We start with free range, all natural amish chicken. It’s brined, dredged, then dropped into custom-built fryers. Its got a little kick and is served with our house made hot honey.

    I'd been to The Eagle in Louisville the times before, and last night felt off. Service was great not the food was not as good. My two piece white meat had a tiny little wing and a breast that was mostly bone.

    We loved the interior of the restaurant and enjoyed the first part of our meal until a table of 12 men was seated next to us. What started out as a nice relaxing dinner turned in to us attempting to shout at each other across the table. I truly wish management would have asked that table to keep it down. It made what was shaping up to be a wonderful anniversary dinner turn into a us eating as fast as possible so that we could leave.

    We had a party of 6 reservation, for a cousins monthly lunch. This is a great location, and the weather was perfect- windows open. The place was understaffed. Our waitress did a good job, but it was unfortunate that they were out of a lot of items- no Bloody Mary mix - so they couldn’t make a Bloody Mary at a Sunday brunch . No gravy for mashed potatoes- the truck with supplies didn’t come in and they didn’t have the” mix” . ? ?. No coffee. Had to ask for ice for the iced tea. No Splenda . After we had ordered the family dinner - no Mac and cheese. After the poor waitress had raved about it being so good and her favorite. BUT ……. The kale salad was great. The chicken was good, and came out hot. We subbed the grits for Mac and cheese, and they were good. The mashed potatoes that came with the meal were dry- really did need that gravy. And the collards were well seasoned - really good.

    Initially, our waitress was friendly, but forgot a drink. She didn't offer the dessert menu and seemed to try to shoo us out. The menu is limited. Obviously, a fried chicken place, but limited on other options. Definitely NOT healthy.

    Noise level - not "energetic" LOUD!!! You cannot have a conversation inside. The food was decent - but "sharing" is not really true - you can share with one other person on sides. The waiter was not horrible - but we didn't get our second round of drinks. We only received one appetizer (we ordered two). He was not attentive, meaning once we got the food - that was it. We ordered our second drinks when the food arrived, but never saw him again until it was bill time. He was gracious - telling us to ask for him next time we came back - but, uh, no! Just okay. As for access - note LOTS OF STEPS!! We had an 86 year old person with us - who was asked to go up "a few stairs" to our reserved table - there were two sets of stairs - 5 then 2 more. This restaurant is NOT accessible for table seating - only in the bar area.

    Of course, they are famous for their chicken - yum! White cheddar grits have a little kick 🔥 to them and I like it that way. Succotash was very tasty too but caution to vegetarians- it has bacon.

    Loved it. Who can’t have fried chicken when Kentucky! Great place to find. We struck lucky, as parking looked challenging on a Saturday and found a spot directly outside the door. For food - fried chicken. Great taste and beautifully moist. Excellent sides - never had succotash before! Attentive and helpful server also. Drinks range great - and as a Brit, getting Crabbies Ginger Beer a bonus! Very good evening all round.

    Great food and great service! Highly recommend getting an “off menu” item which is the fried chicken Mac and cheese — just their famous Mac and cheese with a cutlet on top! To take it the the next level, drizzle spicy honey on top! Delicious!

    Service Good, food came out fast. Bar backed up got drinks after food arrived. They should have comped the drinks or at least apologized. All food came out together starters, chicken and sides. The fries were super salted. Not complaining because I know how difficult service is these days, but for $100 (incl tip) for 2 people to eat a 1 salad, chicken, 2 shared sides and 2 drinks - the value was a bit off.

    Not our type of dining ambiance. The place could be clean but still,looks dirty. Food is nothing to get excited about. Chicken was good as well as rhe hush puppies, sweet potatoes casserole was a dried up mess. The Kale salad was the high of our experience;

    We each ordered 1/4 chicken (white meat), and shared a spoon bread, mac and cheese, and sweet potato casserole with toasted mini marshmallows! The spoon bread had a weird taste and they quickly replaced it with hot delicious homemade biscuits, honey/ butter, and blackberry jam! The first chicken was way past being fresh, it was so dry and almost burnt, they also brought fresh delicious chicken out. Unfortunately it's just not the same as being served delicious food to start with!

    Chicken was delicious…crispy, cooked perfectly, just the right amount of seasoning and not too much heat. Sides on the other hand, weren’t as good as they sounded. Cornbread too sweet, mashed potatoes-couldn’t taste the horseradish at all, Mac n cheese not creamy, more like noodles just in a sauce. I think they were probably short staffed, the bode of every restaurant’s existence these days, as the food took a very long time. Waitress was very attentive though.

    We had a reservation and we were day right away. We had a very nice server and which service for drinks and food. The food was excellent. We had blackberry lemonade, fried chicken, fries, cole slaw, sweet potatoes, cornbread and mashed potatoes. The sides were a perfect size and very reasonable price so you could get lots of different options. EVERY single thing tasted great. Would do definitely recommend and return.
