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

We stopped mid-afternoon for hot soup and appetizers. The warm drinks were fabulous and the food some of the best we had in town.

So nice. There is a big fireplace in the entrance. The staff is polite and treats you so well. Prices are fine. You expected to pay that much for this kind of food and elegant atmosphere. The waitstaff came and wished me happy birthday with a small cake and a candle. This was unexpected and I enjoyed it. This is... More

My wife and I have had dinner at the Wild Goose Tavern twice over a period of about one year, once for each time we visited Chatham on vacation. Both times we found the food, service and atmosphere to be exceptional. Over the course of two dinners, we have ordered appetizers, different salads, clam chowder, chicken dishes, lobster macaroni and... More

We've been here many times. It is consistently good and the food is presented nicely. Waitstaff is courteous. The view from the dining on the deck is lovely and the atmosphere is casual and relaxed. A very pleasant experience.

Chatham is a great place to stop for lunch but it's hard to choose a place to eat because there are a few options. This place is good. The food is definitely better than the local diner. However, we thought it was a bit over price. We expected more delicate food with maybe less quantity. Plus we were told they... More
