Great place. Even when busy it doesn't feel that way, not noisy. Food is always very good! Firecracker shrimp is fantastic! Tacos are great and just enough. Would suggest giving some heat as an option, even just a sauce on the side.

A great little place in a pretty town. We were able to get a later reservation (8:30pm) which we appreciated, were greeted right away, had to wait just a few minutes for our table.
The service was very nice, the drinks spot on, and our dinners delicious.
The ambiance of this restaurant is very comfortable without being too casual. The interior is pretty with a historic flair. We love it.

I had the MaiMai special. The spices and doneness of the fish was perfect. The accompanying veggie medley was also outstanding and a nice surprise of the viggies picked for the mix.

The ambiance and food was excellent. Our server was not very friendly or attentive. We got two tshirts and they were of course added to the bill. The problem I have with this is when they have that system that shows suggested tip amounts by percentage. You should not have to feel obligated to tip those amounts on a bill that has $40 worth of merchandise added to it. I still tipped well based on the food part of the bill, but it was awkward. All in all we would return because the food and ambiance are top notch.

We had been on the road for five days and found this great restaurant. Got in on Mother’s Day and it was amazing. Great food and service. Best place we have been to in a long time. It truly hit the mark for Mother’s Day and is the high point of our trip. Even a nice little gift for the wife for the day.

So glad we chose The Skunk & Goat for our anniversary. The atmosphere was relaxed & quiet. Our waitress was great, prompt & gave the best wine selection when they were out of the one I originally wanted. The food was delicious. Dessert creme brulee was served with a sparkler for our occasion...and was to die for!!! Will recommend to others & will be returning!

We made a reservation and were seated very quickly. We had really good service and the kitchen prepared an appetizer for us that was no longer on the menu. The restaurant manager visited with us and helped make sure we had an outstanding experience. That is why the Skunk & Goat is a favorite, frequently visited local establishment.

We celebrated our anniversary and there was a free dessert with a sparkler. Definitely a place to go if your celebrating. Draft beer and reasonable wine prices. The cobb salad was a bit different and I am not a big fan of unusual salad greens. My partner thoroughly enjoyed his philly cheesesteak sandwich. It was a very nice place to celebrate an occasion, I would go back.

I'm a long time fan of Skunk and Goat, particularly its calamari appetizer. It was lightly breaded and very tasty. The portion I experienced last week was just the opposite, heavily breaded overwhelming the calamari and clumped into a mass rather that its usual separate pieces. Thought you needed to know.

Hi Bob, we appreciate you comments on the calamari. You comments have been shared with our culinary team. We are sure you next visit will be spot on.

First visit and disappointed. My Old Fashioned was unrecognizable . Never received our appetizer ??? My rib steak special was tough and stringy. I couldn't eat it. Now, the loaded baked potato was good . Would have been better if it was hot.
So sorry to be negative. We had heard good things about you. Maybe it was the night . It was a Sunday, afterall.
We may try again but it will be awhile .
Not much bang for our buck.
At this point in time I wouldn't recommed you.

This was the best burger I’ve ever had! My husband got the pulled pork sandwich and was equally impressed. We brought our 2 year old and were a little skeptical bc it’s a ‘tavern’ but it was clean, classy, and family friendly. They had a boaster seat ready and was super accommodating for us. We are for sure going back!

All of the food and drink was phenomenal. Steak cooked perfectly, shrimp dish fantastic, delicious signature cocktail and Skoat-branded beer. The Jameson bread pudding was the perfect cap to the meal. One of those places where you have no issue with dropping more than usual on a dinner for 2. Everything feels hand-crafted and is just great. We couldn't believe how quickly the entrees came out, either. The Skunk & Goat has it locked down. Highly recommended.
