This is the third Eagle restaurant we have tried - Cincinnati first a few years ago then Columbus and Indianapolis on this trip. Great food and great people. I ate the chicken and mac and cheese at all three and it was fantastic across the board. Best mac and cheese ever!! Love the chicken! A must for anyone visiting Ohio/Indiana.

Our go to when we get a craving for fried chicken. Very good chicken. The sides are also good. The cornbread in a skillet, and Mac and Cheese are our favorites.

Finally, the service has always been good. Today we had Jason, and he was great.

Highly recommend.

Visited The Eagle on a Sunday which was very busy on Mass Ave. Did not have to wait too long for a table but the bar offered a great place to wait. Good beers and pitchers of everything. The chicken - wow - it was probably the best I have had in a long time. Had collard greens, mac & cheese and cheesy grits. The sides were all very good - collard greens some of the best and grits were nice and spicy. Our waiter was exceptional.

I was geared up to try the best fried chicken around, but we left slightly disappointed. Waitress was quick to greet us and get drink orders along with food order. Food runners brought sides first. We were engrossed in conversation when I realized we still didn’t have our chicken (15-20 minutes later). The tables around us that day after us were already eating their complete meals. Our waitress was no where to be seen. When she arrived ready to bring us our bill we informed her of the missing chicken. She was clearly embarrassed and flustered, she made sure our chicken arrived in a few minutes with apologies. Chicken for dessert wasn’t what we had in mind. It was good fried chicken. The spicy honey added a nice touch. The sides were also good..we had fried and biscuits. I highly doubt this is a typical scenario for them. The ambiance is lovely and the outdoor space is great for a perfect spring day. The restaurant is community seating which makes for quicker seating but also can be challenging for conversation depending on your neighbors. I would give it another shot as there quality of the food warrants it.
