A word from Cask Republic
Cask Republic having opened in December of 2013 artfully fuses the familiarity of an American-style tavern with the authenticity of European taverns of yesteryear. A Communal Tavern, the concept is simple; exceptional food globally inspired, a world class beer program, extensive spirits and wines – all housed in an atmosphere befitting that of a sophisticated urban respite.

Don't miss sitting near one of the two cozy fireplaces located in the Tap Room and Fireside Room.

Chef Carl Carrion has designed a menu which elevates global tavern classics to a new level through his seasonal preparation of quality ingredients.

Diner Reviews
  • "Enjoyed the food and service. We did the small plates and shared. Wine selection was good and can't top beer selection. I also ordered the Kobe Beef hotdog which was good. I would recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Our group of four enjoy a nice meal and a variety of beer types as we all have different tastes. Cask Republic scored high in our book on all counts."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Cask never disappoints! Lengthy draft list, tasty cocktails, attentive service, and unique dishes. Love the vibe in there as well!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I knew it would be noisy based on other reviews but it was difficult to talk on a Wed night with the restaurant only half full. I can only imagine how loud it must be on weekends! I had read that the food was very good but it was not. The ceviche was only OK and a small portion for the price. The presentation was poor. The french fries were cold and soggy. Overall not a very positive experience...unfortunately."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Had a great time enjoying the fine beer selection and excellent food choices. Definitely will go back"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We all enjoyed our food here. Service was nice. Great beer selection. Unfortunately, the only place to park is a nearby structure with a very unique feature. You purchase a ticket for the amount of time you want to park ($1/hour after 5 on weekends, when we were there) and then you get ticketed anyway. Almost every car in the structure got ticketed despite having paid. Our parking, for example, was good until 10:18pm -- but we were slapped with a $20 fine at 9:07pm and told by the attendant that if we didn't want to pay (what?!) that we could come back to Stamford on Monday during the weekday. Really. Umm, I don't think so. I think I'll just eat somewhere else next time."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Surprising place - walk by the restaurant and it looks like many of the other bars in stamford - but a gazillion beers on tap and in bottles, extensive scotch and bourbon selection matched to food done well makes this a great if somewhat noisy spot for dinner."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Great place for draft beer, over 50 on tap, with an excellent burger."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Mussels were overlooked, tasted very fishy. Mac and cheese was decent."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I was there on a date got the pesto Mac and cheese with the burger. The other reviews were 100% right you should absolutely at least try the Mac. It was awesome. Not a huge portion, enough for one to eat or 2 to taste. Burger was good too. Cooked just as I ordered it. Would go again."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "They've changed their menu a lot since my last visit, taken away some things I liked and tweaking others in non-appealing ways. But my husband loves their draft IPAs so we'll probably be back"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Great spot to meet friends after work. Extensive beer, whisky, bourbon list. Small plates and entrees."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Small plates and burgers were best of the menu. It would be a good place to go with a large group after a company outing or softball game. Parking on Summer street is a problem."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The title kinda says it all- and it's gotten better since opening. Pros: food is great, they have a great- and rotating- selection of beers, even the cocktails are worthwhile. The CR Old Fashioned is particularly great. Cons: the place gets busy, and the noise level raises accordingly. It's never overwhelming, but it's not quiet. Service is good, but when they're that busy, it can be slightly slow. Yes, at this point, I'm picking nits. All things considered, it's a great compliment to Barcelona for Summer St."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "An extensive beer/whisky menu. Delicious small plates and great sandwiches/burgers. We didn't know what to expect and really enjoyed every bite! 2 of us got an assortment of small plates as our meal another a burger and someone else a reuben. Everything was wonderful. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Mediocre food, uninformed server - although it's promoted as a whiskey bar the server admitted he didn't know anything about whiskey. Smh"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "I had dinner with a friend and had a wonderful time. The chicken was moist and flavorful and the pinot noir was just perfect. We had a really attentive server. Our table was in the middle back of the room, which wasn't great. I envied the other booths and tables in the front. But we still had a great time. "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Our server Adam made the night! He was honest and sought help with whisky choice by recruiting the equivalent of the sommelier, who knocked our shorts off! Food was tasty, appropriately portioned because we shared, and the atmosphere was vibrant. I only give a 5 if nothing better could be had in the neighborhood, and a 4 plus is not available. we enjoyed it immensely!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Dined many times here, food and beer are always good. As the bar filled up with after work groups the stereo was turned up so much, shouting at my dining companions as if we were in a nightclub was insufficient to be able to carry on conversation."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Went to Cask for dinner with friends after hearing rave reviews. Made a reservation a week or so in advance due to out of town guests attending. When we arrived, we were told it would be at least 15 minutes until our table was ready. When we sat we did have a great table in front of the fireplace but it took at least 20 minutes to get a drink and were never offered additional drinks after that. Food took over an hour to arrive for 4 people, we almost considered walking out. We could also barely hear each other because of the crowds at the bar. There should be some separation between the bar/restaurant so you can hear eachother speak. I bet Cask would be fine for lunch because of the lack of bar crowds but my experience was poor."

  • "Everything was really good..... very young crowd... very noisy. Service was good considering the action going on."

  • "Cask Republic has a nice intimate feel for dining and also a social vibe. The food and service was phenomenal . Try the cauliflower grantido!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "We were six seated in the bar area for dinner. Terribly noisy. The music was too loud and people were trying to talk over the music, so it was very, very loud. We were miserable and our guests couldn't wait to leave. Too bad."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "I was expecting another run of the mill sports bar but got a very big surprise. Its a delightful energetic bar with so many beers on tap I thought I was in Portland or Denver! The food was terrific. Lots of interesting delicious small plates. The large dining and drinking area near the bar has high tables and great energy. In the back left of the restaurant is a quieter seating area with standard tables. There is a fireplace back there for a couple to cuddle with a great beer or wine. I can't wait to go back and sample more beers and great food."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Looking forward to check out new place. Lots of people at bar. Lots of beer on tap. Might have to stand around if you don’t have table reserve early in the night. A good place to get drinks and have a mediocre meal. Oysters were not on the menu like the website indicated. Menu on website is not same. Ordered a few small plates and everything was over salted. Ordered soup. They could have filled it a little more than half the bowl. Mussels and fries - teeny tiny sad mussels and soggy fries. Seared Tuna was way over the top salty, we took one bite and sent that back. Soy Glazed wings was not bad. And the side of roasted mushroom was nothing special. Get tipsy and you might enjoy the meal."

  • "food/beer really delicious. service was slow, especially for lunch. luckily we weren't in a hurry to get back to work."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "This place has a fantastic beer selection! We ordered some of the small plates and were quite pleased with the food. I went for lunch and the place was practically empty, which was nice. Although difficult to understand how our waiter was unable to understand some of the things we said or forget something we ordered. He never wrote anything down, so perhaps that was his problem. Otherwise great experience."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Once again this fairly new establishment in downtown Stamford managed not to screw up the meal like most restaurants that last more than a year start to slip in quality. The beer is fantastic."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Cask Republic has a pub feel but is more than a pub. Food is creative and flavorful. I had the Duck con fit salad and it was perfectly sized and different from the normal run of the mill salad offerings you get at most restaurants. Staff is welcoming and knowledgeable..Great addition to downtown Stamford..They have enough Pubs! Nice to see something who sets itself apart from a pub!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "My initial thought was since CR focuses on a wide variety of beers it may not be a great choice for us since we love wine and an occasional single malt. Clearly, we were nicely surprised with our choices of both. Then, they brought the wonderful, well prepared and beautifully presented food. Salmon, meatballs, crispy pork small plate......everything was delicious. The wait staff was attentive and thoughtful in spite of the busy, almost-full-to-capacity crowd. We live downtown and will be back to CR again and again. Welcome to the neighborhood CR! V and J"

  • "Very good food and great beer selection. Seems to have a good, relatively young crowd. Would definitely recommend for drinks after work. For dining, try to get a table away from the bar area."

  • "I've been here 3 times now each time has been great. Good is very good, servers are nice, and the ambiance is very relaxed."

  • "The service and food were both poor. The restaurant's location is great but everything else was really disappointing."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We came late on Friday night of restaurant week and the place was packed to the brim. We had literally the last table in the back of the restaurant, but that was fine because there was a fireplace right near by and it was very noisy in the front by the bar area. This place is definitely known for their beer list, but I started with their angry bourbon drink which was very good, before proceeding to try one of the probably 40-50 beers on their draft beer list. My girlfriend got the restaurant week menu which had a bunch of good options, and her chicken dish was really delicious. I went for the short rib entree because I love short ribs and pretty much order them any time they are on a menu. It was a great preparation and we will be back."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The food was good, I had the chicken and my wife the trout. She did not care for the trout skin, so she had to take it off. The plating was unappetizing. The potatoes were thrown on TOP of the fish. The portions were good, but maybe scale back a bit and make the dish ascetically appetizing. No one left hungry after 3 courses. The restaurant was VERY Busy and food came out accordingly, late but not too late. Every course that arrived was missing one dish, we had 4 people. The food runner ran food with two hands, so he was always one dish short. We had to track down a server to get the missing dishes for the first two courses. He remembered the desert. I would go back, the beer menu is unrivaled in Stamford! I like the concept."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Dinner at Cask Republic was so rich and delicious! The portions were also huge, so be prepared to have amazing leftovers! I would highly recommend the eggplant parmesan soup, the cauliflower gratinado, and the IPA BBQ Short Rib Meatballs. Pair those balls with a Sixpoint Sweet Action or a Green Flash IPA and you're in business."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "This is a new hot spot opened a few months ago. They have great local beers right from CT. Their cocktail list is very good too. Had a spicy bourbon drink which was delicious and I don't drink bourbon. Now I am hooked on that drink. Great place to hang out after work. Good bar scene."

  • "My first time here - good food - got a table next to the fireplace on a cold night - priceless!"
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "The restaurant specializes iin a wide variety of beer, which we weren't interested in. We tried it for lunch, and found it quiet and enticing, with a fire going in the back. We chose a booth at the front so we could se street traffic. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We ordered a superb duck confit sald on arugula and a kale salad. Both were more than enough for a full meal. But we also tried the mussels- a large portion and also very good. The salads were around $12 and the mussels around $13- we shared everything so we ended up with a very good lunch for under $20.00. By the time we left, it was nearly full and the noise level rose considerably. Anyone who dislikes noise should come early."
