Wow and thank you! Five stars and an incredible accolade about The Cork! Comments like that make this all worthwhile! Thank you again.
Wonderful place with great servers and food!
Thank you Bonnie for the 5 star review. Glad to hear you enjoyed our food and the service! We hope you visit again soon.
Excellent food!! Ate there twice last weekend. Friday night dinner service was excellent. Sunday brunch it was a little slow. Had to ask for refills twice. Overall, will definitely be back!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for the 5 stars! Sorry to hear brunch service was a little slow. We do get very busy during brunch but we always try to stay on top of our game. If you encounter a problem again, please don't hesitate to ask for a manager or the owner, as I'm usually there every brunch and would love to make sure its going smoothly. Great to hear you will be back and hopefully become one of our regulars!
First time and we really enjoyed our meal. We had the seared scallops and the chicken pot pie, as well as a cheese board for an appetizer. A great wine list, too!
Hi Dean, thank you for the 5 star review! We love first time customers as we hope to make you one of our regulars. Word of mouth is our best advertisement, so please let your friends and family know of your experience at The Cork! We hope you visit again soon.
Had another amazing dinner! Cork Wine Pub never disappoints! Great food, service and ambiance!
Hi Aimee, thank you for the 5 stars and amazing comments. We love that you love it here and visit often! We hope to continue to earn 5 stars on every visit.
We love this place!! They actually cook the food there and the quality and taste is one of the best in “The Burg”
We love the Cork. First time back in over a year because of pandemic. Same friendly atmosphere and great service. They seemed to have changed out the shrimp and grits to a chipotle sauce which made it a little too spicy for me, but it says chipotle sauce on the menu so serves me right for not asking. If you like moderate spicy, still a great dish. The corned beef was a little dry, but overall still a good dish. We continue to highly recommend the Cork.
Hi Bob, thank you for taking the time to write a review and the 4 stars! If you ever encounter a problem on your visit, please always ask for a manager or the owner, so we can rectify the issue.

Best crab cakes ever!!
Thank you for the 5 star review and so glad to hear you loved your crab cakes! We put a lot of love and experience into our dishes and happy to hear you enjoyed!
As always, the food was just delicious. It’s a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, and the service, impeccable. Great wine list, too. We love it there and go as much as possible.
Hi Hayley, Thank you for the awesome review and 5 Stars! Sounds like you visit often and we truly appreciate all our customers but our regulars are why we are still here!
I took my mom for Mother’s Day and we had a very nice lunch. The staff was exceptionally nice and accommodating. Rueben with garlic fries were delicious!!
Thank you for the 5 star review and so excited you were in on Mother's Day. We hope you visit again soon.
Great food, good service.
Thank you for the 5 star review!
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.
Thanks Carolyn for the 5 stars and kind comments. We hope you visit again soon and now with no masks!
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.
Hi Doug, first let me apologize for the late response to your review. Thank you for taking the time to rate and review your dining experience. I'm sorry to hear that the crab cakes fell short. If you visit again and encounter any problem, please ask for a manage or owner so that we can rectify the problem immediately. We want all our customers to experience awesome food and service. We can't always guarantee it, but we can try and make it right. Thank you again for your comments
Absolutely love this place! Great food and drinks, friendly staff!!
Thank you for the 5 star review and appreciate the wonderful comments. Sounds like you visit often and we are most grateful for that. We hope to earn 5 stars on your next visit and always!
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.
First let me apologize for the late response to your awesome 5 star review! We so appreciate our regulars. We wouldn't be here today without loyal customers like you. So glad you enjoyed all aspects of your dining experience. We can't wait to have you back soon. I'm not sure of who Foodie is, so ask for me the next time you are in!
It was all great.
Thank you for the 5 stars and your comment says it all!
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.
Hi Gordon, Sorry for the late response to your review. Also my apologies for your experience. I had spoke with the server that waited on your table. Some of the servers are not familiar with all the wines on the list. If you dine with us again, please ask for me, Arlene, and I will be more than happy to recommend a wine to pair perfectly with your dinner.
Delicious as always. Food took awhile but was worth the wait!
Cant wait to go back!
Thank you Heidi for the 4 star review and appreciate your patience with the long wait. We look forward to having you back soon and if you encounter another problem, please don't hesitate to ask for a manger!

First time eating at the cork since the Covid. Did carry out many times but ate at the cork this time. Great food and service. Still consistent even during the pandemic.
Thank you so much for the kind words. We do strive to earn 5 stars and so glad you noticed. During Covid it has been challenging so we are excited to receive your review!

Hi Jackie, So wonderful to receive 4 stars on your first visit here. We look forward to having you visit again and we will strive to earn five stars from you next time! Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
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
Well I wish you weren't Anonymous because that was a fantastic review and five stars! We so appreciate your kind words and wonderful to hear your experience was perfect. The Cork has been here for 10 years and with reviews and experiences like yours, hope to be here 10 more!

Delicious food great service!
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.
Wow five stars and a fantastic review! Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review. So glad to hear you enjoyed your visit and it sounds like you are a regular! 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!

Nice small hometown place for a brunch with upscale dishes!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and the 4 stars. We are known as the best brunch in the 'burg, so we are so glad to hear you enjoyed having brunch at The Cork! We hope to see you back again soon.
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!
