good food, good service, good time – Eagle st. is a fun place with great food. They have all my favorite bar food only better (and a lot more). Nice service and reasonable pricing. If you like a crowd try a night when there is a concert or a hockey game. I like it a little less busy so I tend to stick to the "non event nights". My two favorite things have to be the 'blue cheese burger' and the 'artichoke chicken sandwich'. The only bad thing I can think of is that the artichoke dip used to be the best ever, now it's just o.k..
Very bad – Bad food, bad service, bad owners. If this place wasn't across the street from the Xcel they would have gone out of business long ago. Don't go there, it is the worst place to go on West 7th Street.
Great Grilled Tuna Burger – This is a fun place to hang before the Wild game. Their Tuna Burger is great - well, most of the time. One time it was overcooked (I had asked for it seared), but the rest of the time it was wonderful. Their wine selection could be better, but is better than most bars I guess.
Crowd is lively, they have nice plasma TVs, good music too.
I'll go back – Nice atmosphere, tasty food, reasonable prices, good service. Had a group of 7 for lunch, and with people's tight work schedules a few people had to pay separately and leave early, and the waitress was very accommodating. One nit-picky thing is that my chef salad was ridiculously large! There's no way I could have eaten it all, even though it was my entire meal. Everyone spoke highly of the french fries.
boris – I hesitate to publicize this, but Eagle has the best burger in town. I've done Matt's, Lyon's, Ike's, The Convention, Whitey's and the $14 Kobe beef burger at Mission. For my money, Eagle's Kid Kann is the best around. Sometimes crowded with amateur drinkers before a concert, but usually pretty laid back.
Good food, snotty service – We sat in the basement area, which is a nice space to have because many people don't know about it and it isn't as crowded as the upper level. They have a full bar & several tables to eat at, along with one TV. Only problem: it's pretty cold down there...bring coat.
The food (Tuna sandwhich, burger) was good, especially the fries. Avoid the "side salad" which, although the dressing is good, is cafeteria-quality.
The problem was the bartender, who was snotty & impatient...tried to be cool, but was aloof & not friendly. While he was efficient, he acted like he was a Top Gun. When I asked what kind of wines they had, he said, "Red & White." When I asked if they had a list, he said, "It's upstairs." Not exactly bend-over-backwards service.
The plastic menus were extremely dirty & sticky!
Finally, the prices are a bit high.
The Eagle is EXCELLENT! – What makes the Eagle a fabulous place is the friendly atmosphere and most excellent service. The owners and staff are the best in town! The menu and theme is very clever, the food is delicious, and the happy hour specials rock! Check out the ambience and antique character--it's the most happening spot to be in outside on their patio before an Xcel concert indeed! Overall, the Eagle is a great new addition to the area and a must-go place if you come to downtown St. Paul. :-)
