This is truly a surprise a Great Restaurant in a hotel! YES, that is correct for Glen Prairie. Chef Mike has put together an interesting menu with common food prepared in an unique way. Something for everyone including a Burger....ALL delicious. The Hand crafted cocktails are really a special treat and made with care for a great experience.
A little "heads up" would have been nice before our group of 8 adults were seated in a room of 40 plus teens. It was obvious the management and wait staff knew this was not a good situation as they kept apologizing. A simple phone call to warn us would have appreciated. Had I known we were going to be seated in the kids room at a kids table I probably would have adjusted or changed our reservation. We could hardly hear ourselves talk over the energy of the kids. Then when the kids all left after about 45 minutes into our dinner the cleaning and moving crew came in, dismantling all the folding tables and pushing brooms through the mess left behind. I don't know what was worse. We felt like we were in the storage room! AND our folding table wobbled quite a bit each time someone used their knife. We all left with a very bad taste.
Great food and great service with an excellent menu and the food is very fresh.
Lived up to its reputation! Don't let the "hotel restaurant" set-up scare you off - Glen Prairie provides comfortably upscale dining in the suburbs. Serious about farm to table without being pretentious. Our server clearly knew the menu well and checked on us at the appropriate pace. Food was attractively presented and delicious. Portions are reasonable, so you can enjoy an appetizer or soup along with your entree. Plenty of wines by the glass, plus local beers and specialty cocktails. Will have to try dessert next time!
Everything was great. It got too loud but it seemed like there were a lot parents just hanging out with drinks while their kids were dining before a dance.
Although the adults in our party enjoyed their meal, the 6 year old child did not. At first, we chalked it up to the excitement of the outing, but then I sampled her PB&J -- the thickly sliced bread was incredibly dry, and there was only a thin layer of peanut butter and jelly. I'd avoid the sandwich for younger kids!
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.
Love the local, GF options.
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.
Every dish we tried was delicious! Can’t wait to go back!!
Very good experience. Enjoyed the pecan crusted pork with sweet potatoes and cauliflower. Chicken pot. pie was good and Mac and cheese delicious. Server was excellent. Very fresh home cooking.
Great service and incredible food. We will be back soon!
Our waiter Todd was Outstanding!
Food was good, but took awhile, with no update as to why it was taking so long.
Server tried to make up for the wait, which was nice.
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.
Our fav place!! Never disappoints
Great food, great service, interesting menu. Comfortable bar area to sit with drinks before dinner.
Kathleen our server is very pleasant.
Glen Prairie is a gem! The food is delicious...well prepared, creative and there's something to please EVERYONE. In fact, there are so many wonderful choices to please anyone! The staff is amazing...and really make the dining experience so pleasant. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of what you get. Highly recommended!
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!
One of our party needs the gluten free choices and she was very pleased. My salmon was excellent and all of us thought the food was very good and prices fair. Our waiter was very attentive and went out of his way to make sure we satisfied. We will definitely come back again.
This is one of our favorite places. Food is always outstanding. Dining room is cozy and softly lit. Service is always friendly and attentive. It’s a great place for a casual bite or a very nice dinner.
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!
Third time here and have loved it every time. Incredible gluten free options, great for celiacs. Service is always fast, efficient and charming. Food is delicious and very reasonable in price. Look forward to our next visit.
Fantastic service. We had 3 people with special dietary needs and the chef was fantastic! We will definitely be back.
Kathleen our Server was wonderful
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.
didn't know there was a special holiday menu...(it'd be great if they would have updated that information on open table...)
