didn't belong."

  • "Dined on THUR night at 6:30pm in celebration of my daughter's 17th birthday. Lots of things done right. My wife and kids were running approx. 10 minutes late and you kept our reservation. Positive. You brought out a "monster" piece of chocolate birthday cake that was incredibly delicious. Major positive :) Thanks again for making my daughter's birthday dinner memorable."

  • "The service we had was not good, we were there early for HH and dinner, there were not many people there. We didn't receive our appetizers that we ordered, I asked about them when our dinner was brought out and he seemed annoyed that I asked and asked if I still wanted them. We did want one of them. I asked for a side of ranch for my meal - three times. I finally had to go in the restaurant to get it, as I was walking to the bar he came out with it in his hand and gave me a dirty look and said looking for something. Oh well, I guess you could of used the extra exercise - what does that mean??? Then he says I get enough walking back and forth all the time. WHAT - that is your job! Very appalling."

  • "When we arrived to the restaurant it took too long for us to be seated. The waitress took to long to take our order. It was our first time there, would not recommend, will not visit again."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Not super busy and very wide variety on menu. Great service and enjoyed the variety of beer available. I had lobster gnocchi and it had a flavorable sauces listed but did fall flat on flavor. Has a lot of potential to be a great place. It was good overall and I would recommend it again."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time! The hostess greeted us right away and acknowledged it was our anniversary. Shane was an awesome server; knowledgable and attentive. Every item we ordered, Scotch Eggs, Beef Ribs, Shells and Cheese, Walleye Fingers, Horseradish Mashers and Ice Cream Sandwich, was amazing! Would definitely go back as the whole menu looked yummy and it was fun trying to decide what to taste. Many more decisions for future visits!!"

  • "This was a TGIF in an earlier life. We thought the food was freshly prepared and the server was friendly and helpful. Unlike many places in this area, they stay open late which is great when you need a late nite place for food. But we didn't find the food that great tasting. The lobster rolls ( like egg rolls ) were $13.95 for two smallish rolls without much flavor. The peel and eat shrimp were a good sized portion, but the flavor was not great, rather dusty. The pit meat sandwiches were large with hot fries, but again the flavor was just ok. We may come back if we had to eat late nite, but otherwise, no."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I went to Prairie Tap House with friends and family after a movie. The waiter was inattentive (the bus boy was much more helpful!) and the food was fair. After placing our order, we didn't see the waiter again until after the food was brought out. By then, 3 of us wanted to order another drink (beer and wine, not free soda refills), and we couldn't get him to take the order. When he finally got the other orders and delivered the second round of drinks, he refused to take the empty glasses, which we asked him to do because the table was full. Everyone at our table agreed that the food was nothing to write home about and we were disappointed with the service."

  • "We went for the brunch on Sunday and I was NOT impressed. My sister go the biscuits and gravy dish and when she got it one of the biscuits was so hard she couldn't even cut it with a knife!! How old was this thing - gross!! The server did get her a whole new plate with softer biscuits, but the dish itself was only so-so. I got the breakfast hash and it was not good. The meat was tough and had grizzle in it so it wasn't tender and flavorful at all. The only good thing we had was the huge pecan caramel sticky bun. That was AMAZING!!! The service was ok, but it wasn't great. I had a Groupon for this place, which is why I thought it would be fun to give it a try, but I will not be returning."

  • "Typical bar for mall location. Lots of beers to chose from both bottles and on tap. Music was very loud - could not converse with others at end of table. Crowd was more "bar group" than for dinner. Server was excellent. Food average for a bar, good selection of pork sandwiches. We had 3 kids with us, was not a great location for a family style dinner. Would return to try again for lunch or happy hour with friends, not dinner."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Nothing ended up being good with our experience here. Long wait for service. Food overcooked and tasted very poor. 4 of us in party and not one of us liked what we ordered - all different items. Had to wait too long for everything - appetizer, wine, entree. Hope they can fix these things. Location good, but poor everything else!"

  • "This was our first visit to the Prairie Tap House. Relaxed atmosphere, and a nice selection of menu choices. Definitely a place for the carnivore, but there were plenty of other options as well. We will definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The inside of the restaurant is nicely decorated. We were sat in a room that was a SUPER warm. Too warm. The food was NOT good AT ALL! We ordered our burgers medium and the came well done and as dry as a hockey puck. My husband ordered a sunny side egg on top of his. Nothing was sunny side up about it. The yoke was not runny and was like a hard boiled egg. The server was introverted and not helpful ay all. She was very timid. Over all we will not go back. We won't recommend it to our worst enemy and doubt it will last."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We ate at the bar around 9:00 pm on a Friday. There was a moderate size crowd, and the ambiance was trendy and urban. Some of the food around us looked amazing as we pondered our decision. The veggie burger was AMAZING, but the chicken sandwich was less than delightful. It was a bit dry and bland. They had a great beer selection; however, it took 15 minutes before the bartender was able to peel himself away from chatting and serving a particular crowd to take care of us. We would definitely give it another chance because there was enough hope to expect better the second round."

  • "My sisters and I meet every two weeks or so and decided to try this place. A wonderful surprise. The onion rings are awesome and the blue cheese burger was very tasty. Our server was very attentive. We would definitely go back and would recommend it to others."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We looked forward to dining here after seeing the menu online. I would say the food was ok but nothing special. (Or anything I would hurry back for). The hostess was overwhelmed and by herself when we got there (and on the phone taking a customer order over the phone). I got the Chopped salad - it had way too much dressing and all I could taste was that dressing for the rest of the night."

  • "We had a gracious and fun server- he took great care of us and had a great sense of humor!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Very interesting combinations of flavors on the pit BBQ sandwiches. Definitely recommend the Buffalo Bleu sandwich and Cuban pork. The sandwiches were huge! Craft beer choices was great and we all enjoyed different flights. The wait staff was very knowledgeable about the different beers. The restaurant faces west and was uncomfortably warm near the front windows, but the staff moved us to a cooler location very quickly when asked. We would definitely go back again!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The tables along the center wall are too open as it is the corridor for the wait staff as well as patrons. Booths would give a more private space. The décor is lacking, after visiting the web site I was expecting completely different. Perhaps a different type of lighting would give a better ambiance."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Amazing food and great beer selection! Loved the local choices. The only complaint is that the restaurant wasn't too crowded when we were there yet they sat another family right next to us. There was definitely room to spread out but they had everyone in one area."

  • "I booked a reservation for Father's Day and could not have been more disappointed with the experience. The hostess put us at a table next to a window which was uncomfortably warm. We were waiting for the hostess to return with a high chair for our little one but she disappeared so we didn't know who to ask about moving tables. It took 15 minutes to track someone down to move. Another 10 for a table to be ready (the restaurant was 1/3 full with plenty of open tables). 45 minutes after we arrived we were greater by our waitress (although very nice) who took our drink order. 10 minutes later the drinks arrived but waitress disappeared. The service never improved and i would have walked out if not for a groupon. Really disappointed."

  • "We were very disappointed with our brunch experience. It took over an hour to get our meals, and the server didn't give us any explanation, she barely came around to check on us. When we did get our meals, the hash browns were cold and the eggs were not cooked as ordered, but our server didn't come back to check on us, so we couldn't get it corrected. It didn't appear they were that busy. So I am not sure what the issue was. We have been there once before for brunch, and the food came out quickly within 15 minutes and our service was very good, so I am hoping that this was just a really bad day for the restaurant."

  • "Took our 2 YO with us to dinner -- the scene was loud enough that he could talk and sing and not bother anyone, which we always appreciate! The menu had tons of options... we figured since you can't get pit sandwiches at many local restaurants, we better try them! I had the buffalo pork and my husband had the hot Italian. We both LOVED them. Even though we were stuffed, we split the ice cream sandwich for dessert, and it didn't disappoint. I was pleasantly surprised how inexpensive our bill was (Happy Hour goes till 7 PM), too. My only slight complaint is we had to wait for our server and were greeted by the manager in the meantime... it didn't seem busy enough that we should have had to wait -- but otherwise service was "ok"."

  • "Good spot, had the signature Pit Beef and the Italian Beef both very good - Hand cut fries were great. Salad was a little disappointing with shredded lettuce and rather bland Ranch dressing considering the aggressive seasoning on just about everything. We had a scotch egg for an appy and it was good with very spicy sausage casing. Overall good food, rather bland but refreshingly quiet atmosphere."
