Prairie House Restaurant
119 E. Main St., Lewisville, TX
The Prairie House Restaurant enjoys a historic location that was formerly the Lewisville Feed Mill. For 124 years, the feed mill supplied locals with all the essentials. Over the decades this transformed from bins of oats, wheat, and corn to shelves of gardening supplies and pet food. In 2018, the building transformed into the J2 Steakhouse, and in 2020, it saw another update as it became the Prairie House Restaurant that you’ll find today.
The Prairie House Restaurant still serves some J2 favorites and offers a full menu of hearty Texas fare. If your partner enjoys barbecue, you’ll love the house-smoked offerings here, which include brisket, smoked sausage, smoked turkey, and baby back ribs. You’ll also find mouthwatering indulgences like a 12-ounce prime strip, bison or elk burger, and mesquite-smoked 12-ounce prime rib. Pair that with classics like cowboy beans or fried okra, and finish up with a slice of fried cheesecake and you have a meal to remember.
