“very friendly restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We were told about the Eagle Hotel by Peter and Mary, owners of the Pearl of Seneca Lake and for the past three years have had dinner here our first night at the B&B. The Eagle is a small out of the way restaurant where a lot of the local people go. Even though we are not local we have always been treated like friends and not strangers. People at the nearby tables involve us in conversations and we get good tips on local markets, the best wineries and what produce may be in season. We also learn who may be racing at Black Rock Speedway that weekend. It is always fun and the food is great. Try the merlot mushroom soup, yum!

“Down home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Great local flavor and friendly, hard-working staff. Enjoyed free popcorn and fresh fish dinners. Visited on an understaffed evening and the servers did a great job. Locals recommended it and we were not disappointed. Will return when we're in the area.

“Great gathering place with good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This was recommended by our hotel and it turned out not only 5 minutes away but a charming and lively place. All the food was farm fresh and thought not 'gourmet' it was delicious and a nice variety on the menu. We ate there 3 nights in a row and the third night we were greeted like one of the locals. Just check ahead on the hours of operation because we noticed that many businesses up there have odd days of operation.

“Disappointed.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

While visiting the area, this place was highly recommended to us by fellow guests at our hotel. Upon arriving around 6 PM, we were suprised by the size of the crowd. We waited approximately 15 minutes and noted how the locals appeared to be treated more favorably than us tourists. After being seated, we were forgotten. Waitress apologized for not knowing we were there. We both ordered the Mushroom Merlot Soup, strip steak, salad and potato. Soup was excellent! Unfortunanetly our meal was served before were were finished with our salad. My steak was undercooked and grisly to the point of unchewable but my wife's was OK, so we shared hers. When we finished our meal our waitress never came back, although we we did see her serving other tables. Another server came over when she saw that we were unattended. She was very nice and seemed like she cared! When I told her of the condition of my steak (and she saw it half chewed on my plate), she immediately appologized, picked up the plate and showed it to the chef. She returned shortly after with our bill and explained that we were not charged for the steak. Our original waitress never did return. Other than the soup and the second waitress, we were not very impressed.

“Food in Himrod, NY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Our summer home is on Waneta Lake..not far and a scenic drive to the Eagle Hotel... The food there is original and excellent food. We had a seasonal summer squash soup this past week that was so creamy and delicious. The fish on Fridays is an excellent review... as are the club sandwiches for lunch... the crew is friendly and the place is very clean... A wonderful surprise in a little upstate town of Himrod,NY. Lots to see as you pass Amish and Mennonite farms and fresh produce stands in the summer...
