I always saw good reviews but was skeptical because it was in a hotel. Do not let that fool you. Great service. I was seated the minute we walked in on Valentine's day. My wife had the bass and I had the short rib. NO doggie bag. Desert was great as well. Todd do a great job not hurrying us but as soon as we were ready he took care of us. Farm to table and very good.

The food was outstanding. Everyone dish that my group had was top notch. This restaurant is competitive with the upscale restaurants in the West loop without the drive.

It was my wife and I’s first time there and overall it was OK. The food and the decor were very good but we were expecting it to be more of an upscale experience vs a family dinning place with nicer food. It was very loud and there seemed to be a lot of children running around. Not good for our “Date night”. Again, the food was very well prepared and the portions were right. The service was attentive. Just dont go there for a quiet dinner.

We really enjoyed Glen Prairie’s new Sunday brunch and Bloody Mary bar! The bar was nicely arranged with a great variety of condiments. The sausage cassoulet was excellent and a great addition to usual brunch entrees. Our server Edna was excellent and went out of her way to make us comfortable and meet all of dining needs. Nice touch was the manager checking in on our table. Great value for the price. Will definitely return for brunch again soon.

Took my adult daughters to lunch. We just love it there. Beautiful decor, great food and drinks and exceptional service. The only bad thing -they started the dishwasher behind the bar while we were dining and it was very very loud.

We went to Glen Prairie for their Middle Brow Beer dinner. Amazing meal. Exec Chef Mike Max did an amazing job creating dishes which were perfectly paired with great beers from up and coming Middle Brow Beer Co. Hope to see the short rib chili and shrimp and cheese grits on the menu. Outstanding!

First time dining and will definitely be back. Excellent service!! Doesn’t feel like a “hotel restaurant”. Most menu items can be prepared gluten free. Brussel sprout appetizer was delicious but a bit disappointing-mostly artichoke hearts and garlic with few pieces of brussel sprout. Tomato and French onion soups were awesome. Mac and cheese with pork bbq was amazing - GF, light sauce and GF pasta made this not as heavy as you would expect, and very enjoyable. Next time we’ll have to leave room for dessert - looking forward to it!

When i booked thru open table for a NYE dinner, nowhere did it say that there would be fixed-price menu - if i had known, i wouldn't have made a reservation. To be honest, they did let us know that was the case when we first checked in however being that late in the evening, we didn't have any other options.
Having said that, the food was good but they should have some vegetarian options and scallops doesn't cut it as a veg entree.

Will i go back? Probably to try what they would normally serve.

We went here for Christmas dinner. The food was wonderful and the ambience was very pleasant. They were running so far behind we didn’t get seated until almost an hour past our reservation time. Incredibly long service time and some meals can out cold. Unfortunately, we were so disappointed in the service even though the food was very good

This is one of our favorite restaurants - and a go-to for special occasions. They source much of their menu items from local farmers!
We were there this time on Christmas Day - unfortunately they were a little short-staffed - but the waitress we had (Edna) was very pleasant and thoughtful.
I highly recommend this restaurant for any meal, special occasion or holiday.

It took a half an hour to get the bread and water from the hostess after I complained. It took an hour to get our soft drinks. We were told they were short of staff. Our appetizer was delivered to the table next to us. I informed the waitress it was ours but she questioned us. My meal came with sautéed spinach but was delivered with green beans. Our meal was delivered an hour & a half after we arrived. I asked to speak with the manager. Half an hour later I asked the waitress again. She said the manager was too busy to come out of the kitchen. I had to ask another waitress. Two other tables received the same treatment as us. I will never go back.

Unexpected gem considering it is connected to a Holiday Inn. You can tell it is a restaurant that stands on its own. Server was very knowledgeable about all the GF, vegan and vegetarian options, though that wasn't the main reason we went. Simply good food in a really nice atmosphere. Skip the lamb skewers as an appetizer. Thought we were eating a chunk of gyros meat, not skewers of roast lamb.

My friends and I chose Glen Prairie because of its central location to where we were coming from, as well as the menu and photos posted online. Our experience surpassed our expectations. We enjoyed the warm, inviting, quiet atmosphere. We enjoyed a variety of beverages, from beer, to wine, to signature cocktails. Our dinner choices were also varied - flatbread, short ribs, and duck breast. Our server, Todd, was both attentive and accommodating. He gave us excellent recommendations based on our inclinations from the menu. He was also quite patient, being that we spent alot of time catching up with each other, before even opening our menus. We were thoroughly enjoyed our meals and look forward to returning!

We had not been to GP in several years, but had enjoyed it on cold nights in the past, and the hearty food was something we looked forward to. I have to say that except for the fried brussel sprout appetizer, we were a bit disappointed. My "stuffed Amish Chicken" special sounded wonderful in the description, but on presentation, it was rolled up white meat chicken, somewhat overdone and dry. My dining companions did not rave about their selections either. We did truly enjoy the wedge salads, which were nicely done, with just the right amount of bacon and dressing. Our expectations of the atmosphere were met, as we were able to enjoy a long, conversational meal with enough space around us not to feel cramped or crowded. As the evening wore on, however, the DJ music from the wedding in the hotel banquet area bled into our quiet night as the wedding guests filtered in and out of the bar.

My husband and I are regular patrons of Glenn Prairie because of their scrumptious food, ambiance and attention to detail. We have never been disappointed. The chef is accommodating to my vegetarian diet and the waitstaff is friendly and professional. I know many other people who love this gem also. I want to see them stay in business forever, but I don't want them to get so famous or trendy that we won't be able to get in without a reservation 6 mos in advance ;-)
