Our innovative bar program offers vintage and modern cocktails crafted with small batch spirits and house made infusions. We specialized on craft beer and we always have cask conditioned ale on tap. We offer over 30 different wines by the glass and for something different try our Prosecco on draft next time you visit!

    The chef here is very good. We went here on Sunday at 5pm. No one was in there except a couple in the bar area. We were in no rush, but service was slow. The staff was friendly though. Better quality bar food but more pricey then a regular pub. We had a sampler appetizer that was very good, but again it was $47.00. My kids liked the burgers the rest of the family has entrees that were good, not the best. For the money and food not worth the price. If I were in a group of friends on a Saturday night maybe I would go to the bar area, but as a family meal place, not.

    Love the beer selection here. Great selection in the entire bar. The food is satisfying as well, whether you want a small plate or two or a big meal. Loved the lamb burger, pastrami short ribs, most of the small plates, but the octopus can be hit or miss.

    This is our umpteenth time at the Dog and Cask for dinner, and enjoyed it every bit as much as all the other times we have visited. Food was fantastic, great atmosphere, and the menu, while being inventive, can be toned up or down, depending on your level of adventurism! The kitchen is very big on sustainability when it comes to their cuisine, down to the sweetener put on the tables for your coffee/tea. No artificial anything. Very commendable. Will be back again and again.

    There are lots of places that say that they're gastropubs or that do upscale pub grub. Dog and Cask delivers. They've got an excellent beer, wine and cocktail list, and the servers know their stuff, which helps navigating the choices even easier. The food is well done, and it hits all the right notes

    Burger was amazing!! My husband got the Octoberfest special and he said it was awesome. Great beer selection. My only issue was when we checked in , they said they had our reservation, however 2 days later open table contacted me via email to say that they were sorry I never showed up at my reservation. After a week of the restaurant not responding, open table again contacted me to see if I had a receipt so they could give me the points I was to be owed. FINAL POINT, make sure they mark you in the system when you arrive!!!!!

    We have been here several times. The last time it was a very poor experience largely because do a waiter that either didn't listen or care. Ordered sandwiches and an oyster appetizer with appetizer first. Forgot appetizer so we sent back sandwiches. Oysters came not properly cut. After we ate, server asked if we wanted desert or coffee. Said no, just check. Waiter 10minutes for him to come back and ask if we wanted desert menu. Will think twice before we go back.

    We had a great meal at dog and cask. This was our first time and we were welcomed warmly by the hostess. The decor and ambience were amazing. The menus are overwhelmingly filled with all the choices of beers, wines, and mixed drinks. We are regular craft beer drinkers and enjoy brewery visits and trying new things. . I wish we had been prompted to order a flight which we wound up doing for the second round once we found that in fine print on the bar menu. The wings and burgers were outstanding.

    They have a good selection of craft beers, an extensive whiskey list and the wine and cocktail selection isn't hurting either. And oh yeah, the food is damn good too! I received nothing but compliments about the food everyone got. The Menu is a little bit different then what your used to;There's no appetizer section. Instead, they have some sausage and cheese selections, small plates (which I guess could be the appetizer section) and then the Main course plates which actually works out better for a larger group. All in all, I'm glad I picked this place for a "guys night out". Good Times awaits you here!

    We had hoped for a nice experience to celebrate 2 family birthdays, but this wasn't it. We were presented with two menus, , and navigating between them was difficult, and the selection of entrees was quite limited. Our server kept forgetting items we ordered, and had to be reminded of our order. The appetizers were unremarkable. The entrees were good, although a steak ordered medium-well came out rare. A side dish was served with a bowl on top of a dish, and it slid off when being passed, causing a full glass of wine to spill , including into an entree. Although a server (not ours) brought extra napkins, we were left to clean up ourselves, and no attempt was made to replace what had been ruined.

    We've been there before and it's been fine. The service was horribly slow, worse than usual. The food is ok, but not worth waiting over an hour for! We asked about the delay. They apologized and offered coffee and dessert. We just asked they bring our child's meal now. It was the last to be brought out. We also asked that my steak be prepared medium rare. When it costs $33 I expect it to be done properly. It was over-cooked. We kept having to ask about our food and for water. I am used to a professionalism from waiters and waitresses, that is not found here. I'm not suggesting that the "customer is always right", however, some communication about what was happening in the kitchen would have been appreciated.

    Made a reservation for 6 of us to go to dinner here. We been wanting to try it since it opened. We went at 7pm and the bar was hopping. It was too loud to have a conversation. The food was amazing. The hummus with smoked paprika was an excellent appetizer but didn't come with nearly enough Pita bread. It literally took 20 mins to get more. The creamy mozzarella appy was awesome as well. The salads were fresh and unique. Our party had the Berkshire pork chop, Salmon and Cod for dinner. All were excellent and super tasty. The service (2 people, 1 may have been training) was mediocre at best. It took us over 2 hours to eat with us constantly inquiring about our next course. The beer list was exceptional. Alas No time for dessert.

    The menu was very interesting and different, food was a bit spicy. We ordered creamed mozz on toast for the appetizer--there were only 3 small pieces--the cheese was very good. For an entrée I got the tuna tartare and a mixed salad. Both were pretty good, nothing to write home about. The water is served in mason jars which is obviously a part of their motif, but when my mother asked for another glass or at least a straw the waitress's complete demeanor changed and you can tell that she was annoyed from the start. For the remainder of the visit she was very short with us until the very end when she brought the check. Ambiance was alright--very dark, bar type scene.

    We have been there quite a few times and will keep coming back. Very eclectic and creative menu of well prepared and presented food. We went for a vey lite supper and had the cheese platter and meat platter followed by desert. Two negatives are that they only do well done burgers (I want them close to mooing) and we were not impressed with the deserts.

    If beer and/or cheese is your thing this is your place. Anything else not so much. My husband ordered lentil soup and had to cut one of the contents with a knife and fork, followed by the pork chop which came with mush represented to be spaetzel but no brussel sprouts as per the menu. I had a salad and the orecchiette pasta which I could have made better at home. Check the very limited odd menu before you go!

    After reviewing the menu on line, we still wanted to try out the Dog & Cask. I thought the menu - while progressive should always contain some basic foods both apps and main courses for people that are not too adventurous. There was one soup on the menu rather than a few choices. The appetizers were interesting but different. I did try the Scottish egg. It did have a unique taste, but it was rather pricey for 1 egg.

    Our party of 7 arrived at Dog Cask at 7 pm on a Sat. evening. The restaurant was hardly busy with many open tables. The initial service from being seated to taking of drink orders was upbeat and professional. We ordered 3 small plates as appetizers and we were very disappointed with the calamari which was very tough to eat. I'm not sure of the glass size for the beer but it seemed somewhat small. The beer selection is the only thing this place has going for it. I ordered the pasta dish and the pasta was very doughy. Overall, all the dishes were either just edible or subpar with one complaint or another. The ambience is great but the food is not to be desired. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone but a beer lover.

    We took the family out for Mother's Day brunch. Dog and Cask offers a nice brunch. Plenty of choices. Overall the food was good. It was Mother's day, a very busy brunch day so it was crowded. We had to wait a bit for items to be refilled at the brunch stations. I would reccommend for a family brunch.
