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.

I was disappointed in our food , our waiter was great. They had a large group with small children sit right next to our table and they had a child that was crying real loud for about 15-20 mins .

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!

The chicken was decent but didn't meet the hype I had heard from others. The sides we tried were unique and tasty. My wife ordered a blackberry lemonade cocktail and it was very good.

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.

This was my first time coming to the eagle and just from the name of the place I knew it was going to be great. The food was outstanding and the waitress I had was down right awesome at her job! Hands down to The Eagle for being such a great place to chill, and just relax to watch some games. My Valentine’s Day was perfect!

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!

As an escape from Chicago, we ventured down to Louisville and found this gem. Patrick took great care of us and I haven’t had fried chicken this good since Al-Baik in Saudi Arabia. My husband and I couldn’t finish the whole chicken we ordered, but I’m actually glad because it means we can enjoy it again tomorrow. Highly recommend! 🐔

We go to the eagle every year on New Year’s Eve. But this year it has to be one of the worst years. The food wasn’t has good. And my fries were undercooked. Probably won’t be going back. And it’s kind sad because it’s a really pretty restaurant. With usually good food.
