Stopped in for supper. Place was at about 50% capacity. Waitress took our order, brought our bland and tasteless food, and later on dropped the bill off on her way past. No offer to refill drinks. No "how is your food?". Seemed to be offended that we were there somehow. Our tip reflected our experience.

This place has a good selection and food is always good. Probably not the healthiest place to eat but it definitely gets me there a few times a month

Food came timely , service was good but the food wasn't good at all. I've been here before and it was okay so decided to try it again. I was totally disappointed. I don't know if I would go back again.

I've enjoyed every visit I've made to Sreaming Eagle. It's a great place to meet friends. I'm looking forward to trying a Bloody Mary which I've heard is served with a slider (mini hamburger) on a stick.

If you are looking for great burgers and pub food, then look no further. Good beer choices and the absolute best nachos in the Cedar Valley. Live bands frequent the stage and lots of TV's make for an atmosphere that is great for dates or flying solo.

Walked in and the band was awesome. Bar tenders stayed busy and smiled. Food was almost perfect. Atmosphere was friendly and every one having a good time.

Motorcycle themed restaurant, but not a biker bar. They do have bike nights but it is well done and not filled with riff raff. Lunch time is a rush there and the chances of getting in and out in under 45 minutes is going to be tough.

Good bar food. Great burgers and sandwiches. Sweet & sour wrap is my favorite. Lots of TVs for sports events.

We were heading to a Mexican restaurant across the street But decided to grab a few drinks before dinner. It was pretty quiet and we just set ourselves down at a table. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We got a pitcher of beer and an amaretto sour. Pretty good drink. We ordered some jalapeño corn nuggets. Real yummy! We... More

Great atmosphere, decent food. Not much for gluten free or healthy options, but great for bar food, pizza, and appetizers. Downstairs can be reserved for private parties. Frequent bands, very loud and energetic atmosphere
