This is our favorite local restaurant. Expect a wait if you are going on a Friday night. Friday is all you can eat Catfish. I'm not usually a fan of Catfish but this is exceptional. Lightly breaded and prepared perfect.. The dipping sauce is excellent. Not your regular tarter sauce. Their regular menu is great with lunch and dinner specials.... More

Everything we order is always so good. We love rib night every Thursday. One of my favorites is the Steak bites and the sweet potato waffle fries with a delicious dipping sauce. Their burgers are extra special

Our server was inattentive, the nachos weren't as good as stadium style. Fake cheese sauce, a lot of big chunks of yesterday's lettuce. We found a few crumbs of chicken and 3 shreds of cheddar. We did like the Mac and cheese bites and the beer was good.

Hello. First off thank you for stopping in the Goat but I'm sorry it was not a pleasant experience. If possible I'd like to know what day and time you were in so I can review the cameras and discuss with the server where they went wrong. We typically are spot on with service but I also have four new... More

Stopped at the Goat while driving west across 70 on a Friday night. Waitress was friendly and efficient. Cross service by other waiters was good and ensured the food arrived hot. We had the catfish po boy and the philly cheesesteak. Cheesesteak was good but the catfish was excellent. The rest of the menu looked good - better than typical... More
