We visited the Screamen Eagle on a Tuesday night with a party of five. We have visited the restaurant several times over the past couple of years. If you are a first timer, you need to know that you will need to seat yourself, go up to the counter to order your food, and get your own plates, silverware, napkins, drinks, etc. The only "service" provided by the restaurant comes with the delivery of food to your table. Beyond that, you are on your own. If you know that going in, you will be much less likely to be disappointed.
As we had been to the restaurant before, we knew to expect this. What we did not expect was the surly attitude of both the woman taking the food order at the counter and the man taking the beer orders at the back of the house. Perhaps the negativity was the result of the fact that their cable service was out of order and all credit card transactions had to be done by a very slow dial up process. Regardless of the reason, customers should not be made to feel that their questions are an unnecessary imposition.
The good news is that the food is always very good. On this evening, we tried three different styles of chicken wings - medium, sweet & sour, and masala. This is the second time we had the masala wings and they remain our favorite.
We ordered a large basic pizza - cheese and pepperoni. The pizza was perfectly prepared with incredibly flavorful pepperoni.
FInally, the table shared orders of jalapeno poppers, mushrooms, and nachos. The peppers and mushrooms were excellent. The nachos were plentiful if not exceptional.
During the entire time we were at the restaurant, our experience was enhanced by the excellent music being played on the outdoor deck. I believe the artist was Paul Case. He was great. Good friends and great food accompanied by the music of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, John Prine, etc. You cannot go wrong with that!
