Thank you to the General Manager! Fish is wonderful. Such a fun place as we were greeted by the GM and he proceeded to tell us the meaning of GoatFeathers. Don’t miss this one.

Didn't find this place as appealing as in the past. First, our waitress was a short Asian lady who was very quick to come and go and not too attentive. To start, one of us ordered drink...but she brought us something else because they didn't...have what they needed to make what was ordered. Just handed it to us and took off. Good thing they had the food we ordered or who knows what she would have brought. The tuna dip was nothing more than tuna salad....the cheese curds weren't hot and melted so they must have been sitting a while before getting to the table...the oysters were served with no crackers or hot sauce and tracking her down to get some was a chore. The fried fish, shrimp and oysters were alright, but the Gouda grits they served as a side were dry and chunky hard. We will likely explore other options from now on.More

Food is fresh and the service is great. They do get very busy, so try to get there early. This visit the baked oysters, chicken alfredo, and crab legs were excellent!

Great and friendly staff. Our large dinner party all enjoyed the food. We enjoyed a drink while waiting for our table. The fresh fish was fantastic and well worth the wait. I will definitely visit again the next time we are at the beach.

I dont remember how the food was the last time I had Goatfeathers but I absolutely hate the wait! It takes so long to get food! Its not a place to go when you have places to be. My mom called to make a reservation...and they called 40 minutes later so you can't really trust them with trying to get a time to eat.More

We lucked out and arrived just in time to receive a table without much of a wait. Our server was friendly and efficient. The food was good, we all recommend the crab cakes!

Great seafood!! If you are in the area, do not hesitate to stop by there! They were VERY busy so try to go at a earlier time than 6-7. Go earlier and you will get happy hour!!!! Great staff, food was spot on!!

Terrible experience. A year ago we had a great experience but this place has clearly gone down the tubes. There were only three tables in the entire restaurant at 4:15 just after they opened but it took them 15 min to seat us. Manager was...rude, disheveled, loudly cursing and obviously very unhappy about being there at all. Food was mediocre, extremely overpriced and took an hour to arrive lukewarm. Extremely disappointing and clearly now a sadly poorly run establishment. Lots of potential here if the right people got ahold of it. Wouldn't dream of returning until that happens.More

We waited for about an hour to be seated but it was worth the wait. They had the best steamed shrimp we had during our vacation. The kids meal came on a frisbee which made my daughter pretty happy. My husband got the fried seafood...platter which was about what you would expect. It wasn’t particularly bad but not amazingly delicious. The bread pudding dessert was a nice ending to our meal.More
