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.

The eagle is my favorite restaurant in Cincinnati. Every time I have friends or family visiting I take them here and they always love it.

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.

Felt the chicken was a bit dry, and the wait for food was longer than the last time I was here. But overall was very good, service was excellent. happy with the experience.

I have always enjoyed the Eagle Restaurant and today was no exception. The food, although a little salty, is flavorful and plentiful. Service is warm and welcoming while cocktails are truly worth the price. Bartender Ben is a great host who makes it all so much more enjoyable. Please stop by and try it. You won't regret it!

Decent food served on inconvenient serviceware by marginally pleasant server. No attention to accoustics in the design leave a very noisy dining area

Service was very good, and the food is always amazing, first time I had the chicken sandwich, juicy chicken, on a roll with spicy sauce and Cole slaw, the only negative comment is the bun, although it is delicious, it's just a bit to large. The spoonbread, greens, and mash potatoes are delicious!

The food was OK. Spoon bread was good. Chicken sandwich not so much. Menu selection is rather minimal. I made the reservation then when we arrived there was no individual table so we had to share a booth. The other gaggle of women talked so loud I could not carry out a conversation with my daughter in town from NY. Very disappointing overall.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. This my second time eating here, and her third. The experience was everything we expected. We had their specialty, a whole fried chicken. This chicken is exceptional. Very tasty, and their sides are just as delicious. We had the collard greens, Mac & cheese, and kale and sausage appetizer. We added a shrimp and grits side that they made up for us. We were a party of four and had just one side of each, which was enough. We also left with some chicken to take home, as the pieces are large. I was also extremely pleased with the final bill! Great time!

Food is delicious comfort food. It took awhile for the bartender to notice when our drinks were empty, and pretty sure she forgot to ring in our food, but it all ended well.

We’ve been here quite a few times and love the food. This time we had terrible service. The waitress was not attentive whatsoever and was very irritating to listen to. Disappointed, but will keep coming back to enjoy the food.

The drinks were great. Food was ok. We sat at a communal table for our date night out without our kids. It was with a mom and her intrusive 2 kids. The waitress forgot my second drink and brought it after eating and ready for the check.

Food was well cooked. Sides were good. Chicken was okay. Flavor was missing for me. Wife & I got BlackBerry lemonade (Non Alcoholic) which was 100% tart. Price is good for a downtown restaurant but just wasnt that good for me to come back.
