I only made the noise level "moderate" because there was a baseball game, the Olympics, and a rugby match on at the time. Even with all this, it was easy to carry on a conversation.
The menu had many varied choices and I had a difficult time choosing which to order.
Food was excellent as well as the service.

Extensive wine list and more than adequate beer and mixed drink list. Half-price 2nd entree on Sunday afternoon--but you may need to remind your server. Owner charming and took time to chat. Server (name?) really listened when we made a request.

We have been eating at this restaurant since they opened. Great food, service and reasonably priced bottles of wine. When they first opened, there were a few dishes we didn’t like. Example - anything with ‘smoke’ flavor that had an artificial taste. We’ve been half a dozen times over the past year and it was delicious each time.

Located in nondescript strip center, nice surprise. Creative, eclectic menu, nice selection of brews and wines. Low key atmosphere. Casual yet attentive service.
A nice surprise in Eldersburg.

First visit in maybe a 100 years for us, but definitely worth the wait. 17 minutes from Owings Mills. Delightful menu with tasty treats and choices. Terrific wine selection as well as local and big brand brews. Large bar. Comfortable, relax service. Nice portion size. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We had perfectly seared ahi tuna, short ribs and burger. Next time, I'm getting the steak with crab & mac chees and Brussel sprouts.

Reasonably priced too.
Inline in a non-descript strip center across from the mall in Eldersburg. Worth finding.

My only comment is about the potatoes that were served with every meal. They were fried in Old Bay and sugar. We had to ask for regular fries. I’d suggest that you give your guests a choice instead of serving the sweetened potatoes with everything.

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.

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.

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.
