Visiting Effingham on business my hosts took me to the Gabby Goat. Neat place right next to the John Boos plant. We were seated quickly and the food arrived quickly.

The french fries tasted like fish grease. Not the first time I've been disappointed in this restaurant.

This is our favorite local restaurant. Expect a wait if you are going on a Friday night. Friday is all you can eat Catfish. I'm not usually a fan of Catfish but this is exceptional. Lightly breaded and prepared perfect.. The dipping sauce is excellent. Not your regular tarter sauce. Their regular menu is great with lunch and dinner specials.... More

Everything we order is always so good. We love rib night every Thursday. One of my favorites is the Steak bites and the sweet potato waffle fries with a delicious dipping sauce. Their burgers are extra special
