The comments shared were mostly flirtatious but included quips such as being told they’ve ‘worked here a while’.
Other suggestive phrases hinted the customers would go for them ‘if they were 20 years younger’ and suggestions that they’d ‘make beautiful children’.
Another had asked if the employees ‘came as a side order’.
The Prairie describes itself as a ‘friendly bunch’ which prides itself ‘on giving the warmest of welcomes’ on the company’s website, and has largely positive reviews on social media.

The pub’s TikTok account appears to be run by the three women in the video, who make funny posts about working at the establishment, including clips about ‘when your manager says you can go home early’ and ‘when it’s last orders’.
It comes following a recent public call-out of celebrities who have been rude to servers.
Stars such as Hailey Bieber, Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann and Kylie Jenner have over the years been publicly criticised for their poor treatment of staff at bars and restaurants.
And Monday saw James Corden join the list after he was lambasted online by the owner of NYC restaurant Balthazar, Keith McNally, for being the ‘most abusive customer’ ever.
James Corden became the latest celebrity to be called out for rude behavior after he was briefly banned from New York’s Balthazar restaurant amid claims that he was horrible to staff
The restaurateur shamed the Late Late Show host over two incidents – one in June and another in October – in which he yelled ‘like crazy’ at staff over an omelet and fries – and demanded free drinks ‘this second’.
‘James Corden is a hugely gifted comedian, but a tiny cretin of a man. And the most abusive customer to my Balthazar servers since the restaurant opened 25 years ago,’ McNally wrote in his scandalous Instagram post yesterday.
Corden, who is paid $36 million-a-year for his Late Late Show on CBS, was forced to apologize after the restaurateur’s post immediately went viral.
Hours later, McNally posted an update and revealed that Corden had phoned to apologize ‘profusely’, and that he was no longer banned from the restaurant.
Owner Keith McNally described two incidents in which Corden mistreated his staff, which the Late Late Show host has since apologized for
‘Anyone magnanimous enough to apologise to a deadbeat lay about like me (and my staff) doesn’t deserve to be banned from anywhere. Especially Balthazar….all is forgiven,’ he said.
The scandal is just the latest headline-making moment in which a famous name has been exposed for their less than impressive behavior while out in restaurants and bars.
In 2020, Hailey Bieber apologized to former New York City restaurant hostess Julia Carolan for her behaviour during their interactions.
Just days after Julia’s viral TikTok video was posted, Hailey shared an apology and wrote in the comments: ‘Just came across this video, and wanted to say so sorry if I’ve ever given you bad vibes or a bad attitude. That’s not ever my intention.
‘Hate hearing that was your experience with me but glad u called me out so I can do better!! Hopefully we meet again so I can apologize in person.’
