Excellent everything!!

We went for our anniversary and wanted the previous excellent reviews to be our experience also...and it was! The service was intuitive and well educated, the salad bar was well-kept and quite fresh. And the meal WAS INCREDIBLE. Looking forward to going again.

My wife and I have visited quite a few times but food never this bad. We were to have the special 16oz bone in ribeye and share it, but instead were told that they were just going to give us each an 8oz of our own. Problem was steaks were bad and my wife's baked potato burnt. Then the price... More

We went there because we were staying across the street. We were seated at the bar right away and served drinks promptly even though the bar staff were very, very busy. Wine pour was very generous, beer selection was disappointing. Salad bar was a nice change (haven't been to one in years) though I was disappointed in the dressing selections... More

Great food, a little bit dark inside but the food is very good and I'm not sure you can find a better salad bar anywhere.

The food, service, and ambiance is always great! The salad bar is a favorite and the wine pours are generous. We loved the Cork 'n Cleaver in our home town back in the late 70's and early 80's and this is a step back in time for us. This place is always busy so its a good idea to make... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere and we have yet to be disappointed. Our favorite dish is the seared ahi although it's a much better value at lunch than dinner. The salad bar is incredible!! It's always fresh and always consistent in terms of offerings and taste. The staff is attentive without being intrusive.

Love "The Cork". We dine out frequently, and we love going to the Cork and Cleaver. It has a great atmosphere, and the food is always wonderful. Great wine list as well. We would highly recommend the Cork and Cleaver for people in town as well as out of town guests.

We haven't been to dinner by ourselves in a while and we came out to Cork N Clever. Our StateFarm Man gave us a gift card to go. We were able to get in right away. The waitress Brady was very kind and on top of things. My husband got the Prime Rib and myself the Ribeye. The salad bar... More
