We went to the Cork and Cleaver for my mother's birthday. The first thing that was a little off was that they hand you a large cleaver with the menu on it...just one...for the whole table...and it was very heavy. A little odd to have to wait for everyone to decide what they want for dinner before passing it to the next person.
My dad got the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer, and it was served very odd as well. It was served with about 15 very small shrimp on a plate and cocktail sauce. Not served very pretty in a glass with large cocktail shrimp. We also got the cheese stuffed mushrooms that were so bland that we didn't even eat them all. I order stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer at every restaurant that offers them and these were by far the worst I have ever had. Very disappointing.
My mother got the crab cakes for dinner and she did like them. My sister got the blackened shrimp and she liked them as well. My dad got a bowl of clam chowder and all of us got the salad bar.
Let me just say their salad bar was the very best part of the whole dinner. Very fresh, nicely set up. I was disappointed that there was no chicken or ham to add to your salad though. The bleu cheese dressing was one one of the best ever.
My mama had Mississippi mud pie as her birthday desert. It was outstanding! And free :)
If I were to go to the Cork and Cleaver again I would order the soup and salad bar for dinner and that's about it.
