    Underwhelming and overpriced. Limited vegetarian options (which is typical of Billings), but what was most remarkable was the small portions of the fish and chicken for the prices we paid, in a very generic space. There are better restaurants in Billings with more affordable pricing.

    Our waiter was top-notch… when one of the meals at our table didn’t make it out with the others (10 mins later) he made it right. he also made it right by bringing a second HOT toddy as the first one was not. we were happy to be out enjoying time with family were most pleased by waiter intervening before we even had a chance to bring things to his attention.

    Flew in from Dallas and found this place on Open Table. The menu looked super interesting and it did not disappoint. The food was fantastic. Our waitstaff, Allison, I believe, was exceptional! The wine menu was comprehensive and very well priced. I was impressed all the way around. Next time we are in Billings, we are definitely coming back!

    Having recently moved to the area, I have been consistently impressed with the variety and quality of food options at Cork & Barrel. The salmon is excellent, with a nice variety of beans, pasta and greens to accompany it; delicious and ample serving. Steak frites is one of the best I’ve had; again, ample portion of perfectly prepared, delicious meat. Save room for dessert; I tend to stick with the chocolate terrine simply because I always remember the last time I had it. And the service: as with the food — consistently as hoped for.

    Meh. Salads were so late that we were unable to finish before the entrees arrived. No one cleared the salad plates. They did provide separate salad forks which is missed too often. Water wasn't topped off until we were essentially done. Salads were adequate. The Caesar salad included some ingredients I'd not seen before. I had high hopes. Not sure that it was in improvement. My wife had the fish and chips. No real flavor. One piece looked good from the top but when turned over you could see there was little fish. I had the gnocchi. Again not much flavor. It was filling but so is cold cereal. If there's a next time I'll order differently.

    The selections should cover everyone’s favorites from light fare to steaks for the gentleman. The salads are creative and fresh. If you just want a burger you are covered. I though the titles for the kids meals were very creative and worth a chuckle!

    I meet a girlfriend once a month for dinner and we found your restaurant to be amazing. We would love to have heard more music, but chose to eat in the dining room. Next time I think will eat in the bar, I love the comfy chairs service was totally amazing and the food was beautiful. Aroma was great and taste was wonderful Thank you.

    Food was good. But our server was not. He got our sides wrong. Dropped the food and left the table without asking if we needed anything. When we finally got our tab, 2 hours after we had sat down. It was wrong. He didn't even remember what we all had to eat or drink.

    All servers and staff very friendly. We were seated right away. Very loud, in Dining area. Could not hear across the table well. Honestly very busy and took a while for both food and drinks to make it to the table. One order out of the four delayed. Food was closer to a 5 . Great flavors. Great presentation. Servers was present and working hard . She just had too many tables at once and not much extra help. My fork was taken with clearing of appetizers and could not get anyone’s attention to get a new fork for over 5 minutes. I can’t wait to go back and try it again!

    We went for Valentines Day. The ambiance was great, the server did a good job. He never refilled waters but was there when we needed him. Food came out in a timely manner. We had the rib-eye and burger. My steak was a tiny bit overcooked but still good. The Augustine potatoes were kinda blah…did t have a lot of flavor and the asparagus was huge. I prefer smaller more petite asparagus so I didn’t eat them. Overall was good…I’d go back but not on a regular bases.

    Very disappointing! We went for Valentines Day and they had a special menu that looked very good; however, the soup and salad were mediocre, and the crab cake was just okay. The fillet was over cooked, chewy, and tasted like nothing but char. The green beans were undercooked and very crunchy. The garlic mashed potatoes were okay. The lemon tart dessert was inedible as it had a horrible flavor. The waiter brought me a dessert drink for the overdone steaks, without asking me, and then charged me for it. For the amount paid for this special menu, I expected so much more, not worth it!

    We love dining at the Cork and Barrel but would love it if you could do something for the noise level in the main dining room. Last night we moved to a corner booth next to the patio in the Bar b/c the dining room was so noisy again. Please, please, add some better sound proofing for a better experience 😃

    Good food. Great service. We liked the atmosphere except for the overhead lights. The lights, especially those over the booths, are way too bright. It’s like sitting under a spotlight! It’s frankly very irritating and takes away from what would otherwise be very nice ambiance. Seems like this would be an easy fix. Just replace with different bulbs or put them on a dimmer switch.

    The hanger steak was amazing, not too much food, but I would have liked a little more mashed potatoes. The meat was tender and tasty and cooked exactly the way I like it. The fries and the delicious dip were unique and best I’ve had. The salmon was cooked perfectly, definitely not dry and seasoned well, nothing particularly special, but very good.
