Lured in a nice setting, we immediately regretted our choice. We waited forever to place an order and waited much too long to get poor quality food. Our waiter ignored us. We were seated at one of the worst spots in the place even though it was mostly empty at the time. I would never return, and I would never... More

Yummy!!! We had appetizers and drinks. The waiter was kind and efficient. We sat on the front porch and enjoyed watching the parade of people.

Good cocktails but we were not allowed to sit down unless we were at the small bar or in a side room.

Greeted immediately and shown to our choice of an outside patio dining table. Drink order taken and returned quickly. Decisions between Lobster and crab quesadillas with Gouda cheese, or the ground chicken and spinach burger with caramelized onions, and mushrooms. The burger won with a cup of chowder. I usually express my distress with bacon in a chowder. It is... More

We had dinner at the Wild Goose while on a tour of New England. It was one of the worst meals I have ever had. My appetizer smelled strange and tasted weird as well. I figured it was just a combination of flavors that I didn't appreciate. I told our server I didn't care for it and she took it... More

I will meet at the Goose again! Late luncheon with my beau found myself deciding on Quesadillas with lobster and crab or a ground chicken and spinach burger with caramelized onions. The burger won and was devoured on a lovely outdoor porch. Another surprize was the jalapenos in the tarter sauce. Great cocktail - not watered down. Our waitress was... More

The Wild Goose Tavern seemed a cut above its neighbors on Main St. in Chatham. The venue is inviting and, whether you sit outside or inside, any seat is a good one. I thoroughly enjoyed my fried clam roll and my companion was very happy with her clam chowder and lobster rangoon appetizers. The service and ambiance were very good.... More

Food is always phenomenal, and they regularly have fun seasonal drinks. In the summer it's great to sit on the porch and people watch, and in the winter, if you have a group of 4 or more, you can eat in front of the fire. Great place!
