We had lunch at the Prodigal on Saturday. The Fish and Chips was excellent and the Caesar Salad tasted wonderful! Portions are large and the food is just very good. Wonderful service, too.

Love being able to sit under a full moon and enjoy a beer. Good food and a warm vibe makes this one of my favorite stops.

What I love most about the Prodigal Son is it's cowboy-casual ambience. It's a large place with high ceilings and big front windows and plenty to look around at. The hamburgers are big and meaty and come with a heap of fries. Nice local craft beers too. You really can't go wrong here.

The raspberry wheat beer was delicious. The Reuben and Norm burger was marginal. The plates were too small as the food was overflowing. Waitress was attentive and efficient.
