Good Experience

Food was exceptional, and location right by the marina and ferry terminal. Staff is friendly, but service is quite slow.

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere in 'navi-style' with friendly personnel. The beer selection is fine and the wine as well. The style of cooking is 'home-style', very solid in quality, made well but nothing fancy. The liver with apple was excellent and the lamb burger good as well. We left filled and happy.

The fish (Cod) is house cut and prepared to flaky perfection. The "Chips" are also house cut and prepared. This will be a must do each time we visit Friday Harbor, as it is within walking distance of the Friday Harbor municipal Marina.

Everything else was good if a tad on the pricy side. Friendly relaxed service was a plus. A good place and dependable. We were there for lunch and dinner takeout. Except for a mixup at the take out which management rectified graciously and a little chewy halibut everything was good.

We always recommend Cask and Schooner to all our friends and people visiting the island. The food is consistently good with high quality ingredients. The only problem is the are so good they are often very busy. Sometimes the service suffers but they always have a great can do attitude.

A year and a half later and they're still talking about the steaks they had here. And I can't recommend the poutine highly enough. Relaxed atmosphere, central location, and great food. What more could you want?

A lot of restaurants were closed since it was winter, so I asked a local where to eat and she told us to try this place. Right by the ferry landing. They have things like bangers & mash on the menu but I ordered a seafood stew that was pricey but ALL seafood.

The atmosphere is fantastic, with unique seating. They are incredibly family friendly, and our waitress (Courtney) made my daughter and I feel so well taken care of- despite the fact she had the entire upstairs! Perfectly themed décor, and an adorable private party (small parties) room on the upper floor that is modeled after one of the schooner cabins. The... More

Sits right on the water just off the ferry so the views are fantastic. The food was GREAT and service was just as good!
