Feast on creative, southern-style seasonal fare at Cask & Larder. Its warm and homey setting is great for enjoying a meal with the entire family. Cask & Larder owners, as well as chefs, James and Julie Petrakis opened its doors to create a welcoming neighborhood spot for guests to feast on food made from scratch. This restaurant offers appetizers like rock shrimp, southern ramen with miso pork and spicy turnips or goat tamales. An entrée of catfish with a bacon-malt aioli, quail with a sausage and apple stuffing or crab spaghetti will satisfy the palate.
Cask & Larder was named One of the Best New Restaurants in America 2014 by Esquire Magazine. It crafts its own beer on site and offers other beverages to pair with meals. This restaurant hosts events throughout the year and caters private celebrations.
We were in town only for the weekend in October, had been recommended by friends, and boy we were glad we went. The bar was comfortable and had great craft cocktails, and their own beer which we enjoyed before being seated for dinner. The food was delicious, and both the food and the ambiance were a nice, contemporary take on southern. We were very sorry to learn they were closing the dining room and that was the very last night for the restaurant in this form. Changes were coming, and there would be more emphasis on it's sister restaurant, the Ravenous Pig. We will definitely give it a try it the next time we are in town!
They are closing this location, so look for them at the Orlando International Airport. They will be missed in winter Park
Very expensive and I was served a super slimey piece of fried chicken... the manager told me they are closing soon so they are using up their inventory... lol gross and way over priced. I did get fantastic service at the bar and at the table... cocktails were awesome... but $12 for a small drink.
The food and beer were terrific. The best shrimp and grits I've ever had.
My friend came in to town and I wanted something different,Cask and Larder surpassed my expectations.The menu was so unique we took a long time deciding what to order.Our waiter was patient with us and his service was excellent, it did not hurt that he was quite charming. We had a wonderful time catching up and will remember this night and Cask and Larder.
Menu items can sell out fast. But fresh high demand items do that, so dine early.
I absolutely love this place!! The menu is exciting and changes often and the food is absolutely amazing! Nice variety of food and drinks and everything is fresh! Highly recommend!
Service was impeccable. Food tasted great nice presentation. Attention to detail. Definitely recommend
The oysters we ordered for our appetizer were very salty, small, and we're not tasty at all. We told the server, but all he did was tell us that he would tell the chef. We were still charged $30. The two samples of beer that we asked for came out in a small glass that smelled like bleach or some kind of dish washing detergent.
The food was outstanding. Nadiir's service was excellent.
This was my second visit to Cask & Larder and I won't be back for a third. My food was cold and grossly overpriced for what was just average. The ambiance is incredibly sterile. A real miss considering the owners, concept and location. Very disappointing.
This casual restaurant with upscale food is a favorite. The chart Charcouterie board is lovely as is the rest of the menu.
Cask and Larder provided the perfect setting to linger while catching up with an old college friend from out of town. We had not visited one another in nearly 15 years and had a lot to talk about. Our waiter was patient, giving us plenty of time to talk while quick to provide drinks when we asked. The brunch was delicious, southern grits and bacon at their finest with yummy biscuits and pepper jelly. The gravy for the biscuits could have been better seasoned. We found it pretty flat despite the chunks of sausage. Overall, it was a nice brunch and I will return.
The local connection to area flavors and food types was great. My cobia was overdone. My dining partner's cobia had a piece of dark substance in the middle which was inedible. The small pieces of sliced corn cob took imagination and some sawing to harvest in order to eat. A small round cob would have been easier to handle.
Brunch was so good. The Chicken & Waffles amazing
We were blown away. We tried it via Magical Dining...the server was so nice...not like other Magical dining venues where servers were actually rude. The food blew our mind and we have told lots of people about it and plan to come back often!
I used to love this place but I'm less impressed every time I come now. Nashville hot chicken was once my favorite dish in town. Had it tonight probably for the last time. Small pieces of boney chicken with a side of mac' n cheese. There used to be more going on with this dish.
Finally tried it when a friend visited town. Interesting cuisine and nice ambience
Tradional flavors assembled in a non-traditional way produced a tasty result.
Simply awesome it is our go to in Winter Park.
We love to sit at the pastry bar!
Simply put, the food was phenomenal.
The food was awful (over salted and not cooked through).
The wait staff were indifferent to my complaints and just shrugged their shoulders
Would never go there again nor recommend to anyone
My husband has been wanting to try Cask & Larder for some time so we decided Magical Dining was a good opportunity to try it out. We liked the "southern country kitchen" atmosphere and my husband enjoyed the Magical Dining $3 house-brewed beers. Our server, Brad, was attentive and personable. The Magical Dining menu presented more choices than the online version, which was nice. For starters, we ordered fried green tomatoes from the regular menu to have with our cocktails, then I had the pemento cheese ham jam which was tasty and not too filling. My husband had the pork belly appetizer which was quite good. For the entre, I had the Nashvile hot chicken and he had the flank steak. Both were very good. For dessert, we both had the fried dough which was excellent. We really love the whole Cask & Larder concept.
Enjoyed Cask and Larder with colleagues during Magical Dining in Orlando. I really enjoy this restaurant and have been numerous times. The menu for MD featured a number of their regular dishes. The Pork Belly appetizer was delicious and a very generous portion. I ordered the Nashville Chicken for my entree. The Mac and Cheese served as a side was so good, very creamy! The chicken wasn't what I expected as I've always known Nashville chicken to have a hotter sauce than what was served. The donuts for dessert were good but not something I would generally order for a dessert item. Overall we had a good experience. Our party was catching up with each other and enjoyed the atmosphere.
Went out with some coworkers - crab & corn hushpuppies, fried green tomatoes, avacado bacon deviled eggs, butcher's board, pot pie, Nashville hot chicken (OMG!), succotash, cornbread, sweet canaveral shrimp -- we're all a bunch of foodies, & we agree that this was one of the BEST meals that we've ever had!
The restaurant was amazing from the hostess that greeted us to the bartenders that explained everything about their menu. The food was amazing, the drinks were beautifully hand crafted ... Overall awesome dinner and I cannot wait to go back!
Service was very attentive and Caring. One of the steak dishes was ver salty and had to be returned. Staff was quick to offer a replacement. Other dishes were good. Dessert good as well. Would come here again for certain meals. Menu is different and worth trying.
Food was pretty good, but seemed to lack the creative energy and unique tastes that I have experienced on previous visits. Service was fine and the restaurant was packed with people, so there was definitely a "buzz" during this early Saturday night evening.
Accomodated my vegetarian diet. Delicous kale salad! I could eat 10 of those and I am not a fan of salads at all. It was pretty noisy so not great if you're looking for good conversation. Much more of a fun gathering of friends kind of vibe. Would go back, would recommend to others.
Amazing food, wonderful service, great atmosphere.
Everything about the place was 5 stars. Everything. There are a lot of restaurants out there that should come take notes.
We went here for Magical Dining. The choices were varied and delicious. The portion sizes were perfect. Every bite was wonderful!
Food took a very long time and wasn't properly cooked
We arrived the smell of a wood stove. Amazing service staff and price fix menu for Magical Dining made easy for to select choices. The atmosphere was somewhat unique. It reminded of Williamsburg, VA.
We enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the service.
Our meal was excellent as usual. This time we went with the magical dining month menu, which included a Nashville hot chicken which we talked about for the rest of the evening. Love love love this restaurant and will always speak highly of it.
We go to Cask and Larder often. We always enjoy the food and the change in menu gives us a good selection.
Sorry to say our food was not good. The Pimento cheese
was nice. My kale salad had too much bacon grease . Steak would have been ok but very very salty. All food was to salty.
Brad our server was excellent .
Always something new and truly unique on the menu. The cocktails are incredibly and inventive and the beers are truly original flavors. The beer flight is a fantastic way to sample several varieties at one sitting.
