Great brunch menu for weekends. Cranberry mimosa is excellent. All brunch items were reasonably priced and delicious with generous portions. Someone in are party ordered the shrimp and grits and really liked them. My chicken and waffles were good as well. Extremely friendly server and attentive. Would definitely go again.

I was extrememly impressed with Cask. From the free valet service as soon as you get there, to the amazing food and drinks, to the awesome DJ they had the Sunday I went for brunch. It is the perfect place for Sunday brunches. Thoroughly impressed and would recommend to anyone! Will be going back again!

I love the food/drinks and ambiance of Cask! But, let's just say, we don't go there for the service. The wait staff needs some serious training... greeting tables, costumer service/really just being friendly and not robotic, knowing the menu, etc. Every time we leave Cask (I've probably been there at least 8 times) we say the same thing about the service, so I decided to leave a review this time. Hopeful it might bring about some change.

My husband had the biscuits and gravy and I had the steak and eggs. Unfortunately our food was over cooked and more like diner food at outrageous prices. The steak was burnt on the outside, very chewy. Eggs had been sitting under a heat lamp for a bit so they were very dry. We live north of Tampa so when we get a chance to eat downtown we take it. Scratching off the list.

My first time at Cask, overall the experience was very nice. The food was really good. Their mason jar punch beverages taste like different variations of martinis; if you like martinis then try the mason jar drinks/punches. I switched my to drink to a standard go "Hurricane", it was okay however I think the bartender is probably excellent at making the drinks listed on their drink menu but when it comes to ordering off menu he could use a little help. Overall I would definitely recommend Cask for your dining pleasures and you have to judege the drinks for yourself.

We were not overly impressed. Food was good but not worth the high prices. They gave us popcorn when they brought us water. It was a fun, different touch, but still kind of just plain popcorn. The server was nice, not real friendly, very clinical.

Made a reservation for 2 before hand. When we arrived we requested to be outside they could sit us outside but we had to leave in an hr and 15 min for the next party. When we got outside their were multiple open tables but they sat us right by the door. We asked if we could sit at another table but we're told we couldn't. We ended up at the bar. Food and food service was good but the host/seating staff was not accommodating and rude about our requests. I wouldn't go again for brunch.

Great dining experience. We ordered the truffle deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes caprese appertizers. The eggs were delicious! The green tomatoes had a nice crunch on the outside with an awesome balsamic vinagrette. I originally ordered the crab stuffed ravioli but was later told that they were out of it, my only disappointment of the night. Got the seafood carbonara, very good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. My friend is a very picky eater and she said she would come back. That is a great compliment!

EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED ! ! ! Took almost 30 minutes after ordering to tell us they ran out of one of the dishes... waitress never came back to see what replacement dish we were going to choose to eat WITH OUR TACOS... took 40 minutes to make (4) tacos... Short staffed and no manager on duty.

I called the manager the next day to share my experience (I believe you can't improve/fix problem if you do not know of the problem). She (one of the managers) told me she was sorry but wanted the general manager to talk with me. I was supposed to get a call the next day but that was weeks ago.

Unfortunately one of our meals came out with wax paper in it and my eggs were completely over cooked. We were all disgusted by the wax paper so we didn't eat our meals. This was our first time here and they comped our meals but charged us for our drinks. They should have comped the entire bill and maybe we would go back. On a good note this is no reflection of the server, he was amazing!

I loved our food and enjoyed the wait staff! The problem with the restaurant this time if year is the dining room is HOT! OMG! They have to open the "doors" to the open patio and the WHOLE restaurant heats up! It's 94 degrees out there! Not enough circulation can compensate for that heat! They need to contact a good AC group and remedy that situation NOW! It'll cost business in the long run.........at least during the hot months and in Florida that's April to November!

Figure it out! It really made the wonderful food less remarkable!

Food was great and the service was great, however it was too hot. They kept telling me that it was because the doors to the front porch were open, but being in the Hvac business for over 30 years, the problem is poor design someone did not take the time to consider that these doors would be open, and there are options on how to keep the air in and not let it out into the open. If this was my business I'd be suing the contractor who put the system in.

The buffalo cauliflower is amazing. The tacos were ok. The chicken taco was over cooked and dry. The steak taco was super tough. The fish taco was my favorite of the 3. The Tuna Tartar was delicious! The muscles were pretty good. They cook them with sausage and it's a bit salty.

Service was a little disappointing. Our server was friendly, but disappeared for quite a while.

I used to love going to Cask, the food is great and the atmosphere is amazing. Unfortunately, my recent experience with their customer service has influenced my decision to never eat there again.

My friend and I went there for a quick lunch, and was told by the waitress that bottomless mimosas were $3 and bottomless bloody mary's were $5. My friend and I ordered the bottomless mimosas for $3, because hey...it was only $3. When I received the bill, I noticed we were each charged $20 for the bottomless mimosas, naturally we asked the waitress about the mistake and she suddenly snapped and said that she would have never said they were $3 and she says the "same spiel" every time. She informed her manager, and her manager came out and said that her staff is well trained and would have never said that. To which I explained that my friend and I heard the same thing, and would have never ordered a $20 bottomless mimosa when we had somewhere to be and were on a budget. She didn't sympathize and said she would speak to the owner. After speaking with the owner, she said that she could charge us even more since we had 3 glasses (our 3rd glass was currently full) and said that $20 was cheaper anyways. Anyways, they did nothing, and charged us $20, didn't apologize, didn't offer a discount offer for a future visit. HORRIBLE customer service, basically called us liars.
