    We had a group of 10 for my wife’s birthday, and the restaurant was very accommodating. The food was great, and the atmosphere was of a colonial time gone by, which fits the setting of the town. The Pub under the restaurant is a quaint place, and was a great place for our group to gather after the meal to extend the evening. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody for a nice evening out, or a special celebration.

    If you are on the PA turnpike - get off at Bedford and have a meal at the Golden Eagle instead of settling for that horrid Turnpike fast food! They have a limited menu, but with a number of interesting takes on America cooking. Hanger Steak was cooked perfectly medium - just pink in the middle and well done on the surface. Meatloaf was made with top quality beef and again cooked crisp on the surface and juicy in the middle. Dessert that we had was homemade peach pie with ice cream - delicious. They have local beer on tap and a good selection of wines by the glass or bottle. We will make it a regular break in our trips when we are on PA turnpike.

    We stopped in for dinner and i ordered the salmon. It was delicious and the portion was generous. I believe that you should serve some sort of side dish with the salmon or serve a nice side salad made with field greens or even steamed asparagus would be a nice touch. The atmosphere was wonderful. We got a tour of the building including several of the bedrooms. I love the history and am impressed with the utilization of the space. We were so impressed, we stopped back the next day to sit outside and have a glass of wine and just talk.

    I was so glad to find that this restaurant has reopened and is as fabulous as it was the several times I had been there before it changed owners. I had the steak and my husband had the salmon and they were both exquisite as was the salad we ordered (with roasted pineapple... yum!) The ambience is unusual as there is quiet classical music played in the background, providing a perfect venue for being able to have conversation over dinner. BRAVO to the new owners!

    A visit with another era as a result in its being located in an old building in quaint, historic Bedford. Food was delicious and servings were generous. Thought service was a tad slow, but that was no big deal. Very reasonably priced!

    Restaurants in Bedford are slowly beginning to establish interesting options. We have found that dinner at Lifestyle was fun but inconsistent, 10/09 Kitchen was good but could improve. My wife and I are not steakhouse fans and therefore not a fan of 1786 (I think that is the right year), and found the Crystal Room a disappointment. However, the food at The Golden Eagle Inn, was excellent. The shrimp and grits were rich, with a perfect amount of heat and the shrimp were perfectly cooked. My wife had the meatloaf which she has never ordered before, it came with a tomato jam that was superb. The menu is fairly simple but the attention to detail makes this a gem.

    This is our favorite restaurant in Bedford. We always stop in when we are passing through. The chef is awesome. You pay so much more for this quality in Pittsburgh. It's truly a gem! We also stopped in at the tavern downstairs for a drink. They have a great beer selection and it was a lively place!

    I'm impressed yet again with the quality and diversity of the menu and top notch service at the Golden Eagle Inn. If you're traveling through Bedford or have an occasion to stop in the Bedford area, you have to try this restaurant and Inn. They always have a unique menu with a nice variety of selections. The plates are presented with the highest level of care and the tastes of everything I've tried there are like nothing I've had before. The hangar steak is the absolute best steak I've ever tried. My wife had a no-flour chocolate cake that was about the best desert I've ever tried. We had to order another! We've actually considered driving the 1-1/2 hour drive to Bedford on a whim just to have a good dinner.

    I just loved the ambience, friendliness and sound for this acoustic music dining experience with musician Dave Howsare! We enjoyed the evening, the food, the sound, the friendliness. Hosts, Mary Jane and Tom are attentive and delightful. The Inn, pub and restaurant are located conveniently in historic downtown Bedford. The Golden Eagle Pub is comfortable and a lovely place to share some time with friends. I highly recommend this establishment and hope there are more acoustic music evenings in the future!

    Made reservations. Two large rooms - loud party for 10 or 12 in one. Decoration - colonial/Victorian mix - flowered wallpaper, high ceilings, brass chandeliers. FAR too light - like eating in a cafeteria. Dimmers? White table cloths, but not a fancy setting. No candles, no flower vase on table. Only one server for the entire place. Placed order for their special, and ten minutes later told they were out of it. Menu had good selection, but nothing we really wanted. I had bacon wrapped chicken stuffed/spinach - husband the hanger steak - tasty. Non-elegant experience. The chef came out to ask us if everything was OK at a point when we had no food yet, and had just been told we couldn't get what we ordered. A head shaker.

    Our first visit, we celebrated my husband's birthday here, in the lovely main dining room by a great fireplace and fire. Seated promptly (not a busy night) and attended by a most personable and gracious server, we enjoyed our evening immensely. The wine list, Pennsylvania craft beers and high-end cordials and liquors would satisfy any palate. The menu is small but most interesting with something for everyone. Our meals and desserts was superb. My only concern might be for noise level, should there have been a full room; only one other party was there that night and made the room's slight hollowness noticeable. That said, the venue is charming and comfortably elegant. The street-level pub will definitely be our next stop. We will return!

    If not for the food at the Golden Eagle Inn, I would give it a "meh" rating. The decor is dated, and they didn't have our first choice in wine (even though the winery that produces it is right down the road). That being said, the food was very good. We ordered the steak eggrolls as an appetizer, they were good, but nothing to write home about. My wife and I both had the lobster gazpacho, which was different, but very good. I had the Land and Sea. The lobster was a little lacking in size, but the steak was excellent and plentiful. We split a berry-something desert. Fresh berries with a whipped cream in between two pastries with a berry glaze. Quite good. Overall, it was a very good dining experience with the food being the best part.

    We were there on a slow winter night and it was just lovely. The crayfish cake app was enough for a meal so I followed that with a Caesar with roasted chicken. Not your typical Caesar; nice and light. I also love that they serve wine from the local winery, Briar Valley. Give the wine a try when you're there and stop at the Briar Valley tasting room right up the street. We really enjoyed the Golden Eagle and will return again when we're in Bedford. Spent time talking with the owner after dinner, very nice guy and loving his new gig!

    This was our third time dining at the Golden Eagle Inn. We've tried something different every time and each time was absolutely amazing. It's obvious that great care goes into the preparation of each meal. The chefs have created a unique menu which has changed a few times since we first visited. I can't say enough good things about the quality and flavor of the dishes served. Not a single complaint. We've eaten at a lot of good restaurants over the years and my wife and I both agree that the Golden Eagle Inn is by far the best. On top of the quality of food, the service is excellent. Very friendly management and wait staff. Food is all served at the same time and everyone's food was excellent. Highly recommend.

    I was at the Omni this past week and ventured into the small town of Bedford for dinner...I was shocked by the menu! I thought I was in NYC! The food was incredibly delicious! The husband and I are still talking about our dinner! We shared the mussels, which were perfect. I had the duck and my husband did his usual, steak! We were both blown away by the skill and execution of the chef! Wow, just wow!! Dessert was equally amazing as we shared the lemon tart and pumpkin cheesecake(we couldn't decide)! The next time you're at the resort make sure you come to the Golden Eagle Inn. You won't be disappointed!!!

    The Golden Eagle Inn is fast becoming the place for not only lunch and dinner but for brunch. The food is delicious and the menu well conceived. They have a full bar but I reccomend trying their PA Craft Beer selections or partaking from their wine offerings. Reservations are not required but they are appreciated. Next time you're in Bedford County, don't miss your opportunity to experience Chef Zach's fare and enjoy this beautiful and historical restaurant and inn.

    The food was excellent but the service was slow. Bring your patience, it was worth it. Also the dining room is very historic, beautiful but the chairs were very squeaky and hard. We had the opportunity to enjoy the Octoberfest menu. The chef was very accommodating to my dad's heart healthy diet.
