Last I heard, they were closed.

As I understand it, the bathrooms were not up to code. As the restaurant owners rent the building, they didn't want to pay to fix them, and the owners weren't going to do it. This is all hearsay, though--I could be wrong. Anyway, The Goat used to be a great place for a burger, garlic fries, and... read more

Closed for good and I am glad. This place became a blight on the town. Filthy kitchen, bad food and even worse service. Etna Brewery is moving into this location and will be a welcomed change.

This is on first glance a cute place. But when one uses the facilities you find that it is a small closet of a restroom. It is not available to ADA clients and it is a unisex restroom. It is a great spot, on the Y intersection of South Mount Shast Blvd and Chestnut Stree, it has porch that is... More

The food and service here are both hit and miss a few years back I ordered and expensive Kobe beef burger. It was ok but being that it was supposed to be Kobe beef maybe my expectations were way to high like the price. It is a fun place however to sit out on the deck along Mt Shasta Blvd... More

It's hard to find a normal restaurant in Mount Shasta, and this is as close as I could find. The fair is pretty much burgers and beer, but it was good. Their french fries are good, the onion rings are very good, and they also have sweet potato fries. The one warning however is don't have the ice tea! And... More

We have loved "the Goat" t in the past and plan our road trips from Seattle to California to include an over night in Mt. Shasta City so we can enjoy dinner here-- good burgers, friendly service, great atmosphere on the deck. That has been a great experience for 5-6 previous trips. Not so this last time. A friend who...

Have to agree with several recent TA reviewers - the beer and atmosphere are nice, but the food is seriously lacking. I'd rate this place "poor" if it weren't for the beer and outside seating. I ordered a simple grilled chicken salad, which came out with dry, over-cooked chicken (what little there was) and salad greens drenched in dressing. A... More

The service was miserable but don't blame the server! Management decided one server was enough. Bad decision. Brandon worked his tail off. Paid $11.50 for nachos with chicken. Nasty! The cheese was gritty, milky, and tasted like it had been warmed several times over several days. The chips were stale. Greasy. The fish taco was merely adequate, not impressive. As... More

I have to say, they have wonderful iced tea. The service was awful, the food not great, and we did not get what we ordered. No one checked in with us to see if things were OK, or to refill drinks. Garlic fries were ordered, plain ones delivered, even tho the menu stated the garlic fries were the side. Nachos... More
