My husband and I ALWAYS go to the Goose when we visit Chatham. It is definitely our favorite restaurant - not only does it have good service & food, but it also has a great location! Their wedge salad is one of the best wedge salads I have ever had!

You must try the clam chowder...one of the best I've ever had, rich, creamy, and filled with fresh clams. Delicious! The chicken quesadilla was tasty too, and generously served with a great pico de gallo sauce, guacamole and sour cream. The service was very friendly and efficient. A nice place I'll be glad to revisit on my next trip to... More

We went to the Wild Goose Tavern on Valentine's Day just as the blizzard was starting up on Cape Cod. We had reservations and the hostess tried to seat us between 2 other full and very close tables despite the fact that half of the restaurant was empty. When we asked to go to an area with with more space... More

We had a great meal in April and came back on this blustery February night! Once again the food was delicious and the service was excellent. Nice and cozy too!

Watching Martha Stewart first thing in the morning gave us a hankering for a good onion soup and we remembered that the Goose has a very good version. It reopened this week and we were there. The onion soup was terrific; it would have done Martha proud. It was so filling we decided to split an entree. We had the... More

With full bar and a large and diverse menu, there truly is something for everyone here. My family spent summer 2014 in Chatham and had dinner at the Wild Goose Tavern at least once or twice every week, and we were never disappointed with any aspect of the experience. It was hands down our favorite place to eat! They don't... More

Went to Chatham to take some friends out to lunch. This was a place that they had suggested. We arrived to a typical dining room at upscale inn. Waiter was Peterkin and although friendly, he just wasn't attentive to details such as offering additional drinks or refilling waters. Had to ask for both a couple of times. We all ordered... More

The tavern is delightful, with colonial charm, warm wood, a fireplace, but with lots of light and space. The service is friendly and very efficient without being obsequious. The food? Exceptional. It seems like you can't get a bad bowl of chowder on the Cape, but the chowder at the Wild Goose was the best! And the Angus burger was... More
