    Everything is great at Prairie Grass Cafe, delicious, fresh & locally sourced. Sustainably responsible. Love their fish (arctic char & white fish), crispy brussels sprouts, smoked salmon flatbread-yum

    Came here for Saturday brunch - everything was good, a little on the pricier side. But they have mimosas, which are hard to come by for brunch in the suburbs!

    It wasn't what it use to be. Food was average and service was just so so.

    A bit disappointed with the $12 Bloody Mary supreme. $4 more than regular Mary buys one shrimp and one olive.

    The windows are a bit drafty during the winter but they are next to the booths which are fairly quiet unlike the rest of the restaurant which is really loud. Space aside, great food. Ahi tuna was +1

    If you come here during pumpkin season, have the pumpkin bread French toast with cream cheese and fresh baked pumpkin! The chiliquiles are also delish.

    Crowds here can be maddening, but it’s a small price to pay when there’s high-style comfort food like crab cake, juicy roast duck, and a killer skirt steak to be had. Read more

    At this Northbrook eatery, seasonal fare will make mom and pop smile, but kids’ Tall Grass burgers and mac and cheese will bring on small grins, especially with make-your-own-pizza Fridays. Read more

    Wednesdays are two for one burgers. The servers might glare at you, but go for the deal anyway. The burger is delish!

    Baked feta cheese and liver pate are terrific appetizers. Mom's pies are great too
