Prairie Schooner Is What It Is

Generally, we all love the Prairie Schooner for what it is: A slightly overpriced steak house with a cool old west night time theme. However, the last couple of times we have been and/or TRIED to go, we have been mildly dissappointed. Mostly (for me) the value proposition is lacking  just a bit. I think the food is pretty good, but the choices are a little limited or start to get a little crazy spendy more in the ilk of what  Spencer’s or Ruth’s Chris in Salt Lake serves. Is the the steak THAT good? Um…. well…. probably not quite. Not quite. But not bad. Of course. I am speaking for ME. My wife is pretty upset. I do a more formal review of the food on my main site:

Mad Wife, Sad Life

She wanted to go for the weekend brunch with the girls this Labour Day Weekend and she tried checking out the menu on the website. No brunch menu, and only painful PDF’s for Lunch and Dinner to download from the Flash Based icky website. Not ugly-icky, just navigational stupid-icky.  She also tried calling several times the day of going and could only get  a prerecorded message with general info.

Village Inn It!

So she went to the Prairie Schooner, got out of the car, went to the door, read the posting on the door, and then went to Village Inn. The reason? They are closed for renovations until September 13th, 2010. So of course, you have to wonder what kind of idiot doesn’t put that on their website or at the very least on their pre-recorded message on the main phone line. Oh, Prairie Schooner idiots. That’s who!
