“Good eatery”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Across from the ferry - I was a bit surprised by the quality and amount of our salads. Fresh greens, plenty of chicken and tasty dressings. I also ordered the crispy cauliflower and it was chummy. The service was little slow and very pleasant. The atmosphere was just like a pub, a bit noisy but fun. Price wise was better that the other eateries in town.

“Late lunch, disappointed with choice.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Not sure what has happened, last Summer the Cask & Schooner food was fabulous and service flawless. Our first visit Tuesday the service was FLAT and food was not even mediocre. Smoked Chicken Salad was soaked in oil and the smoked chicken was very unattractive and too smokey. Fish & Chips were so heavily breaded we could not find the fish.

This is a great location and has been a fabulous dinning experience in the past. Hopeful, they can get fresh and good food back on their menu, and servers will get their zeal for service back.

“Good choice near ferry!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This place was recommended by one of the naturalists on our whale watching tour because of its local, healthier menu. We enjoyed great salads and clam chowder, all very good and generous portions. Our server was attentive and we were happy with the meal in general. The one exception: the child got a box with only 3 crayons, missing one. She requested an exchange and never did get a replacement but they were busy and we survived.

“Pricey for what you got we were all disappointed”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

After several locals recommended the Cask and Schooner all 7 of our party decided to try it. Three of the party ordered a $39 steak, very fatty and honestly I have had much better food all around. The beer was good and the homemade ginger ale was a treat.

“Great Use of Local Produce”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We had lunch there on a Sunday afternoon after a whale watching tour. We had the kale and chickpea appetizer. The portion provided was large. We both had salads that were full of fresh local produce. It was a very pleasant experience.
