Poorest quality and quantity imaginable for a northeastern fish capital. Must have been all of 4 ounces. Unexciting. Had not been here for 4-5 years and I suggested we try it again. Really you can and must do much better!

We arrived at 3:45 hoping for a glass of wine and an early dinner/late lunch. It turns out that the lunch service ends at 4:00 PM and dinner starts at 5:00. Although we were assured that the lunch menu was available, one waitress curtly told the lady seating us that she didn't want to serve us (our impression was that... More

Stopped in for lunch, food was good - services was ok. They were somewhat busy. Nice place to sit outside if it's nice out. Large menu options and everything looked really good.

My husband and I stopped here yesterday for lunch on our way out of Chatham :( We sat out on the porch and it was a lovely atmosphere. I ordered the pumpkintini and trust me, it was amazing!!! So I ordered a second lol. I had the lobster and crab quesadilla and it was very good. I can't recall what... More

My husband and I ate here on 10/14/15. It is a very nice place for lunch on Main St. in Chatham. The service was very good and the food excellent. My husband had fresh oysters and the wedge salad. I had the brie/apple/bacon sandwich which was very yummy. I do wish that I had gone for the fries instead of... More

Walking through the town on a Columbus Day visit we stopped for lunch. My wife liked the clam chowder and my burger was ok. Pumpkin beer was good. Certainly not gourmet but decent. I do believe it was drastically overpriced.

We celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary with two kids and grandparents. Everyone had a fabulous meal. Good options for the kids even! Our drinks and food was fabulous. Wonderful lively atmosphere - could be a bit loud and definitely need to make a reservation or come early -- it fills up fast!

We was staying near by and knew we be eating in the Wild Goose on our first night in Chatham. We turn up about 6.30iish on Tuesday evening, we didn't book. We knew there was a couple of tables out front, which looked nice and cosy. The sun still hot and shinning. We was greeted by a nice lady at... More

We stopped in for lunch and ate outside on a beautiful October afternoon. The service was great! The chicken spring roll appetizer is worth going for, alone. I have the fresh caught blackened soft tacos. An amazing meal. A good beer selection and something for everyone on the menu.

The food, service & layout were all good, but nothing really special. The food we had was worth the money, but the overall experience lacked personality.
