Great filet and shrimp

A quiet upscale bistro in quaint town. Try the French onion soup. Very good. Nice selection of very affordable wines.

I had a wonderful beet salad and the best fresh Cod dinner since I ate fresh cod on the pier in Gallway, ireland where the fish was as fresh as could be. This was a memorable salad and fish dinner. And, a very nice Pinot Grigio as well. An unexpected find in rural Ohio. Excellent food at a very reasonable... More

Side by side with Stubby's, they are share ownership, a kitchen and some menu items. Cork's is a nicer atmosphere, less of a bar, and has emphasis on entrees rather than sandwiches. Delicious meals and good service every time we have been there.

The food was quite amazing. The service was also quite good. The servers knew the menu quite well and answered our questions without stumbling.

Our recent visit to Cork's on an autumn Friday night nicely exceeded our expectations. Arriving around six, we had a choice of seating, and happily opted for a table by the fireplace in the back room--warm, cozy, and even a bit of atmosphere. The cocktail orders were handled with care; I'm can report that they know the meaning of "dry"... More

My mother and I hosted an bridal shower at Cork's Wine Bar and it was a terrible experience. After multiple changes with the event planner (clearly Cork's was having a staffing issue) we had to reach out to Cork's and confirm all of the details multiple times. When we arrived at the restaurant no one was there to let us... More

Small and quaint with good food and even better service. Jen the bartender is outstanding, knows her product and can make you anything. Especially good are her Chocolate Martini's! Definitely recommend this location to everyone.

I have to rave about this food. I was very hungry, but the appetizer of shrimp was enough to fill me up! It was in a tomato sauce with spinach, and really was also a "salad". Swordfish was the main dish and was very tender and flavorful. Great wait staff and wine! AWESOME!
