Restaurant

“I put this one in Food and Nightlife because it's equally as good a place to eat as to drink. The Goat is part of a lifestyle housing community, but is open to the public. They have a gorgeous patio with a swimming pool, beach volleyball, and twin fire pits. Inside the massive dining room is a huge bar and some very cool decor. They have lots off great food, with some seasonal options, and plenty of drink options to choose from!”
