Went for restaurant week. I am not a big diner sort of a person, but the food was great. I had the tuna melt, and the sandwich was amazing. My parents and husband had the restaurant week menu, and they all liked their meals. The first course was great. I can't rate diner food as 5 star cuisine, but it was really, really good.

Our group of 6 had to wait about 15 minutes for our reserved table, but they were very apologetic and even brought us 2 complimentary appetizers as soon as we sat down. We appreciated it but we’re so starving when we got them that we chowed and I think became too full for our dinner. The addition of hot crab dip (so good!) didn’t help. Our meals were good but not the “yumminess” I was hoping for and have had in the past. We will still go back and I would recommend as fun place with something for everyone.

The Little Goat needs to step-up on their service; especially having servers greet a table much more quickly. On my 3rd visit, it took the server 10 minutes to greet us. He attempted to walk away w/out asking if we wanted to place a drink order; we stopped him and said we wanted to place a cocktail order as we had been waiting. It took him another 10 minutes to bring 1 Diet Coke & 3 glasses of wine. We waited 20 minutes technically for a drink. HORRIBLE SERVICE!

The Little Goat was not full; plenty of open tables at 6 pm on a Saturday night and there were servers standing around the service station. Guests should not have to wait 10 minutes to be greeted or asked if they would like a drink.

Food was delicious and service was great. Our waitress even was helpful in giving us a lot of details regarding food other people were having that we saw. Barista was really detailed and clear when telling me about a coffee offering. Flavors were wonderful. VERY kid friendly. The kids mac and cheese was great and my other daughter loved her waffles!

The food was good but not great. We are a few nights earlier at the sister, Duck Duck Goat. It is Chinese and thought the overall concept, atmosphere and food was better. The Diner was good, service was great, but the restaurant is looking a bit tired and was expecting their diner food to be more elevated than advertised by others who had been. I really wanted to eat at Little Girl and a Goat, but unable to get reservations. Perhaps we will try it on the next trip with more lead time. I would go back to Duck Duck Goat, but not Little Goat.

The food was amazing. The three favorites at our table were the rueben, the messy fries and the chili. We’ll be back. Maybe tomorrow for breakfast!

Sat at the counter. No place for our coats. Wonderful to see all the food go by. The scallion pancake with pork belly was the best. The Japanese pancake we can’t remember the name of was excellent. The shrimp and grits was not the best. I’ve had much better in Florida and New Orleans. Great server. Will definitely return for other options. The Fried chicken sandwich looked incredible.

We went for brunch and the food was great but the only reason i wouldn't recommend little goat is the price of the mimosas - $40 for a liter of mostly orange juice is ridiculous when you can go get bottomless somewhere else for the same price.

Delicious food in fun casual diner atmosphere.
But beware- it's way too easy to finish a carafe of mimosas!

Love the food at Little Goat. Have eaten here many times. Had the bahn mi on masa chips, was delicious. Highly recommend the new Goat Tracks Sundae. It's big enough for several people and a peanut butter lovers dream.

I ordered the patty melt, which was so messy to eat and more of a hassle. Nothing special, would never order it again. My brother ordered the BBQ Burger and he was not happy either. He said it was way too spicy. French fries were good, but I doubt I'll return for a second try.

We’ve made multiple trips to Little Goat and the food never disappoints. This time, we brought a niece from out-of-town to brunch. She loved the waffles, latte and experience.

You get pretty huge portions and most of the dishes are shareable. Good quality food and quite reasonable prices. It wasn’t noisy and the music level was low enough to hear each other.
