We went to the Horny Goat for Happy Hour. Vern was our server and he did a great job. Appetizers were 2 for 1 (about 2 for $10). We had tator tots and chicken wings, both great. The atmosphere was delightful. We sat next to the river under an unbrella. I ordered one of a dozen house beers (they are... More

Our group went to the Goat about 1:00PM on a Friday and had a wonderful time outside under the bar tent. We did not experience slow service; probably because we were a few feet from the bar. We will go there again for sure. Great appetizers! We did not order any meals. It is worth a stop. For dessert, we... More

Although Horny Goat does an aggressive job of marketing itself in the Milwaukee area and sounds like a great place to go, it fails to meet expectations. I think the food is good, although others I've dined with there tend to rate it more in the fair range. The service is what is most unimpressive- slow, indifferent- and I am... More

We used a Groupon and enjoyed our lunch. I too, understand all the comments about the service. Our service was a little on the slow side, but since we were there at lunch and it wasn't too crowded, the service wasn't as bad as other reviewers said it was. I do believe what they said though, because I did hear... More

I can see I'm not the only one who had horrendous service at this establishment. It's honestly a joke. I have never in my life received worse service then at this place. We had heard the service was awful but thought we'd try it anyway. Big mistake. It could have such potential, but because of the staff (and the little... More

I have never had a great experience at Horny Goat Hideaway. I have tried many times because I want to like it since it is a cool venue. Bottom line is that the service is the absolute worst that I have EVER had ANYWHERE.. and it has happened over and over. Well today was the last dollar that I will... More

To be fair we arrived with a large party for Sunday Brunch. We were seated promptly because we called ahead to reserve sufficient space. That's where the customer service ended. Our server was a new employee. She obviously was not properly trained or prepared for the job of caring for paying customers. We talked to the "Manager" about the situation.... More

Average pub food and the service is pretty good.I see the place was on dirty dining on Milwaukee TV a couple months ago mostly minor stuff. As for beer, better than Miller or Bud but not as good as other brew pubs in town and when they have a good special beer they always run out need to make enough.

The pulled pork, fried chicken, and mac and cheese was wonderfully delicious! But the best thing on the menu is the loaded tots!

While Horn Goat has an awesome atmosphere with seating along the river, the service is horrible. We went with a group of about 10. 4 people ordered chicken fingers, 15 minutes later the server comes back and says they are out of chicken fingers (not a big deal). She retakes our order of 5 sandwiches and a bowl of soup.... More
