Our lunch meal was good, not great. The atmosphere was fine, the people friendly, the place was clean and orderly. The grilled fish tacos were good, but not as flavorful as expected. Two small tacos with chips for $15 was a little overpriced in my opinion. The clam chowder was good but also a little overpriced. The seafood quesadilla was... More

I had the lobster roll, lots of lobster but somewhat bland in flavor. the bread used for the roll was very good. my cousin had the fish sandwich, Atlantic cod, loved it. my pick! for dessert, the blueberry crisp had a very fresh taste.

I was just reading a couple of reviews and thought how different their experiences seemed to be from mine. I hadn't been in Cape Cod in almost 30 years but had stayed in Chatham before and liked the area very much so when a friend and I went to a conference in Boston we took two days to come to... More

We had a delicious and diverse meal with varying ages including children. The clam roll (2 adults ordered) was wonderful and said best they've had. Caprese salad with shrimp was large and fulfilling as a meal. The Macaroni and Cheese with Gouda/Boursin was unbelievable. Food was fresh and served quickly. Great location and beautiful view of downtown. Highly recommend!

The Chatham shopping area is high-end and expensive and this is reflected in the local eateries. The Wild Goose is quite swank, with a very nice interior that includes cloth napkins and tablecloths and fancy silverware (extras that I like). The prices are high but you get what you pay for in terms of decor and atmosphere and good, well-prepared... More

We live on Cape Cod, so we look for seasonal consistency in a local restaurant - the Wild Goose Tavern failed in that regard. There were five of us an no one could say that the meal met their expectations, when, off season, there had been more satisfaction. One example: my wife and I both had the lobster pasta dish;...

We expected the Wild Goose to be the typical overpriced everything-on-the-menu tourist trap. And it is. The service was excellent. Most of the meals ordered by our family was considered average or slightly above average. Generally, the portions were small so feel free to order a few appetizers or the extra soup/salad. The dining room is large is they can... More

Quite a big Place, Not really cosy - but excellent Seafood. We tried oysters And lobster. Prices were ok - Quality of Food excellent. Staff was efficient. We will definitely Return. But for the Food - Not for the atmosphere.

We arrived about a half hour before dinner time and we were seated with the menu and given the opportunity to order appetisers and drinks. We ordered the shrimp cocktail and the portions were quite generous. By the time we finished with that and the Rolls and butter we were able to order dinner. The dinner was really tasty. I... More
