    We were party of 5. It wasn’t that overly busy. Maybe it was because of Father’s Day with short staffed and in the kitchen also but first off it was almost 20 min sitting without a waitress taking even our drink order when others tables were sat after us and the waitress was there asap. We had to get up and ask for our waitress, Unacceptable! The food for breakfast omelette, pancakes etc took about 45 min. Ridicilous! Waitress acted like no big deal. Stupid! The food wasn’t great and home fries were terrible large cubed potatoes with no flavor. Nothing to brag at all about this place and maybe they should just do a breakfast buffet and make everyone happy with self service. I will not go there again for breakfast brunch.

    My husband and I went here on a date night and decided to take our mother's here for Mother's Day. We all loved the Fainting Goat! Food and drinks are delicious, place is very clean, staff is very attentive and friendly. I'm not sure what days or nights but they have live entertainment so the noise level may be up or down but overall we all thought this was a great place to eat at. You can also dine outside when the weather is nice.

    Overall my experience was great. I came with a group and everyone enjoyed their food. I had the hash brown waffle with fried chicken- it was delicious. My friend had the sausage gravy & biscuits, amazing and some had the Hawaiian french toast & burbon french toast all delicious. Our server did the best she could with have several large parties by herself. So no complaints she was working extremely hard trying to keep up.

    Everything was good but didn’t realize they only serve brunch until 3, although brunch was good. Music was a bit to loud for holding conversations. Waitresses service was attentive. Place was very clean and nicely decorated. I will definitely go back and recommend.

    We took my father here for brunch to celebrate his birthday. We started with the cinnamon roll and mimosa tower. The tower came with fresh fruit; the roll was warm and delicious. For entrees we ordered: chipped beef; scrapple cheesesteak; chicken and waffles; cheesesteak egg rolls; and the breakfast burger. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. Our server (sorry, her name escapes me) was great. She was attentive, but not overly so. My dad was pleased to discover a new eatery he could visit. We would definitely return.

    What a great restaurant! Food, service, and atmosphere top notch. Party of 3 started with a Mojito (very refreshing, not overly sweet) and two Boozy iced coffees (addicting!). Appetizers we shared: potato pierogi (really flavorful, topped with butter and onions), fried pickles (soooo good - pickle retained it's bite and the side sauce was a perfect balance), and the Ridley tots (crispy potato tots with shredded short rib meat on top - holy moly - do NOT MISS this one!). I suspect all the tots are great but it would be hard to beat this one - the short rib meat was so tender and moist and had a great flavor. Mains (we were getting a little full by now but we soldiered through!): Italian chicken sandwich, blackened (chicken was very moist and the roasted peppers worked well), the Goat pizza (goat cheese, mozzarella, prosciutto and arugula - so so good. I finished this the next morning for breakfast and it was still great the day after) and the cheesesteak with provolone (excellent! Huge sandwich - hubby finished it next day for lunch and he said it was just as good as fresh!). Chris was our server and she was AMAZING. Cozy restaurant (also has an outdoor patio in the back), great food and very reasonable prices. This will be one of our favorites!

    The number one thing I remember about The Fainting Goat is that it is LOUD. We went to brunch on a Saturday. The restaurant was not full, there was no band. Every surface is hard so the sound just bounces around. The food was good, the waitress was lovely and the bathroom was clean. Had to sit beside my friend and lean towards her to hear what she was saying. Never had to do that before. I would recommend this to a friend who doesn't care about actually talking to the people they came with.

    We requested outdoor dining in our reservation but called the day of to switch to indoor (it was very hot!) and the restaurant was fortunately able to accommodate us. We had called a few minutes before they opened at 11 and when we arrived at 11:30 everything was set up for our party. The server was very friendly and everyone said their entrees were excellent although most of us couldn’t quite finish them. We did see that the outside are looked really cute with some shaded area and umbrellas on the tables. Maybe next time!

    Great menu options for breakfast/brunch. Looks like it gets pretty busy, so I would reserve a table. Noise/music level a little loud. Environment had a faint scent of bleach, but not bad plus a sign that they clean! Wait staff was very attentive and great. Some of my party got the chicken and waffles and said they were good, but wished there was more on the plate or a Belgian waffle instead of small waffles. Overall a great breakfast/brunch place to try and would definitely go back again.
