This place is fantastic, rarely have I gone to a restaurant and enjoyed absolutely everything I ordered. The server was good as well, food came out in perfect stages, didn't feel rushed to finish. Only bad thing about it is the horrible parking, not much you can do in an old city I suppose, well worth that aggravation though.

My wife and I recently stopped at Cork for burgers and drinks. We were in the neighborhood and I remembered Cork posted something on their Facebook page about burgers. Cork is known for fine dining, great drinks, and a romantic atmosphere; but if you're out looking for a good burger, Cork should be top of your list. My burger was... More

This was one of the best meals I have had - the steak was absolutely delicious and the service was great.

The food is great, the bar is always clean and the bartenders are actually quite good. No matter what option you choose, the food is fantastic. Only gripe was the bathrooms were dirty when I had went, and didn't seem to be a priority when I alerted the staff. But even that can't take away the wonderful experience here!

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 mostly make up for it. The... More

Cork Bar and Restaurant in Wilkes-Barre is as good as it gets in NEPA and would rival the best any big city has to offer. With an extremely diverse food menu and drink list, this upscale restaurant will have your taste buds in a frenzy without breaking the bank. If you're looking for an experience you'll never forget then Cork... 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!
