Whenever I think of Cork, one of my favorite restaurants (for a sit-down dinner or just a happy hour at the bar), I think of somewhere I can always go and expect something different. That's not in a bad way. See, there's always a new special being whipped up in the kitchen, a new martini being mixed or a new... More

The managment was kind enough to offer a 4 entree coupon for the disappointing dinner the last time we ate here, it was very appreciated. So I took 3 couples and happily dinner was much better. I had the paperdelle with shrimp and crab, husband had risotto and seafood all were very good, our friends enjoyed their meals also. Portions... More

It was busy, but inexperienced waitress. Incorrect food came out no appology. Food took almost a hour to be served. Waited 1/3 hour for bill.

I admit, when I arrived after making reservations based on the excellent reviews on TA, I thought maybe I had the wrong place. It looks like a ordinary corner bar in a working class city neighborhood and when you walk in there isn't much to dispell that notion. The greeters were friendly and quickly ushered us upstairs to our reserved... More

I visited this seemingly low-key neighborhood bar and restaurant and was delighted by all the choices - in wine, drinks and food. On this occasion, my time was limited since I was about to attend a performance at the community theater nearby. My friend and I went in for a quick bite or snack. We each had a cup of... More

This is my absolute favorite restaurant. I normally am the type of person that gets the same thing at the same place all the time. I've never had the same thing twice here (except for appetizers) and it is always amazing!! Best spinach and artichoke dip I have ever had. Very reasonable price for excellent food!

Best place to eat in all of Wilkes Barre, might be my favorite restaurant of all time!! My boyfriend and I both went to school in Wilkes Barre, however we never heard of the restaurant until after we graduated! We occasionally head back to Wilkes Barre a few weekends every year, and this is always a dinner reservation we make!!... More

This is one of the best meals I've had in years, everything was fresh and tasty. Wonderful blackened salmon and seafood pasta dish. Deserts were also exceptional. A stop during a long day of traveling that we were glad we made.

Ate hear when taking our son to visit several area colleges. Lovely neighborhood pub and restaurant with friendly staff. Tried several appetizers, all were great. We loved the calimari, prosciutto flatbread and the crab cake. I think the crab cake was the best I ever had, so we ordered an entree portion as we'll. The linguini with clam sauce and... More

Here for a few days and wanted to enjoy local flavor. A definite neighborhood bar & restaurant. Interesting menu, but had to wait 1/2 hour for just appetizers while those arriving later were being served full dinners. Our server was friendly and attentive, so I think this is a management problem both in and out if kitchen. Attempted to get... More
