This is by far the best steakhouse in Fort Wayne. My husband and I have visited a couple times in the last few months and have been lucky enough to get one of the cozy booths tucked away in the back of the restaurant. The salad bar is the best in town and is a great option for lunch. Definitely... More

Lunchtime is a great time for a business lunch. Salad bar is one of the best in town, or if you want to order off the menu, they'll take care of you either way.

We sat on the patio, which was really lovely. Our server was very friendly and helpful. I felt like the dinner menu was very pricey and just ended up ordering the soup and salad bar since I had heard so much about it. I loved the various choices of lettuce and the wide variety of veggies and toppings. The lobster... More

I am from out of town so I always look for local establishments close to the hotel I am staying at. This place was awesome. On a Wednesday night it was standing room only and an hour wait for dinner. I ventured to the bar and found the most wonderful ladies behind it. They were polite not afraid to suggest... More

Ate there with family celebrating and it was great. We were seated immediately even though we were a bit early. Service was great and meal was delicious.

Food is good... not great. They have a salad bar at a steak-house. I get a salad bar at Ponderosa, but not a nice steakhouse. Fruit in fruit salad is from a can. Again, good but not great. The decor is neurotic. Not sure what the theme is. Staff is friendly. Salad bar is good.

Great place to get together for a business lunch. Usually can find a "quieter" spot in the restaurant. Menu items are reasonably priced and are prepared to be tasty. Not as easy to enjoy the delicious salad bar when trying to conduct business.

This place is first class food and drink! The salad bar is so fresh and plentiful! Cold plates are a plus. You can make a meal of it. Add a bowl or cup of broccoli soup as it is awesome. Meals are fantastic from the steak to tuna and end with the ice cream desert that is enough to share... More

We ate dinner at Cork & Cleaver last night and were again so impressed with the service! The wait staff was attentive but not annoying. We started with cocktails: I had their dark chocolate martini (which is served with an oreo cookie crumb rim) and my husband had the frozen Hawaiian margarita. Both drinks were wonderful! Cork & Cleaver is... More

I've been here a couple of times and the food is always really good. The most unusual thing on the menu is their coffee crusted steak. It may sound odd, but it tastes fantastic. If you visit, make sure you try it!
