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.

Everything thing was really good. The only negative was when we got the bill and a glass of “house” Chardonnay was $14!! A little surprised at that one. When questioned I was told that that was the correct price .

I love going to The Eagle and have always enjoyed my experience. I had a family gathering this weekend and there were six of us together. Food was great, however we sat for almost an hour before our food came out and the restaurant didn’t appear to be overly busy. I have never had to wait long here. Other than that, food again was great as always.

Delicious food...homemade biscuits with blackberry jam-YUMMY!! Had 5:15 reservations on a graduation night (college graduation), place was busy but we were called back at exactly 5:15. After seated, waited approx 15 mins before server came to us, once approached our table, very apologetic stating she was serving out on patio, and they forgot to tell her that she now had tables inside. Very sweet and apologized several times. Service was great and friendly, food came in timely manner

First time there for a graduation lunch. Very crowded but we had made reservations and got our seats in a timely manner. Even though it was crowded our waitress was very courteous and friendly. Food was very good but chicken had a little kick to it. Would recommend.

We never received our food. We left a gift card for the drinks and appetizer and left the restaurant. We arrived for our reservation at 5:45 and was seated around 6 pm. We were seated in off in a dark corner by an exit door. We were served drinks and appetizer and ordered. We waited for a while for the 2nd round of drinks as our server took a while to get back to us. I noticed she was taking the drink order of a couple that just came in. Server came to us to tell us our order will be out shortly. About 15 min later the manager game out said that they were putting the finishing touches on our order. Server came back 2 min later and asked if the manager came by and offered us waters. 20 minutes later the couple that came in a while after us, received their order which appeared to have some of the same items we ordered. At 7:20 another order came out of the kitchen and wasn’t ours so we left. This is the first in my life that I have
ever felt that I had to leave. We will not return. Oh and it was our wedding anniversary.

Took forever to order and receive food - 180 degree difference from the last time we went when the restaurant was less busy. Lots of great options for kids...but not very helpful if they take forever to arrive and your kids are hangry. I'll be back, but will definitely avoid times when there are only one or two spots left / when there's likely to be a service crunch.

When you go to Louisville you had better be ready for two major foods, fried everything and BBQ. It is usually very good, casual and fun.

The Eagle would be one of the best in town for fried chicken. It is crunchy outside hot and juicy inside. It's about as good as I have ever had. The sides of spoonbread,
Mac and Cheese, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes are all outstanding. Service was quick and attentive. Worth the trip and make a reservation.

The staff was as great as the food. I took an elderly relative and they were very attentive and accommodating even though it meant changing table reservations around at the last minute. They were fast and efficient and never made us feel as if we were causing a problem. As someone who has worked in the restaurant business, I was very impressed.

Fantastic food, and great atmosphere. We had a weird table in the corner behind the bar and I think our server forgot about us at times for water refills (needed more than expected with the spicy honey) but been here a few times and it never disappoints. Fantastic spot.

I normally don't eat meat but my husband highly recommended this place. Because he ate at one with our daughter and friends in Cincinnati and loved it! So I decided to take his mom and our son to eat there. We didn't have to wait at all to be seated which is good and bad. Because my hubby said the one in Cincinnati has at least an hour wait. Long story short the server had way too many tables for her to handle so she wasn't around much. After taking our order she disappeared. We ordered a lot of food for 3 people. The spoonbread, kale salad, French fries, chicken sandwich, shrimp to boy, and a whole chicken. The chicken was very greasy as if it has been cooked and sat in a warmer like KFC buffet. Just drowning in it's on grease. Honestly if it wasn't for my mother in law and son. I probably would have left. With that said I would have complained too if I did not have them with me. We brought the entire chicken home and I had to throw it out because it was so greasy and over cooked.
Over all experience not good:(

My family and I loved our meal at The Eagle. We have the fried chicken, fried chicken sandwiches and the kale salad. We also had the mac and cheese and fries as sides. All of the food was outstanding. This is not the place to go for low cal fare, but the if you are in the mood for comfort this is the place to go. I also enjoyed the bourbon flight! We will be back on our next visit to Louisville or Cincinnati.

On vacation with family. First stop after getting off the road. The ambiance is Lu rly and it’s hit a great feel. However the food is hit and miss. The bacon that everyone raves about literally felt and looked like it was dipped and spread with lard first. The menu is all a la cart and the portions are not very big in terms of sharing ( mac and cheese was very small). The kale salad was good and the pier boy was a decent size and tasted good. The chicken sandwich was mediocre as were the collards. Biscuits also weren’t anything out of this world.

Just didn’t live up to the expectations set by the website and the decode and feel. Services was friendly but spotty. Manager gave us free biscuits because our were burner and a new batch took forever to make . So as I said friendly service and it spotty. It’s also in an adorable part of the city so there is that !
