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.

    The Eagle used to be one of my go-tos! Last night was a complete disappointment. My chicken was lukewarm but I ate it; I sent my greens back 2 times due to them being cold. Unacceptable. My server was gracious but I think it’ll be a long time before I go back.

    We had reservations but we were early. They seated us immediately! Our server was great! Friendly and attentive. We were served the wrong main dish, and though there was some confusion, they made it right. We wouldn’t have made a fuss, but it was our anniversary and wanted it to be special. The food was all delicious. Although the shrimp and cheese grits turned out to be very spicy hot! I couldn’t finish them. But the chicken and collard greens were amazing as always. It was a good night.

    Love this place! Atmosphere is great & good place to go with family or friends. Chicken is excellent & sides are good choices. We loved the fries & horseradish mashed potatoes. (Don't let the word Horseradish scare you, they aren't hot) We've been 2x in 3 weeks for family birthday's.

    Our server Teddy was extremely attentive and was able to answer questions we had. Hush puppies were awesome as we're the fries with garlic aioli. Cocktails were spot on! It was very loud but that should be expected with the pub like atmosphere. All in all a very good place to try

    The Eagle has always been a favorite go-to restaurant in the past. This time was a completely different story. The restaurant has almost zero patrons in it when we arrived but with it being a Monday we just thought it was a slow night. Upon being handed a full bar menu we found out that the beer draft lines were apparently broken so all draft beers were out. The server made it seem like it wasn’t being addressed either. We decided to order bottled beer instead and was quickly informed that they were “out of a couple options” which the server then started to list. It was almost all of the options. So we decided to just order a Michelob Ultra instead. The beer was terrible, very flat and awful tasting. Upon ordering food I asked for an order or biscuits and was told “it would be at least 15 minutes for them” so I said “ok that’s fine. I’d still like them”. Well guess what never arrived, the biscuits. The widely known fried chicken was over cooked and dry and they added a seasoning layer under the skin of what tasted like Thanksgiving seasonings like rosemary and thyme flavors. It was terrible. The only redeeming quality was the sides of sweet potatoes and grits, both of which were awesome. It’s really sad that the food, beer options and service were all bad. It will be a long time before I go back to suggest someone else to try it.

    We loved The Eagle. The staff were engaging and friendly. They made recommendations and explained the menu with pride and genuine interest in our party enjoying a late lunch. The chicken is out of this world. Be sure to order the bacon appetizer as a special treat too.

    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!
