Cask Republic having opened in December of 2013 artfully fuses the familiarity of an American-style tavern with the authenticity of European taverns of yesteryear. A Communal Tavern, the concept is simple; exceptional food globally inspired, a world class beer program, extensive spirits and wines – all housed in an atmosphere befitting that of a sophisticated urban respite.

Don't miss sitting near one of the two cozy fireplaces located in the Tap Room and Fireside Room.

Chef Carl Carrion has designed a menu which elevates global tavern classics to a new level through his seasonal preparation of quality ingredients.

It was great to have brunch despite the current situation (coronavirus pandemic) going on in the world during this time!

We came here for a date. He’s a big beer guy and the selection did not disappoint. I’m a cocktail gal, unfortunately my first choice wasn’t available but my second choice (a grapefruit forward cocktail) was available and delicious.
We chose to share small plates and tried the pesto Mac and cheese. Mac and cheese is my favorite food so I was a tough critic with this one, and it was also delicious. The Korean bbq flatbread was also really nice but seemed to be missing the Brussels sprouts on it that the menu had promised. The cauliflower was delicious and so were the beef empanadas. The food was eclectic and very satisfying. I recommend.

Everything was wonderful. the only thing that was a little annoying was the noise level. However that is probably to be expected since much of the crowd was there for a concert being held at the adjoining Palace theater. It wasn't enough, though to keep me from going back. We made a great choice.

A nice place for brunch and/or just some drinks. I loved the fireplace, the bar area and the menu items especially the cider with the kicker and the lamb pastrami!

It has a great location and ambiance, the music was nice too. However, we experienced some hiccups along the way. When my friends order first arrived (a salad with salmon on top) we were confused since there was no salmon. We searched around for our waitress to tell her the problem but couldn’t find her. I believe their mistake and quickly brought out the correct one. Not a huge issue, so we continued with our meal. I ordered the lamb sandwich which had incredible taste, but was so soaked in grease and oil I couldn’t eat the bread. I understand it’sa heavier dish but it was actually dripping into the plate. Overall I think it has potential but there needs to be some improvement.

Cask Republic is a great place to grab a bite before or after a movie - good wide selection of foods. its a bit dark and a bit noisy when full. We really enjoy the flatbreads, the shrimp, etc. great selection

We sat in the back room where it was much quieter and we were able to talk without issue. The food is delicious. We shared several small plates. The cauliflower and Barata were both outstanding. Most at the table had burgers, Reuben or salads. They were all very good but the kale salad was excellent. The service was ok, not great. We needed a little more attention to water glasses and refills on cocktails. All in all it was a lovely evening and I would recommend the restaurant

The food at this pub is a hidden gem in Stamford. This was our ~ 5th time there and every time we are blown away by the quality of the food. We invariably get 4 or 5 small plates to try lots of things and everything is amazing. Their short rib meatball small plate is crazy good. Thanks Cask Republic!

I ordered the cask burger, it tasted horrible. The waiter did take the burger off our tab since it was bad, I appreciated that. Also, their Stamford Restaurant Week choices weren’t great.

We have been to Cask Republic many times before and enjoyed it every time. We went to the mother's day brunch. It was very disappointing. The food choices were very limited. There was fruit salad, green salad, stale croissants and a few other pastries, cold french toast, potatoes, cold salmon eggs benedict, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. There was also overcooked prime rib. Well done. There was no prime rib for about 30 minutes. When I asked for some more, and asked for it to be more rare, I was told it wasn't ready and I needed to wait 15 minutes. Pretty poor planning. After waiting 20 minutes or more, I did get some which was a little less well done, but still more well done than even medium. Oh, and dessert was chocolate chip cookies - that's it.

Like I said, we've been there many times in the evening and always enjoyed it. Based on previous experience I thought they'd have an interesting brunch, and they had highlighted that they'd have prime rib. Don't go for brunch.

Easter brunch tasted great and our waitstaff was attentive and nice but the kitchen goofed and it was frustrating because the restaurant was empty when we ordered. The sandwich I ordered was a salmon BLT. Menu said it came with aioli on it so I asked for it on the side. Sandwich came with it on the side but apparently, after going back and forth a bit with multiple waitstaff, it was determined that the kitchen puts mayo on the bread and it’s also toasted with some butter. None of this was on the menu as part of the description. I ended up eating when my husband was 1/2 way through. Frustrating. I cannot digest certain things easily so I think it should say that the sandwich comes with mayo and aioli. The food was really good so my issue really is with what the menu indicates.

great service at a busy time, food was tasty and well prepared, great drinks and waiter's help with beer selection was a perfect hit. It is noisy in the bar but we sat in the back room and the noise level was perfect.

Disappointing. It was St Patty's Day so I ordered a special- Sheppard's Pie. I love Sheppard's Pie! Sadly this had no taste or flavor. They were very nice and took it away and offered me a substitution. I made the mistake of ordering the chili- too similar. I am sorry to say I make a much better chili so it was disappointing. In my party, several people had the burger, which they very much enjoyed, fries also good. Our other friend also ordered a special- pizza with mashed potatoes cabbage and corned beef. Sadly there was hardly any corned beef on the pizza special.

I would recommend depending on what you are looking for. It was extremely noisy and full of college students busy taking advantage of bottomless belinis. I did not appreciate the noise level, but others would be ok with it.
