I've been to The Cork numerous times over the course of numerous years. The food quality, the service, and the atmosphere hasn't changed much from my time as a teen to an adult, but in my opinion - I love it. Great steaks, great salad bar ... I mean great like almost as awesome as a great Vegas buffet salad.... More

I've been to this restaurant a number of times and have always had superior service and good food. But it's their salad bar that has been a big draw for us in addition to the standard salad bar fare they have added a number of items to make this one stand out, including caviar. So all in all, from the... More

Their food is delicious, the service is impeccable, and I love the atmosphere. My favorite meal is the rib eye, it's extremely tender and has lots of flavor. One rib eye could easily feed two people. You also have to try the salad bar. It has everything on it. Everything on the bar is fresh.

From the appetizers to dessert you won't be disappointed. The grilled calamari, shrimp cocktail and cheesy mushrooms are my favorite appetizers. The salad bar is top notch. I usually go for a filet but love all the main dishes. I am usually to full for dessert but if it's a special occasion make room for it!

This was my first visit to the Cork 'n Cleaver, and I did enjoy it. The atmosphere is nice, the food is good, and the service is excellent! They have some great mixed drinks, and the desserts looked tasty. The salad bar was good, but I was surprised at how small it was after reading that it was "award winning".... More

The teriyaki chicken was great. As was the salad bar. The pewter plates are nice and chilled. The spaghetti salad very good. We like the variety of things to add to our salad. The mud pie can't be beat.

I so expected more.... I'm a Trip Advisor freak, trusting and finding almost all our places to eat. Cork & Cleaver is #1 in Fort Wayne and it was just okay for us. It was packed at lunch... Couldn't even find a parking place for ever! Finally get in and didn't realize we needed reservations... Didn't have to wait long... More
