Last week, Matthew and I got a chance to check out the brand new Wild Eagle Steak & Saloon in Broadview Heights.
Brought to you by the same folks who run the Wild Eagle downtown, this takes the best parts of that concept and makes them event bigger. The Inebriation Station (AKA, the wall of serve yourself craft beer) of course is part of the Broadview Heights location.
If beer isn’t your thing, there are plenty of craft cocktails to try or you can grab yourself a Boozy Boot, filled with delicious (and sneakily boozy) libations.
There’s also a huge game area, with shuffleboard, duck pin bowling, cornhole, and more. This isn’t your average cheesy arcade. The space is sleek and a great place to hang out before or after dinner.
Speaking of dinner, we got an expansive tour of the menu from Chef Nelly Buleje, also of Adega. We started with an appetizer portion of the pork belly & mac balls. Mac & cheese is panko-breaded and fried, then topped with house-rubbed pork belly.
This is a whole big bowl of insane deliciousness!
We also tried the double barrel shrimp, which packed a flavorful heat, and the sweet potato nacho tots, which are a savory combination of fabulous comfort foods!
For entrees, we sampled three delicious choices. The Nashville Fried Chicken is pounded thin, double breaded, and topped with Nashville spices and country gravy.
The chicken was amazingly tender for being so thin and the spices and gravy were so flavorful!
We also tried the ribeye, which was well-prepared and topped with delicious maître d’ butter.
We somehow found room to try the award-winning Sooey Sunrise burger, topped with sunny side up egg, maple-glazed pork belly, and smoked Gouda.
Now I know why my vegan friend refers to me as her most carnivorous friend. But, boy, everything was so good that it was worth the meat sweats!
We ended our evening with chocolate cake and banana pudding. So sweet!
A lot of the dishes and drinks at Wild Eagle have a distinct southern flair. The music is country and rock, the vibe is fun, and the food is accessible while still being chef-driven.
This is a welcome addition to an area saturated with chain restaurants. It’s also a perfect stop on your way down to Blossom for a concert, which is when we stopped in. And on Saturday nights, come for dinner and stay for live music from 9pm-1am.
