As locals we have been going to Goatfeathers several times a month now, they have a great oysters happy hour and a great buy 1 get 1 free dinner special thru out the week and I love their Fish & Chips, best I've ever had and a good sized portion, expertly done, this place gets mixed reviews but so far we have had an excellent experience going here and take advantage of their happy hours.

I should have known when there were so few cars there at 7:00 pm, but it is the beginning of low season. Walked in the door and could detect bathroom deodorizer scent. Should have taken that clue. Walked up the stairs to the dining room and saw plenty of wait staff and very few guests. Should have run then. Friendly hostess took us to a table next to windows that had a weird waterfall effect going on. Should have taken a clue.

Blue lights behind the bar and vintage decor is okay with me because we weren’t looking for fancy. Super friendly waiter took our drink order and we asked for an order of hush puppies as an appetizer. Long wait for drinks when a place was not busy. Waiter delivered 4 over-cooked hush puppies on a small plate. Sheesh! $3 - expected a basket or something.

Dinners took longer than I would have expected. Fried fish platter was good except for what we considered odd tasting crab cake. PoBoy with oysters and shrimp was very good. Grouper stuffed with the same crab was not so well received. Grilled fish of the day, Mahi Mahi, was good but the accompanying vegetable medley of the day was over cooked and very sparse portion.

Sadly, we all thought Goatfeathers was “past it’s prime” and could use an update. Luckily the staff was congenial and attentive. We wouldn’t do a return visit.

What a treat! Very reasonable prices that wasn’t a tourist trap. During happy hour you can buy one meal and get one free and their $5 Bloody Mary and $8 for a dozen oysters were excellent. The three of us had two dozen oysters, Caribbean blackened mahi mahi, the crab lovers platter, two sodas, and my Bloody Mary was just $73.

The staff were super nice and accommodating. Drive the short and pretty route to Goatfeathers. You won’t be disappointed.

Great dinner and service. I had the grilled grouper and crab legs (were out of soft shell crabs). Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Loved the atmosphere and the service. Food was good but not outstanding. I will go back as the menu is diverse as we have picky eaters.
