Contemporary American
Opened in the spring of 2010, “The Goose” is a renewal of a classic American bistro and tavern offering fine dining, contemporary cuisine, warm hospitality and superb service. It has immediately become a popular gathering place in town reminiscent of its predecessor “The Black Goose Grille”.

Its current owners have meticulously restored the restaurant’s original bar and the open fireplace in the tavern which provide a warm and inviting focal point for get-togethers with groups, family and friends.

The two additional dining areas combine classic and contemporary design and accommodate dining groups for large and small events.

    The food, drinks and atmosphere is always amazing at the Goose. Our Waitress however rarely came over to our table to check in. Other then that it was a great dinner!

    Our family loves The Goose and has gone there for years. The only part I would complain about and it may just be a one-off type experience but I could help but feel rushed. Bus boy was quick to grab bread basket off table before entrees came out. We were on our second basket of bread and there was still some left. It was also similar with removing our entree dishes. I don’t judge based on my one off experience as I would just assume they were starting to get busy.

    The bartender was waiting the entire bar and all of the bar tables. He was completely overwhelmed and it took us 25 minutes just to get a drink at the bar.
