Terrific dive bar, with great live music. Location not so easy to find, but once you're there, everything is amazing. Ambience, people, drinks, music, all you need for a terrific night with your friends.

It's definitely a little bit of a dive but certainly a fun crowd and little place even at noon for a couple drinks and to hang out then just enjoy the local crowd.

Not a bad place, friendly people, crowded karaoke night on Sunday. Definitely a hole in the wall, no food, drinks were average price.

The Goat is nothing more than a dive bar. I go there because it is close to my house&the beer is cold. In addition, ot has a good karaoke night&it makes for great people-watching! Also, the men's bathroom is so bad I recommend walking around...More
