Good choice in NOTL.

Very chilly day for June 1st but the heated patio was perfect. We had fish and chips and it was lovely but way too many fries. Our server was prompt and friendly. I think it is overpriced but it's what you expect in NOTL, we would return and recommend.

The ambiance is very agreeable. We sat on the patio and enjoyed that a lot. Two of our party had salads; one complained that there were no anchovies in her Caesar salad. I had spanakopita with a salad and found it to be good. On the downside: there were lipstick marks on my water glass. The coffee was good, and... More

Lots of food in the day's special. Disappointed that the patio was full and had to eat inside. Very busy. Food came quickly and hot.

We went to Corks after battling with indecision over which restaurant to go on our last day at Niagara-on-the-Lake. The server was certainly very friendly, the patio was nice, but the food left much to be desired. I had the Fresh P.E.I. Mussels, while my husband chose the Blackened Flax-Encrusted Cod.

We dined at Cork's Restaurant because we were with our children and they had dined their before. The Fish and Chips were fabulous and the service outstanding. We wanted to watch the finals of a basketball game and while ice hockey was on, they were more than accommodating.

This is an okay place for a burger and a beer. The lamb burgers are actually pretty good. The sort of outdoor seating area is pleasant. If the place is not busy - say 9 pm on a Thursday in March, the service is alright. Any other time it is hit or miss and more miss than hit. Hard to... More

Stopped in for a lunch on our travels through the area. Cute little place with an outside covered area...perfect on a beautiful sunny day. They are apparently known for their fish and chips, so one of us had that, and was not disappointed. Fish was cooked beautifully...with a lovely crisp thin crust on the fish...chips were tasty as well. Another... More

There are much better options in notl. Service was okay- but not helpful. They are not allowed to do any modifications to their meals- (ex - won't take mushrooms out of a pasta dish). Wasn't impressed - makes me believe their food is pre made and not fresh. Fish and chips were good. The rest of the menu was boring.

Ordered phylo cheese appetizer for $10. When it came there were four 1 1/2" long pieces of tastless stuff. Upon ordering they would not substitute anything for the french fries that came with the schnitzel. I ordered a bottle of water and it was definately tap water put in the nestle bottle. That is the only liquid I drink so... More

We decided to try out Corks as I have heard good things and we were wondering around NOTL. Our waitress was a doll and made a wonderful red wine selection for me. I said "I know the reds are not known here but there has to be a fan favorite, what do you suggest?" Her recommendation was great! My husband... More
