Only a few places have a harbor view in Friday Harbor and this is one. The food was very good, and there was live music early in the evening. Seating with a view is only in the Bar area. It's a busy place so get your name in early for seating. Prices per plate are in the mid teens. The... More

We were very happy with both the service and the quality of the food here, during a visit to Friday Harbor.The restaurant offers a good choose of entrees,and the clam chowder was very good, which is saying a lot,since I am from New England, on a visit to Washington.

Loved the well done nautical theme! This was a special family outing and the location of our table on the second floor made for the perfect spot to enjoy a special lunch. No one was disappointed with their menu selection and the choice of local beers quenched thirsts! Very evident that they were short staffed but the hostess jumped in... More

We had an excellent lunch of Razor Clam Chowder and Shepherd's Pie, both delicious and nice proportions. The wait was about 30 minutes, we sat in the bar and service was a little slow, but hey, it's Island Time :-) Would definitely go back, just a block up from the Harbor and Ferry Landing, very nice! Total with 1 beer... More

We sat at the bar and relaxed while enjoying many of their beers on tap. Over the evening we ordered several appetizers and finished the dinner off with the lamb burger which was excelling. Service was great and the setting, overlooking Friday Harbor was beautiful.

A lot of places with this type of location - right off the harbor on the main street - I've found to be tourist traps. Not this place- we had lunch and breakfast there (breakfast much better than the other spots in town) and both were very good. We had an excellent salad and some great fish and chips.

The staff were very knowledgeable and were able to suggest the best menu items for a Celiac. Good selection of food and service. Greatly appreciated their concern.

It is a bit better than average. Nice typical harbor bar with a view of the harbor, water, ferry landing and tourists dis embarking. Good bar with a wide selection of the "small batch" liquors. Friendly staff and bartenders. Absolutely worth a drink getting on or off the ferry.

As I read reviews and asked around, all signs pointed to the Cask & Schooner. I visited and it was simply OK, nothing more. There were a few other restaurants in town that ranked higher in my book, especially for the freshness of food and ambiance.
