The Goat Restaurant Particulars
Opening each year in Mid May 20 to late September 30, dining hours are from 11:30 am – 10 pm every daily. From the downtown area head up Catawba Avenue past the Put-in-Bay Churches and school. It is located above the Chocolate Cafe & Museum in a former winery. Seating choice includes the outside covered deck with an abundant covering of floral displays or indoors in the rustic dining room with hardwood floors.
The Goat Restaurant chefs take pride in every creative dish they produce. The chefs use fresh herbs, fruit, and vegetables are grown in three gardens located on the premises in their entrees and cocktails. As a result, the menu offerings are as fresh as can be! What cannot be grown locally, is sourced from Bergman’s Orchard for both drinks and desserts. Diners are sure to taste the difference fresh ingredients make in their dishes.
The Fresh motto extends to their seafood and steak selections. They always use freshly caught perch from Lake Erie for their famous Perch Tacos. They are even known as the “home of the perch taco.” Hand-breaded fillets of hand perch are paired with green onion, cheese, shredded cabbage, and their secret “pali wali” taco sauce in a flour tortilla. Fries are optional! Equally as well-known are their delicious homemade soups. A rotating menu of soups daily, each using only the best ingredients, means you’ll always have a few great choices! Just ask your server about the soup specials as soon as you are seated!
