Cape Cod: Wild Goose Tavern

After a long day at the beach, while on our inaugural Rookie Chef Road Trip to Cape Cod, the foodie team and I were very excited about a nice sit down dinner in Chatham.

Less than a 30 minute drive a couple towns over, we walked the quaint streets of Chatham ahead of dinner, stopping into a few boutiques, clothing stores, candy shops and more. A perfect little town for exactly what you think of when you picture New England beach village. Insert, the Wild Goose Tavern.

Here’s a view from the beachfront we spent the early afternoon at for most of the day. Grey and white waterfront houses that looked out of a picture book and had us wanting to come back soon — even though we hadn’t even left.

After beaching all morning and having a couple packed sandwiches and snacks right on the sand, we drove through this neighborhood to take in the view.

Clam Chowder

Making our way to dinner, we drove east to Chatham,  a nearby town to get another taste of the Cape — literally. This evening, we happened upon Wild Goose Tavern and were on a mission for lobster rolls. Lucky for us — we weren’t disappointed.

To start the meal, we each ordered a bowl of New England Clam Chowder to get our taste buds going. Honestly, I would have lived off the seafood and chowder forever. We couldn’t get enough.

Lobster Roll

Next up was a couple orders of lobster rolls — perfectly tossed in seasoning and a light mayo. With a side of french fries and a pickle, there were no complaints at this dinner. Definitely a spot we would go back again to explore more of the menu.

Other yummy items that jumped out to us at Wild Goose Tavern included a Baked French Onion Soup, Fig & Prosciutto Flatbread, 5 Spice Grilled Duck, Shrimp & Grits and much more.
