It's no value

As a local, I've eaten here numerous times for business and pleasure. There is nothing "wrong" with the Cork, but for what it cost to eat here, I expect more. The steak is good, not anything substantially above par (Shula's, Ruth's Chris, etc) but you pay for every bit of it. In truth, the... read more

Cork 'n Cleaver has an terrific salad bar. There are a variety of different items to choose from. We've never been disappointed.

When you want to have a really nice dinner, The Cork is a Fort Wayne go-to. You can never go wrong here. From the hefty cleaver menu to the cozy dining rooms, this place is charming. Their salad bar is a must, with great things like caviar, jelly beans and tons of great salad fixings, it's a meal itself. Their... More

Hands down, the best restaurant in Fort Wayne. Reasonable priced for a five star restaurant. This is one of three great restaurants in Fort Wayne. The other two are Chapells and the Oyster Bar.

This in my opinion is the best steak house in Fort Wayne. The salad bar alone is to die for. The service is the best. And the food is always top notch.

Food was good. Atmosphere acceptable, but they pack customers in so tight it's almost impossible to have a conversation. If you need to get up out of your chair for anything, you will be apologizing for bumping in to other customers.

When we walked in, I got the "look." Made me feel like I was under dressed in jeans and a nice shirt although others were wearing the same thing.... Food was ok. Excellent wait service, hostess was a little snobby.

I have yet to have a bad meal or experience at the Cork. The employee morale is always high and the service has always been flawless. The salad bar is worth the visit in itself and is unsurpassed in this town. I usually order one of the specials which never disappoint, however I have had wonderful steaks here as well.... More

Entire menu is delicious ... But the salad bar is spectacular! Cold plate with everything you could want. Top it off with jelly bellies and caviar ... I know how wrong it sounds but it just so right! Do not forget to grab the noodle salad!
