Our first visit, friend told us about it and the MEATLOAF. Arrange for our group to dine. 4 of us had the meatloaf really looked forward to it all day. It was a generous portion with garlic mashed potatoes or rice and veggies. While it was good meatloaf and potatoes could have used a light gravy. Potatoes were a little... More

This was our best happy hour experience of this season! James did a superb job as our bartender, Claudia came in to lend her support at the bar, the kitchen did a superb job of preparing everything on the happy hour menu for our foursome,the beers and wines were perfect, and the 'regulars' in the bar made us feel right...

No matter when we go to Jonathan's Cork, we have a great time. The bar is lively and the drinks are great. Perfect place to meet friends. Excellent service too. Look for specials throughout the week that are very reasonable and delicious. This restaurant has succeeded because the food is consistently excellent

A small, cozy restaurant with a somewhat eclectic atmosphere. Our server was excellent. She advised us of their specials for the evening and was very personable. We both ordered the specially prepared salmon which was by far the best we'd eaten anywhere in our travels. Since we dined on my birthday I was offered my choice of dessert from a... More

Prime rib was amazing. Ostrich app good and artichoke was fine. Would have lived baked potato instead of mashed. Vegetarian pitons need to be worked on. We love steakhouses but son doesn't eat meat (or fish). Need eggplant Parmesan or something other than dry pasta with vegetables. Definitely go back for prime rib though.

Thanks for your comments, Michele. We're happy that you enjoyed your dinner. Most evenings we do have baked potatoes available. We will consider your recommendation for added vegetarian dishes on the menu. If you call ahead, the chef can make a very nice entree for you. Thanks for coming in! More

We stopped by on a Saturday around 4:30 and it turns out they have happy hour from 3pm until closing. We sat in the bar and started with some happy hour items, the mushrooms and prime rib strips. The mushrooms are sautéed in an oil and spice mixture that was amazing, just wanted to lap it up with the bread... More

Not sure why, but each time we go to Jonathan's Cork we say we should eat here more often...and then it falls off our radar screen.

Go here for top notch American food! We have been here several times and find the food and service excellent! I particularly enjoy the prime rib. Fresh fish is offered daily and my wife really enjoyed the poached salmon on our last visit. Our friends love the meatloaf and the liver and onions. Servers are friendly and knowledgable, and the...

60's - 70's era steakhouse that has kept up with the times but not lost the intimacy we remember. Food was still as we remember, and chef visits your table. Excellent dining and experience.
