A Peek Into What Makes Goodfolks Special

Before opening, Jayme Austin (a creative consultant in the restaurant industry) jumped at the opportunity to be a part of the team behind Goodfolks. She saw the potential of launching a Southern-inspired eatery that prides itself on excellent food, service, and style. Jayme told Hello Georgetown that Goodfolks is highly focused on the experience customers have.

“We put out a good, comforting vibe where people can come in and they don’t feel rushed or want to be pushed out of here,” Mitchell Donahue, General Manager at Goodfolks, told Hello Georgetown. 

“The idea is to feel like you’re going to a family member’s house and you’re more than welcome to stay as long as you like and if you want pie a half hour after you eat dinner, then that’s not an issue. We have a full-service bar, we have boozy milkshakes and we really want people just to stay and feel at home.”

If you’re looking for a fun, tasty, and authentic experience on your next date night or family outing in Georgetown, give Goodfolks a shot. You won’t be disappointed by the food, service, or atmosphere that the team brings each and every day.
