Great food but slow service

I've been there quite a few times and I love the food every time. But this time, it just took forever to get drinks and again to get our food. It was a 2hr dinner....really.....what's happening to your service?

Dined with a group of 3 adults and two children. Atmosphere is nice with beautiful views and rustic charm. The service was pleasant enough but incredibly slow delivering both food and drinks - I think our entire dinner went from 5:45 - 8pm which is far too long with young kids. Food was just so-so too. Something was off with... More

I was most pleased by the fact that although I didn't like their lamb/goat cheese pizza (way too much goat cheese and not enough lamb...or really any other topping), they were more than happy to replace it with another meal, steak tacos-which were fabulous.

We had a spot at the bar, which we normally enjoy. The bartenders weren't very cheery or friendly, mind you, they did check up on us fairly often. The food came out pretty quick and it tasted not too bad. But the portions weren't up to par in my opinion.

We had a very nice dinner here. The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed their selections. We returned a couple of days later and had another excellent dinner. The selections on the menu were really good and there were many items we would have loved to try. I had an excellent burger and the guys had ribs that fell off... More

After a day skiing, I was tired and hungry. We have been to the Goat before, so we were looking forward to a good meal. The experience there started poorly by not being able to park my truck by the restaurant area and having to park down the road in some dark parking area. We had booked ahead but for... More

We came here because it was highly rated and we had a discount with our timeshare, but I wouldn't say it was as good as the reviews. There was lots of confusion during seating us and no one greeted us for close to 10 minutes once we sat. Our food was each brought out at different times which was kind... More

Had a coupon and i was able to use opentable so decided to give it a try, the decor is very appealing inside, place has a very open style with a second floor. We had an appy mango duck wings, then lamb shank and bison ribs. Overall not bad, we've had better elsewhere, but this wasnt the worse. Service was... More

My friend and I went to the Iron Goat for Lunch. It was on a Friday and it was slow, which should have been our first red flag. We were seated with a great view, since it was slow. That's were our good experience ended. Our server came over, did not know the specials and didn't have a pen to... More
