I'm an executive sales rep. for an aftermarket vehicle up fitting company and it was by far the most welcoming restaurant I have been to with the style/level of dining I was looking for. VERY PLEASED!

Celebrated an early Valentine dinner here over the weekend. Everything was wonderful. The lamb was superb with a delicious berry sauce. Mustard salmon was also delicious. Nice cocktail menu with a great berry mule in a copper cup. We've dined here a few times and it's always superb.

Dinner at the Cork Bar and Restaurant was a wonderful experience and pleasant surprise! The portions are absolutely huge so consider sharing. Both dinners came with a salad. You can choose to upgrade to BLT salad if you prefer. Both the dinner salad and the BLT salad were a nice size portion. For dinner, we had the Egglplant Rollatini and... More

Cork is a small, but cozy, bar and restaurant located about a mile or two from Public Square in Wilkes-Barre. It's located in a mostly residential part of the city, so I probably wouldn't have located it on my own (a friend told me). My wife and I have been there a few times and were never disappointed. In addition... More

Really enjoyed this great restaurant in Wilkes-barre with wonderful atmosphere, service and food. We enjoyed several great apps, our favorites include the meatballs and the tuna tostadas. For dinner we ordered the short rib, lobster special and salmon, which were all were amazing.

Cork is nestled minutes away from Mohegan Arena in a quiet Wilkes Barre neighborhood. From the outside appearance, I thought I would be very disappointed. Was I surprised! The upstairs dining area was comfortable and quaint. The service was outstanding, and the food was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant!
