A couple of days before Christmas, my wife and I and four other couples(friends of ours) planned to meet at the Cork and Pig for an end of the year get together. Some if us had not been there, but had heard about how good the San Angelo location was, so we were looking forward the experience. One of our friends emailed us that they had a table reserved for the group at 5:30pm that evening. My wife and I arrived early, at 5:10pm, only to be informed by a very dis interested young lady that, "we don t do reservations" and "when will the rest of your group be here?" The restaurant was less than 1/4 full. So, we waited at the door until the rest of the group began to arrive, and we were seated just after 5:30pm. We were obviously misinformed about having a table reserved. My mistake.
As the evening progressed, we ordered food, which I found to be just OK, the service was slow, and the drinks were poured short (in my view). In fact, some of the other people in our group complained to the waiter about the drinks. I am single malt scotch drinker, and at $10 per, I expect to be able to savor the spirit. And, when my wife and I ordered a pizza, I ordered a glass of the house Merlot when my pizza came to the table, only to be told by the waiter that he, couldn t take my order for another drink until my glass was empty.
Some folks I know have said, "It s not like being in Midland" at the C&P. "It s the only place in Midland you can get micro brewed beer". If that is your criteria for a good place to eat and spend time with friends, then good for you. But for me, I was underwhelmed, and will not be back any time soon. Too many rules, and cheap with the drinks, food just OK.
