In Fort Wayne, the masses act like this is a Big Deal kind of place. It is a pleasant setting, and the food and service are good, but it is nothing special unless you have never left Allen County, Indiana. Yes--they have a salad bar, but you wait in a line behind people who think gobs of bleu cheese and... More

I went to Cork 'n' Cleaver with a business associate who had been there on several occasions. I was a little leery after having read some of the negative reviews. I don't get it - what's not to like about this place? It's a little dated and dark inside? Well, yes. But who cares? I thought that the food was... More

We went there after losing our last game in State Wars. We celebrated the great time we had in Fort Wayne and definitely chose the right restaurant. We loved the salad bar and our food was great.

We've gone to Cork 'n Cleaver for many, many years and I'm sad to say it's gone from being a real treat to just average. The restaurant itself is still lovely and the Southwest design helps you feel like you're on a mini vacation out of Fort Wayne. Wait staff no longer makes you feel valued, more pushy now. Food...

We visited for our annual office holiday party. I am not a big meat eater but I decided to give it a go and ordered the special which was coffee crusted steak. It was the best steak I have ever eaten. Definitely a memorable experience. Would surely go back - we just have a yound daughter so not really convenient... More

Anytime my husband or family asks me where I want to go for a birthday, anniversary, etc. I pick Cork 'n Cleaver, everytime, hands down. This place is my favorite, from their salad bar to the steaks and their awesome martini list I always choose them over any restaurant in town. Service is great and I have never had a... More

Stopped in for a birthday. The value is good. Excellent food and service. I wish you could sub the ala carte sides for the standard sides, but that doesn't impact the overall quality.

This is one of my Favorite Places to take my wife. We usually make this a special event. They definitely have the Best Salad Bar "PERIOD" For lower price - try visiting during the lunch hour! If your looking to make it a little romantic - ask for one of their booths.

This is a fine dining experience with great atmosphere, wonderful martinis, and amazing steaks. I am a local and this is where locals gather, however, most days you will find travelers of all walks of life that were referred to the restaurant. Dress is mostly business casual, although I have seen jeans and shorts in there and that seems to... More
