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.

This was our first time there. The food was wonderful. My only complaint was that it was dark. Some members of our party had to use the light on their phones to read the menu

Great atmosphere with inside and outside seating and bars. Great place to watch sporting events. The food was excellent! Comfort food and seasoned to perfection. Large servings so we had plenty to take home! We are already planning our return trip!

Brought family in to have the fried chicken for the first time and like always, it didn’t disappoint. The new fritters starter was so good! Ordered their Bloody Mary - best I’ve ever had!!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in town . I bring friends, family and colleagues from work

Will never return to
This restaurant. We requested on the reservation that we would prefer a regular 4 topper table. We did not want the high bar stole table or a booth. This was in our open table reservation. After 10 minutes of discussion with the hostess and the manager we were taken to a booth with high bar stools.i asked repeatedly for the4 topper with low chairs. We ate our entire meal an “no one” sat at those two tables. Don’t care if the issue is resolved I have no intention of eating there ever again.
Sincerely, Linda Simonis

Make a reservation first and foremost! Service was good, noise was a little loud, but it didn’t matter as the food was DELICIOUS. Get the grits and the Mac n Cheese as your sides. Yum! Wish there was one closer to home, as I would come here often.

I usually love this place but this last visit just wasn’t up to standards. I made a reservation in advanced but was then sat in the bar area. My father has hearing impairments and the loudness of the bar made it impossible to have conversations during dinner, which is why I made a reservation to begin with. Service was not great, it took a long time to get our drinks and then even longer for my drink to be replaced after the glass chipped while I was trying to enjoy it. Our chicken came out amazing as usual but the sides were cold. At this point my father and I just decided to pay and go home, very disappointed.

The food was fine. The service could’ve been better - my elderly mom is a slow eater and the server took away her plate before she could finish her meal. Fortunately, we had leftovers that we could take home. The spoon bread was more like corn bread, unfortunately. The grits, mac and cheese, and fries were all well received. The biscuits were so very tender and tasty! The sweet potatoes were not as expected, but fine. It was really loud in there, but that seems to be what restaurants want these days.

The chicken was good and I liked the options of chicken servings. I’m not big on spicy chicken, but it wasn’t too spicy. I did not like the horseradish mashed potatos. All I could taste was the horseradish. I prefer just cream and butter in my mashed potatos with my fried chicken, but I’m a purist.

The kale salad was good and so was the spoon bread. We will come back again and try some other sides.

Meeting with daughter’s boyfriend

Did not want to seat us at first due to not all parties being there but when pushed to having 77 year lady there in the party reluctantly seated in the very back table. As they were not very busy at that time seating especially with Sr adult should not have been an issue.

I don’t think I will return soon

Have gone for lunch and dinner 5 times since moving to town in March and every time they are sold out of the Fritters. It’s extremely annoying. Ate there again two days ago and only 2 starters were available: candied bacon and the spinach and sausage dip (which I would recommend bc they’re both so good). The food there is excellent but not having items on the menu available anytime of day shows a lack of planning

Food was good. It took over an hour to get our order and they were maybe 75% capacity. Server was not personable. We asked if he was having a bad day and he said no. We asked for refills and he walked away without comment. Even though he was borderline rude, he did bring drinks but it took forever. We had drinks at the bar before eating and the fruit flies were all over. Bar smelled like old drinks. Needed a good scrubbing and bug spray. Bartender was very nice. We won't be back.

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.
