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

The Cork Bar and Restaurant is located in a converted dive bar in a residential part of town. From the outside it certainly doesn't look like a high end restaurant, but don't let the distance out of town and location fool you. This restaurant is top notch. Food and service are superb.

This restaurant is so much more than its first impression. It looks like a house in a city neighborhood and it is, but once inside you realize that everyone is committed to good service and delicious food. We had a slow, leisurely meals. We started with the meatball appetizer which included 2 HUGE, homemade meatballs. Risotto was delicious as were... More

My family and I dine at Cork quite frequently. It's a great place to celebrate a special event, or just spend a night out with family or friends. The food is always delicious and the service is always supreme. The creative weekly specials are unmatched by anyone else in the area. There is always something happening at Cork from weekly...

Just try it....guaranteed to like it. Downtown W-B but a little hard to locate. GPS had no problem getting us there. Very generous portions which was reflected in the price. Always go there when we are in the area.
