Great Greek-style restaurant

We had grilled chicken breast and souvlaki platters. Both excellent. Atmosphere in Dawson City almost unique to anywhere else we have ever visited, and Drunken Goat doesn't disappoint.... Highly Recommend Cost is as one would expect in remote location, but food quality higher than anticipated.

We ate here while in Dawson on reccomendation of a lot of people....and I honestly can't understand why!! First off, we waited quite a while before our (not very nice) waitress came and took our order. I had the gyro and my hubby had the calamari platter. The gyro meat was obviously store bought, definitely not made in house, and... More

What's not to like - lots of food, good service, good atmosphere. great location right in the heart of Dawson! The Greek salad was good, the lemon chicken breasts excellent, the mixed platter for 2 was huge and excellent.

Why not try a Greek meal whilst in Dawson, we thought! We were glad we did. We had the $64 set menu for two, which included more food, starters and mains, than we could comfortably manage, although we gave it a good shot! Spicy chicken, lamb, ribs, lots of rice, and other things I can't even remember. It was really... More

We ate here because our B&B recommended it for a sit down dinner. The food was delicious and we had quite a bit left over. We saved it and then forgot it in the refrigerator at the B&B!

of all the restaurants I visited during my few days in dawson city, this was by far my favourite. great greek food and a cozy atmosphere. while it can be a little hard to get a table at times, it is worth the wait. this is how a small restaurant SHOULD BE!

One of my favorite eating haunts in the world, the Drunken Goat serves great portions of hot, tasty, greek dishes in short order. Yes you still need to go early or late to get a sought after table, and yes the wait continues to be worth it! A MUST when in Dawson.

We enjoyed the Greek platter on the patio in the evening sun. Delicious lamb and chicken. Lots left over for lunch the next day. Locals recommend this place regularly. Good prices for wine as well.

The vintage board walks and dirty street hide this gem of a restaurant. Get inside and enjoy the delicious meals offered in the traditional Greek atmosphere.
