I've eaten at Cork several times and love their food, atmosphere and friendly staff. The Ahi Tuna and Salmon are both amazing! When I needed a location for a party of over 100, I reached out to the owner who was very accommodating. Ruth had great ideas for both food and drink. She also was able to accommodate vegetarian needs.... More

Excellent food and service. Great menu with a variety of choices. The eggplant parm was delicious and I highly recommend it. The ambience in this restaurant is nice. The downstairs area has the bar and the upstairs is very quaint. A great place for a special occasion.

Had a party of 7. Excellent service and liked our room and the room temp. But the food was really just average. I had seafood crepes at $24 which were very small and not really stuffed at all well. Could barely taste any crab. Only tough shrimp and the lobster sauce had no lobster meat. It was simply a sauce... More

I was looking for a place to have my daughters graduation party for appoximately 20 people that would be an intimate setting, good food, not a chain restaurant, and within driving distance of Wilkes University. I often heard of Cork's restaurant and how good the food was in WB and decided to contact them. Ruth the owner responded to my... More

Love this place, the Italian items are fantastic. Love the drinks, apps, burgers, and seafood. The service is also top notch, very attentive. Plus every two weeks they have a wine class with food pairings on a different theme. Lots of fun. Highly recommend! Oh, and in the summer they have a patio that is dog friendly. My wife always...

Excellent dining experience from the wine selection to the crab cakes and stuffed pork! The food was simply delicious! Looking forward to our next visit. Made a reservation for the whole family for Mother's Day.

We stopped in before a show at the Kirby this past week. It was our first time visiting Cork and have to say we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, only wish we had more time to enjoy another fabulous martini. My wife had the Shrimp and Crab Bolognese and I had the Stuffed Pork Chop, just one of the many gluten... More

First time at Corks Bar and Restaurant and I was really excited after seeing the reviews here on TA, but couldn't have been more disappointed. We had 2 appetizers (calamari and edamane dumplings) both were just okay. Our party ordered 4 entree's (stuffed chicken, stuffed pork chop, seafood fra diablo and shrimp over papardelle, all were poorly done. The pork... More
