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

This is a great restaurant but is pricy. The staff does a great job of serving the customers and the food taste great.

You have to make a reservation for dinner and you will know why. The food is the best in the city. Salad bar had caviar too. The items on the menu are the best cuts of meat, large fine desserts. The atmosphere is very romantic. I did a study on the restaurant for a university, without the employees knowing why... More

We were wined and dined here on a business trip to Fort Wayne. Not really sure what to expect, but boy were we impressed! I chose the teriyaki filet mignon paired with a baked potato. Also had the shrimp/mushroom sampler platter. Shrimp was decent sized, and had varying levels of seasoning, button mushrooms stuffed with garlic and cheeses were a... More

"The Cork" has been there at least 35 years that I know of. A restaurant cannot achieve that without offering great food and service week in and week out. We have eaten at the Cork many times and have never even come close to being disappointed in any way. The menus are printed on an actual meat cleaver - very... More

Nice, big and elegant, compared to the average level, steak house where you can also eat fish. We have been there on Monday and it was crowded, but it seems it always is, in spite of this the service has been extremly quick, nice and very professional, the lady was always suggesting without annoying people or force them with their...
