Good food but limited selection
This was an unexpected find and not a lick of disappointment. Our waiter was fantastic with a thorough knowledge of the menu and a great personality. The drinks were innovative (and not overdone), the menu was experimental but not off-putting. It's great for foodies but has things for the not completely experimental eater. This was such a treat and I fully enjoyed every bite I took.
The menu was far too complex for its own good and the wait staff wasn't knowledgeable enough about it to answer questions well. Expectations were high and it was okay but I won't be back.
Appreciated the great service and unique menu items. A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion such as Father's Day.
We love eating here. We had the fish (red grouper) and grits and the Nashville hot chicken. Both were amazing. Would highly recommend both dishes. My husband loved the Citra IPA.
This was my first visit to C&L. Went for Father's Day. A friend warned me that their brunch was nothing special. I should have waited for dinner. We ordered the pimento cheese - people rave about it, I didn't really care for it; biscuits and gravy with pepper jam - by far the best thing we had, particularly the jam; chicken and waffles - I thought the chicken was rubbery and overcooked, and didn't care for how spicy it was (normally I like spice but this was too heavy for me). My dad ordered the burger and wished it had been beef instead of pork. Total bill was $150 including tip, four cocktails and my 7 year old's side of biscuits (nothing else appealed to her). Overall, disappointing, but I still want to try their dinner.
I'm a fan of their dinner, but their brunch is just eh. I probably won't be returning for brunch with all of the other options around with better pricing.
We always enjoy our meal here!
When making a reservation for two asked to be seated on a larger table if available. Made sure to let them know we like to order a different variety of dishes to share so didn't want a small crowded table. As we arrived the hosted walked us to a high top(tall small tables usually found by bars) mostly used only for drinks. There was about 4+ visibly empty tables but as I mentioned the hostess that we had requested a larger table, she pretty much said it is this or nothing. "I cannot seat a 4 top on this small table, so I can only offer you this one, or a table by the bar area that is first come first serve". So we oppted for the bar area, and saw many couples come in and be told the same thing... having to, sometimes seat on a booth that seats 6 instead of a 4 top just because it wasn't on the main dinning room. Note that we were seating in front of the hostess stand.. seeing the interaction. As we get our first couple of dishes, we see couples being seated on tables of 4 in the dining room... making us feel instantly insulted since it seems the strict policy applied to us didnt apply to everyone. Being in the restaurant business I tried to make sense of the preference. For a second thought I thought it was because we were wearing polos and dress shorts, but as we saw people getting seated in the main dining room in tshirts and baseball hats, it wasn't a matter of dress code. I would like the restaurant to help me understand the situation since I made a reservation pretty much telling them we will be ordering many dishes which means spending money. Probably spending just as much or more than a 4 top, but we had to be sent to the bar area and wait for a table to be available when there were at least 4 tables clean and set on the dining room.First time, last time - Never coming back.
This was my first Cask and Larder experience that wasn't amazing. It took forever to place our order and even longer to get our food. That was a bummer bc when you have an 8 pm reservation and aren't seated until 8:30, the guests get super hungry.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Cask and Larder. We started with happy hour drinks and a goat handpie appetizer at the bar until it was time for our reservation. I really enjoyed their house-brewed Red Drum and it went well with the tasty appetizer.
For dinner I had the Fish and Grits, featuring fresh Wahoo, and it was fantastic! The plating was attractive, the ingredients all super fresh and tasty, and the flavor was wonderful. It was not an overly large serving, but not tiny either. My mother had the kale salad, and she loved it, too. Our server was friendly, helpful and efficient. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Our meals were delicious. I had a sampling of appetizers that were very good and offered a lot of variety. Our son had the burger, which was outstanding. The pork entree was delicious. But the true star of the table was the macaroni and cheese. The drinks were also wonderful, a variety of interesting craft cocktails that were different from the standard and appropriately boozy. Would definitely go back.
I've been to C&L several times and I am continually impressed by the quality of the ingredients, preparation, presentation, and overall deliciousness. The ambiance is warm and the drink offerings are also excellent with beer brewed on location and unique cocktails. Whenever I want to show someone the best of Orlando, I bring them here. You will have a hard time finding a better meal anywhere.
Cost, selection, and quality of food were inconsistent with the high cost. Not going back.
We went for brunch and I had the BLTE, which was delicious. The hash browns are fantastic as well. My friend had the chicken and waffles and was raving about it, but it is very spicy so be aware.
Food was amazing as always.
We had looked forward to a fun evening and that's exactly what was delivered. The food,mother service and he ambiance were terrific . We plan on becoming regulars.
The food was excellent. Our server was very attentive. I will go back again.
Really pricy for what is essentially simple southern food. Everything was good but nothing really stood out as great, the whiskeycello was the highlight
Had a great Sunday Brunch at this well reviewed brew pub. Farm to Table menu changes daily and the food was well prepared.
A must try is one of the brews!
Great service food and ambiance. A must try for a terrific culinary experience. Tables by the kitchen and interesting! A must do when in the area....
Eaten here three times!! When dinning out if I repeat it's because I've found something I really enjoy. When I go back I never try new things. This restaurant changes menus often. This last visit they'd removed the tots, they are the best!! The worst thing this restaurant could do is change the menu and remove the best part of it. Overall good food but not always tasty. The best is shrimp and grits. Not a big dish if you dont eat pork. They add two large pieces of sausage to it to make it spread smh, skippy dish if you don't eat pork. Biscuits n gravy 🙌🏽. Chicken wings (grilled or baked), Poboys are good as well and of course the tots!
Fantastic food for a great metal and experience! The drinks were delicious too
I found the food underwhelming and the hype I've heard about 'southern style public house' Cask & Larder to be unfounded. I ordered two dishes while my companion ordered one. She has Crohn's disease and asked for a few modifications to her salad. Her plate arrived with one of the foods she can't digest still in her salad. This was rectified quickly, but it was a shame she had to wait to eat while I began so my food wouldn't get cold. The tartine I ordered was lackluster in flavor and a small portion for the price. Notably I believe the avocado and the soft scrambled eggs were mixed together creating an unappetizing color and texture. I barely ate the eggs. Our server was not attentive to the point of having to ask another server for more coffee. The poor service really was the icing on this not appetizing cake of my first Cask & Larder dining experience.
We came here for the first time for dinner. We are small eaters and loved the variety of interesting things on the starters and shared plates. The low country oysters and roasted cauliflower were very good. Service was great. My adult lemonade was a little on the lite side of alcohol for a $12 drink, but when we mentioned it, they fixed it up nicely for me. Can't wait to go back and try other new things on the menu.
Used to be one of our favorite places in Orlando. This last visit was a HUGE disappointment. Food was average to poor and service was terrible (waiter seemed annoyed and put out and woukd disappear for long stretches).
Fun vibe creative southern comfort food redone
I loved it but probably not a good place for kids
Wonderful service and meal!
Great atmosphere,service and delectable food. Celebrated at brunch after my daughters graduation. At the end the surprised us with a yummy dessert that said congratulations in dark chocolate. A must visit when in winter park!
Requested and dined in the Brewery Room. What a memorable experience! Everyone had a different entree and they were all delicious. Generous portions.
The Brisket Hash was absolutely amazing! Our table also thoroughly enjoyed the Elvis Beignets.
The waitress was very knowledgeable and friendly. She recommended a dish I had never heard of before -- it was delicious! Wish I could remember the name. She also recommended the ice cream sandwich desert which my wife and I happily shared. Definitely worth the visit.
Cannot eat here often enough! Dinner was exceptional, the service first rate and the drinks were fun. Another amazing night.
This hidden gem had been on my radar for quite sometime. We came for brunch on Sunday. I had the shrimp and grits and my hubby had the chicken and waffles. He said it was the best he ever had. My grits could stand a little more seasoning but that's my personal preference. It was amazing. The service was great! We had a lovely time and will return.
Celebrating my wife's birthday in style with one of our favorite places. Never disappoints and always have something new on the menu. A+
Food and service were exceptional. From the ice blocks for bourbon on the rocks to the choice of beers the beverage service was great. Menu is inventive and the flavors were exceptional.
Have been to Ravenous Pig and Cask and Larder a dozen times between the two. Love them both; food is great. Cask and Larders focus on modern southern has excellent results. This time we both had fish--excellent! Whole Hog Nose Snapper!!!!
Although the food was decent, the menu lacked any of the traditional brunch staples. There was no array of omelettes or french toast or pancakes, etc. The chicken and waffles were spicy, so even that dish didnt really hit the mark. Without these staples, the meal was an early lunch during which patrons could purchase expensive mimosas--not a brunch with breakfast foods and mimosas that are bargain-priced. That said, the service was really good and the ambiance was nice. I would recommend at least having an omelette or quiche or designer pancake special that changes weekly or monthly; even this small change would appeal to more palates.
Food was outstanding. Expect a very loud restaurant. Service was great
