My wife and I were looking for a gastropub off I65 N while traveling back to NE MS from Florida. We were looking for something with vegetarian options and found Cork and Cleaver on line and were very thankful we did. We were greeted promptly...and sat at the bar where we were once again pleasantly greeted by our bartender and server Hunter. He expertly answered our questions and gave us very personable service while keeping up with the floor drink orders. My wife and I both enjoyed a glass of wine from their adequate menu and our food was most impressive. She enjoyed a collection of sides-risotto with mushrooms, grilled green beans, roasted Brussel sprouts, and sweet potato fries- all of which were excellent. I had the kale and avocado salad with pacific salmon which was amazing. The lemon vinaigrette dressing was very good and the salmon was outstanding and perfectly cooked. Or experience far exceeded our expectations. We look forward to stopping our next time through.More

The waiter are rude and sassy. They never come by and check on you. And on top of all that your food will take forever and isn’t even that good. Definitely not worth the price tag

First time here. Quick service. We were a party of 5. I had the pan seared salmon. Cooked perfect. Courtney was great.

I was expecting something a little more upscale. The prices were a little high for the food received.

Stopped by on a Friday night after work. Ate outside. Started with the fish tacos and fried oysters...very good. Note, the menu has changed; the oysters are no longer offered but this was just a special night for them. Appetizers are half price before 6pm....The chicken breast was good and the salmon was very good.More

A colleague and I recently visited The Cork & Cleaver on a Sunday evening, after flying in for Monday morning meetings. Although tucked into a suburban strip mall, that is quickly forgotten when you enter. The restaurant is relatively small, quaint, and clean with very...attentive service. You can't go wrong with a burger and beer, or any of their other menu selections paired with a nice glass of wine. Good for families with older children, couples, or small groups.More

Love this place! Great food and good drinks, I went here almost every week for six weeks and was only let down once. Not for the quality of food but it took them almost one hour to get our lunch out to us, we asked...to get it to go and then it took almost another 15 minutes to box it up. The rest of the times I went here, the food was amazing and service very good. Brunch with bottomless mimosas is a perfect way to start off a Sunday or really any other day. Fish tacos are perfect!!More

There were 10 of us for brunch and the service was fast and pretty good, with things forgotten here and there. The food was excellent and everybody enjoyed their various choices from the varied menu. My Eggs Benedict was great. The hash potatoes were pretty...bland and could have done with something more to them. Apart from that it was a great experience and I’d recommend it for brunch.More

Six family members went to dinner there last night...and for the most part was very acceptable. Royal Red shrimp was the special for evening, daughter and I ordered19.00 for four shrimp that by the time the heads and other inedible parts extracted, there was only...one small bite per shrimp-- certainly not enough for price. We did both order the beet (10.00) salad and was excellent, however, the shrimp was disappointing. No complaints about service or rest of food..just thought the evening special should have been superior.More

Took my wife and two grandchildren (16 and 17) to try the much praised burgers. I got cowboy burger with Brussel sprouts, wife had cork burger with sweet potato fries, one granddaughter had burger with mac and cheese, and other grand had shrimp and grits....We all loved the burgers. Cooked perfectly and great size. The brussel sprouts were awful. The mac and cheese were "dry, bland and tasteless". Shrimp and grits were "too spicy". Service was very good and timely. Restaurant was loud and almost painful. We were satisfied and disappointed. Probably will not return.More
