Got into town late 6/21/22. Had a great meal with my family of 6. Great suggestions and service by the server. Left just before midnight, getting to my condo late. Early that next morning I found I was missing my wallet. Left it at the...Resturant? Called, but closed until 4pm. Went to the PD and the officer messaged the owner. An hour later the officer had picked up my wallet from the Resturant and delivered it to me on the beach where my family was located. All contents were intact. The Resturant owner and staff should be highly commended for their honesty, service, and food quality.More

Breakfast was awesome! The Sangria Mimosa is devine and the atmosphere is friendly and fun. WE visited 3 times during our weekend stay at the beach.

Excellent food, drinks, eclectic atmosphere! Have been here many times over the past years and is a must do on our visit to Hampton Beach every time! Our April visit has been the best experience since the area wasnt booming with the summer crowds yet.

The BBQ is.not good at all !!!! It was dry and no smoke taste. The taste all came in the sauce. And I don't think the BBQ sauce was home made. I would say skip The goat 🐐.

Okay, I get that they're a "whiskey bar" but a bar is a bar and they should have more beer choices! The food (chopped brisket sandwich) was average but I did enjoy the tumbleweeds (thin onion rings). Not too many places left open at the...beach in October.More

When I want a good burger at the beach the GOAT is the place to go. Service is good no matter how busy they are.

Laid back beach pub atmosphere. Dollar bills all over the walls. Crown Royal Apple was flowing. Saw lots of food being eaten, just not by us...

The service was terrible the bouncer out front is a d**k who thinks he’s hot s**t. There is no social distancing, proper mask wearing or sanitation procedures being followed. Really disappointed and concerned for the health of the customers and employees

Good burgers and sides. Loud and busy corner but fun for people watching. Food was good, staff was great. Went for lunch, not sure I would go after dark. I had the No Respect burger which was good but ask for the egg to be...cooked over easy, not well done (I wish I would have known!)More

The reviews are right. Super good steak quesadillas and chicken wings and great fries. Loved the laid back atmosphere and country music! Alyssa, our waitress, was great. Can't wait to return!

Stopped here for lunch as it is across from where we are staying. Recommend sitting upstairs on a nice day for the sunshine and breeze. We each had a burger with a side salad. The salad was extremely fresh with a great variety of veggies....Burger too. The atmosphere is rustic and the frozen adult beverages looked goodMore

We had 2-for-1 burgers (Mondays only) for lunch, which were delicious. The fries and tumbleweeds (battered onion strips) were tasty too. However, if you're worried about COVID practices in restaurants, beware. None of the servers were wearing masks. One server told a patron that she...didn't have to wear a mask to the bathroom. We ate outside and were able to socially distance from others. I wore my mask to the extent I could. Don't expect others to be doing the same.More

The Goat is the best place on the seacoast if you are looking for a unique burger. My husband and I have been eating here for years now and the quality has not changed. The location is quirky and looks like a dive bar but...the food is top quality. They have an extensive menu but my husband and I always try the specialty burgers. I do not eat red meat but they will let you substitute the beef burger for a veggie burger if you choose. The drinks are VERY strong but this is perfect for the summer since the beach is just a stones throw away. If you are ever on the Hampton Beach Strip I would suggest you wander down L Street to this amazing restaurant.More

Disappointing meal in a crowded room... we had a party of 8 people and that may have been the problem. We were seated at a pair of high top bar tables - there were plenty of empty regular tables that ended up with only two...people sitting at each them that would have been much more spacious for our large group. We had to remove all of the stuff on the table to fit our plates and drinks while eating - it was very crowded. Plus the tables were different heights! On top of that the food was only so so. I had eggs Benedict and one of the eggs was hard boiled! My side plate of baked beans was cold - even though they were served in a cast iron pan with a pot holder. Two other people mentioned their eggs were cold, the bread was barely toasted and the home fries not cooked through. Maybe we ordered the wrong things, they don’t cater to large groups or it was an off day but it was disappointing. On the other hand the waitress was quite pleasant, the place is very cool looking with dollar bills covering the walls - all written on. And the drinks were yummy!!More
