Had lunch with my mother and one-year-old daughter, The service was great and the French onion soup was wonderful, not too salty. I had the daily quiche special which was great, and my mother had fish and chips which she thoroughly enjoyed. I would absolutely go back and would love to try their dinner!

Good food. Very friendly staff. Good for all, including kids. A touch slow, but it was a busy Saturday night. We've been there for lunch once too and it was less busy and the food came out a little slow then too, but very good overall.

Went to the Wild Goose Tavern on Tuesday evening with my wife and four adult children. I ordered the salmon and thought it was excellent. Two ordered the lobster roll and were very satisfied with the generous portions. Two ordered the swordfish and loved it. And one ordered the salmon salad and loved it. Our European accented waitress was very... More

We went for lunch and ordered three items and two drinks: Mussels Fish tacos Thai salad with grilled chicken It took forever to get the food. The mussels were ok. The fish in the tacos were slightly warm, the fries were soggy and not freshly fried, they were likely frozen and fried earlier. We initially received a Thai flat bread... More

Went to The Wild Goose with family on a Saturday night. We were surprised that we for a table without a reservation at 6pm which was great. The small size salads were a good value as they were a decent size for the price. The new england clam chowder was very good, but not in the great category. Two of... More

Good food, great service from Fiona. Very enjoyable. No issues. We arrived around 5:30pm on a Tuesday - which probably avoided all of the crowding, slow kitchen issues noted by other reviewers. By the time we left about 6:15, the restaurant was packed full with a 45 minute wait. After a long day of dutifully following my wife and daughters... More

Being Hyannis residents for almost 15 years my husband and I had heard good things about the Wild GooseTavern in Chatham, but I knew we were in trouble from the very beginning. We called ahead to see if we could make a reservation and were told no but they could put us on a "call ahead" list. No problem -... More

The food was ok - nothing special. Prices are pretty high for what you get. There are probably better restaurants close by.

Given the great location of the restaurant, we were surprised about the slow service and mediocracy of the seafood. Overcooked seafood on overcooked pasta. On Cape Cod! Restaurant is more like a university dining hall than a restaurant in quaint Chatham that has so much to offer.

One of the greatest food items on Cape Cod is, well, the fish. Lobster is great, the oysters are fantastic and (usually) the cod is so fresh, it nearly bites you back. Feeling a bit decadent, I ordered the Fish and Chips at the Wild Goose Tavern. Looking like an upscale version of a tavern, I had certain expectations. I... More
