I have been a customer of the Wooden Goose since they opened, but I'm not sure I will be returning. The food and service was good, as in the past, but when I got the bill was shocked that prices have almost doubled in their new location! I'm sure their rent has increased in their new location, however, I am... More

After over 25 years on Port Washington Road, the Wooden Goose has moved into a mini-mall about a mile southwest of their other location. With a very small sign out front, you have to know that they are in that location. We stopped for breakfast this past weekend and found the new location bright and nicely decorated. The food and...

I'll cut them some slack, because they just moved to the new location. Service was slow and pretty indifferent. Waitress seemed a bit annoyed that we didn't know our order the first time she came by. Not too, attentive, i.e. empty water glasses. Didn't get pretty easy order correct. Hot dog with tiny side was $10. Portillo's hot dog is... More

We stopped here for breakfast this past Sunday morning. This place is kind of cozy, nestled in an office building. We were told they are soon moving to another office building about a mile away in a few weeks. The service was good, as was the food. The price for the two of us was about $5 more than we... More

Went there with family who lived nearby. In a strip mall and very casual. Had breakfast which was good, maybe a little greasy...but then it was eggs, home fries and sausage. Lots of locals eat there but nothing here that stood out...other than the name.

Cute and small restaurant. Open only until 2:00 pm. Breakfast was very good and so much food! Arrived during what I would consider the "rush hour" for breakfast but it was not crowded at all - and service was good. Coffee kept coming.

Cozy, cute classic American greasy spoon. Well prepared breakfast options. Best char-grilled burger in the area. Famous cinnamon roll is amazing. It is so nice to have a locally owned quality place with quality, unique food. It's a piece of Americana that is hard to find in today's chain world. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful place for breakfast but their coffee tastes like water. Even my 91 year old father complained about it but when it came to the food he all but licked his plate.

The food was good but the wait was not worth it! They were not that busy but the manager said the kitchen was small and that his customers understood. It was our first and last time there mainly because of the attitude of the manager.

Thank Meddena
