It's like stepping right into an English pub, lots of fun and very friendly. Super cozy feel and the bartender is excellent at cocktails.

We were celebrating a baptism and found the staff as well as food and drinks to be above expectations. This is truly a pleasant, friendly restaurant with fine food.

Love a restaurant that is disguised in an old house. Love a restaurant with unique selections from both the bar and the kitchen. Love a restaurant when the food tastes even better than it sounds!

Outstanding food, creative cocktails and wine served with flair. Though their burger is my go to menu item, Jay, our server, directed us to a new Brunch specialty: Fried Green Tomato BLT sandwich. Thick slices of green tomatoes dusted in semolina and flash fried; crisp outside, perfectly cooked inside, thick sliced bacon, leaf lettuce on toasted bread, aioli. What an... More

Went there with a few family members for lunch to celebrate my mothers birthday. The food was great but a bit cramped. Prices are not too bad.

We were here for lunch. The food and the atmosphere were great. It was a beautiful day and we ate outside. The meal started out perfect but somewhere between the drinks/appetizer (wings, which were delicious) and the entrees something with the service went askew. There four of us - two ordered the fried chicken sandwich, one the hamburger and one... More

Stopped in for lunch. Ambiance is a 5. Service was quite good. Food was average or slightly above average. Far too much salt in the GG Burger. Even more in the duck fat fries which were also somewhat soggy. Maybe they have or have had better days but there are too many good spots in town for this.

Pouring rain, soaking shoes, grumpy faces. All turned around after an hour spent in the cozy basement bar at Goose & Gander. Great wine by the glasses, tremendous cheese plate, a wonderful cauliflower-three-ways dish, and a fireplace to boot. Nice, unobtrusive, and knowledgeable bartender. So glad we stumbled in.

I called on Saturday around noon and made reservation for 7 an hour and a half later. When we arrived we were seated right away and it wasn't too busy, although it was a bit cold and rainy. The cocktails were delicious, I had a seasonal rosemary and pear drink with gin, my husband had one from the main drink... More
