Drove 1 1/2 hours from Pittsburgh Pa. to dine at the Spread Eagle Tavern. Was worth the trip. The service and food were wonderful. The Tavern itself has wonderful history. You must walk around and see all of the rooms. Nice trip into history.
Would we make the trip again? You betcha!
It sits in a little run down dumpy town, maybe in the late 1980's it was a destination restaurant, in the 1990's it was more of a political backdrop ... I'm sad to report that in 2009 it has gone way down hill.... Service is SLOW and staff does not know the menu, PRICE is HIGH, food is mediocre at best, my risotto was like paste and cold, plate presentation is awful and amateur, with flowers used as garnish on every plate! ... Creme brulee was curdled and served with cheap spray whipped cream and raspberry sauce? .... Nothing stands out on the menu and they do not have a signature dish ...you would be better off trying Mezzaluna or the Hart Mansion in Minerva, Ohio ... even Grinders would be better food than Spread Eagle Tavern! ... Don't fool yourself into believing it's a good meal because of price, it's not Ken Stewarts, you don't get what you pay for here.. STAY AWAY!
My wife and I have dined at this restaurant many times. We have experienced excellent service and fine food each and every time. We have also stayed overnight several times. We once stayed overnight along with 2 other couples, my wife's sisters and their husbands, and all had a wonderful time. Hanoverton in autumn is especially beautiful, an evening here would be a memorable experience. We are a Military family (me as well as 3 of our children) and Mr. Johnson offered deep discounts on overnight accommodations. I highly recommend this restaurant and am sure it will become one of your favorites.
The first time I went here was for a company luncheon. The service was great and the food was great as well.
This place is set in a very historic town. Most (if not all) the buildings in this town are as they were (for the most part) back in the late 1800s.
I plan on going back, maybe with my parents or a select group of friends.
a brick taver house built in 1837.....7 dining rooms and 5 guest rooms ...
food cost ranging from $17.00 to $35.00....and you will not be disapointed no mater what you order ...if you travel to the spread eagle tavern...plan on spending the night in one of the beautifull guest rooms .......not a cheap evening out but well well worth the cost
if you travel to the
Be prepared to spend more than just a meal at the Spread Eagle - there is just so much to see and explore! I've dined here several times (the food is always excellent; the wine list & cellar rivals restaurants in California), but my favorite experience was spending the night in one of the guest rooms upstairs. Having dinner, spending the night, and then having breakfast in the morning gave us the opportunity to explore all the memorabilia lining the walls, discover whose names adorned the chairs, and giving us the opportunity to ask detailed questions about the site to greeter (and historian) in the morning. Spending the night isn't cheap, but it is well worth it.
