CURED Table & Tap is an exciting new restaurant in Columbia, Maryland that brings back fond memories of the neighborhood corner bar and the relaxing atmosphere that is created when good friends, great drinks, and classic comfort foods come together.
From the list of exceptional craft beers, to the creative cocktails, to the satisfying menu, CURED is all about crafting a laid back experience while still elevating the pairing of comfort food and thirst quenching drinks. Our goal is for every guest who visits us to feel as relaxed as if they were at their grandmother’s house (assuming their grandmother makes amazing craft cocktails and delicious food).
So if you're looking for a great place to meet up with friends, heading to a concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion right next door, or looking for something uniquely different but still wonderfully familiar, we'll make sure to save you a seat.

Staff and service were great! Side order of bacon was minimal and not very thick cut and the flat bread was a little boring but everything else was delicious. The french toast sticks/short rib/poached egg were definite hits! We'll definitely go back!

I brought a group of friends from work after talking about Cured for a month. Everyone loved it! The mussles we're excellent as was the tots with pulled pork and flat bread. We all also ordered dinner and the burgers were top of the list as was the meatloaf. There were choices for our meat lovers and our vegetarians. Lots of choices and high quality. Service was also excellent even with our large group. Not only will we be back, but several from the group have already been back or made a new reservation.

We had brunch with friends
We got there before any crowds
Love the small plate brunch entrees
Everything we tried was great from the short rib hash to the chicken and waffles
Shrimp and grits were great as was the duck confit cinnamon roll ( sounds odd but was really good)
Great food
Great atmosphere!!

Thank you Cured, for making a great date night fantastically special. Upon arrival we were offered the private MedStar room which was not in use. It was perfect, allowing the 4of us privacy and the ability to hear much better than in the main dining room! The food was great and in the room we did not feel like Rebecca, our very attentive server, had forgotten us. She was great and had fun with us during the evening. Great food, but it was a little disappointing that so many of our cheese selections were out at 8pm on a busy Saturday. We had a great evening, enjoying the food, drinks and atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Looking forward to experiencing 18th & 21st!

This is the second time we've eaten here. The service leaves a lot to be desired. The wait staff seem overburdened and too busy to check on their patrons. No one asked if we needed anything or if we were enjoying our meals. The food is not bad but the poor service over shadows the experience.

Our reservation was at Cured for lunch but we were also planning a dinner outing and asked the receptionist if we could get a peak at 18th and 21st. She happily complied. We also met the woman who manages 18th and 21st and she went above an beyond explaining when we should make reservations is we were coming on a Wednesday night versus other nights of the week. She even stopped by at our table while we were eating lunch to chat some more. Our server was very attentive. We were discussing business so lunch ran pretty long, but she continued to refill our beverages and didn't bother us about how long we were there. Everyone was wonderful.

Loved the idea of a "tapas" style brunch! Now, one no longer has to choose between eggs and pancakes---you can have both! Everything was well prepared and beautifully presented. We had the French toast sticks with 5-spice infused maple syrup (I'll never be able to eat plain maple syrup again), the Breakfast Flatbread, Short Rib Hash, and Chicken with Waffle. All were delicious. Four items in total were perfect for my husband and me. Most importantly, the coffee was plentiful and HOT (I hate when coffee is served anything less than slightly below boiling temperature!). We will be back for brunch at Cured.

Cured was so wonderful! Awesome drinks -- fun cocktails, lots of good beer, and wine -- and a wide selection of good food. The staff was so friendly and warm, and so accommodating. Such a great new spot in Columbia!! I only gave 4 stars because it was a busy night -- a little loud and service could have just been a touch faster. But overall an amazing experience.

So far we have visited twice, with friends. Both times the service was terrific (but it was the same waiter each time.) The ambiance in Cured is great, and we visited the (closed at the time) 18th and 21st and were very impressed with the decor and look forward to having dinner there. The food at Cured was very good. First visit I had a burger and wish it had been hand-formed instead of formed in a mold. The second time I had the crab cake. It was pretty good but has a lot of competition around here so it wasn't great by comparison. Presentation was very nice.

I have been here 4 times. Unfortunately this time we were seated in the bar area in front of the doorway to the more enclosed seating area. (I asked if we could be seated in the more comfortable dining area and was told no space was available for a party of 6. There were several adjoining tables for 4 empty) It was very noisy and the traffic around our table was significant. My friend who was at the end seat of our table was knocked into several times. The metal chairs in the bar where they sat us were extremely uncomfortable.
