Decided to give Cork a try while visiting family. We all had appetizers couldn’t pick a favorite they were all awesome. The lobster special was fantastic and my brother can’t stop talking about the short ribs. We will definitely be back.

Found this little gem on TripAdvisor and we are so glad we decided to give it a try. From the moment we walked in it was just perfect. The service, martinis,appetizers, entrees and dessert just blew us away. We will return soon with the family.

Great food, drinks and service. The homemade pasta suggested by my server was out of this world. A bit out of the way from where we were staying but definitely worth the trip. Next trip to Wilkes Barre I will definitely return.
