A Must Dine!

The salad bar has many choices and the steaks are very good. If you are ever in Fort Wayne make sure to put this place as a dinner stop at least one night.

Cork 'n Cleaver is one of our favorite spots. Service is among the best in the city. Wait staff has been very well trained and professional. Salad bar is the absolute best in the city. You will not be disappointed.

It's been here forever but is still going strong due to the food, atmosphere and service...all the things you expect in a a great restaurant. The black and blue salmon is still the best I've had anywhere and I've had it just about everywhere. The top notch salad bar is the gold standard for salad bars. The intimate ambiance is... More

You never can go wrong dining at Cork 'n Cleaver. I never have had a bad experience. I recently had the wild salmon with champagne sauce. It is the best salmon I have ever tasted! If you want to go on a weekend you need to book a reservation several weeks ahead.

I was disappointed in this restaurant. The servers are rude and the manager wouldn't let me taste a wine before purchasing a glass. WHO DOES THAT? I've never heard of a restaurant not giving a small taste to see if a patron likes the varietal. I asked the bartender and then asked for a manager. They both gave me the... More

We chose the sandwich special and the salad bar. Price was right and everything was delicious. Our sever was very nice and... More

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 best menu option to me is... More
