Almost every item could be made gluten free (important to 1 of us). Server even ran over to our table after the roasted brussels sprouts were served to inform us this was not truly gluten free (fried in different oil) so our friend wouldn't eat by mistake. She was genuinely concerned. Large portions.

This is one of our favorite spots. They source locally and have really creative dishes. Their sazerac is the best I’ve had outside of NoLa. The kids love it. It’s a great spot for a date, family dinner or celebration. Love Glen Prairie!

I had driven by this place many times. It was not until a foodie friend recommended I stop and try it that I experienced this neighborhood gem. I have been back many times. The food is a wonderful farm to table concept beautifully and deliciously interpreted. It is served in a casual atmosphere by a very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

This is really two restaurants. There is the main section by the bar and then there is a row of table by the door and hall to hotel. If you are seated in the "back 40" you are in a different restaurant. The decor, ambiance is bland. You feel like an outsider. The bar section looked much more fun, nice decor, style. We were seated in the "back 40" and it ruined the occasion. The food was good and service was good, but the seating area ruined the night. I don' t know why this area exists or why they don't put some effort into making the area look good.

Great food at a great value. We went for a birthday but would go back for date night. My husband liked the espresso martini. I could see myself craving the Mac and cheese topped w pulled pork. Our daughter loved the salmon. The waitress was helpful and friendly. The hostess was very nice and accommodating. What more can you ask for? And we didn’t have to drive to Chicago or pay ridiculous prices.

Very average food in a very pedestrian atmosphere. It's a hotel restaurant and shouldn't try to be anything else. Too many other great restaurants in the area to waste time at this one.

The only serious problem-- and it was a serious problem-- was the noise level which made conversation between the two of us facing one another almost impossible. This was our second time at this restaurant. The experience the first time was sufficiently pleasing that we returned again. Our first visit was on a week night dinner occasion and the restaurant had only a few filled tables and the service was extraordinary. This current visit was on a Saturday night and there was a wait for tables.

We enjoyed our meals and when we return it will not be on a weekend evening and I would caution friends to do the same.

Maybe an off night. Bartender was friendly but our server was either lost or off a little bit---
dinner was out of sinc-forgot our salads and the entries came almost immediately following
my inquiring about the salad. We'll give it a couple of months and maybe try again.

We have eaten at Glen Prairie many times and have always had good food and service -- so we decided to have Easter Brunch here. Of course they were very busy. Service was quite good -- but the buffet brunch was a disappointment, especially for the price. No beverages are included, food is just average, carved roast beef was VERY rare -- under-seasoned and tough. Enjoyed the cooked-to-order omelettes.

This was a first time visit for some people in the party and everyone enjoyed their meals. It is always nice go go to a restaurant that makes it a commitment to use fresh local products where/when possible. We had the stuffed mushrooms and flatbread for appetizers and both were excellent. Around the table we had the skirt steak meal, shepherd's pie, Amish chicken, curried chicken with rice and pork tenderloin. Everything was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Did not feel rushed at all even though it was a Sat. evening. Will definitely keep Glen Prairie on our list of special places to go when we want an excellent meal.

Glen Prairie was a great choice for a family birthday dinner. The atmosphere was nice, and our server Ella was very friendly and helpful. Everyone loved their meals - especially the mac and cheese, the salads and the black bean quinoa burger. The restaurant uses local ingredients when possible, and the menu is very creative and healthy. There was also a very good wine and cocktail list. Highly recommended!

Will not return - experience was Harmful to my heart/overall health
For a restaurant that takes pride in locally sourced food, I will not trust them as far as I can throw a bagel. I have been off caffeine for six and a half years on doctors orders. I ordered decaf coffee and in addition to the cup I was given a carafe. I asked the server if the carafe was for me as a second one was also set down on the table. She responded yes. After roughly six cups of coffee over about an hour, I felt like something was seriously wrong and asked again but was told both carafes were regular. I spent the next 10 hours having heart palpitations, increased resting heart rate of 125 bpm on average, nausea, anxiety, loss of sleep, blurred vision and the most uncomfortable flight of life. To top this off, 20% gratuity was added to the check so we didn't even have the option for our tip to reflect this large oversight. If the staff can't get regular vs decaf coffee right, I am not sure I would trust their gluten free or vegan options either.

For the rest of our table...
We chose this place because we heard there was a great Blood Mary bar. The Bloody Mary bar is okay but for $14/drink, I would highly suggest going somewhere else for a more quality beverage. The service definitely left something to be desired as we were there almost 15 minutes prior to being greeted by a server. Most of my friend's meals were good but a little pricey ($16 for Eggs Benedict). My pancake was mixed up with someone else's so they had to remake mine and when I got the pancake it was so crispy it seemed like it was pan-fried. The buffet on the menu is just a hotel breakfast buffet, not a brunch buffet. Not even an omelet station is included. Overall, just a mediocre hotel restaurant that in typical hotel (not resort) fashion is overpriced for the quality extended.

Nice setting, but portions small for the price, everything was a la carte (no soup or salad included), service was slow, often we were ignored even though there were few people there. Food was ok (spare rib was tender). Nice seating are for drinking.
