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

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.
