It was my husbands birthday and we really had a lovely time at Cask and Schooner. We enjoyed our salad, chowder, entrees and dessert! Everything was tasty. I forgot my scarf there and we went back the next day and got it back! Honest staff, delicious food and great service! Thank you!

Food was excellent in taste and presentation. We started out with dinner there and came back the next day (Sunday) for their brunch. Service was helpful and prompt. The atmosphere has a schooner theme with pictures as well as a small schooner to the right of the entrance door. Schooner boat and sail riggings/parts are scattered throughout. The bar has... More

Stopped in for lunch with 3 others. We loved the atmosphere and decor. My shepherd's pie was delicious, but the others eating with me didn't like theirs as much (I know one had fish and chips and another had poutine, not sure on the third meal).

Loved the chance to eat goat. The (beef) burger pleased the teen. East coast (historic) environment. Great service. Fair cost. Local sourcing. Popular with locals on a Monday night. Need I say more?

Over the Christmas holiday I dined here twice and was impressed both times. I had the fish & chips one day and a burger the next. I much preferred the fish & chips but the burger was good. I did try a cup of the lamb curry soup which was awesome. Great selection of beers on tap.

I read the negative reviews and went to see for ourselves. It was a busy night and were given a table for 4 and menu's straight away. I should have asked for the waitresses name but she had dark hair and a pleasant smile. She gave helpful information about the menu etc and worked very professionaly. The food and drinks... More

Before our trip to Friday Harbor I read that the Cask and Schooner served up the best fish and chips. It was pretty darn close to the best I have had. The best ever is actually a little place at Ocean Shores but that is just my opinion. The atmosphere was fun and inviting and the décor was awesome, but... More

My overall rating would be "good" however TripAdvisor doesn't offer that as an option in any of its ratings ( Only "Average" or "Very Good" are available which I find weird) . Service was good; food selection good. Lamb burger was tasty. Location is good being right down near waterfront

Very attentive service, instead letting finished plates sit they picked up in timely manner. Not too soon that you felt hovered over not too long that you felt ignored. Food came out fast. The clam chowder was wonderful especially on a freezing cold day, great flat iron steak cooked exactly the way I ordered. Great atmosphere. Would definitely return.

Thank T L
