There's nothing to not like about this wonderful restaurant that was recommended to us by our American Coach mechanic working on our 41' Motor Coach in Decatur, IN. We walked 5 min from the BEST locally owned Fort Wayne Hotel we stayed at tonight (never heard of it? Check it out, visit, stay!) This locally (again MADE IN AMERICA) restaurant... More

Great place for a good steak and a salad bar with tremendous variety. Make sure you reserve your seats at an earlier time. "The Cork" will not dissapoint.

We have been going there for over 35 years and cannot honestly say we have ever had a bad meall. Service is always excellant and very friendly. They have update quite a bit in the last couple of years so the atmosphere is is also pleasant and enjoyable. From the busboys to the Chefs and the bartenders no complaints from... More

We live in Fort Wayne and this is by far one of our favorites. The wait staff has worked there for years and years, which says a lot. The menu has been a staple for years because what they have is a great thing! If you want excellent service and great steak and seafood, this is the place to go... More

If you like your broiled fish served with ice in the middle and the scales on, this is your kind of place. - and it's pricey, too!

ok, quit knocking this restaurant, it is very good, we eat here every time we come to Ft Wayne. Don't think of the salad bar like a buffet, because its FAR from that WE LOVE IT. Husband had Prawns that were delicious, I have just the salad bar, because by the time I eat it, I have no room for... More

In Fort Wayne, the masses act like this is a Big Deal kind of place. It is a pleasant setting, and the food and service are good, but it is nothing special unless you have never left Allen County, Indiana. Yes--they have a salad bar, but you wait in a line behind people who think gobs of bleu cheese and... More

I went to Cork 'n' Cleaver with a business associate who had been there on several occasions. I was a little leery after having read some of the negative reviews. I don't get it - what's not to like about this place? It's a little dated and dark inside? Well, yes. But who cares? I thought that the food was... More

We went there after losing our last game in State Wars. We celebrated the great time we had in Fort Wayne and definitely chose the right restaurant. We loved the salad bar and our food was great.

We've gone to Cork 'n Cleaver for many, many years and I'm sad to say it's gone from being a real treat to just average. The restaurant itself is still lovely and the Southwest design helps you feel like you're on a mini vacation out of Fort Wayne. Wait staff no longer makes you feel valued, more pushy now. Food...
