Charleston inspired low country southern cuisine

Your Neighborhood Restaurant & Bar


Featuring Neo-southern comfort food, created from scratch, sourced locally when possible. Our Chef, Will Mitchell, brings the rich southern influence of Charleston cuisine together with new Americana culinary flavor. The Blue Goat is a celebration of southern Low Country ingredients.

The Blue Goat kitchen reinterprets the bounty of the surrounding area, exploring an ingredient-driven cuisine that begins in the rediscovery of heirloom products and redefines what it means to cook and eat southern cuisine.

Laid-back, eclectic and unpretentious, Blue Goat is part Gastropub, part neighborhood café, and one elegant bistro. Exposed Brick, soft lighting and an unexpected quirkiness encourage guests to settle in, get comfortable, and have a great time.
