I believe you can find their current menu on their website. I remember Paul reading it to me as we were driving through the mountains. As I said, the food is not very unusual, but very good.

The French Goat is a quaint French bistro located in the historical district of beautiful Lewisburg, WV. Our menu is traditional French with touches of both classic and new cooking techniques. The decor is smart, relaxed, yet elegant. Our wine list favors French wines but we also have wines from California as well. Craft cocktails are a favorite here at TFG, and you can always find your traditional favorite or be adventurous and try one of the bartenders seasonal selections. The beautiful garden is a wonderful place to have a glass of wine and features a 10 foot high fountain to add atmosphere to your cocktails or dining.
