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.

This was my first time! I’ve always heard great things about this place so I wanted to try it. My food was not hot like it was sitting too long before getting to the table! The collards were everything! The Mac was overrated but our server was nice

Our first time at Eagle OTR and it did not disappoint! First, the service was spot on, thank you Rebecca, our server, you made our visit super special. The food was excellent, the fried chicken was hands down the best we've ever eaten. Would highly recommend for anyone who likes southern cuisine or just loves fried chicken!

We were just a little disappointed that we had reservations, yet we had to wait and it was rainy outside today. And the hostess was not very enthusiastic about people coming inShe did not make you feel welcome at all very dry.


Alexis was our server and she was very nice energetic and very happy, even though she was wearing a mask you could tell that she was smiling the entire time when she came to our table. The service was very good!!!!

So the only thing that was disappointing was the hostess not an ideal person to have in the front of the house. It was a little chilly today and the doors were open so that took away from the ambience. And the chicken was a little over done but we did not say anything, as I am one not to send food back.

The service was not good at all. The manager was extremely uncaring and not professional. The food was a little too spicy for my 6 year old. I had asked if we could order plain noodles. We waited and ate our entire meal. The waitress never came check on us, my daughter never received her food. We waited a little longer before I cancelled the order as we were all completely finished with our meals. I asked politely to speak to the manager. He was not helpful at all, extremely arrogant and made me feel like I was the problem. We will not be returning nor will I recommend this place. Even though everything else was amazing customer service is #1 to me. Sadly this has fell to the wayside.

Great food, service and atmosphere. The only complaint I would have is we made reservations for 3 people and the table we sat at was definitely for 2 people. Our waitress barely had enough room to put all of our food and drinks on the table.

New to Cincinnati, we decided to go here after reading so many wonderful reviews. We were not disappointed! Our server, Antoine, was a delight and we took his recommendations for menu items (1/4 chicken, Chicken BLT, mac & cheese, collards, & spoonbread). We're pretty light eaters so brought half the sandwich, the collards & the spoonbread home for next day's lunch. Flavours are spot on and we loved everything, all served up in a nice atmosphere. Of all the places we've tried, this is one that will definitely see us again.

The food was really good, but service was the worst I’ve ever had. The waitress was nice, but she was awful as in checking on us and making sure we had everything we needed.

This place specializes in comfort food. Not a particularly extensive menu but what they offer is well executed. Portions of sides aren't huge but overall value is good so I encourage you to order a large sample and try many things. Grits, spoon bread, fries, sausage and kale dip, and hush puppies were all very good. For entree's we had the fried chicken in various forms and the grilled cheese...all were nice twists on a classic.

The drink list is also not extensive but all the cocktails are well executed. The bourbon list is middle tier, the beer list maybe slightly better.

The service was very good. Really very good.

It was noisy and I wouldn't describe the atmosphere as special but its fine.

So in summary, a focused menu with very good comfort food, excellent service, and overall a good value. More of a casual mean out with friends kind of place vs. a date night kind of place.

This was my first time back in about a year and I was a little disappointed to see that my favorite menu item, the pork sandwich, is no longer an option. Aside from that, the food was great and service was fantastic.

The fried chicken is something straight outta your dreams, so good. Juicy, super flavor, and that spicy honey dipping sauce is outta this world. The sides, get the grits, yum. And hope everybody’s friend Ryan serves you, dude was on it. Go there and enjoy, we’ll be back much sooner than this last visit, see you there!

Food was amazing! Chicken, mashed potatoes, and Mac and cheese were the best I have had in a very long time. Even though we made reservations we were still seated by the bathrooms at a small table that required one person of our party to sit on a bar stool. It was busy so our server was not very attentive, overall we would go back for the food.

Always enjoy a trip to the Eagle. I'd recommend reserving a table just because it's always pretty busy. We sat outside and Trevor who was taking care of us was fantastic. He was pretty slammed with tables but never kept us waiting. Food was awesome and so were our drinks.
