“Glad we tried it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012 via mobile

We had a nice dinner here. We've walked by for years, kind of avoiding it as it seemed like a tourist trap. But we were kind of tired and it smelled good! The fries were great, the stroganoff more than my husband could eat, and my lamb burger was fantastic. Lots of fresh, local food and reasonable prices. We'll be back!

“So Much Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Not sure if it was the harbor view, the food, drink or live music (Tony & Cecil), but for a Sunday night we had a lively good time!

“British Port Pub Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

We stopped in for lunch while waiting on the ferry and found the Cask and Schooner to be a neat restaurant with a great looking pub and reasonable food even though we were hitting them at an off hour for lunch. Our selections were simple but everyone in the group was pleased with their selections. I had the flank steak salad which was very good and the rest of the group reported their choices to good with another salad and two hamburgers ordered our group.

We did not get to try the Cask and Schooner for dinner but the menu looked very appealing as it suggested a more refined menu offering and I would guess based on the appearence of the pub that the wine and beer offerings were more impressive than most of the water front restaurants. If you like root beer try their's as it was very good.

We would go back and try for dinner the next time.

“Don't miss this yummy little spot!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

This charming little place has a wonderful selection of fresh, well prepared and thoughtfully presented food. ...all the regular lunch items with just a little extra twist to make them exceptionally delicious. I had the grilled calamari salad with green papaya ...amazing. My fiance chose the grilled chicken sandwich with brie, apple and smokehouse bacon and he is still telling everyone it was the best sandwich he ever ate (he is a fussy son of a gun and hard to impress, so don't take this lightly). Service was attentive without being annoying. We had a wonderful young man look after our table and couldn't have asked for anything more. Lots to look at decor wise and a real feeling of authenticity. After the previous nights horrible experince at a neighbouring restaurant, we were skeptical, but so glad we tried this out!! Will definitely make a bee line for the Cask and Schooner next time we visit Friday Harbour.
