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.

Food preparation was no good- ravioli was overcooked, hamburger was just mediocre, nachos was delivered with jalepenos which was requested to be removed etc.

We have dined here a number of times and the food is generally good. The small plates and salads are pricey, given it's Summer. The Salmon with quinoa, brussel sprouts and kale was good. Another person in our group had lobster sliders and while good, were quite small. Would reccommend!

They must have been short staffed in the kitchen because dinner was slow to arrive. It was good but not great, which is not usual for them. I hope it was just an off night...

My wife and I really liked the ambiance but I am sorry to say my Johnny cakes were pretty disappointing .
They tasted like box mix pancakes, nothing special.
And for the price that was not a winner.
Maybe we would try the place again and order something else but first time eating there was disappointing.

Good, dependable food. Cozy. Lunch is quieter than dinner when early diners experience Moms with kids who are rowdy.

Decent place for bar food and a cold beer, very nice decor. Good for a night out with friends, but not a date place or for a special night out.
