We start with cage free, free roaming, all natural 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.

Having frequented this place plenty of times before, the service was just off for this visit - it took at least 10 minutes to get waited on upon being seated, had to ask for water refills, food was okay (compared to previous visits). I love this place and will be back, but maybe they had an off day due to COVID related things.

This is the best fried chicken I’ve ever had in my 60 years on this planet. Exceptional sides too. I also love the blues music they always have on. Great atmosphere, great food, great people. Not the healthiest meal I eat, but if I’m going to splurge, this is where I want to go.

Everything was great except for the noisy table nearby. We were in the small back room with a VERY noisy table. I could barely hear my partner even though he was sitting right across from me. It became quite frustrating throughout the meal and we rushed to leave the restaurant.

Chicken is very good but pretty salty. Perfect for after a workout or a long hike. Place has a modern feel and service is usually very good.

The food was incredible as was the service. The Eagle is also very much committed to being as health conscious as possible given the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. I hope to go back in the near future!

Service was prompt, waiter was friendly . However, food came out in less than 8 min and was cold. It was apparent that the food had been sitting a while. Everything was also insanely spicy. Not the usual “Eagle standard” I am used to. I will try again in a few months.

My Wife and I love The Eagle OTR! One of our favorite restaurants! Food is top notch, we always get the Chicken (with hot honey), Mac N Cheese, Sweet potato, and the fries. INCREDIBLE. Service is always polite and efficient. Managers periodically check on tables. Great experience for our anniversary!

Would like more spacing between tables so we dont have to hear the other conversations. It was hard to have conversation on Valentines Day.

We had a wonderful waitress. There were 8 of us crammed into a moon-shaped booth. Our waitress suggested moving us to a more spacious table which was wonderful. She was very attentive and checked often to refill our beverages. She was so pleasant and did a wonderful job. She definitely deserves a raise in salary.

We had reservations at 7:30 pm for NYE. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was fun! We were pleasantly surprised that even though the staff was working on a holiday they seemed happy to be there and make sure we were very well taken care of. Highly recommend!

Upon arriving the hostess was very unprofessional. We said a reservation was in our name. Her response was I don’t see it on mines. She took us to our seats and I showed her our reservation and with a smirk on her face she replied with okaaaaaaay have a nice meal. Once was my favorite restaurant but I will never go again because of her.

Embarrassed to admit this is our first time but we will be back!!! Yum!!! He had the whole chicken; I had the half. Oh so delicious flavor and crispy without being too much breading. The chicken was so juicy and flavorful. The spicy honey is a great added kick of flavor. We shared cole slaw, Mac and cheese and mashed potatoes and gravy. I loved them all though I would have loved the taters without horseradish. Service was quick and attentive without being rushed. But we had lots of leftovers. On street parking was easy.

The Chicken was delicious, we loved it!
Mac n Cheese - very under cooked, sauce runny and pasta barely cooked. When I asked the server about replacing, he took it away and said, any they had would be the same and he did not ask if I'd like a substitute. He did take it off the bill. Collard Greens - yuck very strong vinegary taste, could not taste onions, garlic, ham/bacon or any other flavor.
