Walking around the village for hours..you get hungry. Stop by the Eagle Tavern, and step back even farther into history than you already are! The food that is prepared are recipes from 1800's era cookbooks. There are no "separate" tables, meaning you and your party could end up sitting with strangers, but that's what makes it so interesting.

Everything is fresh, and prepared using ingredients that are grown inside the village. Your straw is a noodle, the food is great, and it's overall an amazing experience. I recommend the bread appetizer, the savory noodles, and the iced tea.

The Eagle Tavern is located in the Greenfield Village at The Henry, and was our first stop during a recent visit. The food is very good, but the dining experience here is what elevates this establishment to a higher level. The staff all dress the part of early settlers, and even act the part in a non-hokey way. Guests sit at communal tables and the lighting is dim from no overhead lighting. The menu is also a throwback to the pioneer days, with plenty of offerings you surely won't find anywhere else. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Greenfield Village.

This venue is part of the Henry (aka Greenfield Village) and is worth a time out to sit and experience. You are transported (not literally) back to the 1800's were things were simpler. You are a traveler at a busy stage coach stop were you will be "staying for a while". The atmosphere is fun, the staff is friendly and the seasonal food is very good. The breads and jams are my favorite!
Ever drink a soda through a pasta straw (no plastic back then)? You will here!
This is a must if you are visiting the Village.

Although this was more expensive than other places in Greenfield Village, we enjoyed the atmosphere of the tavern. The food was plentiful and very tasty. The set-up of this tavern was long tables; another couple was seated at the other end of our table. The servers were very attentive.

Nestled in historic Greenfield Village and more than 175 years old, is the Eagle Tavern serving up an 1800's dining experience. All of the staff are dressed in clothing of the period. You're seated at a communal tables, exactly the way it would have been. You're given a Bill of Fare (menu) that consists of a small selection of reasonably priced dishes, also from that period.

I had the Pan-Fried Cornmeal Crusted Trout, which came with hot and cold vegetables, along with fresh bread. The trout was very good and you get a lot food for your money. The young servers were extremely friendly and busy. As far as beverages go you can get both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. I had a lemonade that hit the spot on a warm day.

This is Greenfield Village's main sit down restaurant and it's a fun one.
