My husband and I have recently moved to the area and decided to celebrate with our son and his companion. We were not disappointed with the selection of food choices and each one looked better than the one before. We found the spot which is in a residential area. Apps were varied and entrees were so filling that we did... More

From Wine to Dessert, Corks offers a wide range to accommodate every customer new and old. On a recent visit, we tried to order as many vegetarian options as possible to let the... More

Went for dinner in a Friday night and it was hands down some of The best food I've eaten in the area. I had a vegetable ravioli with a Marsala sauce and my friend had a chicken risotto dish. The food was amazing. The portions were large and while a bit pricey the food is well worth it.

We celebrated my husbands birthdays dinner few nights ago and the food and atmosphere was great. The service was fantastic and atmosphere was also. We regularly eat at Cork and it is always a great and fun experience. Thanks Kathy Dudish

The shrimp and grits were spicy and plentiful. House salad is uneventful. Bread is hard rolls. Sweet butter is a nice touch. Menu has a variety. Seafood pasta was tasty. Meals are around $30. Service is attentive. Atmosphere is a local pub. Great find!

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!
