Stopped for lunch after ice skating on the square. Food and service were again great. Mixed drink specials are very good, and the fries cannot be beat. Got a few burgers and the cuban, all big enough to take extras home. Restaurant is very well set up for Covid while still feeling cozy. Love G&E!

We had the rock shrimp nachos, burger, and steak. The nachos were fantastic although a little light on shrimp. The use of Fritos instead of chips really set them apart. I didn’t have the burger but was told it was delicious. The peppercorn crusted steak was just okay. The flavor was great but it was pretty chewy. Made it a little hard to eat. We also each did disco fries as our side. It’s a really big portion, definitely should’ve shared! The Elderberry Margarita was delicious.

First time I’ve been. Definitely need to make a reservation and if you’re only a table of 2, you may very well end up with a crap table. We had a choice of by the door (in February) or shoved in a corner on stools. We took the stools. Food was good enough, the service was great and made up for a lot. Hostess wasn’t helpful.

I love the Goose. Their menu selections should please most, and each item is damn good - I’ve tried them all but the fried boloney! Brunch and Dinner, this is one of my go-to’s. For dinner, come early and saunter in for a drink at the back bar(when things are normal). I’m a fan of all Jose Salazar restaurants. Each one for a different occasion.

Food was fantastic; I mean really great and the price point impressive.
Service was some of the best I've ever had. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful to our family. We had our toddler with us and it was past our usual dinner time. They were all so sweet and accommodating. Made for a really wonderful experience.

Love Goose & Elder! The food is casual with unexpected elevations. I had the bologna sandwich and I never knew bologna could taste so good! Shishito peppers are always a must, too!!

All the food was distinctive. The duck confit dish was great melody of flavors. The roasted veggies were perfect. We went on a Monday night to avoid crowds. Great service.
Great price/value ratio.

For the most part, this is comfort food, but it is the best you will ever have. Name any dish you think a restaurant in the city does best...then try it here. G&E has the single best fried chicken. Perfectly made/seasoned and still great if you have some left over and eat it cold the next day. I don't eat pork, but taking a bite of the much praised fried baloney sandwich made me want to change thousands of years of history. Fries? Sometimes, they're all I want for dinner. The drinks? Fantastic. Add in great service, a kitchen crew that looks extremely happy, and a fantastic chef...this place is a winner.

Sure, the fried bologna sandwich is incredible and the fries are some of the best ever, but, go for the fried chicken! It’s so good! Crispy, juicy, right amount of seasonings. It is so good. Always great service and great value.
