Best of the best in an area filled with great food. Lump crab cakes are not to be missed. The Cork salad with apples and nuts with house dressing is the best salad I ever had. My friend enjoyed her filet and 2 different martinis from a very extensive list. New favorite in the area.

Great restaurant. Yes, the location is odd but I figured they must be good to make it there. We sat upstairs which offers a quiet option to the Irish pub seen downstairs. Ask for this if you are eating with kids. Service was quick but not rushed. Children's menu is rather limited, but the full menu is great. Grilled chicken... More

Negative: Greeted with the smell of stale beer when we walked through the front door. Positive: Greeted by a friendly hostess. Positive: Both the red and white wine potions were generous. Negative: The house salad was made with BROWN iceberg lettuce. Negative: Spicy GrilledChicken with Harvest Risotto Chicken was not cooked. We were told that the chef temped it. He... More

Had our company Christmas party here( Thanks Bill and Ruth Corcoran!) food was amazing and atmosphere was awesome. Definitely check this place out!!! Can't say enough about Cork. Going back again and again! If you like salmon ask for Bill's salmon special dinner. It's not on the menu.

I moved back to the area from Manhattan a year ago and Cork has become one of my go-to spots! There's a spacious bar if you're looking to grab cocktails, a cozy upstairs dining room if you're looking for something more intimate and great outdoor seating if you're looking to take advantage of warm, summer nights. The staff is friendly... More

We met friends here for dinner from North Jersey and we travelled from the Quakertown area for a concert at the Moheghan Sun Arena. We were so surprised and so happy with our dinner at Cork. Our waitress was fantastic; she asked us if were going to a concert and what time it was so that she could keep us... More

We had an amazing dinner here with friends over the weekend. The customer service was 5 stars! We had made a reservation and when we arrived they were a little overbooked. We were not in a hurry and enjoyed visiting with our friends in the bar area while we waited. Once we were seated the hostess informed us that they... More

Went to Cork with a customer and his wife. Service was great and the food even better. I had the crab cakes and they were very good. My wife had the seafood manicotti which see loves. Customer and wife were very happy with Cork. We will return.

I've traveled several times on business to Wilkes Barre and have enjoyed excellent dinners and service at the Cork Bar and Restaurant. Don't be put off by quirky directions to get there and the exterior of the place. When the weather was nicer, I sat outside on the charming patio where Luanne provided excellent congenial "multi-tasking" service; and recently at... More
