Welcome to the Grumpy Goat Tavern!

Bringing a bit of the Big Easy to the City in the Suburbs, our restaurant offers Cajun/Creole classics like Jambalaya, Crawfish Etouffee and Bread Pudding along with some curveballs like the Bayou Burger topped with a Crawfish Cake or the Chicken Po’ Boy drizzled with Black Cherry Chipotle Sauce. Located on the Highlands of Elgin Golf Course, we let some of that Scottish Brogue soak in, from food such as the Highlander Burger smothered in cheese, to our extensive whiskey and bourbon selection, to the flannel patterns decorating our booths and chairs. You may say we’re wildly eclectic, but we like to think we have something for everyone!


Our restaurant is host to many events, didn’t you know? Sometimes that means the dining room will be unavailable for regular seating — but don’t worry! You can always grab a chair in our bar, first come, first served!
