We are so sorry that this wonderful sandwich shop closed. They made the best sandwiches in town and served up with lots of niceness. We hope they will find it possible to reopen.... we miss The Loose Goose. Nothing in town can take its place.

Yesterday, the Loose Goose closed. The land the restaraunt located was sold to a developer. I believe in short term, they may continue with some limited catering but restaurant is definitely closed. Whether or not they will reopen in another location down the road remains...More

In our business, there are no excuses. But I do wish I had one. Restaurants, cafes, coffee shops are not just places that people go for something to satisfy a food craving. Customers come for an experience. Sometimes its great food, maybe a cool atmosphere...More

Slow, slow, slow. Sandwiches are great and if you weren't hungry when you came in you will be by the time you get your food.

Creative sandwich menu. All our sandwiches were delicious. Had one with tortilla chips and avocado on it. Unique, excellent. Finished with a white chocolate raspberry milk shake. Was great, but not sweet enough for my 8th grader. Wish I had ordered a chocolate chip with...More

You can always depend on good sandwiches, fresh ingredients, friendly service here. Much better than the Black Sheep Deli where you cannot depend on any or all of theses three categories.
