Outstanding food and service. The atmosphere was lovely and the drinks were a good pour. Our server, Shelby, was exceptional being attentive but not hovering. She always had a smile on her face.

It was a pretty good burger I had. Can't remember what it was called but it was a lunch time special & it had bacon & blue cheese. The salad bar was really good as well with lots of options. The interior of the restaurant is pretty neat as well.

If you are looking for a solid place to have a steak and/or seafood you can't go wrong here. One of the best salad bars ever. Service is always good. Call for reservations especially on the weekend. Bar makes excellent drinks. They also have tables in the bar. One of the better restaurants in Ft Wayne.

This Place was highly recommended by our desk clerk at the hotel. The salad bar was so fresh and awesome. The steaks came with a choice of side and the salad bar. I had my arm in a cast and our server got the chef to cut my steak for me. She provided us with Exceptional service. Well done Suni

Came here for dinner on a Monday night and although we didn't need reservations because we were early, they are probably a good idea because the restaurant was pretty full by 6 pm. Warm greeting and professional service. Our server was Suni and she was excellent and provided a great dining experience! Suni was attentive and pays attention to detail,... More

We always go to the Cork and Cleaver for special occasions! We went this month for my mom's birthday! Everyone in our group loved their food. Some had seafood, lobster, and steak! And, for birthdays, they gave the birthday girl a free Mud Pie! Wow, what a yummy dessert! Service is always top notch too!

We were a party of four celebrating a birthday over lunch. I had the black and blue salmon, rice and sautéed mushrooms. All were great. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. Our food arrived in reasonable time. The Cork always delivers!

I had my first date with my husband at the Cork in Bloomington 40 years ago. The salad bar is tremendous and I had the crab cake appetizer as well as my entree. Will always love this place
