Local Restaurants: Eagles Restaurant and Lounge

When the former Oscar’s Restaurant and Lounge was purchased in November by Ballard Management Group, the ownership team had a vision to create improvements that would truly bring the restaurant back to life. Throughout the past 30 years, Oscar’s had developed a strong following so when the new restaurant closed for renovations for two months, customers were left wondering what to make of these changes. But when the Eagles Restaurant and Lounge opened up two months ago, it was clear the ownership is working hard to meet these customers’ needs by providing fresh, high quality food – at reasonable prices.

The restaurant’s owners/operators are proactive in learning more about what customers want to see on the menu. Although much of the menu is new, the team retained some of the previous restaurant’s most popular dishes. The owners have recently heard many requests for Oscar’s popular Veal Liver dish, which may end up as a permanent item on the menu.

The Eagles specializes in high-quality, fresh food – never frozen and always at a fair price. The restaurant’s owners especially recommend the Filet Mignon, which, at $24, is a great price for a high quality 8-ounce steak. All seafood and meat is prepared fresh in-house, and vegetables and produce are often sourced through local farmers.

The restaurant also features private dining rooms and a banquet hall that can accommodate up to 300 people. The sports bar features seven 60-inch televisions, creating ideal March Madness viewing opportunities.

The Eagles is also offering daily happy hours from 3 p.m. to close, along with live music on Thursdays and Fridays from 6-9 p.m.

An official ribbon cutting celebration will take place April 10 to officially welcome the restaurant into the community. And keep an eye on Eagles Restaurant and Lounge this summer, when it will be hosting a number of classic car shows in its parking lot.

Eagles Restaurant and Lounge is located at 8736 S. Hosmer St.
