Great food in Wilkes-Barre!

The outside seating in the summer months is wonderful. Food is terrific and prices reasonable with special feature dish discounted. The sangria is a must!

My friend and I came to this area to have a girls weekend. We were looking for a nice restaurant and this place was highly rated. When we first drove up, we weren't quite sure of this was the place. It's located in a neighborhood. Once we were in, it was very busy. We had made a reservation prior to... More

I have been at Cork numerous times. The food choices are changed frequently, always delicious! Interesting special offers! Special events. There is much attention to detail in atmosphere, service and menu. The owner supports community programs such as the Wyo Vly Children's Assn.

My family and friends went to a great fundraiser at Cork's last evening! We all enjoyed our meals, from the Watermelon Salad to Mushroom ravioli to cheeseburger, we ate it all. Themed drinks, such as the Fabulous Cosmopolitan, and wine by the glass were refreshing. Large crowd that was handled easily by the experienced wait staff and bartenders. Cork's is... More

I take any opportunity to go to Cork! The food is always wonderful and the owner Ruth ALWAYS has unique and delicious specials! I like the fact that the restaurant accomodates your moods as a diner. If you want to sit at a bar for fun, you can. If you want a more intimate dining experience, the upstairs dining room... More

I have been there 3 times in the last month. Each time I found the service and the food spectacular! Thursday night is seafood night with 8 oz. lobster tail for $25.

Really really good. The gorgonzola tenderloin midrare (asked for on the rare side) COOKED to ORDER- absolutely amazing. Lobster tail- mmmmmm! Calamari- fresh and hand battered. Really, I like a nice hand carved tenderloin- well done chef. Service was kind- down to earth. Good work, would love to come back.

I'm a native to the area & Cork is always our go-to spot. Dinner is always a delight & the specials are always new & exciting, but they keep the bestsellers & favorites on the menu at all times. The drinks are great - the martini's are the best around. During the summer you can sit out on the patio... More

Went on a Tuesday night with my husband. We shared the antipasto bruschetta, 2 pieces, $11 but it was just delicious!! Dinner salads were completely average but the dressings were tasty. It was 92 degrees outside and I wanted a frozen drink but all they had was a blackberry margarita 😞. My husband & I both had chicken dishes that... More

We picked Cork because of it's Patio and reviews we read on this site. It was our 23rd Wedding Anniversary and we are very happy we chose it. The Patio was beautiful and the food and service was excellent! My husband had the 16 oz Steak and I had the Chicken Rollentini, which I highly recommend! It came with mashed... More
