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.

Even with reservation we waited 35 minutes. Then waited an hour for our food. I doubt I will be back. Chicken was good but didn’t compensate for the other failures.

Great size portions for the price! We ordered the kale salad to start, 1/2 chicken, mash potatoes, mac n cheese and biscuits. Everything was delicious! My only complain is the breading on the chicken was a little thick and salty. However, the chicken was cooked perfectly. All of the staff was friendly and efficient.

Wonderful. 1st timer. Had the kale/sausage dip. Stir it up to mix the ingredients. You won’t be disappointed! Chicken sandwich was delicious. Our table ordered 3 sides which were shareable. And of course, have a craft beer.

We had a large party that was accommodated very well. No complaints from the group, food was amazing (MAC & cheese was a big success). Thanks for making it a great night.

Only complaint is wish the service was better. Understand there are sometimes kitchen issues but seemed to be only a service issue, as the food was amazing. Poor service included waiter absence for long periods of time, no drink refills unless party members asked for themselves, no silverware until party members asked for themselves, and small salads that were suppose to come before entrees did not arrive until main course.

The food was excellent. Really good fried chicken. The only reason I did not give it a 5 was because drinks were hard to get. It was the day of the St. Patrick's Day parade, so I am hoping this is what affected the service at the bar.

The chicken is amazing! But the sides are as well, even the fries are extraordinary. My favorite appetizer is the fritter.

This was dinner with some friends. The menu is limited. I had fried chicken which was too hot. I had burgoo that was below average. The server was very good. We had a bad table in a high traffic area.

First time there for my sons 23 bday he picked the place. We all loved it! Mac and cheese was delicious and the chicken was fabulous. He got a free drink cause of bday which was really nice. We will def be back. Loved the little room they put us in, very private. Fireplace was broke which would have been cool. Little pricey but every good place is

As always, the Eagle hit the mark. I took a group of colleagues to dinner and they barely came up for air after our meal arrived.
I have been to the OTR location many times. The Louisville location was bigger, but had just as much character as the OTR location.
Highly recommend.

Made a reservation for 8 and got to sit at a table upstairs that was semi-secluded from the other diners and it was great! Great service and good food! We thought we would do the family meal but decided that choosing our own assortment of sides was better. Would love to come back in warmer weather to sit outside!

We have been to the Eagle probably 8 to 10 times. Always good service, meal, etc. This time very different. We had a reservation and did not get seated until 30 mins later and probably because my adult son was experiencing low blood sugar levels and almost passed out.
We appreciated someone getting him water until we got seated. Once seated our cornbread appetizers came very quickly which we appreciated.
Once food order was taken, it took a long time. We had 4 orders of mac and cheese and everyone was cold to touch on top and barely warm underneath. Never had that before. Chicken was very good as always. Two had coke refills that had to come in plastic to go cups because no cups were clean.
It definitely wasn't the pleasant experience we've always had in the past. It was several things which I feel warranted this review.

We had a wonderful experience last weekend. Ashley was a fantastic server. As it was our first time, she went through the menu with us. She was attentive without hovering. The fried chicken was so flavorful and juicy. We had the mac and cheese, spoon bread, cole slaw, and biscuits and it was all delicious.

The amount of food you get for your money is crazy. This place is awesome. The chicken had a little kick to it but not enough to set your mouth on fire. The sides are for two people and are ridiculously priced low. I recommend this place highly. be sure to get the whole chicken so you can take some home and you will be taking it home.

My fiancé and I had reservations for Valentine’s Day and were seated right away. Our server was friendly and explained new items to us. Our food came out pretty quickly. The fritters were delicious and spicy, our food was as delicious as we thought it would be. Our server was quick to refill our drinks. We love this place and recommend it to everyone.

Loves the food. Ate there with some work people. We started with the cheese dip (has sausage) and the spoonbread. Both were bowling licking good. 3 of us had salads with chicken, and 1 had the chicken sandwich. Everyone raves. Great drink menu also

Did not like sitting at a high top table on metal barstools. When I go out to eat I want to sit comfortably and this WAS NOT it. Also we made reservations and were still seated next to the front door and had people standing around our table the whole time. I won’t be back.
