Miss the chef

Food was great. We really enjoyed a more "uptown" option for eating local. The menu was always changing and I was always happy with the specials. Their menu has been combined with Stubby's. Good, but not quite the same.

My wife and I went to dine here at 5 pm yesterday. Only 2 customers in the restaurant. A young woman behind the bar asked if we had a reservation. We said no, and she then left us and went into the kitchen. When she came back, she turned us over to a server with an attitude, who told us... More

Being new to the area and having a relative visit who needed gluten free food, we were thrilled to find Cork's. We made reservations which was silly as there was only one other table of patrons. I don't understand why as the atmosphere is great and food very good. My husband and I both had the Guinness onion soup. It... More

This is my favorite place in Lorain County. Amherst is a destination place and this is one of the reasons. You can start your evening having a fine dining experience here and then hit the drinking establishments within walking distance. The food is excellent and the drink list is expansive. The wait staff has been awesome and knowledgeable every time... More

This very very good restaurant with totally reasonable prices lacks in only one area. There should be MANY MORE customers! Tuesday from 4 - 7 is happy hour with reduced prices on drinks--and all evening wine is retail price--so if it costs $10 in a store, that's what you pay! The food is really quite good--the filet is excellent and... More

I'm really surprised that on my numerous visits this spring this place was not more crowded. It's a really nice atmosphere. I even caught their Jazz Night several times. And, no matter what you drink, Cork's likely has your favorites and even something unique. I loved the Crispin Cider on tap! A great place for happy hour. And, a very... More

Great appetizers and even better entrees. It's a bit higher on the cost side but worth it. The service and quality make up for the extra in your bill.

The food was absolutely delicious! And for the taste the price was very good. Cork's is attached to a bar too so there is a vast selection of beer, wine, and whisky!!

Nice to find a restaurant locally that has a unique menu, good food and reasonable prices. My husband and I recently had a meal there on a Friday early evening with another couple. A variety of options depending what you want from appetizers, sandwiches to full menu. Handy parking and outside dining also. Attached to an established bar so a... More
