Cork never dissapoints!!! I take out-of-town co-workers for dinner frequently and they love the food and service. Ruth and her staff make you feel welcome and make your overall dining experience a pleasant one!! The food is exceptional and so is the service.

Saw great reviews and thought we would check it out. We ate upstairs and it was a wine tasting night so the place was packed with women and the acoustics are not good so it was hard to hear anything. It took a while for our server to get to us and our drink order took longer then it should... More

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...
