The County Cork Wine Pub Ratings and Reviews
Great New Year's Eve celebration at The Cork. We have been here many times and the service is great, the food always superb and a nice small restaurant atmosphere. The guitar/vocalist played most of my favorites (without me requesting anything) and was very good.
My wife and I had dinner at the Cork on New Year's Eve 12/31/2017. The dinner was served in courses and each was delicious. We enjoyed our dinner and dessert with a great Black Ankle wine and kept up with the Ravens game. It was a very very nice dinner and atmosphere. Thanks again!
Food was ok. The place is small, and has a very quaint atmosphere. We went for Sunday Brunch on Christmas Eve, and was surprised no specials. I got the corn beef hash, there was way too many potatoes and was on the dry side. My son got the chicken and waffles. The chicken was heavily battered and cooked to a brown crisp. My daughter got an egg with crab, and she said it was good. Our food was lukewarm when served and the place was not crowded.our waitress was not very attentive.
This is a place to try, as I have been here several times, however it is a hit or miss.
We had bottomless mimosas for $12 each. I drank my first one and asked for a second. Server wouldn’t bring it to me until my friend finished hers. But then a guy server came over later and brought me one right away. Mostly orange juice. Not a good value if you only have three. Chicken and waffles was only half good. The waffle is pretty hard to mess up, the chicken could have been better. The end pieces were burnt and breaking off. It was breaded in corn meal or something funky. Not good. Server never quality checked us and the mimosa situation was weird.
I love this place ! They have monthly wine tastings . They really get to know you so yes they know when I go in what I'm going to drink and eat. Have specialty nights . Tuesday half price wine bottle night and Thursdays $5 martini nights . Oh they are so good . I have never had a bad meal . I've eaten brunch, lunch & numerous dinners . One of my favorite spots as my friends & family will tell you . There is outside seating but the view is parking lot & Rt 26 but you get a wonderful breeze . My favorite is their filets . Perfection and the staff is so friendly and caring
Great place with great food. The only down side was they brought some one in to sing. It was loud. They tried to turn him down but it was still loud. They have a nice restaurant. Leave the the singing to the larger bars. Just wanted to enjoy the good food and wine along with good conservation.
Four of us had lunch here. It was not crowded so it was quiet and the service was fine. It is an interesting luncheon menu because some of the usual items are not offered, like a tuna fish sandwich or a BLT. The combinations of ingredients in their lunch offerings are interesting and delicious, on the gourmet, adventurous side.
Our minor complaint is that one of us had the grilled vegetable/spinach salad, which he said was very tasty, but sparse on the grilled vegetables. I had a small plate with mushrooms in a filling and it was delicious, but small. I could have eaten two of them! Our friends had the crusty fish sandwiches which were good and big.
So two of us wanted more, and two had plenty, all delicious.
The monthly wine tasting/small plate pairing is always a treat with well thought out menus for both wine and food. All wines were from Washington State and also affordable by the bottle. The food pairing matched perfectly from the appetizer oyster stew in a shell with a dry elegant Riesling to the dessert pumpkin mousse & chocolate shavings with a rich dark Cabernet Sauvignon.
Troy, the wine rep, was on hand for wine info. He always energizes the event with his knowledge and great sense of humor. Arlene, the owner, was always at hand to make sure everyone was having good time and wanted for nothing.
Our party of six added a flatbread and then dessert after the tasting to finish offf the evening.
Last minute reservation. Loved the spicy Thai shrimp as an appetizer but wasn't as spicy as the shrimp a at a previous visit. The pasta of the day was excellent with spicy sausage and a red pepper sauce. The small plate crab cakes were good but I like the regular sized ones with spice & corn. Medolo beer and a nice Savignon blanc were good liquid accompaniments.
Great and friendly service. Accommodated gluten free choices ok without too much compromise of chefs creations. Would like to see gluten free pastas. Creative dishes. I had shrimp with cucumber and watermelon. Although lovely presentation the flavors were not blended. Some marinated time would solve that. Shrimp were a tad bit over cooked as well. I also had rockfish. It too was lovely presentation but a bit over cooked. Others ordered pasta and mussels and were very pleased. Marrying flavors without disgusting each ingredient and watching cooking time would have given my experience five stars.
Arrived with young child to immediately hear another customer swearing. We were told they were being asked to leave so we decided to stay
It was 20 minutes later when belligerent customer finally left. Manager did stop by table to apologize but not much can make up for that 20 minutes we could not enjoy our time with our daughter. Food was not good. Small amounts and left a lot to be desired in taste. Would not return.
Granted it was a Friday night; but reservations were made requesting a high top table, away from heavy foot and door traffic. We were offered the only high top table available; right next to the bathrooms and kitchen. They should remove that table all together or just use it for staff for another purpose. We choose to be switched to a booth. The server was attentive and the meal was easy with appetizers, cheese board, salads and wine. Not much to boast about. I am not a big fan, but wouldn't hold anyone back from dining here.
I thought that the food was good not great . I thought charging 2 dollars for bread was ridiculous . The salad should be included in the price of the entrees . Also, was my birthday and had that on the reservation and the waitress did not even ask if we wanted dessert . Not impressed 😘
Server was very friendly. Booked a table on OpenTable and had special requests about allergies which were relayed to the server. However, I got the $28 Ribeye steak special and the steak was barely edible. The first time it came out RARE, then when I sent it back and got it a second time it was more Medium Rare but it was almost ALL FAT. It was not a good cut of meat. Definitely not worth the $28. I've had Walmart Steaks better than that. At lest the Crab mac-and-cheese was delicious. Don't order the steaks. Also, I checked off Birthday on OpenTable and the server did not do anything about it. Usually you get at least a scoop of ice cream with a candle. Not a very good experience.
Comfortable 20 minute drive from Owings Mills, my husband and I enjoyed an excellently prepared meal and great drinks. I had the fish and chips; he had a burger and fries. BUT we were tempted by the ruben, shrimp and grits, the steak special of the night. I had the peach sangria. He had unsweetened ice tea. for desert, we shared homemade PEACH ice cream. A generous single serving which we could not finish. We will return. Service was excellent, server was well informed. He recommended the crab cakes. Well,,,,maybe next time.
The Sunday brunch menu is versatile and varied. The Cork even has mussels on the brunch menu. My stuffed french toast was verrrrry tasty and nicely presented. Side of bacon was just as crisp as I had ordered... crisp bacon seems to be difficult for other restaurants.
My companion's omelette was so large she took half home for later.
Mimosa's and bloody mary's were available with the brunch.
Had my birthday party there recently and was extremely well pleased with the way the staff handled to group of 35.
Made a reservation on very short notice, and was able to get in within 30 minutes. Greeter very friendly, seated us promptly with menus, and light banter. Server showed up a bit later: she had several tables assigned, and was quite busy. Still, food came quickly, at good temp, and was top-notch. Dessert was a unique orange-flavored creme brulee: excellent! Overall, a nice dining experience: we recommend!
