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.

Best fried chicken ever. Their mac and cheese is to die for. Highly recommend the sausage and kale dip app. Waitress was phenomenal and took great care of us.

This place is probably good when no Covid restrictions are in place. Food was okay but not great. I would give it another shot.

The "snacks" were nice, especially the the sausage and kale dip. The Chicken BLT was good but a little too spicy. The succotash and biscuits were the best sides.

I have been twice in the last month, and both times the food was delicious and fresh. The service was great both times as well, and the ambience is neat, which is hard to find right now from Covid restrictions. Definitely recommend!

Loved the fried chicken!! It’s on our list to return to. Chicken is crispy and juicy. Love the hot honey. Kale and sausage dip was really good. Fries were great with a sauce. Don’t skip the Mac n cheese!! Yum. Nice Bloody Mary and the best sweet tea we’ve had. Server was good but not very engaging. Not sure if there is a dessert menu

Delicious! Our food came out quickly and was perfect. Our server was attentive and nice, and was really sweet to our 3 year old, which we really appreciate. The hush puppies are a great starter, so delicious and just a hint of spice. I got the fried chicken BLT and my husband got the fried chicken sandwich and they were so good. The chicken was still crispy even with the toppings. We love this place!

Service was great, food was meh. Ordered a whole chicken, because it's a chicken house, overall it wasn't bad. The chicken has a little too much going on with the spices and it was the same case with the sides. Not a fan of radish mashed potatoes, fries were fries, mac and cheese was solid. Prices were a little on the high side, but what isn't right now. I am in desperate need for a goto fried chicken place and this doesn't live up to the hype.

Always so good. 4 of us met for dinner. They had great adherence to Covid protocols.

We ordered 1/2 chicken, 1/4 dark, kale salad with fried chicken, kale salad with shrimp. All were well prepared. The hot honey is soooo good.

Sides: grits - some of the best I've ever eaten. Succotash - modern twist on a southern staple - so yummy. Can't go wrong with the mashed potatoes.

The service was good. Can't imagine how hard it is to get and keep good servers right now. Glad The Eagle is able to be open and keep providing amazing food and great service.

We always make reservations at The Eagle when we come to visit our son at Bellarmine University. It is nice to be able to reserve a table and get right in. The food was excellent. I had the quarter white meat chicken and the half chopped salad, my husband had the half chicken and spoon bread, and our son had the chicken sandwich and Mac and Cheese. All was delicious and the salad was one of the best I have ever had! Their hush puppies are also to die for. We will definitely be back!
