We start with free range, all-natural Amish chicken. It’s brined, dredged, then dropped into custom-built fryers. It's got a little kick and is served with our house-made hot honey. But we don't stop there - Southern-style sides grace our menu, craft beer flows through our taps, and Blues music pumps through our speakers. At The Eagle, it's all about flying right, eating bird, and curing the Blues.

I gave overall a 3 because we were seated by the door and every time the door opened cold air would blow all over our food.

I love this place! I usually get the Bourbon Punch, chicken, kale salad, greens and cornbread. Delicious every time! Tried the Chips & Sausage Dip and the Hush puppies which were very good! I'll be back! 😃

We have ate at The Eagle several times, and never have had a bad experience. This time however the chicken tasted different, it's usually seasoned very well and crispy but not this time. I'm not sure if there's a new cook or what the reason is. The server was awesome, the sides were awesome, and the atmosphere was awesome. We will definitely be back again to try the chicken. I would still highly recommend The Eagle.

Loved our server and the food. Everything was priced right for the quality and portion size. The only issue I had was two instances where the hostess stand individual was incredibly rude. He obviously didn't want to be there and had no patience at all. But otherwise, it was a wonderful experience.

The chicken and Mac and Cheese are awesome! The mashed potatoes are awful though, which is such a disappointment when you are eating fried chicken. They somehow manage to be runny and lumpy at the same time, with no flavor. And the biscuits are just doughballs with no flavor as well. Stick to the chicken and mac and cheese.

We were just there for dinner (not drinking), so my review is based on a dining experience. With all the hype over this place, I just expected more. The fried chicken is ok, but nothing spectacular. We had a variety of items: sandwiches, salads, sides, and appetizers. Honestly, the collard greens and the mac & cheese were the items we enjoyed the most. Everything was just kind-of average. (We had the same thoughts about the one in Cincinnati, so I guess I'm just not a fan of the menu/recipes here.)

We love the Eagle and go there whenever we are in the area. Friday night there were 2 bartenders, one male, one female. We sat down and were greeted by the female bartender. She was very pleasant and friendly. We ordered the sausage and kale dip, and requested some celery since I am on a special diet. She said no problem, I’ll make it happen. While eating, the male bartender, who prior to that had not said a word to us, came and said do not come back and say we served you celery because it won’t happen again. That’s for the bar only. Very rudely and walked away. Then a little while later there were a few girls seated next to us. He came over and asked what he could get them. They had their phones in their hands but looked at each other to ask what they should get. He waited a moment then said “I’ll come back when your finished with your phones”. I was shocked. We will not come back when he is there, and to be honest the experience left a bad taste so not sure we will be rushing to come back. They were not busy, he is just rude. I am a manager in service industry and would not employee someone with that arrogant nature.
