Best meatball I ever ate. And I didn't even order a meatball. I literally just commented that the meatballs were supposed to be great and that I wished I got them, and then the owner came over with one to try. Unbelievable! Blackberry sangria also excellent.

We were suggested this restaurant by the staff at the Woodlands Inn. The outside is unassuming, but one step inside tells a whole other story. I knew right away we were in for a treat. The menu is definitely high end, and a little eclectic. Great for foodies, and daredevils alike. We started with a glass of house cab and... More

We've been going to Cork for years and always have a great experience. The staff is super friendly and I love the atmosphere. The Spinach & Artichoke dip is my favorite. I'll definitely be going back there on Thursday for their lobster special and a Dirty martini. Also, being that the patio is pet friendly, I'll be bringing my dog,... More

I have been coming to Cork's for many years and I have never had any dish I didn't thoroughly enjoy! I was there last night for a SPCA fundraiser and had the balsamic chicken. It was delicious! Friends of mine had the cognac chicken and pappardelle and were very pleased with it. I have heard rave reviews about Nana's meatballs... More

The stuffed salmon was the best salmon dish I ever had. Crab spring roll and clam appetizer also excellent. My husband loved his watermelon salad and red snapper as well. Nice wine list and friendly service. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's very nice inside.

Had dinner with my wife on the patio. Started the night with the pitcher on the patio special. Peach Sangria on $15 We order a couple of appetizers to share the Fig & Prosciutto flatbread which was crisp and a wonderful blend of flavors. The Ahi tuna tostadas were over the top, perfectly seared tuna and the Sriracha aioli was... More

After reading rave reviews about Cork, we decided to go last Friday night. It was not particularly busy when we arrived at 6:00 p.m. We ordered fried calamari to share; two house salads and Clams Bianco and Thai Steamed Clams with Rice Noodles. The calamari was undercooked and the lemon aioli was tasteless. The salads were wilted - also a... More
