Only a couple of these left. This was once a chain owned by chart house, that two or three that are left are singularly owned. It remains a local favorite. It is a steakhouse that takes you back. They have infused some modern cuisine but the old standards rule. Still boasts a one-of-a-kind salad bar. There are long-standing employees that... More

Never disappointed here. Salad bar is outstanding! Steaks done to perfection. Great place to meet with friend. Can be expensive but worth the money. Always good food here. Leave room as the salad bar could be a meal all in itself!

The Cork and Cleaver is one of Fort Wayne's best restaurants. It's steak are top notch and the salad bar is extraordinary diverse. The black caviar is great. My wife and I went there on 1-2-2017. We both had the 8 oz. filet mignon with an inexpensive bottle of wine. It ran over 100.00. You get what you pay for.

Good service, good bar and great salad bar! The other food is good, too, but seriously, I mostly go for the salad bar!

Stuffed mushrooms & shrimp appetizers great as always. Salad bar best in the land. Coffee crusted ribeye steak was divine! Service and atmosphere impeccable.

Visiting friends in Ft. Wayne for their anniversary, and they wanted to come here. Salad bar is awesome. Unusual items you don't often see like black caviar, creamed herring, anchovies, artichoke salad, and almost anything you would want to put on a green salad including even a variety of lettuces on which to build. The salmon was probably the best... More

We recently celebrated a friend's birthday there. It's by far one of the best places in Fort Wayne. The salad bar IS the best around. Everything there is amazing. The service is excellent. You just can't go wrong - except assuming that they will have a table for you. Reservations are a must on the weekends! Enjoy!
