    Cask n Cleaver may scare you away when you drive up. It is an old school steakhouse. Our food and service were very good. I would not hesitate from dining there again. Prices were very good. Our prime rib was tender and tasty. Our waitress was attentive, helpful and friendly. Don't be scared off by the brown sided building with no apparent front entrance.

    The staff were extremely friendly. Pricing was decent. The place had an older feel look to it. There was gum under my plate which wasn't so pleasant. I also thought their chowder was going to taste better. A little disappointed in those two factors. Other than that it's a nice place to take the family to dinner.

  • Birthday dinner

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    I've always loved Cask and Cleaver but I think this was my last time. The food was ok, the steak that I ordered had a lot of fat on it. I paid extra for Mesquite...why? Does it cost that much to sprinkle some seasoning on an already high priced piece of meat? There is one side dish that comes with the meal, salad or soup is now extra. The piece of cake that we shared was stale and crumbly, the frosting came off in a large piece when the fork pierced it. I don't mind spending a lot of money on a great meal if I feel it's with it but this place needs some serious remodeling. The prices are suitable for a hip, vibrant place while the actual restaurant look is stuck in the 80's. We spent over $200.00. I lwish we would have gone elsewhere.

    I have to say that many restaurants tend to not give such great service to large group (10+) because they usually automatically add their tip to the final bill. I was pleasantly surprised that it was not the case at Cask n' Cleaver. Our server was great and attentive and the food was great also. We will definitely be returning and the tip was well deserved for our server.

    Good food and great service. Only issue we had we were close to the kitchen as the smell of natural gas came from the kitchen due to the pilot had not lit. Waitress went to tell them and they took care of it right away. Got a headache anyway from it. But we will return.

    Don't be fooled when you drive down the residential street and wonder if you are in the wrong place - the Cask 'n Cleaver is hidden away in a residential neighborhood - and when you go in the building you are transported directly back into 1967 Los Angeles - huge wooden beams, bench seating with pillowed red leather banquets - wooden tables and chairs that look completely original and lovingly maintained. The food is exactly what you would expect in a 1967 steak house - steaks, salads, hamburgers, fish, shrimp - done very competently and a delicious and refreshing change from over-engineered food 'experiences'. Its a place you will remember visiting....very unique and special!

    Although my wife and I had not been there for nearly a year, the dining experience at the Rancho Cucamonga Cask n' Cleaver was very good. The service was good and the food was great. What was most appealing to myself and my wife was a new menu with a section for lighter eaters with smaller portions and new tantalizing dinner items.

    AdrienneVIP
    Dined on 11/21/2013
    We were in the mood for steak and we ended up here. The Smothered blue was recommended and it was a top sirloin cut. The steak was chewy and hard to cut. My boyfriend had same cut but it was thinner and med well. He seemed to like his. I complained and the manager apologized and said that it must of been a bad cow. What? Nothing was offered to rectify the situation. The only thing worth going back for was happy hour, which we stopped for a drink before our reservation. Our bartender was very nice and provided great service!

    I wasn't entirely sure about this place when I first drove up (it's in an out of the way area) or when it took a few minutes to get seated when the restaurant was empty... But my girlfriend and I ended up thoroughly enjoying our visit. The steaks tasted great (and came with a salad, baked potato) and the service was even better - our server was very attentive and friendly. Other than minor issues - drinks are pretty expensive and the steak temps weren't spot-on - we had a great dinner. I was pleasantly surprised by the bill as well, as it only came out to $64...would definitely recommend this place. Just don't overdress (like we did) - it's not the Sycamore Inn. : p

    We have been going to the Cask for years. Since we no longer live near one, we only get there about once a year. We were pleased that the steak was great, the salad bar is still the best quality, and the wine list has some unique local wines as well as well known wines.

    This local restaurant has been around for years and is always dependable for great food and service. Prime rib is excellent as well as a full salad bar if desired. Main dining room is really unique and shows off its historic side, but is really crowded on weekends. Definitely make a reservation or you may be waiting a while or have to go into the bar area. I really appreciated that the restaurant held my reservation (made on Open Table), even though I was about 10 minutes late.

    I have been a Cask 'n Cleaver customer for 30 years. This last visit to the original Rancho Cucamonga location was excellent! We were greeted by the manager and immediately shown to our table. Our waitress was prompt,efficient & funny. The steaks were cooked perfectly. Some of our visits to other Cask locations have been so-so, but this trip was the best. I may just continue to make the trek here. The extra time on the road is worth it.

    We went for Father's Day. Excellent Steaks I had the Filet & my husband the 16 oz. Prime Rib. My parents both had the everything Burger. This is a steak lovers paradise. We had the salad bar which was full of unique choices including beets, peas, olives, jalapeno's, bacon, cheese, egg etc. There was also a good assortment of salad dressings. Please eat something other than a burger at this place though I am told the burgers were great also.
