Good service and a wonderful charcuterie board made this a pleasant experience for the mouth. Just wish I'd brought some ear plugs!

We were very disappointed. Went there for dinner and to watch a playoff game. They obviously didn't plan for the crowd they had, as they only had one server and one bartender.

We had left Canada and were headed to NY. A Nor-Easter was in the forecast so we decided to leave early stop close to NY and just stay hoping to miss the storm. We stayed at a horrible hotel ( see my review) and because we were just winging it, I mapped a few restaurants hoping they would be a... More

We ate here on a business meeting between 4 people. The menu is very interesting and has a wide variety of choices to choose from. The standouts at this dinner was the butternut squash soup and the chicken quesadilla, which had a bit of a kick to it. The atmosphere is very interesting and we all inspected the door to... More

I had the burger along with a few beers. The burger was mouth-wateringly delicious as were the beers. We were a large group of approx 25 who all wanted to pay individually. The staff co-ordinated this brilliantly and kept an accurate account of what everyone had. Service was not very fast but this is to be expected for a big... More

My three points were checked off! Ambiance, service & food. All 5 stars. They have a really large bar area & a fire place. The menu is creative & has options for all.

I discovered the Cask Republic via the back-door route through the Omni Hotel. It's a great spot - nice atmosphere, PLENTY of good craft beer on tap, an extensive mixed drink menu, and knowledgeable and friendly barkeeps.

I stumbled in here after a long train ride, looking for a place to set up shop for a couple of hours, get some work done, and drink a good beer. Was the perfect place! Excellent draft selection and a super nice bartender, plus free wifi. I'm all about it!

This place has the largest selection of beers on tap in the area. They are constantly changing them too, so it's best to check in periodically. If you like the seasonal releases from places like New England Brewing Co., then you will definitely want to stop in here. Food is delicious too if not a little pricey. Well worth the... More
