    This was the worst dinner experience I have ever had. It started with a very rude waiter who fought us on everything we asked for with cocktails. Then he was extremely aggravated when we wanted a few minutes before we place our appetizer order. As soon as the appetizers came he insisted we place our dinner orders. We felt extremely rushed. There were plenty of vacant tables. The food was subpar at best. Definitely the worst meal we had on vacation. The food was bland and unappealing. Dry and tasteless. It was suppose to be a special birthday dinner for my daughter in law but turned out to be the low of our week in Chatham. STAY AWAY FROM THIS RESTAURANT. IT IS AWFUL!

    Delicious food, great ambiance - the new bar renovation is beautiful as are the outdoor spaces! The staff is always so incredibly friendly and welcoming, many of them have been around for a long time and it is so special to see them summer after summer. We love the Goose for a solid reliable meal and warm, enjoyable family experience!

    While we had made a reservation over a week earlier, they were completely unprepared for us upon our arrival. Due to ‘server assignments’ we were put in a dining room adjacent room that was like a cafeteria even there were plenty of tables in the lovely dining room. As soon as we got drinks, a walk-in table of 13 was put next to us assigned to the same server. He never asked if we wanted more drinks or checked on us, our food was delivered in waves by multiple other people. A highly disappointing night overall, embarrassed to have brought out of town guests there.

    I just want to apologize for the experience that you had while dining with us. I fully understand that the timing and location of your seating was certainly not the best and with that information we will work harder to make sure that in the future we are training our staff to seat guests in a more comfortable location based on their party size. Again, I'm very sorry that your experience was so poor but I do hope you will give us another chance in the future.

    Disappointed. We hadn’t been there in awhile, went back after the winter renovation. Restaurant was very busy so noise level was very high (inside). Biggest issue was with delivery of food. Our party of 4 waited almost an hour for the dinners to be served. Our server apologized often, even offered us bowls of chowder to fill up the time. Not worth the wait.

    Hi Jennifer, thank you for taking the time to review. I'm so sorry about the poor experience you had while dining with us - especially the time you waited for your food. I will make sure to speak to our chef and manager and work to improve that in the future. Thank you again, we hope you'll give us another chance in the future.
