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

We were visiting the are during the off season and happened to run into a problem of running into where to eat because there are so many places that are closed during the off season. We were staying a block away so we walked over...to the goat. We walked in and were taken aback at how busy and crowded the place was it was a great thing to see because we knew the food was going to be great and it was nothing short of that. We ordered wings to start they were plump, juicy, cooked to perfection. On Saturdays and Sundays they do brunch breakfast foods all day my daughter ordered their reese's pancakes and holy moly these were out of this world incredible a bit heavy but we shared them so it was good. My son ordered a burger he said it was good. My fiancé and I ordered steak tips they were good too. Definitely a great place to stop in if you're in the area.More

Stumbled across this place because the one across the street had a 30 to 40 minute wait, I am grateful for that because this restaurant is spectacular! Ambience was so inviting and fun, felt at home here, staff was attentive and engaging and we will...definitely return. Effortless fun!! Country music blasting was absolutely perfect, nothing like Jason Aldean on a Sunday Morning!!!! Just perfect in my eyes! You go Goat!!More
