    After a quick google search my wife and I decided that we would try this restaurant. It was a little over a 20 minute drive from the hotel, which was right at our limit. It was more than worth the drive. We wanted a locally owned (not a corporate or franchise restaurant) eatery. This place was cute with quirky but not overdone decor. It has an old bank vault as a side dining room for larger parties. The salmon and swordfish were fantastic. The pricing was good for the quality. Our meals were upper $20 range. The burgers we saw go by looked amazing. I would not recommend for small children. Not much there to keep a small child entertained.

    We have eaten there for lunch and dinner before and had great meals. Brunch was disappointing. The food was not seasoned and flavorless. Will not go for brunch again but will for dinner/lunch.

    While the server was nice she wasn’t super attentive, she forgot to refill my friends drinks a few times. However I felt rather rushed when she barley put down dessert and asked if we were ready for the check. The food was great and we will be back. Hopefully it was a one off.

    Overall a 4/5. But overpriced for similar establishments. After making online reservation, I called to find out if there was a special menu, 2 people there didn't know. It's Mothers day!? So we looked at regular online lunch menu before arriving. Time wasted

    The food was absolutely Amazing the chicken cooked well the sauce absolutely delicious. The only down fall I saw was the server seemed to be alone with a single runner to help him. Even in that case the server was attentive, able to keep up with the room and we didn't wait long at all for our orders to be taken or for our food to arrive. I truely think the company needs more waiters though. I felt bad for him running around so much but he took it great stride.

    We were in North East, PA, on April 8, 2024, for the Eclipse. My husband and I had been to Skunk & Goat a few times over the years. So we knew where to take our group on Eclipse Day! We were pleasantly surprised to find they were open for breakfast. I don’t know if it was just because of the Eclipse or if that’s usual. So we had both breakfast AND dinner there. Everything was wonderful! There was supposed to be 7 of us, but two people backed out last minute. It was their loss to have missed the great meals and service the 5 of us had there (twice!) that special day!

    Food was so tasty. Got the fish and chips and substituted chips for the yummy brussel sprouts. Also enjoyed the mushroom appetizer. Waitress was friendly and helped us decide what to order. Liked the vibe of the place. Did feel a little close to other patrons sitting on the long bench with tables so separate table would have been preferred. Also bought a nice mug to take home. The Skunk & Goat Ale on tap was really good too.

    Had the fish and chips special. There was absolutely no Tate to the dried out pieces of fish. The coleslaw was inedible! The meal was taken off our bill.
