Great Mardi Gras Dinner

We visited for the special Mardi Gras Menu. The food was fantastic and the service was great. The quality of the food is incredible. The parking is very tight, and the location has a very old school feel. The menu items are a little pricey for the location but the food quality and service... read more

I took my girlfriend to Cork last night for Valentine's Day. She was blown away by the menu selection and the atmosphere. It was a nice dinner with great food. Originally I was going to pass on dessert but my girlfriend insisted that we try the Molten Lava Cake with ice cream on top. I'm glad we went with that,... More

I've been to this restaurant several times and every time I've been there I've had a delicious meal. I love the casual bar area, but the dining area is perfect for a romantic date or more formal dinner. The staff is great!

The service, food and drinks are AMAZING! I love their martini's. I've been here several times and I can't express how wonderful its been every single time. I love their burgers and their waitresses and bartender are super sweet and helpful. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting NEPA.

Overall, this is the best restaurant/bar. The food is amazing and the service and staff sre wonderful, especially the bartender Caroline. She goes out of her way to be helpful with any questions you may have about the menu or drinks. Also, she knows how to make a good drink which is extremely important. She's always there to refill your... More

Had an appetizer special, fig and Brie grilled cheese that was a wonderful combination. We loved it. Shrimp and Crab Pasta dinner was one if the best meals I ever... More

Wonderful experience at Cork. Went with friends for my husband's birthday. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Felt welcomed from the moment we stepped in. We had a cozy corner table on the second floor. Meals ordered were the stuffed pork chop, chicken Parmesan, stuffed salmon and chicken saltimbocca- we would highly recommend any of these dishes....

Had the Spinach and artichoke dip as an appetizer. It was phenomenal! Both of us had an entree that we loved. I had the Mediterranean Chicken, which was fantastic. My friend had the Shrimp & Crab Bolognaise with Homemade Pappardelle. Everything was served hot and delicious. We also had a great server who was bubbly and friendly. She helped us... More
