It was good food, but a bit pricey so it gets 4 instead of 5 stars. Their specialty house pusding was delicious.

Excellent food, casual friendly vibe, great bar, nice staff, views. I stopped in at The place, Herb's and at least one other spot before settling in here. This was what I was looking for. The spicy mussels were a huge dish, and memorable.

Even given our hearty appetites, we could... More

The food was fresh, seasoned well and had good portions. Not too large nor too small. My only down comment is they serve water at the table from a bottle which means... More

After 4 hours in the car, and another hour and a half on the ferry, we were starving! We checked into our hotel, and walked down to the "Cask and Schooner" for a late lunch / early dinner. The hostess seated us right away at an outdoor table, and subsequently greeted by a delightful server. I ordered the steak salad,... More

We flew up from Oregon in our Cessna for a spur of the moment excursion up to Friday Harbor. After arriving we took a quick scan on Tripadviser to find a good place to eat. Of course, we wanted to be near the action at the harbor side and someplace with good reviews. The Cask and Schooner Public House seem... More

Just finished dinner on a beautiful evening in Friday harbor. My mother in law had the soup of day The coconut curry and she loved it. Fish and chips were ok. Staff was right there and food came quickly. We would return.
