The Cork 'n Cleaver Restaurant, located in Fort Wayne, In. Is perhaps the ideal gathering place for large family get togethers, especially over the holidays. The atmosphere is suited for sizeable guest and with the place crowed they have a knack for spacing the crowds so as to keep the volume down and the festivities flowing. The menu is well... More

Went as a group and yes reservations are highly recommended. Our table was ready to go as soon as we arrived. We were seated by the fire which was really nice as it was snowing outside. The lighting is low which sets a very pleasant mood for the customers. We had a great server who did an awesome job. If... More

The salad bar is great. The food is not what it used to be. Went as party, one meal was not right. No offer was made to replace or fix. Expect to pay $30-40 per person no alcohol.

I have been going here forever. Fabulous salad bar, great wine list and plentiful portions. Don't expect to walk in without reservations - it is always busy! Vibrant and loud atomosphere - ask for a booth in the back if you want a bit of privacy. Dinner specials are always good if you aren't there for their perfectly aged beef.... More

Was very disappointed in our holiday dinner at this location. The food was average at best during this visit - and was not good looking in its presentation either. When I told the waitress that my entree was not all that good - I got no response at all - not I'm sorry or anything. It was as if I... More

I will have to say that I never get anything else other than their prime rib and their salad bar but they are fantastic. I did have their shrimp appetizer once and it was very good. Atmosphere is nice and formal like, although the tables are fairly too close to one another. I do enjoy eating here though.

The Cork and Cleaver is a treasure on the north side of fort wayne. They have been serving great food along with excellent service for a long time. It is a unique experience. More than a steak house, the Cork offers wonderful sea food, some tasty pork chops, and interesting chicken. Your menu comes on a meat cleaver, which is... More

When my wife and I get a craving for a great salad bar we seldom go anywhere else. It is not great because of its size like some salad bar buffets. It is because every time we have stopped in for lunch it has been fresh, clean, full, the wait staff outstanding and the parking lot full. By the way... More

We love going out to eat in the great atmosphere is on the top of our list as a must have! And the corking cleaver never disappoints. It also has one of the best salad bars I've ever seen. One of my favorite things to do is to order the salad bar and get their great coffee or a heated... More
