The Prairie Inn is a great place to get a meal. The staff is friendly and helpful and the food is predictability good. A good place to sit down, visit and take a load off.

This place is a gem out in the middle of the North Dakota prairie! The place is immaculate, the service was quick. Good old American fare, right here.

Average breakfast. Eggs over easy and bacon. Bacon was good, eggs fair. Service was prompt and efficient. Perfect for on the road. A good place to walk the dog.
