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.
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.
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.
