We start with cage free, free roaming, all natural 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.

Our first visit, we were not disappointed. Started with Blackberry Lemonade cocktail, excellent summertime drink, then we had the cheese balls with a great dipping sauce. For our main entry my wife and I shared a whole chicken, figuring we would take some home, nope the only thing lief were the bones. With Price's Chicken closing they should see an increase in their business and rightfully so. We also shared some collards and sweet potato crock both were great compliments with the chicken. I forgot to mention the spicy hot honey which is a must over the chicken. You won't regret it!

The food was delicious!!! The beer was very cold. We got the hush puppies, whole chicken, French fries, spoon bread and Mac & cheese. All were delicious. The place is gorgeous and big.
My only complaints were there was a child that KEPT screaming, everyone was talking about it but no one said anything to them. It went on for the entire time we were there. Also our server, once she took our order she was pretty much gone. We only had one beer the entire time we were there. We would have had more, but she didn’t come back over until we were pretty much finished eating. It could have been an off day.
We will definitely be back though!

This is a GREAT place! We went there for a casual and relaxed mothers day and it was perfect. Food was excellent (everything was super!), service was AWESOME and atmosphere was perfect. Fun, casual, great food and background music made it a perfect day. The doors were open so the fresh air was an extra treat. We will definitely be back.

We were served fries that were stale and had clearly been reheated. By the time we got new ones we were pretty much done with our food. I would’ve thought they would have took them off our order, but of course not. I don’t like having a disjointed meal. Will not go back.

We originally made 5 pm reservations for 4 people. We ended up arriving early right at opening. The staff were still getting set up but they were very accommodating and sat us right away. It was really cold and the AC was blowing so hard directly around the whole area. Thankfully the car was nearby and we had a blanket in the trunk that we all shared. Our waitress was great and the food overall was good. Very small menu though. Chicken is very good just dissatisfied that no sides come with the chicken. Loved the hushpuppys. Granddaughter did not like the mac n cheese and honestly all she said was she didn't like the red flakes? We shared the chicken and all was fine. I recommend giving it a try.

I just absolutely love it here. The service is wonderful and the servers are so friendly. I get the winter salad, cornbread, and whatever floats my fancy when I’m in. This time I added fried chicken to my salad, and it was fantastic! I don’t like the bone in stuff, so I got my chicken fix my favorite way. I can’t wait for summer when those doors are open! Welcome to the neighborhood, we needed you!

It's a good fried chicken sandwich but it's not a great fried chicken sandwich. Charlotte has lots of competition in this space. If you're looking for the best fried chicken sandwich in town, do yourself a favor and go to Bossy Beulah's!
Service was just average at The Eagle as well. Again, with the number of great spots in Charlotte to dine at, service better be good or you risk people not returning in the future.

I have been to The Eagle three times since it opened. All three times the service and food have been great. I think it is the best bang for your buck of quality food I have found since I moved to Charlotte.

Their friend chicken is the best I have had in Charlotte! They have a spicy twist on hush puppies that is really really good. Their chicken blt sandwich is perfect. The Mac and cheese is pretty good and their biscuits are top class, especially with their butter and jam. Also their Southern Salad with fried chicken is filling but light! For as good as the food is, it is very modestly priced! My new favorite restaurant!!

Service was excellent. We got the shrimp po boy, sausage and kale dip, and southern chopped salad. The food was really good but as with everything these days, slightly overpriced. Our drinks were good not amazing. My partner got the old fashion - good but not his favorite in town. I got the Moscow mule which was HUGE. Overall we would be excited to eat here again!
