We sat at a table that was near the DJ & soon after setting down were told that right after dinner these 2 tables were going to be removed to create a dancing area, which was fine, but instead of being the 1 of the 1st to be served, we were the last table served. We had no more than... More

Don't go there if you are in a rush. The food is made fresh and to order. Whether you are looking for fresh fish options, steaks, or even burgers. The Tuesday we were there was retail wine night by the bottle ( our pick was less than $11) and $5 appetizers. The flatbread pizza appetizers were $5. We had a... More

I was surprised how few customers were here because the food was delicious, the atmosphere nicer yet still approachable. The dining room was really clean. Our table service was a good pace. The food was really good. (I'm a particular fan of the brisket-- it's become my go-to entree here.) There are lots of choices on the long menu, plus... More

The staff was very friendly and efficient. We had lots of questions for our server and she was so nice and patient with us. We were happy to take advantage of their happy hour with 1/2 off glasses of wine and discounted beer prices. Everyone was pleased with their meals and especially with the portion size. Overall we had a... More

Met friends a few doors down at the Pour House (not on TA). Had cocktail recommendation of basil martini, kind of too sweet but okay. The dinner selections were nicely prepared and quite good. The lobster pasta was tasty but barely shreds of lobster. The salmon wrap

Don't drive to Cleveland because right in Lorain County is the best dining. It is Cork's in Amherst. Award winning Chef and fine cuisine. Quiet atmosphere for special couple dining in the evening. Attentive wait staff and complete wine bar plus regular cocktails await you appetite.

Food was great. We really enjoyed a more "uptown" option for eating local. The menu was always changing and I was always happy with the specials. Their menu has been combined with Stubby's. Good, but not quite the same.

My wife and I went to dine here at 5 pm yesterday. Only 2 customers in the restaurant. A young woman behind the bar asked if we had a reservation. We said no, and she then left us and went into the kitchen. When she came back, she turned us over to a server with an attitude, who told us... More

Being new to the area and having a relative visit who needed gluten free food, we were thrilled to find Cork's. We made reservations which was silly as there was only one other table of patrons. I don't understand why as the atmosphere is great and food very good. My husband and I both had the Guinness onion soup. It... More

This is my favorite place in Lorain County. Amherst is a destination place and this is one of the reasons. You can start your evening having a fine dining experience here and then hit the drinking establishments within walking distance. The food is excellent and the drink list is expansive. The wait staff has been awesome and knowledgeable every time... More
