We went to listen to a local band and grab a bite to eat. The Swamp Fries appetizer sounds strange but trust me, they were perfect, shared with a few drinks. Love the architecture of this building, raw brick walls and lost of character. Though...More

We were traveling and heard about the Fainting goat. We decided to go check it out. The building was an old canning factory and full of character. The food is out of this world! The chef puts a unique twist on the favorites. We had...More

From 8 to 80, from the top of the food chain, to the bottom of the barrel, The Fainting Goat has something for everyone. Not so fine dining and we like it that way. Burgers, chicken wings, steaks and salads. All made fresh with loving goat hands. The Original Fainting Goat Restaurant...A nearly perfect place in a nearly perfect town. Liquor, wine, premium and domestic beers. Open 7 days a weeks! Kids welcome!
