Goat Mountain Public House reopens
Goat Mountain Public House, at 23788 South Highway 211, reopened its doors for public dining on June 10.
"We have been crazy busy," owner Kristina Miller said. "We are so happy with our community and all the love and support we are receiving and received during the 86 days we were closed."
During the closure, the "Goat" underwent a remodel. The wall separating the two sides of the restaurant was removed, creating an open space that works for both customers and servers. Doug Holz made wooden dining tables and a bar, and a stage was added to the music venue.
"We are so thankful our lender gave us a six-month moratorium and we got to barter for a lot of the remodel," Miller said. "We hope people will come and check out the remodel and will stay to have some food and have some drinks."
The restaurant is serving a full menu. Outdoor seating is available. Tables are six feet apart and for now, with table service only, bar seating is not open under Phase 1. The staff must wear masks and adhere to all restrictions under the COVID-19 guidelines.
The "Goat" is now open 2-10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday and noon to 10 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Takeout and curbside pickup are still offered. Call 503-630-4628 to preorder.
"The closure was hard on us because this place is my home, my family's home," Miller said. "We are so excited to be serving our customers again."
With extended hours coming soon, the pub is looking to hire additional cooks. If you are interested in the position, call 541-420-9819.
