Cask and cleaver is a great place with very good steaks and one of the best salad bars around. Service is always good and the beer list is top notch and always being updated with local finds.

Service was terribly slow, lighting was too bright for a Cask and Cleaver (felt like a Denny's), Calamari was an absolutely horrible, soggy, mess...couldn't eat it. At these prices, we felt we were scammed and would NEVER return, under any circumstances! This was not a Cask and Cleaver, as they used to be! We called it an expensive disappointment!

Service was terrible. Had to order my beer twice to finally receive it. Sad when the beer list makes it a destination.

Good but not overwhelming salad bar. Reasonable selection on the menu with appropriate pricing. Well informed servers that are friendly and helpful. Food quality and preparation are in line with the price. Enjoyable dinner.

We have been going here for many years. While not an outstanding restaurant, you can always count on it to satisfy your appetite. The service was excellent, the food good, but not gourmet.

The food was great but the service was lacking. We had to call for our waiter to get service.

We had not been to this location in many years. We had a 5:30 reservation and arrived 20 minutes early. We were seated immediately. Everything was very good. The food was prepared to order, the service was great. We will be back.

When we first got there we had reservations at 8 PM, but they put it down for 730 instead of eight The door was locked and the hostess was very upset when we arrived at our 8 o'clock reservation She said they were already closed but management found our reservation and seated us anyway This left me with one of the most uncomfortable Mother's Day's I have ever had Our service was slow and the three of us felt unwanted I ordered the prime rib dinner with vegetables When the order came my vegetables were completely raw and not cooked The waitress then left me the option of the salad bar since I had uncooked vegetables There was barely anything left at the salad bar and I was very disappointed in the selections I understand that it was the end of the evening however my meal was over $30 so I still expected some quality to it This was one of the most disappointing Mother's Day meals I have ever had The one good thing that came out of it was a delicious prime rib that was cooked and tasted perfectly well My husband and I decided we would never want to go back after this experience This is the first bad review I have ever written up on a restaurant and I am 58 years old I have had many years of experience dining out and this is the first bad review I have written Wish I had more positive things to say

My wife and I are semi-regulars at Cask 'n Cleaver and have been for many years. This recent experience was not one of the better ones we've experienced here. The service was not great nor was the food. Their claim to fame is the salad bar. Many salad bar items were either not there or in short supply. Other salad bar items did not taste as great as we have become accustomed to. It took 45 minutes to receive our steaks! Steak meals always come with onion straws--none were served this time. Upon asking, was told they would check. That person never came back. Overall, we were very disappointed. However, in their defense, it was Mother's Day. On the flip side, most of the big crowds were gone by the time our meal was finally served, so there is really no excuse for the poor service. Will we go back? Probably, but it will be a long time before we do.

When making my reservation I specifically asked if they were open for brunch on Mothers Day. I was told yes. When we get there, there is no brunch just the normal menu.

I had the ribeye steak (which was very tender and flavorful). My father had the top sirlion, which he complained was quite tough

Dinner time expect the band in the bar to start playing which actually sounded good. Food is good nothing to write home about though. Service was good. San Dimas lacks good dinner houses so this is probably a good one for a decent steak.

We were at Cask and Clever to celebrate our 23rd Wedding Annivesary.
Our waitress Christina gave us outstanding customer service.
The food was great.
I had the New York Strip and it was one of the best I've ever had. My wife had the Blacked Salmon and it too was the one of the best she's ever had.
We will definitely be going back to have dinner and when our friends "Relativity" are playing in the bar.

We had a very enjoyable family dinner for my husband's birthday. The steaks looked wonderful, but we were there on a Friday during Lent. My husband and I can't wait to try that prime rib sandwich for lunch very soon. The service was excellent.

I have been to this location many times. However; this time the wait was long, and the food was cool, not hot. The service is usually very good, too. Not on this night, though. Of course I will return, but perhaps more servers are in order. Thank you.

Through Open Table we received same day reservations to this top rated restaurant. The steaks we ordered were just right and fabulous. The service was top notch and the band took it to another level. Great atmosphere all around.

We have always had a great meal and service, no matter a casual date or celebrating an anniversary. We go early so we can have a drink and the bar then we sit for dinner. Recommend to anyone.
