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

The food and service were excellent; unfortunately, it will close in early 2015 and be replaced with a tavern.

The food and the service exceeded our expectations. We ate several meals with 12-14 at a time; we stayed 3 days at The George Washington did not have to leave the facility. We also had a great meal at the catered affair we were there to attend. Breakfast lunch and Dinner was always a great food experience. The staff accommodated... More

Ate here for both dinner and breakfast. The food was great, well prepared and served hot. I would eat here again when in town.

The original chef was wonderful but he left to guide another restaurant. There have been so many since. Even when the food is good, the service suffers tremendously. Stay here, eat out.

I have eaten here 3 times and each time has been very nice. The small little restaurant has always been quiet with a romantic atmosphere, at dinner time, and its it wonderful for date nights! The food is more on the pricy side but it is totally worth it, so yummy. The burgers,salads, ravioli, wine, desserts, ribs, I have loved... More

My daughter and I recently visited the Dancing Goat for an early dinner. (The front door was locked, but we found our way in via another door.) The experience was not a happy one. Even though the restaurant was nearly empty, our main order -- two hamburgers -- took nearly 25 minutes to arrive. While we waited, we were startled... More

My family stopped for breakfast here before checking out Old Town Winchester. It was absolutely delicious - the Chesapeake eggs Benedict was wonderful. Other diners also enjoyed the creme brûlée French toast. Service was excellent, and we all left stuffer and satisfied. Would definitely eat here again.

We had dinner here, although convenient we wished we had walked over a couple of blocks. After waiting for a menu for a long time, waitress brought bread and butter, 15 minutes later she arrived with knives. There was another wait for salads, we felt ignored although we were only table. The entrees come and were just ok, warning meatloaf... More
