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.

Wonderful lunch menu in a very cozy dining room with a wonderful mural painted along the walls. Also be sure to check out the painintng of the geese at the bar! Very cool!! The food was really really good. We had the Goose Tavern Fries with the Gruyere cheese and bacon bits. Deadly and delicious! The flatbread with arugula, fig... 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

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
