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

We were referred to this restaurant by the staff at our hotel while passing through Fort Wayne. We loved it. The salad bar was great, lots of fresh items and great dressings. The pepper steak and the salmon special were wonderful and we enjoyed to fresh bread.

This is an outstanding restaurant for steaks. They have a coffee crusted steak which is very tasty. The meals come with an all inclusive salad bar which also has many items to choose from.

Fancy place with good service. The food was also good. It was not anything to brag about. I got the salad and soup bar with a side of shrimp. Prices were a little high.

I travel to Fort Wayne fairly often for business but this was my first visit to Cork 'n Cleaver. The service and the food were excellent--all three of us really enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is a bit old school but has an inviting atmosphere and excellent cocktails. They have a salad bar which is unusual in a restaurant of... More

I have been here many times, and the service is always excellent. The teryiaki steak and grilled shrimp are very good. I am not a huge fan of salad bars, but this one seems better than most. Overall, no complaints.

Seriously this is a blue hair restaurant with an ancient menu. I had a lunch and a dinner recently that were quite forgettable. There is NO seasoning on any of the food, the steaks are dry and not worth the effort. Sure the salad bar is good but.... The service is still good, but they are relying on a reputation... More

The food was amazing and so was the service. The salad bar was excellent with many items to pick from. My husband and I picked prime rib for our entrées. It was fantastic. The best prime rib that we have ever had at a restaurant. We ate in the bar and the atmosphere was very nice for couples. Our waitress... More

We had a wonderful dinner there recently, and have had before, time after time. The salad bar is possibly the best I've ever seen. It's fresh, varied, ice cold and has interesting and pricey items that one does not find in a typical salad bar. We had a little birthday party and they made it fun for the young person... More

My wife and I enjoy dining at the Cork 'n Cleaver any chance we can. They have excellent service, and the food is always very good. We will typically get the filet which absolutely melts in your mouth! The wait staff is very polite and very knowledgeable of the menu and wine selections. If you are looking for an intimate... More
