A Trip for Fish & Chips

Whether you’ve just stepped off the ferry or you’re out ‘n about in town and your midday hunger strikes, look no further than Cask and Schooner situated just up the hill from the Friday Harbor marina (around the corner from the ferry landing).

This maritime themed, English-style public house boasts fresh caught seafood, locally grown organic ingredients and a fabulous selection of craft libations. From hand-battered Cod Fish and Chips washed down with a Washington brewed IPA, to their free-range Lamb Burger paired with a New York Sour cocktail, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find so much more than just “pub food” on the menu here. There’s plenty of seating so when it gets busy, wait times are minimal and during the summer months, a small section of outdoor seating is offered. Plus, they have a late night happy hour so if you’re not ready to call it a night, head on over for a night-cap or small bite to eat.
