“Swiss steak”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

A very interesting property which we visited with a group of friends for lunch and a tour of the tavern and "tunnels".
The problem with this lunch was that this place is supposed to be known for their unique Swiss Steak. Which is NOT swiss steak at all, but some kind of Salisbury steak, aka ground something beef (?), which was inedible.
To their credit, they offered to get me another meal, but since my friend's portion of pork loin was quite large, we opted to share that instead.
But beware the "Swiss steak".

“one of the best meals I've experienced in the nw part of Ohio”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

In a quant little town of Hanoverton Ohio in Columbiana County is a 5 star restaurant and Inn, 7 sitting areas, and 5 rooms to choose from, but it may take a while to get a reservation for an overnight stay. The food was amazing, Our party had Veal Lasagna, Chicken, and I had Pork Cutlet that was excellent. It was complimented by mashed sweet potatoes with a hint of cinnamon, as well as a mixed vegetable side. The atmosphere was helped by the Building and it's furnishings, the food, not to mention the service was exceptional. It is an above most Restaurants ,so one must remember, that it is also more expensive than most, Yet it is worth every dollar that was spent on this extraordinary meal. Well worth your time and Money !!

“Historic and great food”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

Went to this restaraunt for anniversary and had a great meal. I would suggest reservations because this place fills up fast and once you have there food you will know why. The service staff are very knowledgable and timely. The history alone is worth the trip, but dont forget to try the deserts

“Fine dining in an 1837 historic inn replete with historical memorabilia.”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

The Spread Eagle Tavern is of the finest places to eat within a hundred miles of the small village of Hanoverton, Ohio in which it is located. The tavern features American cuisine of the highest order, large fireplaces to warm oneself from the harsh winds of winter, historical memorabilia from the local area, part of the underground railroad, and numerous mementos from the Republican party. The latter is due to the fact that the proprietor is also the head of the Republican party in Columbiana county. The mementos are by no means propaganda or extreme as some less enlightened reviews have suggested. Hanoverton is close to no where so be prepared for a long drive through the beautiful rolling farmlands of Columbiana county Ohio.

“Atmosphere and food worth the trip”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

Ambiance AND great food what an outstanding combo for this quaint historical tavern! Location is a bit tough to find so don't give up because you won't be disappointed. Cozy fireside seating and excellent food with a nice variety make this one of our favorite spots. Crabcakes compare to those we get on the eastern shore and much less of a drive.
