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

The restaurant is a converted neighborhood tap room so it is a little disconcerting when you first walk in. The dining room & porch upstairs are very nice. The food & service were excellent & a good value. I would definitely go back if I were in the Wilkes Barre area.

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
