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.

We have been to Cask Republic many times before and enjoyed it every time. We went to the mother's day brunch. It was very disappointing. The food choices were very limited. There was fruit salad, green salad, stale croissants and a few other pastries, cold french toast, potatoes, cold salmon eggs benedict, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. There was also overcooked prime rib. Well done. There was no prime rib for about 30 minutes. When I asked for some more, and asked for it to be more rare, I was told it wasn't ready and I needed to wait 15 minutes. Pretty poor planning. After waiting 20 minutes or more, I did get some which was a little less well done, but still more well done than even medium. Oh, and dessert was chocolate chip cookies - that's it.

Like I said, we've been there many times in the evening and always enjoyed it. Based on previous experience I thought they'd have an interesting brunch, and they had highlighted that they'd have prime rib. Don't go for brunch.

Easter brunch tasted great and our waitstaff was attentive and nice but the kitchen goofed and it was frustrating because the restaurant was empty when we ordered. The sandwich I ordered was a salmon BLT. Menu said it came with aioli on it so I asked for it on the side. Sandwich came with it on the side but apparently, after going back and forth a bit with multiple waitstaff, it was determined that the kitchen puts mayo on the bread and it’s also toasted with some butter. None of this was on the menu as part of the description. I ended up eating when my husband was 1/2 way through. Frustrating. I cannot digest certain things easily so I think it should say that the sandwich comes with mayo and aioli. The food was really good so my issue really is with what the menu indicates.

great service at a busy time, food was tasty and well prepared, great drinks and waiter's help with beer selection was a perfect hit. It is noisy in the bar but we sat in the back room and the noise level was perfect.

Disappointing. It was St Patty's Day so I ordered a special- Sheppard's Pie. I love Sheppard's Pie! Sadly this had no taste or flavor. They were very nice and took it away and offered me a substitution. I made the mistake of ordering the chili- too similar. I am sorry to say I make a much better chili so it was disappointing. In my party, several people had the burger, which they very much enjoyed, fries also good. Our other friend also ordered a special- pizza with mashed potatoes cabbage and corned beef. Sadly there was hardly any corned beef on the pizza special.

I would recommend depending on what you are looking for. It was extremely noisy and full of college students busy taking advantage of bottomless belinis. I did not appreciate the noise level, but others would be ok with it.

A great place to meet up for drinks or dinner before or after a show. Great drinks, warm and inviting atmosphere and comfortable booths. The pesto mac & cheese is outstanding and the salads and burgers were great. It would be great if you added a veggie burger to your offerings for the vegetarians among us. Also, service was relatively attentive but they never came to refill our water glasses and were rather in a rush to take away our plates in a way that felt pushy.

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner at Cask. The atmosphere was cozy, they played wonderful music, and the food was excellent. Their burgers are always wonderful, but I had the squash and ricotta gnocchi which I thought was incredible. We thoroughly enjoyed our drinks as well— the mulled cider with Jack Daniels honey was a highlight. Our server was very friendly, helpful, and the manager was lovely. Our family has spent many a holiday at Cask and we love it here. Thank you again to the staff there for making our first Christmas Eve away from home such a pleasant one!

The food is very good here, but we went early to avoid the noise, which is unbearable after 6PM, so there were just a few people there and it took forever to get our food. When it did come, my empanadas were overdone and a bit greasy. But the baked oysters are great and the salads are good. Small plates all the way for me.

The food here is always great. The lamb pastrami Reuben is my go to. The beer selection is always interesting and you’re bound to find something new.

I usually come mid afternoon and the one thing is service is always a bit lacking in terms of someone coming to your table to take your order and occasionally checking in to see if you need another drink.

Although a somewhat limited menu, the selections were reasonably creative. There were about 10 small plate offerings to choose from and 6 large plates, with 3 or 4 salads. The kimchi quesadilla was the tastiest of our selection - the kale salad was ok - a little sparse on the accompaniaments. The mixed burger (brisket, short rib, and ground sirloin) was decent, although nothing exceptional. The strawberry rhubarb crumble for dessert was a highlight as well - very well constructed and tasty
