About The Goat's Beard
Welcome to The Goat's Beard! Manayunk's newest restaurant and bar.
For the past several months, I've been asking myself, in less than 5 words, "who are we?". I've come up with an an answer: comfortably bold, sustainable American smaller plates/domestic whiskey bar. Well maybe that's not exactly 5 words but at least you're starting to get a picture in your head.
Community is an integral part in everything we do and it's how we think. Local is the fabric of our concept. Sustainability is a very popular term in these times, but we feel it should remain relevant now and forever. With that thought process we chose a native plant to PA as our namesake.
Featuring an all-out extensive domestic whiskey/bourbon menu rivaling any in the state as well as offer a ton of craft beers. Add that to Chef Joel Romano's menu and you'll see his awesomeness plated to your delight and a restaurant that not only does a lil' good, but does it very well

The Goat's Beard Ratings and Reviews
My boyfriend and I came here for New Years Eve. It was great. I had the veggie tikka masala for dinner and we split the baked apple for dessert. Everything was very tasty and the server was very attentive. Overall a great experience and great ambiance for a date/end of year celebration.
They say us right by the back door and it was freezing every time someone came or left. Our waitress didn't check up on us enough. They were out of certain food. Two things ordered were barely touched because they did not taste good (one item way too spicy and the other freezing cold). Our waitress didn't say anything to us about the basically untouched 2 plates of food when she finally came to clear a ton of plates that were left on the table. Wouldn't recommend this place. I would only go back for the hummus, that was delicious!
Favorite Manayunk restaurant. If you're looking to take someone on a date here, ask to be seated upstairs where it is a little quieter. Food is amazing and they have drink and food specials online. I would recommend the steak mac and cheese. I'm not a fan of gnocchi and it's actually amazing here!
The food is very good, and the live music was an excellent guitarist/singer - on a Sunday night! I really enjoyed the warm and friendly atmosphere. It was my husband's birthday, and the staff remembered to put a candle in his brownie dessert. Our server was very friendly and did a great job. We plan to return!
We were seated on the 3rd floor in a small room that only had one large farm table. The first floor has the bar and was quite busy and noisy so we were happy there were other seating options. Our server was very attentive but not intrusive. The menu had something for everyone...We agreed that we would go back.
Sunday brunch with the family. Service started out well and then drifted off. Kitchen was extremely slow or so that's what our server stated. Seemed like the delay may have been intentional to entice you to order additional beverages.
Nice menu and interesting choices of beer and alcohol.
The staff was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was warm and vibrant. The food was great. Meat and Seafood was perfectly cooked. It was slightly on the pricier side, but they seem to use higher quality ingredients than most places, so not budget friendly, but worth it for a special occasion!
They describe themselves as "an American whisky bar with elevated bar food" and I think the description fits well. Their selection of whisky was good if a bit heavy on the PA sourced distilleries. As far as the food, their steak mac and cheese was outstanding. The appetizer wings were also good, but a bit salty for my taste. Great, friendly service. Certainly a place you can call a go-to spot.
Every time we have family in town we take them to the Goat's Beard. They have the best burgers and their Steak Mac and Cheese is to die for. We absolutely love this place. It has a comfortable atmosphere and you can go casual, or dress up for a date night. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Manayunk or even Philadelphia for that matter.
We waited about 15 minutes for the hostess who was not at the station. Several waiters walked by but did not offer to find or notify her we were there.
We were sat in the bar area and waited for a someone to take our order. About 10 minutes later a waitress came. We had been there a half hour at that point. They were out of 3 items we had planned to order and due to diet restrictions we we left with an egg on French fries! It was an odd meal. We waited another 30 minutes for the food. Which had been sitting a while. It was not that God but we were starving.
Would not choose to go back.
Overall the Goat's Beard was good, the one downside was that the air conditioning is not sufficient for very hot days. The food was good, and the service was fine--I would recommend this as long as you don't go on a day where the temperature reaches over 80 or so because the little wall units that they have are insufficient.
This was put first time at this restaurant, a real Manayunk gem! Justin, our server was superb, very knowledgable about the menu, and provided good suggestions. Loved the Tues night whiskey flights for $10.00, and the fresh fish salad was amazing, bass with perfectly crispy skin served over deliciously fresh salad greens. We will certainly be back soon.
We met a friend for brunch who lives in the area and wanted to try something different. We ordered the cheese plate and it was not c omparable to those served in Center/South Philly for the same price. My impression that this was regular bar food with a perceived farm to table twist, but it was just really bar food. This could have all been fine if we felt that any of the staff was overly interested in our well being. It took a long time for cocktails to come out, it was impossible to get our server's attention to get the bill (the next table commiserated on having the same issue with us), and they just seemed to not care that we were there.
As a vegan, there was not much on the menu as-is for me. I chose the only veganizable entree: a vegetable napoleon (hold the cheese). It was delicious! I also very much enjoyed the hummus/tabouli appetizer. So while the restaurant doesn't necessarily open its doors to vegans, once we're there, we can enjoy a delectable meal.
I went with adult son for lunch. Started with hummus and tabouli app. Very large portion and really delicious. Son had fish tacos that he raved about. I had goat burger that was good, not special. Best part of experience was Malinda our server. She was professional, energetic, extremely helpful and pleasant. We would definitely return.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a reservation for 5 but at the last minute had another person join. Although they had our high top set for 5, the hostess was able to re-arrange for another seating. Our waiter was funny and very helpful. He gave us good recommendations for food (not all followed) and all of us enjoyed our dinner. We were celebrating our daughter's move to the area and he was full of tips for Manyunk. We will be back!
We had a really great dinner. The food was wonderful. We got a table outside which was nice as we had heard that the bar area can be noisy. The staff was very friendly, but service was a bit slow. That was our only negative and it really didn't bother us as we were just there to have a relaxing dinner. We will definitely return.
My husband and I dined here over the weekend. We had a great time. The service was excellent. My husband asked for a recommendation from the bar list, and the server was very knowledgeable in what they had on the menu. I ordered a cocktail as well, and it was delicious. My husband had their signature burger and I had the brunch burger. We both ordered it cooked medium, and were very happy to see that they were both cooked consistently. The flavor was amazing. An overall great value. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. I wished there were a few more items available at the time we were dining. The options for brunch were limited.
Food and service were very good. It was a little loud for me, especially as the night progressed and a party spilled out to the bar area where we were seated. I would request a table away from the bar next time. Lamb chops and Vegetable Napoleon were excellent. Banana ice cream desert was amazing.
Second time there and the meal and drinks were equally as good as the first visit. Nice selection of cocktails, beers, wines and whiskeys. Can't go wrong with any of the food choices. Some have a little more spice than others so ask if that is an issue. Parking right on street, but we were there on a Sunday. Desserts delicious also. A little pricey, but worth it for quality and quantity.
Absolutely delicious food, the chicken I had might be the juiciest that I have. I would definitely go back. The only slight issue and this wasn't even an issue is that the service was kind of slow but nothing that would keep me from not going back. Definitely would go to again.
