The Old Goat
Food for the most part was great. Two at our table had corned beef hash and the potatoes were a bit under done (crunchy) on one of the entree’s. Blueberry fritters on the bread board were fantastic. Burgers were fantastic. Overall an enjoyable meal.
Server was very pleasant but a little less than attentive, we did need to flag him down for service on two occasions.
Quiet piano music, great food! It’s a great place for food and conversation without having to shout!
I have heard about this restaurant for a while and it is a bit of a hike from where we live so I wanted to make a reservation. I did this through OT. It really didn’t help. We showed up and explained we had a reservation and it was clear we were put on a list as if we just walked in. I was a little frustrated being told it would be 25-40mins before they could seat us.
After that, the service and the meal were great. We shared.a Cheese Whiz app. We ordered lobster bisque. Daughter had chicken, wife had turkey sandwich, and I had shrimp and grits. All fantastic.
We will return for another round.
Everything was great accept we made a reservation and something happened to their computer and all reservations got wiped out so we had to wait. I would have thought a manger might have made an apology but it just felt like tough luck! Offering a free dessert or something would have been an appropriate gesture....
While I was excited to try The Old Goat for the first time, and really enjoyed the ambiance, the food was bland and WAY overpriced. I asked for some Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on my pizza and was given a small container of ‘shredded’ Parmesan that I was charged for. My companion got the Vegetable board, which was very small in quantity for what it cost.
We were both there for the first time, excited to try it, and both left there disappointed and saying we would not recommend it, nor would we choose it again.
Makes me sad, because while there are many restaurants in GR, you can’t always find fun, different ambiance like that. Disappointed.
Reuben was great. I ordered the trout. It wasn’t even a whole filet. It was two small pieces for $23. Disappointed. Bourbon and ginger drink was also a disappointment. Band was amazing!
Our server Emily was wonderful! All four of our entrees were wonderful, inventive and tasty! Can’t wait to bring more friends here!
