My first visit to the Yelling Goat was exceptional. With reservations we were seated within minutes; two couples at a 6 top... Plenty of elbow room. Good selection of beer; Lager of the Lakes was refreshing. Lasagna was hearty and extremely flavorful. My wife's pizza...More

The food was delicious. Large servings. Friendly staff and warm atmosphere. Visiting here from Miami. The desserts top of the line.

Ayanidys, Thank you for the review. I am glad you enjoyed the food and the staff and atmosphere was friendly and warm (unlike the weather you probably experienced). Hope to see you your next trip up! Laurie.

I ordered the mango salad and it was delicious! I wish I had tasted it before I added the dressing, because it didn’t even need it. I would have eaten it plain.

Erika, The Mango Salad is spectacular. Probably my favorite, next to the Grilled Chicken Breast with Guacamole, Cheddar and Ranch Dressing. Thank for the review. Hope to see you soon! Laurie

We took our waiter's advice and ordered the Reuben Sandwiches. We were glad we did! The corned beef was the best ever and just melted in your mouth. With a craft beer, it was the perfect meal. On previous visits we tried the pizzas and...More

MA, I, and our dedicated staff appreciate your opinion – as everyone is entitled to one. Our goal is to provide great service, great food and great prices – “irregardless” (to use an informal term) of a patron’s use of discounts and coupons - which...More

Everything I have ordered off Yelling Goat's menu, to date, has been extraordinary and is just what you would expect from a fine restaurant. The entrees are prepared exactly to order. I frequent the Yelling Goat often. Well worth the try.

Our table was very very bright. Too bright for an evening meal. The server was slow and we had to ask for refills. The Cuban sandwich had a few pieces of 'grizzle' in it. The wine was good. Then when we went to pay, they...More

Thank you for the review. We appreciate your patronage. As far as food pricing, we try to keep it skinny. Unfortunately food can be very expensive. I close my eyes at the grocery store check-out. Hope to see you soon. Regards, Laurie.

This restaurant is in my neighborhood. Great food, great beer selection, service is excellent. A little on the pricey side - I couldn't afford to become a barfly here for sure! However, we stop on regularly for drinks or a meal. Weekends are very busy,...More

Thanks for the kind words. As I told the last reviewer, we try to keep our pricing as low as possible. Unfortunately the cost of raw goods continues to skyrocket. As for reservations, you hit the nail on the head. Weekends are wall to wall....More
