Went to this place with our two oldest daughters, they told us we had to order the cheese curds as they were homemade, and they were yummy. We also had sandwiches and what appeared to be homemade fries.

The Prodigal Son has great bohemian atmosphere. Old time building refurbished into the now bohemian look. Plenty of seating inside and on the sidewalk. They have great fish and chips as well as salads.

Again, the décor of the place remains lifeless. The floors are sticky and don't appear to have been mopped for a while. However, the sandwiches were hefty and tasty, the beer was good, and the service was excellent.

Chicken wings, fries, sweet potato fries, and several salads to choose from. They would probably wrap a sandwich or burger in lettuce if you asked!
