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

Was staying in town and saw a ad in the hotel room for a "biker? bar. It was very far from a biker bar. It is a Disney version of a biker bar. It's nice for what it is but it is not what it was advertised to be.

Thank Keith C
