“Great Good”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

We just went to Cork 'n Cleaver tonight. The service was more than expected and the prime rib was the best I've had...Melt in your mouth! I would definately recommend. Don't expect a 15-20 meal but the quality and service warrant more anyway. Go Here.. if you want a nice relaxed dinning atmosphere.

“Top notch food”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Right off of I-69 interchange # 312 - A you will find one of the few remaining Cork & Cleaver restaurants left in the country. Their salad bar alone is worth your visit with everything from the freashest of veggies to the biggest of strawberries to Caviar, it can be a meal by itself. If you are in the mood for a bigger meal, the fish, steaks,etc. are done to perfection and if that isn't enough to fill you up, the mud pie dessert will finish you off. If you are celebrating a special occasion, let them know and they will make it even more special.
The prices are not cheap, they are not McDonalds. But neither are they over board on the high end and the servers have always been top notch. If you are looking for a high quality meal in Fort Wayne, this is the spot.

“cramped”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

they could take a few tables out. i do NOT like having to squeeze between tables to get to myown, whether it be a booth (that are too tight, and NO i'm not bigger person). it's just too cramped. for a NICE evening out... a person doesnt want to be shoulder to shoulder with other diners. AND i HATE that ONE darned menu cleaver is supposed to go for 4 people. GOOD LORD! by the time the others see it.. i've forgotten what i wanted. i think thats just tacky.

“very disappointed!!!!!!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

We went to Cork & Cleaver for the 1st and probably last time! Food was just ok, had a reservation for 4 but at the last minute 2 people couldn't come, found out when we got our bill that they still charge for 4 people so needless to say the bill was alot larger than anticipated and waitress said nothing! Then we leave and go out to our car and found out someone slammed into the drivers side and front fender and left the scene so my advice to you, make sure your reservations are going to show and watch where you park. Menu was on a heavy cleaver couldn't see to read it because the lighting was bad plus it was heavy just a bad experience all around!

Reviewed November 27, 2012

Five of us had dinner here. Very good salad bar. The steaks were coked to perfection. Great server, very friendly and efficient. The prices were average for an upscale steakhouse like this.
