I'm not sure what everybody loves about this place. It's kind of a s***hole. First, I will say it might have been one of the best places in the neighborhood (which is about 59 years past its prime). The restaurant is filled with leftover equipment...More

While visiting the Bidwell area I knew I had to include a stop at The Wounded Goose. We were not disappointed. Friday is wild game night and quail was on the menu. My wife ordered and truly loved it, my choice was less venturesome (pork...More

The Wounded Goose is a family owned and operated restaurant. We serve a wide array of dishes, from BBQ Ribs to Steaks... Shrimp and Grits and a Hot Brown. We're known for out AYCE salad bar featuring home made soups and 21+ items daily. You'll find the best Reuben around here, as well as the fluffiest Coconut Cream Pie and Fresh From the Oven Chocolate Chip Cookies with Ice Cream!HistoryEstablished in 2009In 2006 we started catering under the name Black Tie to Barbeque. After a few years the need for a larger kitchen arose and the idea of the Goose was born. While being a little off the beaten path (just 2.7 off US 35!) we remodeled the perfect site for our catering and restaurant kitchen, a dining room to seat 60 and plenty of storage for catering equipment. Being in a small town makes life better at TWG. Yearly, we host a Halloween Block Party, following the Bidwell Parade. We've also added many of the locals to our growing family and have built lifelong ties to the community
