What Our Visitors Say

I will visit again.

Amazing family-owned establishment, high-end farm to table new american traditional. This Northbrook staple caters to the best-of-the-best because they ARE the best. Chef Sarah and Chef George are a joy, if you're lucky enough to see them leave the hectic bustle of the kitchen! The entire front of house staff is fantastic and the FOOD that backs up the experience is amazing and super healthy. Your palette will dance with their fantastic libation pairings. Olé!

I'm delighted!

Love the intense focus on excellence at this place! And even though they have great burgers and amazing steak, the chefs also serve delicious vegetarian and even vegan fare sometimes. The wild rice mushroom veggie burger is the best veggie burger I ever had!

The best restaurant!

I just want to do a shout out to Prairie Grass and chefs Sarah Stegner and George Bumbaris. We ordered a lot of sides from them for Thanksgiving, and they were all absolutely wonderful. If they offer this again next year, I will absolutely do it again. The mashed potatoes and gravy, the brussels sprouts with chestnuts were both soooo delicious! And the pumpkin pie was amazing! It made the thanksgiving dinner a lot easier having some prepared dishes.
