The French Goat was a lovely restaurant in an old home and has been beautifully restored. The covered porch would be a wonderful place to have a cocktail before entering the restaurant.

The interior was divided into nicely decorated rooms with soft yellow paint, white trim, and colorful paintings. There were several sized tables in each of the rooms. The bar was great. It was an old wooded one with a marble top. The opposite wall was wallpapered with with drawings of goat faces.

The lunch menu for our group of friends included a choice of a soup or salad, chicken salad, a burger, or quiche, and a lemon or chocolate dessert. Everything was prepared and presented beautifully.

The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The owner came to the table and spoke with us.

This restaurant was everything I had hoped for and more!

Thank A T

Excellent Chef! Good selection of food and wine. More for adult Dinning. Limited seating, so recommend reservations. If in Lewisburg you need to try it.

A real surprise to find authentic fantastic French food in a cute little tourist town. Product was fresh and high quality. The classics; French Onion soup, moules, steak Au poivre, are better then when they attempt the inventive; duck with udon noodles. Decor is very fresh and inventive, service was very gracious and friendly.

Celebrate an occasion, a success, a future goal; celebrate a friend, a new acquiantance, family, love; but celebrate here. We (three of us) celebrated a graduation from and loved our evening. A short wait for seating allowed introductions to the bar, alcohol, menu choices, as well as, the rich atmosphere at French Goat. While our table initailly wobbled, the waiter noted and on hand and knees removed the instability; details matter here. While prices may exceed other Lewisburg options, and match major city pricing, there is both a reason and rational for ranking #1 by TA. For fine dining in a cool small WV town, this is the place. You may not need reservations, but consider them anyway to assure a fine evening of enjoying whatever you choose.

This is a quaint restaurant with excellent food. We had dinner there on Saturday night and brunch on Sunday morning. The menus were diverse and everything was great — creative, fresh ingredients and excellent service.
