The Eagle Brook Saloon in Norfolk, Mass. recently brightened the day of thousands by announcing it would reopen its popular southwest-of-Boston restaurant on Thursday, Sept. 24.
On its Facebook page, The Eagle Brook stated in a September 18 post that the reopening will start with takeout only. Customers can order by phone at 508-384-7312 or online at eaglebrooksaloon.com/. The menu is also available to view on Facebook and Instragram.
Eventually, the Eagle Brook Saloon plans to reopen for indoor dining, slowly phasing in with safety precautions in place, according to the post. This is great news after “The Brook” had closed its doors in mid-August 2020, with the exact future of the restaurant unknown.
The Eagle Brook Saloon has been in business 39 years and is beloved for its unique Western saloon-meets-family-friendly dining atmosphere. Some of its more popular items: pizza, wings, steaks, chili and Eagle Brook ales.
I know I speak for legions of others by saying that the Eagle Brook Saloon’s reopening is truly heartwarming. Locals have come to love this restaurant for its fun, one-of-a-kind atmosphere, populist menu with outstanding comfort foods, the long-time friendly staff and owner Chuck Horne — one of the nicest small business owners you’ll ever meet. They are a special group with the rare ability to connect with their customers. It is a place that so many feel a genuine connection to — the fact that it is reopening gives all of us a little good news in an otherwise crummy 2020.
Personally, I know we will be giving the Eagle Brook our business to help support them during this Pandemic. In addition to the excellent food, atmosphere and nice people there, the past memories of eating at “The Brook” on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, part of my bachelor party. birthday celebrations and “just because” fuel the longing to keep coming back. The memories can be forever embraced but the future, also.
Congratulations, Eagle Brook Saloon. I regard you as the restaurant equivalent of a close friend who deserves the very best. We will be rooting for you constantly from the heart, mind and palate!
