In Darien, there are numerous restaurants on the Post Road. Search out and try the Goose American Bistro.

Clams Casino and the Angus Beef Burgers are tremendous. There were not many people there for a Monday evening, so the wait staff was not over-taxed, but (while friendly) they ware not too attentive.

On the whole, I’ll come back to try it again, but the service will have to be upgraded to meet the quality of the food.

Very nice happy hour and 1/2 price bottles of wine on Tuesdays. Great local sports bar with very friendly and personal service. And did I forget to add good food too

For some reason, I've never reviewed The Goose, to which I have been multiple times over the past five or so years. It's great! We've been for both lunch and dinner and all occasions have been pleasant, cordial, with caring service and a very nice menu that has something for everyone. The dining room area is a nice size and tables are not crammed together so conversation is easy. Everything we have had has been very good, from burgers to salads to fish and chips to sea scallops to several pasta choices. The food is fresh, nicely presented, and, most important, delicious! Even when we've lingered rather a long time, we have never been rushed or shoved out the door to make room for others. Really, very professional and great staff. There is also an excellent brunch on Sundays. We have never been on the bar side of The Goose, although it is visible when entering the restaurant, but it is lively and gets rave reviews. They work hard to have special nights for special occasions and there is often a band or group performing. While street parking is not easy, there is a good-sized lot behind the restaurant and a little sidewalk from the lot to the restaurant. We're going again next week and totally look forward to it!

Excellent, varied menu. I had fish and chips, substituted coleslaw for fries; excellent fish, not greasy, homemade slaw was delicious. Quick service. Friendly staff. Seemed quite popular with the locals, always a good sign. And happy to make substitutions. Next trip to Darien, I will return.
