Keystone’s Goat to open new location next week

KEYSTONE – Scott Jackson, owner of the Goat in Keystone, recently headed out East to open another Goat in the tourist area of Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island in Ohio.Jackson, who grew up there, said opening a summer Goat has been the “grand plan” for the last 10 years.

“They are two areas I love, two areas I’m pretty well-traveled and two areas I really feel at home,” he said.Being able to spend more time with friends and family was one factor, according to Jackson, but the second Goat was also born out of necessity.

“Maintaining the original Goat here in Keystone has become more and more difficult in the offseason,” he said. The local Goat pares down its food menu to only soup during the mud season, but will be back to lunch and dinner in mid-June.Jackson said the Goat Put-in-Bay won’t have live music as the small island already has five to six live music venues, but will focus on the food and service. Perch and walleye will be added to the menu, but otherwise it will stay the same.

“I want to have the same vibe as Summit County. We are encouraging all our friends to come out this summer and create the laid-back vibe and Rocky Mountain feel (of the original),” he said.Leslie Brefeld can be reached at
