little pricey, vegetarian dishes were a little bland but still good
I'm sad to see this place go but it was a hidden gem within the Friendship/East Liberty area. The food is a bit over priced for American cuisine, though the ambiance was really magnificently rustic. Our waitress took our order without a pen and pad so it was understandable that some of our orders were slightly messed up. Feeling bad, our waitress gave us a round of tequila shots on the house as a kind gesture for the mistakes from the kitchen. Her kindness made the experience all the better.
This was our second trip to Prairie and it was just as good the second time as the first. The fried green tomatoes were outstanding! The Woodford Mule is honestly worth a visit alone. I haven't tried any other drinks even though the drink menu looks really interesting because the Mule is so good.
The food is unremarkable and quite bland. Everything needs more sauce, such as the chicken and meatloaf. They are too dry.
I've been there twice and both times I ordered the chocolate cake and both times it was frozen!
We stopped in for Father's Day brunch at 2pm. It was nearly empty. The food was really excellent; my steak and eggs were great.
Our reservation for father's day brunch was very nice. My dad loved the pecan maple French toast which included fresh berries. I enjoyed a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on a large (burger sized) homade biscuit, along with potatoes. And my mom had the traditional breakfast with eggs , bacon, sausage, and potatoes. It was all very good. The service was very good, but the kitchen was a little slow for the small crowd they were serving. Over all great experience as we got to enjoy the out door patio. We'll be returning soon to try some of the drinks and dinner menu!
This could be a great place but for a Friday night, it should be packed & was barely filled. Despite being barely filled, it took a very long time for the entrees to arrive. The menu is interesting and the food was very good. New marketing techniques may help. This could be a great place but word is not out.
Recently ate brunch at Prairie with a party of eleven. Even though we were a large party the food came out together and everything thing was delicious. Will definitely go back and highly recommend this restaurant.
Great service. Friendly staff. Food? Perfect. Drinks? Perfect. Sitting outside forces you to deal with car and street traffic, but it is so worth it. I'll defiantly be returning.
we went on a warm weekday evening - sat out on the patio, which was a little noisy as it was close to the road, but not terribly so. The Brussels sprouts gratin was perfectly cooked and flavorful and just the right size for 2 people. I had the pasta orrechiete, vegetarian and the flavors were delicious, light and summery. My husband who had the trout said the same of his dish too.
Dessert - bread pudding was one of the best we had tasted, as was the pecan cookie. the strawberry rhubarb pie in a jar was more rhubarb than strawberry, which is fine if you like rhubarb. the apple crumble however was a a bit of a disappointment as there was not enough crumble to offset the tartness of the apple.
Service was great. Would definitely go back to try their other menu items at a different time and if they change it seasonally, we plan to visit again to check that out too
