We wanted to dine at the Cork & Cleaver for our Valentines meal. We waited to late in the game to make an R.S.V.P. so instead of going somewhere else we decided to wait one extra evening. The meal was definitely worth the wait! Both of our meals were delicious. I had the filet mignon with asparagus at $27.95 and... More

Early dinner menu at the Cork is fabulous. A booth in the back with view of fireplace created such a nice ambience. A very tasty shrimp appetizer and bread and butter to our table prior to our entrees, make us anticipate a quick return. Then, add the phenomenal salad bar, and a perfect date night is what we had. Both... More

I've been multiple times to the Cork 'n Cleaver in Fort Wayne, IN, and this place is terrible by comparison! The salad bar everyone spoke highly of on here, is tiny and very limited on options. The menu is small, and unimpressive. The bread wasn't typical dinner bread, but more like sliced bread that would be used for sandwiches. The... More

I went for diner on a Saturday evening. Place was full, and without our reservations, we would not have been able to get a table. I ordered a filet mignon, which was tender and prepared well. The salad buffet is also great, lot's of choices, and all tasty. Even the fresh bread we got was good, crispy. Service was friendly.

Their salad bar is one of the best and their entrees are excellent and well priced. We continue to patronize them as long as we live. Good job Steve.

My wife and I went here on a Saturday night. We got reservations for 5:15 but the restaurant did not get full until we were leaving. We did not know about the Early Bird Special, but were pleasantly surprised. The food is the same but the entrée is a smaller portion. With the salad bar, it was all the food... More

I dropped in with my granddaughter for a quick lunch. It was after 1:00 pm so I knew the lunch crowd would be clearing out. We both had the salad bar which includes everything from baby corn to marinated herring and anchovies. They really do have the most extensive salad bar selections around. Always good and served with warm bread.... More

Although I love this place for quiet romantic dinners, I went recently for lunch with my friend. Lunch is a very good deal. Excellent salad bar ( the best in Evansville IMHO ) and lighter faire lunch menu which is reasonably priced. Noisier than in the evening, but it seemed mainly business individuals on lunch break or groups of ladies... More

My wife and I went for the Early Bird Special. The salad bar is wonderful. I had the Prime Rib and it was good and the baked potato was cooked all the way through.

This is one of the best places to get a nice lunch in Evansville. The salad bar is the best there is and the selection is wonderful. All the items on the lunch menu are great but the beer and cheddar is absolutely amazing. We visit frequently for lunch and I don't think that will change for a long time.... More
