Great place to meet a friend after a year and a half of the pandemic! We both enjoyed our meals and the cocktails were fun and tasty. Staff as usual was very friendly.
Service was excellent. Food quality was good for the most part. Thai shrimp were excellent. Scallops were very good. Crab cakes were large but somewhat disappointed in the quality and consistency of the crab meat used as well as the taste. On a scale of 1 to 10, they were about a 6 -- OK but not great. Overall visit was fine.
We are regulars at The Cork Wine Pub. It is close to wear we live so very convenient. We started with Grey Goose dirty martinis - the best we have had in awhile. We had a charcuterie board that was really good and we tried two new entrees. We are typically creatures of habit and stick with the same things on the menu. This evening I selected the Mahi Mahi - which was a special - and it was fantastic. I am really picky when it comes to fish so I don't want it to smell or taste fishy. This was neither - very fresh and tasty. My husband got the Paella and he really like his as well. Our waitress was excellent and we adore the owner!! Nights like this one keep us coming back to The Cork.
It was fine but we were a little disappointed with the Wine selection and taste. Considering the name has "the county cork wine" in it we assumed it would have had a better wine selection and pairing. It was more of a pub with some wine. One of the popular wines recommended was Apothic Red which is a good wine but very mass produced. We like Apothic and purchase at the store because its inexpensive but nice and easy to drink. It would be like a brewery recommending a Miller Lite as a popular option. I like Miller Lite but would not expect Oscars Alehouse to recommend it.
The food was good and the wine was good but nothing to make us want to return.
Delicious as always. Food took awhile but was worth the wait!
Cant wait to go back!
Loved our Brunch! Excellent service. Definitely coming back. The potatoes with my benedict were SO good. Thanks!

Food was fantastic . I got the filet ( my favorite ) was cooked perfect & so tender ! Scalloped potatoes we so good I ate every bite which for me is unusual . My cocktail was spot on . Yes I drink Tito’s & seltzer but it was so good . I felt safe & comfortable eating inside . Staff was so courteous and cleaned everything when someone left . I was so happy to be able and see so many people enjoy being out .. thank you for a great night and keeping me safe

Hi Aimee, Thank you for the five star review! So glad you enjoyed our food and service! Our servers have been with us for years and enjoy serving customers at The Cork!
The food is always really good here. It is the perfect spot to meet with friends or go on a date night. Not a lot of options in Eldersburg for innovative cuisine and it doesn’t break the bank. The staff is always nice and helpful.

Being a small restaurant, we count on our regulars and we strive to earn five stars on every visit. The staff has been with us for years and we are like one family!

we brought guests with us this time and they enjoyed it as much as we did. they are being safe and seating people 6' apart. Everything we ordered was delicious. We will be back soon.
Hi Cindy, Thank you for the five star review and wonderful review. So glad to hear you brought friends with you and everyone enjoyed their evening. We are keeping up with all the restrictions to keep our customers safe. We hope to see you back again soon.
I made the reservation for a SAT evening. I was welcomed right away at the door and already given options of sitting at the bar or finding my reserved table. We decided to just take our reserved spot, and we were taken care of right away and enjoyed an outstanding dinner, bottle of wine, and a great experience. This was my 1st date with this young lady, and we had a blast. The restaurant sure took care of us, and we are going on our second date again very soon. This experience and the meal was outstanding. I sure thank The County Cork Wine Pub for a positive experience and a great evening with this young lady. This was very positive and meant a lot to me. I / we intend to return for future dinners and the whole experience. Thanks, again & make sure you make a reservation for this great restaurant very soon. You will be glad you did. Keep up the great work. Enjoy, and have a great week!
Hi Brandon, Thank you kindly for the awesome review and five stars! It makes us extremely happy to give the service and food that our customers have grown to expect and love. We very much look forward to having you back again soon with your first date again or just to enjoy some quiet time.
Love this restaurant. Exceptional service. Interesting menu options. Try starting with the cheese board with home-made ricotta.
Hi Lee and thank you kindly for the five star review. One of the many favorite items guests order is the cheese board to start the evening with. We do have food and drink specials weekly to keep the menu interesting. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.
We went for our anniversary and took our daughters. It was a very nice evening and our waitress did a great job
Thank you for the five star review. So glad you spent your special evening with us and were treated to a five star experience. We hope you come back again soon!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the Cork...the only downside to Brunch is the long wait for food. Took us almost an hour to get our food after ordering.
Very much appreciate the 5 stars and very complimentary review. However, I must apologize for the long wait for your food. That really is unacceptable. The next time you are in, please ask for me, Arlene the owner, and I will make sure this doesn't happen again. Our brunch can be very busy, but that's no excuse for an hour wait for you food!
You can't go wrong at The County Cork Wine Pub! Although the name brings attention to their wine (which is excellent), you should also know that the food is fabulous!!!
Hi Marci, thank you for the comments! Many people think by the name we are just a wine bar, but we have an extensive menu, where most everything is made from scratch. Appreciate the 5 Star review! Not sure if you know we have a fabulous Sunday brunch as well!
My husband and I love this place for a quick date night close to home. Social distancing and health/safety measures are practiced with diligence. It’s a nice respite with delicious food and friendly service.
Hi Corky and thank you so much for the wonderful review. Glad you live close and enjoy The Cork! We do try and take measures to make all safe (employees and customers alike). We hope you visit soon. When able to do so, we have live music on Fridays and Saturdays.
Even with COVID restrictions it was a great night and the food was delightful. The happy hour specials were so good we had to bag up dinner and take it home.
Thank you kindly for taking the time to post a review. So glad to see we earned 5 stars on your dining experience and how much you enjoyed the food. We have nightly specials, as well as innovative dishes and cocktails every two weeks, so check out website and visit again soon!
Fantastic food. Incredible menu. Great options. Wonderful atmosphere. Would and will visit again.
Thank you Jonathan for the 5 stars and wonderful review. Reviews like yours makes it all worth while! We will keep up the good work and look forward to having you back as our guest.
Great Food. Great Service. Great Value. We’ll be back.
Thank you for the five star review and wonderful comments. So glad you enjoyed your visit and we hope you come back soon.
Nicole is the best server ever!!
Thank you for the five star review! Nicole is the best...I will be sure to show her your comments. Next time you make a reservation be sure to request Nicole.
Everything was great. We really enjoyed our dining experience.
Hi Samantha, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at The Cork. I noticed you only gave us 1 star in all the categories, but your comments were very positive. Please let me know if there was something we did fall short on during your visit. Hopefully you'll be back to visit soon!
My husband and I go to The Cork just about once per week unless we are traveling. This trip my husband ordered from the Restaurant Week Menu and all was delicious and a great value and I got the Spinach salad with the Ahi Tuna - the tuna was delicious!! We always start with Grey Goose dirty martini's - a little extra dirty and Nicole always make sure they are just right!!! The staff is always friendly and welcoming! We love this local neighborhood restaurant!!
Wow Foodie!! Thank you so very much for the five star review and incredibly kind comments. We always strive for five stars and love every time we receive them! Appreciate your support of The County Cork Wine Pub, we do love our regulars! I'll be sure to pass your comments onto Nicole.
Food was great. Waitress was very helpful with recommendations.
Hi Harry, sorry for the late response, this must have got passed me before. Thank you kindly for the five star review and positive comments.
Great live music Drew Stevyns always outstanding!!! Fantastic Classic chicken pot pie!!
Thank you Daniel! Appreciate the kind note. So glad you experienced a 5 star visit and Drew Stevyns is phenomenal (as you know!). I think we are going to keep the chicken pot pie on the menu for spring/summer since it seems to be everyone's favorite dish!
Pretty average food , good but nothing exceptional
Hi Jeannine, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. So sorry you were not happy with the food you ordered on your recent visit. If something ever falls short for any reason, please do not hesitate to speak with a manager or the owner so we can address any problems. We do make everything from scratch and our meats and seafood are ordered almost daily. If you should visit again, please ask for the owner if there are any problems on your next visit.
Food is great. Menu is small but everything is really well made.
Thank you Michael for the 5 stars! We make almost everything from scratch, even our cheeses! There is a lot of prep that goes into our menu so its hard to have a larger menu. Having said that, we almost always run specials so there are new items all the time. We hope to see you back again soon. Thank you again for taking the time to write a review.
We went for Valentine's day dinner on Friday night and there was a fixed menu. Unfortunately the fixed menu was not clearly stated on the website. I assumed it would be clearly written on the front page of the website but only found that there was a fixed menu once I found the calendar of events. I was disappointed when we arrived because looking at the menu online I was very interested in ordering off of their small plates menu for a tapas style dinner. Right now they are doing a promotion for music every Friday night and the musician (Mark Jacob) was absolutely fantastic. The waiter was very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We ordered the thai shrimp appetizer and that was my favorite of the night. I would go back but hopefully without a fixed menu!
Thank you for the 4 star review Megan. I'm sorry that it was not clear that we were offering a prix fixe menu for Valentine's Weekend. To make it affordable for those that didn't want to do the prix fixe, everything on the menu was offered a la carte. I'm so glad you enjoyed the service, music and food! Please come back to enjoy our regular menu and we do have music most every Friday and Saturday night. Always check our website for more information.
All is well at The County Cork Wine Pub. The service, appetizers, food, drinks and atmosphere are the perfect setup for a relaxing evening with friends. Thanks again!!
Wow Janet thank you for the kind words and the 4 star review! We truly try hard to give excellent service and food every time and so glad you noticed. We hope you'll be back again soon.
