Great beer selection and good food (the burger and the parmesan fries were excellent)! Didn't have a chance to try the cheese/meat platters but the quality of the cheese looked amazing. All in all a very worthwhile place to grab some quality beer and a good meal!

Good beer selection but menu a bit limited. Good burger though.
Fries hot as a Mofo!

People say Eli Cannon's is the craft beer bar in CT. I think then that it would make Cask the craft beer mecca for CT.

Food is creative and delicious, albeit pricey (hey it's downtown New Haven).

Beer is phe-nom-en-al! So many taps of so much real craft. I always get something new when I go there. Everything rotates. The cask selection is usually OK, never really had anything amazing from it.

Service is attentive and knowledgeable. Crowd can be a bit pretentious at times, due to its proximity to Yale, but I've never had a problem with it. Can be a bit noisy as the night goes on and goes from dinner to bar crowd.

Mediocre bartender with mediocre knowledge. Tap list was better than average but nothing too wild on draft. It is a nice large bar with good bar seating and communal seating.

Really nice wooden bar and great tap selection. Had an order of wings with a couple beers and everything was outstanding. Second round i ordered a Spencer Trappist ale and kicked the keg 3/4 of the way through the fill so got it free and really enjoyed it and the price was right.
Over all the place is well worth the visit and will stop by again when in the area'
My only complaint was that they were having a fruit fly problem , went out for a smoke and came back to find two in my beer. Fished them out and went back to sipping on my beer .

Great place ....good selection and service. Beware of parking meters 30 minute max...they will take your money and not add time...on the plus side was able to park right outside so feeding the meter was manageable.

We have been here 3 times now, each afternoon visits.
Space is well laid out, lighting good, not to loud. I can see that change with 200 people.
Staff is attentive without being overbearing. The menu is well curated, and the beer list is comprehensive.
We each had 2 small plates and 2 drafts, the value to expense is solid. Not inexpensive but well done.
Enjoy a trip to New Haven and check them out.

Cheers all
