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.

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!

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!

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.
