About Prairie Moon, Evanston

Prairie Moon is an Evanston restaurant located downtown at 1635 Chicago Avenue, across from Whole Foods and near Northwestern University. There is ample street and garage parking. We serve American regional fare for dinner seven days per week.

Prairie Moon is one of Evanston’s longest running restaurants, opened in 2002, and in fact, holds one of Evanston’s first liquor licenses. Evanston is home of Frances Willard, the national president of Woman’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) and was a completely dry city until 1972. It didn’t legalize liquor stores until 1984 and its first distillery and brewery opened in 2011 and 2012.

Prairie Moon owners were born, raised and live in Evanston, and much of our staff lives in Evanston. We’re proud to be a staple in the Evanston community and known for our great food and drink, our history, and for our dedication to the local needs of Evanston.
