the interior is themed like an old west saloon and it's been that way forever...draught beers are good quality...craft made, don't know who brews but it's not on premises. service at the bar is good and there's a corner bar ambience. I would not recommend this place for it's food, mediocre and uninspired at best....if they ever improved the food the place would rate much higher. So, back to the beer, about 10 on tap and these are pretty much the same brews that have been there for many years but they are pretty good, I recommend the Buzzard's Beak an ESB. This place is worth a visit at least once. For the Boston area it is unique inside.

Great place to have a few pints and food. 2 for 1 pizza every Mon-Thurs after 5pm is an inexpensive way to get a bite with the family. The free pizza is a cheese, but perfect for children.

Food other than pizza is very good. Cool atmosphere with the looks of a saloon inside. My family usually make it our spot every Friday night. Plenty of brews on tap including their own brewed off-site.

The Eagle Brook Saloon is a fine establishment. Hadn't been here in a coupla years, as had my friends, but we always liked the place. The house brews were outstanding. The server told us they were Eagle Brook recipes brewed at Ipswich Brewery. Definitely Ipswich quality. And guest taps of high quality as well - Jack's Abby, Boulder, etc.

I had the Dog Breath Bitter, Oatmeal Stout and Patriot IPA. All very fine ales.

We all ordered bar-type food. Pizza, chili. And it was fine and reasonably priced. The Eagle Brook is a kinda Texas saloon. And sports bar. If I was gonna do some prelims fer a Patriots game, this is where I'd do it.

This is a very nice saloon on rte. 1A. They have about a half dozen or more contract brews with Mercury Brewing Company. I tried the Oatmeal Stout which was very good. One of my friends tried the blueberry ale, and they put fresh blueberries on the bottom of the glass. Another tried the bock beer, another tried the baggy legs light. Everyone seemed pleased. This is probably the best place of its kind in the area and is well worth trying out if you are in the area. As for the food, we only had an appetizer so I couldn't comment on this part of it. The atmosphere is pretty family friendly, in part because it is only a few doors down from an indoor sports facility which is popular with kids.

Stopped here for a late dinner after shopping, looking for craft beer with decent food, reviews looked decent so we tried it.

Pretty good selection of beers on tap, I didn't inquire while I was there at the Saloon, but it looks like they're brewed by Mercury; that would explain why their "Outlaw Oatmeal Stout" was so damn good, it was probably highly rated Ipswitch Oatmeal Stout. So a bunch of Mercury taps, and a pretty good choice of craft and import bottles, though no lack of BMC either.

Atmosphere is cool, this is indeed a very old house with creaky floors and evidence of several remodelings. But upkeep is decent, and kept clean. Motif is generic saloon style to go with the name, with a large bar downstairs with some restaurant seating and more restaurant and a small bar upstairs. Huge TVs everywhere, hard to get away from them if that's not your bag. I imagine they get a big football crowd at the location.

Food was served hot and was perfectly prepared. Salmon Salad had an enormous slab of fish on it, really good. Cheeseburger didn't look great with its conventional bun and stamped bacon medallion, but it tasted delicious.

Price was excessive. Shula's this ain't; yet their prices are, let's say, very profitable. The yummy burger I had would have been bigger and presented better (and with real bacon) at a chain, for the same price. Steaks were stupid expensive, so I passed. Salmon Salad was a fair deal, though.

Server was lame: shooting the breeze while my pint sat empty, bringing me fries when I ordered mashed.

Draught was served ICE cold. I had a really delicious Outlaw Oatmeal Stout, but it was giving me frost bite. Started very roasty, and finished chocolately. Good to the last drop, but even the last swallow was still colder than cellar temp. Have to ding on quality for that even though it was a superb beer. Had their BotM first, it was a forgettable pale ale.

Recommended if you're in the Foxboro/N. Attleboro/Wrentham area--I'd go there again over a Rock Bottom (which I like by the way, that's not a slam)--but not worth seeking out, probably.

I absolutely love the appearance and atmosphere of this place! Looks like a old western saloon. With mirrors and stained glass, old wood paneling and railings. I over heard that it used to be a biker hangout. Must have helped to give it that lived in look. Fresh Brewed Draughts....house brand names... for beer brewed for them by Ipswich/Mercury....9 tap lines. An ESB,a Pale, a Scotch, Dark Ale, Strong ale, Oatmeal Stout, Lager and a light ale that I remember. I had the Dark, Scotch and the Pale, all were tasty and fresh. Nothing startling but refreshing none the less. Pretty diverse menu. I had the beef stew and the Nasty Nachos ( just chips with chesse and japalenos). Every thing hit the spot nicely.
I would suggest this place to anyone who's wife want to shop at the Wrenthem Outlets.

I went here recently with a buddy who has been many times before. But for me, it was my first time. Great location, easy to get to from Rts. 1, 140, 495. Very cool decor with an old-time saloon look to the place inside and out; and the fact that it has an upstairs means that they can certainly get more people in-which is a good thing. The service wasn't anything to write home about-we waited at the front for a while before being seated in the upstairs section. Once there, it took the server quite some time to get around to us and take our orders. On a side note, there were several families seated in our area, which shows the value ratio of the saloon, good prices on food-aveage on beer.

They have their own beer, for which they are known for-I was told by my friend that you can get growlers of their beers downstairs, so I'll have to go back and try that sometime. He had the Blueberry and I had the IPA. Very hoppy, almost english in style, but seemed dry on the finish. Had a couple more for good measure. As predicted, the food was good. Not great, but very good considering the main focus is the beer and atmosphere.

Certainly worth a look see if you're in the area shopping or going to a sporting event at he stadium, and maybe a revisit if you live in the area and are looking for a good place to take the family.

If you are a local than this place is definitely worthwhile. I make a trek a couple times a year.

The old-fashioned saloon decor is nice, though not the cleanest establishment.

The food is average to above average quality for a saloon setting. In addition to the normal bar offerings, Mercury brewing co. supplies some decent beers.

I honestly don’t remember anything about the service, which means it, was neither great nor poor.

Again, a great place if you are local, though I wouldn’t travel too far out of my way to eat there.
