This is an old local place. It's been around for a very long time. It never seems to disappoint. The food is well prepared from the salads to the steaks. Their mud pie is a staple. It is definitely something you need to share! The staff is always pleasant and very accommodating. Reservations are almost required for the weekends. It... More

Cork n Cleaver is the spot to go for a fantastic salad bar. The Salad Bar isn't that huge, yet it has everything one needs to satisfy. We have held our Christmas party there for three years and the experience was very enjoyable. The only downside was that before people were finished eating, the server, our bills in hand, asked...

This restaurant is fantastic. Try the brocolli and cheese soup - really fattening, but worth every single character. Extensive salad bar.

Great steaks, seafood and an amazing salad bar that has everything imaginable from unique spaghetti pasta salad, to Jelly Belly candies. Service is always efficient and friendly.

Always a good meal. Have visited for business and pleasure - good atmosphere, professional staff. Stay out of the bar - noisy business travelers.

This landmark of deliciousness is always a pleasure to dine at. I take family, fortunate friends, and peoples in town for business here a couple times a year. It is always wonderful. They have great food, that simple. They offer specials and have wines and what not, but for me its about two things. Give me that amazing salad bar... More

Had lunch with family. Service was good but not excellent as it took a long time for server to take order and then again to receive check. Salad bar was good but not really anything spectacular on it. Should have some more fruit on it. I was looking forward to this lunch and was disappointed slightly.

I was disappointed after the reviews here raised my expectations. I travel a lot and was expecting a place with good value for the higher priced range, but the atmosphere here was depressing, like that of an old living room. I found the menu to be about average for more expensive restaurants with high fat fare. The staff was nice... More
