Great Prices for Breakfast / Bickering Employees / Slow Service!

The prices are excellent for breakfast. You can get most everything on the menu for under $7. The food is good. The employees were bickering all morning and the one lady was working hard and the other lady was just walking around and complaining about things. They do not have mushrooms which... read more

Every other year or so, my husband and I venture down to Grafton to stay and "getaway." The Wild Goose is ALWAYS where we have our breakfast whether we are in town for 3 nights or just one or whatever. We have and will continue this tradition. They serve a wide array of food and you can even have an... More

This is my second and last visit for breakfast. Locals say the Chili is excellent --so maybe this winter will try that (made in crackpots a head of time). They can only serve one table at a time---so if there are 3 to 4 tables without food you have at least a 30 minute wait. Only two people working most... More

Really enjoyed our breakfast and bloodies at the Wild Goose. Our waitress had fun humor and the owners were really nice.

Mother of owner makes homemade coleslaw and baked beans-excellent! She also cooked our (non-frozen) burger and put it on a very fresh bun which she grilled and buttered. Awesome meal!

This wasn't our first choice but the other options were on an hour or better wait. Now I know why this place had no wait. The only thing this place has going for it is the view of river through the dirty windows. The service was terrible. The food,most of which they Were out of was not worth any if... More

Lousy food with mediocre and unfriendly service. Don't let the location fool you into trying this joint.

Good breakfast reasonable price. Local place , friendly staff. Nice view of river. Not much going on in Grafton in winter, so this is it.

We have had breakfast here twice while staying in Grafton. The first time the service was slow but nice, the second it was worse and did not make us feel welcome. The food is the normal greasy spoon fair with nothing to make it really stick out. There isn't a lot of breakfast service available but we will be looking... More

My husband and I went there for breakfast one morning while we were staying in Grafton and we will never go back. My husband never got offered any refills throughout the whole meal. The owner when we went to pay was EXTREMELY rude. We had two 20 dollar bills since we got it from their ATM (don't AAccept card) and... More
