A Good Start to a New Beginning

To begin withy, this restaurant has been transformed and is now "George's". The Dancing Goat is no more. George's in under new management, and they are trying to create a new persona to match the quality of the hotel.

My wife and I had breakfast here mainly because it was the only place open that early. We both ordered the traditional eggs benedict and they were both poor. The English muffin was stale and not toasted, and my eggs was overcooked. Nice enough décor, poor food.

Renamed "George's", this restaurant in the George Washington Hotel is a low-key, attractive atmosphere with out-of-this-world, top quality food at VERY reasonable prices. The George's salad was a very good size with fresh greens. The short ribs of beef were incredible and the service was friendly. Fabulous, fine food at moderate, prices you won't believe in a relaxed atmosphere.

This was terrible! We live in WInchester and decided to try out this new restaurant in the very nice George Washington Hotel. The prior restaurants here have been terrible and this one continues the tradition. We decided to start with appetizers and if they were good, go ahead and have dinner. We definitely did not get that far. There was... More

This truly was an upscale place to dine but since the transformation it tanked. It was so bad I called the next night and asked for a manager. I got put on hold for 9 minutes, someone else picked up and made me wait another 3. I talked to Jennifer and she really didn't care that we were hometown people... More

We went there for Sunday breakfast because they said they had a buffet. Not really. We were put in a room by ourselves because we had a party of nine. The waitress only came in the room once or twice, never really checked on us. Food was okay nothing real spectacular . Food is over priced, the wait staff is... More

I'm not sure if this review should go to the Hotel or Restaurant so I'm posting on both. I travelled for business and took my teenage son with me on Dec 29th, 2014. I researched hotels and restaurants at length ahead of time and settled on The George Washington Hotel. I had read good reviews of The Dancing Goat restaurant... More

We ate here on a Monday evening. Service is good, food is pretty good, but a little expensive for what you get. They have a good wine list, but again, I think the prices are a bit high. We were staying at the George Washington Hotel, so it was very convenient to go there, but it wasn’t as special and... More

Went to a retirement party at the Dancing Goat. Reservations were accurate and we were seated on time. Service was prompt and, even though a member of our group could not get a glass for their beer, the waiter was able to bring humor to the situation. The food was fine - well prepared and served hot. The problem? Everyone... More
