Reservations needed for Sat nite. Clears out after 8pm though. Food and service are both consistently good. Like the burgers. Soups could be better.

I have been going to Prairie Grass Cafe for years. It is one of my favorite places for Saturday and Sunday brunch, and a place I take out of town guests to. Great skirt steak, benedict and homemade pie.
