My wife and I ate here and enjoyed it tremendously, a good wine list including a good range of Europen as well as American. The Atlantic cod was excellent, succulent and not dried out as so many so called top restaraunts seem to serve it in New England. Highly recomended.

Spending a beautiful afternoon on the Main Street in Chatham is a lot to like - it's not all about the beach! Sit outdoors at the Wild Goose Tavern and enjoy fresh, creative selections and watch the passersby. Food was delicious, service responsive, a nice getaway. Have never stayed at the Inn, but would consider it based on the restaurant... More

We ate at the Wild Goose Tavern twice during our four-day stay on Cape Cod. Great location in downtown Chatham, interesting menu choices and friendly wait staff.

This restaurant is attached to a hotel, and we ate in the large spacious main room. It was busy but the service was excellent, our waitress brought our starving son his soup out straight away. The drinks were delicious as was the daily special (seafood and pasta dish) I liked the atmosphere - laid back but not lazy and was... More

We enjoyed very fresh, perfectly cooked fish and chips sitting on the patio at the Wild Goose. Great spot on Main Street to people watch. Service (both the hostess and waitress) was very good. Caesar salad was also fresh and delicious. The patio is not very big and there might be a wait on a busy, warm night but there... More

Found this place on yelp - decided to give it a shot after reading several reviews. Called 90 minutes ahead and was told our reservation for 5 at 7pm wouldn't be a problem. Showed up at 6:50 only to be told we now needed to wait 25 minutes. 60 minutes later we were finally seated, 20 minutes later we received... More

The restaurant wait time was a bit long. Would have been nice to be offered a seat atthe bar while waiting but instead the left us in the corridor. We had a large group of 13 and we felt like we were in the way waiting there. With this size order the gratuity was included. The service suffered. After s... More

The Wild Goose Tavern is a must stop for us when visiting Chatham each year. The fish is fresh and well prepared, the salads are great, and the clam chowder is excellent. Great to people watch out on the deck. This restaurant can also hold a larger crowd than most restaurants in the area which is great on busy summer... More
