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

There will probably be a long wait, but you will enjoy the variety of food choices. This is a very loud and bustling sports themed restaurant. The food is very good and the staff is great. The specialty is the string like fried onions, but I found them to be too greasy.

Good place for lunch - variety of lunch menu items - wait staff attentive and never let you go dry or hungry. It may get crowded but there is plenty of room to accommodate everyone.

If you're looking for healthy, don't go here. However if you're looking for great tasting comfort food or a sports bar, this is the place. Wait staff is pleasant. Atmosphere is a large old townie bar with auxilliary restaurant.

The four of us hit Gabby Goat based on most of the reviews. It was a little hard to find and further from I-57 than we anticipated but not more than a few minutes. We expected a regular restaurant but it seems more like a pub (pool table included) that serves food, so don't expect a formal type dining experience.... More

Stopped in for Sunday breakfast on our way out of town. The biscuits and gravy were awesome. I enjoyed the corned beef special. Looks like a fun place to be. They have an heated patio, karaoke, and dinner specials.
