I intended to try the Billy Goat, but the place was dead, with one customer. They have only 4 taps, and the beer selection was mediocre. I had a very cheep cheese burger - $3.35! - from the small restaurant in the room, which has tasty and an excellent deal.

Being a native of Chicago I was excited when I saw this place across the street from our hotel. It had no connection to Chicago other than the name and a few pictures. The food was not reminiscent of Chicago in any way. The bartender had no idea what I was talking about when I asked her if they sold... More

My hotel was disappointing but the fact that this little place was across the street made it worth my while... In fact I was so impressed with their food, I went back a second night! Now if you are looking for trending food that flames beside your table this isn't the place. However, if you want solid traditional fair like... More

The Billy Goat was a block from our hotel. We ordered a couple of burgers and fries the first night of our trip. The food was not great but was inexpensive. The place has a $1 off happy hour. The bar has outdoor seating and limited indoor seating. The liquor selection was limited. It was pretty hot inside also. We... More

Great casual dining where you can enjoy a good sandwich seating outside with friends. It was close to the Washington Court Hotel. Clean place with inside and outside seating.

We were staying across the street and got into town late to grab something to eat. Prices are very reasonable and food is OK. It isn't anything fancy but if you're hungry and looking for something relatively inexpensive then this is a good option for you.

In the midst of all the pricey ( but Good) dining options in the Capital Hill area, the Billy Goat Grill stands out as an exceptional value. Great burgers and sandwiches at regular reasonable prices. Nothing fancy just good grill food. Going for breakfast tomorrow morning before we hit the road. Highly recommend.

My friends and I chose this restaurant because it was across the street from the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill where we were staying. The service was prompt and efficient. My friends said their food (chicken quesadilla and grilled chicken sandwich with fries) was tasty. My barbecue wings were decent. The atmosphere was energetic and casual. Across from the food...
