Always well-prepared, always attentive service, nice low-key atmosphere. We eat there 2 or 3 times monthly.

Mother’s Day: The service was great, as the waitress was very nice. My mother-in-law and wife’s food came out wrong, the potatoes were drenched in old bay (I understand Marylanders love old bay, but I literally had a hard time eating them). The owner/manager was extremely apologetic and compensated us. Perhaps we will try this place again, as it received such great reviews, but just not on such a busy occasion.

Food was good, server was friendly and attentive. They advertised hash browns with their brunch sides, but they don’t offer hash browns. Hash browns are grated potatoes, they had quartered potatoes commonly called home fries. Overall decent experience.

Dinner was good but roasted brussel sprouts were under cooked making them difficult to eat. Everything else was delicious.

Restaurant is one of our favorites and we will continue to frequent it. 😊

We usually go to the cork at least once a week. We truly enjoy the staff, they know our preferences and always give excellent service. The owners are very hands-on and the chef is always changing things up. Super spot to unwind for the weekend.

This is not a bargain restaurant but worth every penny. The down to earth atmosphere and ambiance complements the out of this world food. Over a course of several dinners, paired tastings, and a brunch, all of the food was excellent to outstanding. Cocktails are great, including several interesting martinis, and the wine list is another excellent feature of this little restaurant with a big personality.
In addition, there are several specials and events every month that are detailed on the website. I highly, highly recommend this restaurant for a special experience.

Cork was on point, yet again. They never disappoint. Our table was set and waiting for us as soon as we walked in the door. With tonight being St. Patrick’s Day, we opted for the Irish fare instead of the normal menu. Everything was excellent. Our waiter, Cole, was fantastic and took great care of us. We are always extremely pleased with our dining experiences at Cork.

First time, went out to dinner and it happened to be St Paddy's Day. I WISH the potato and leek soup special were a daily menu staple. My mother's mahi order looked a bit tiny compared to other dishes, but everything was well prepared and delicious! Will definitely go back for a night of small plates and drinks.

Although the food was great, our waitress certainly had attitude. When we asked for bread, she said they don’t usually provide it but she’d get some. So she brought a small stale baguette that was inedible. She never smiled and really acted as if it was an effort to wait on us. If this had been my first visit, I would never return. But I’ve been there with different servers and had a great experience. What a bummer for a romantic date night.

I have never had a bad experience or any "bad" food at the Cork. Everything is always delicious!! The Valentine's Day menu was incredible and certainly reasonably priced. Four courses and a glass of champagne for $49! Entrees included filet mignon, scallops, lamb chops... Highly recommend!

We usually enjoy County Cork but this visit missed the mark. We had a reservation but were seated at an awkward high top stuck between a booth and the coat rack, other people’s hanging coats were actually bumping into my husband’s back. Avoid sitting here if possible. Also, my go to meal choice, the tuna tacos, were cold, the tuna wasn’t properly seared and the avocado was missing from two of the three tacos. Service was fine. Hopefully this was an off night...

i went to this place when it first opened quite a lot. I had a couple bad experiences and did not go back until this past weekend. It was fair at best, food fair, wine selection poor and ambiance fair. Very disappointed, this place has a huge opportunity to have great local organic food being surrounded by many farms. the food was more like a Friday's or Ruby Tuesday to me. I would not recommend this place and suggest you go to a few miles down the road to Turf Valley area where they have more updated menus and great selections of Restaurant choices. It is a shame being so close to our Eldersburg neighborhood this is no longer on my want to visit list. I will say that Nicole was our waitress and she was outstanding.

Four of us went for dinner during Howard County Restaurant Week. We thought the selection contained a good variety. The Thai shrimp were delicious. The buffalo cauliflower was not. Strip steak was cooked perfectly. Blackened swordfish was tasty but not spicy.

We were a bit disappointed this time. The food was just average. We went to brunch on a Sunday but everyone ordered something different from the menu. I had the waffle sandwich (recommended by the waitress as a favorite) - the waffles were tasteless and dry even with syrup. My son had Eggs Chesapeake and the egg was overdone, nephew had an omelette which was okay, my brother had the tuna rolls and again just okay. No one loved their meal and wanted to return. I was disappointed as I had lunch here about a year ago and really liked it. Maybe because it was a Sunday? Not sure.

The timing was quiet and semi-empty seating. The service was excellent and the food was moderately good. I tend to stick with the appetizers because I don't care for the cooking oil used often in the main entrees. I like the change up every once in a while, but it is not my favorite restaurant.

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
