We accidently stumbled upon this place while we were eagle watching. Needing a room for the night, the staff was helpful, pleasant, and the room was absolutely beyond imagination - perfect. We ate dinner - the ribs were heavenly. We went eagle watching early the next day, and came back and enjoyed their Sunday brunch. It was a wonderful weekend. You can tell this B&B is well cared for and its owner admired by the folks in town. We even met John Stoeckley, who's known for his drawings, there. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. It was reasonably priced compared to the B&B's in St. Charles and Alton...
If I could give it less than one star, I would! My fiancé and I met there over the summer, very excited about possibly having a reception there, as it is a very beautiful part of Missouri and the nearby river views are awesome. We met with the owner who bragged about their 'excellent' French cuisine. The owner seemed pretty insistent that we stay for dinner, told us to try certain things on the menu, even though we told her we had a limited budget and we didn't like frois gras. Since she invited us to dinner, we tried the frois gras, which was gross as it is anywhere else in the world... But what bothered us the most was that there was a ROACH in our food. Cooked in my fiancé’s pasta dish!!!! So like any fine restaurant, they offered us, dessert. What kind of restaurant offers free dessert when obviously the patrons are disgusted by the dishes? They did comp his dish, but we paid for the rest of the meal (even though the owner insisted we stay--RUDE and deceiving) we received, even though it went unfinished due to the disgust of the dead bug. Up until that point, we were ready to pay thousands of dollars for our reception. Unfortunately for the roach but fortunately for us, we found out about this nasty, infested place before we gave them money. Also, the selection of wine there isn't all Eagle's Nest...why say you’re a Missouri winery when you have very little and nothing good from our local region?? It turned out to be a far cry from anything I've ever had in France, let alone a local boutique winery! Good thing the restaurant is far up HWY 79 because there is no way it would survive in the STL metro area. I'd be surprised if it's even still there in 6 months to a year. If you do winery day trips, skip this place, it's not worth it.
I HAVE BEEN TO THE EAGLE'S NEST 3 TIMES. THE FIRST TIME MY ORDER WAS WRONG. THE NEXT 2 TIMES WE WALKED OUT BECAUSE WE WAITED 20 MIN AND NO ONE GREETED US LET ALONE WAITED ON US- AND IT WASN'T EVEN BUSY.
We recently moved to Louisiana and have tried to find a restaurant that would appeal to our tastes. Well, we finally found it at the Eagle's Nest!!! Great varied tastes, wonderful service and the most delectable cappacinos that we have found in Missouri! Also a GREAT selection of local and imported wines next door. A very knowledgeable woman gave us delectable samples of some extremely good local wines.
Go to the Eagle's Nest for fine dining and fine wines. And don't forget the cappacino! It's to die for.
