This is a highly rated restaurant, and TripAdvisor contributors apparently don't lie. The first night we were in Friday Harbor we decided to try it. We loved it!
My wife had the fish and chips (which was on a par with anything we've tasted elsewhere), and I had a wonderful smoked chicken sandwich. But the best part was the salad we split ...
I love beets, she hates them, but we decided to split a beet salad anyway after the server (who was excellent) described it to us. The beets were blanched or somehow drained of their potent redness, which made them fit into the salad even better. My wife actually criticized me for dipping into her half of the beets! It's served on a bed of greens, with sliced apples, blue cheese crumbles, and a delicious rosemary vinaigrette.
The second night we actually intended to visit the most highly rated restaurant in Friday Harbor, the Duck House, but it was closed for construction. So, back to the Cask n' Schooner we went. This time I had the fish 'n chips, and she had a lamb burger, which was recommended as a favorite by a local. It was nothing short of amazing. Truly medium-rare lamb, with very tasty fixings and greens.
Highly recommended, and a moderate/reasonable price. Both times we had to wait a bit for a seat, even though we were in mid-week, so if you come on a weekend, I'd suggest being prepared to wait.
