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.

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.

Great atmosphere, excellent service and good food. Fried chicken excellent and sides were good, just a few of the amenities were so-so (jam and honey-butter) and appetizer ( sausage/kale queso) was not my favorite. But we will definitely come back.

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.

Celebrating a birthday and the Eagle was great. We had a reservation for 6 at 6:30 and were seated promptly. Service was very attentive. Started off with biscuits and spoon bread. Delicious. We all got white meat fried chicken and shared Mac n cheese and sweet potatoes. It was also delicious. It wasn’t crowded at all and felt safe with proper social distancing and masks. Recommend for down home southern food.

Despite outdoor seating not being a selectable option on Open Table, the staff at The Eagle were more than willing to accommodate our request to sit outside. The table had a fire pit in the center, which made for a cozy outdoor dinner while social distancing. Our meals came out promptly, and our waiter was attentive. I thought the cost was very reasonable both for the portions and quality. The Kentucky Mule was a particularly great value.

Our server and food were amazing. I recommend everyone consider eating here at least once. I can't wait to come back.

The check-in experience for book ahead reservations who wish to sit outside should be smoothed over. We walked away from the check-in space very confused because we were given very little guidance or direction. However, even with that mentioned - they sat us quickly.
