The Aperol Spritzer was a great treat on the warm sunny afternoon that I had lunch here, and the halibut was absolutely perfect!

Crab risotto is very flavorful and filling. Fish and chips were crispy but not greasy. For the adventurous, let Bartender Dan create something special (I asked him for grapefruit + gin or vodka and he made this amazing Ruby Red drink). Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Highly recommend. Kitchen closes at 9:00pm so keep that in mind.

Had lunch with my 3 and 4 year olds. Although the place was packed, we were seated in minutes. Staff were wonderful. Food was very tasty! I'll have lunch here again in my next trip! Get the Chocolate Mouse- you won't be sorry!

The Cask and Schooner has good food. The fish and chips are very good ( the cod is very flaky) no need to upgrade to the halibut. The beet salad is very tasty, it has apple slices and candied pecans on top. I would not suggest the burger unless you like well done. The steak and fries is very good... More

Best beet salad I have ever eaten. Fresh organic and just plain tasty. Also had salmon sandwiches, which were very good on an amazing ciabatta bread. Totally recommended

We stumbled on this place and it turned out to be a very good place to eat. The food was very goo and the service was prompt and professional. Given that Friday Harbor has a lot of tourists we were delighted to find such a good restaurant with an interesting menu.

We sat at the bar and made friends, great local beers on tap and food was good. We got poutine, caesar salad and clam chowder, all delicious. Apparently they get slammed at dinnertime but it wasn't too crowded when we were there. Nice bartenders, great times.

We were starving and it was the only place close open at the time. Dinner wasn't being served yet at other places so we just stumbled in famished. What a treat. We were pleasantly surprised from the samples of beer to the pleasant service and wait staff. Food was A+ (of course we were both starving) but honestly my husband... More
