My wife and I spent her birthday weekend at the Everett Hotel and had three meals at the Cork & Bean. The food was outstanding and the wait staff even better. We have reservations for a weekend in the fall and are looking forward to returning and once again receiving the first class service that both the Cork & Bean... More

We will start by saying the atmosphere and decor were very pleasant. The food was quite good as well. The staff was friendly also. Unfortunately, contrary to what TripAdvisor says, we would not consider this a vegetarian/vegan friendly menu. From reading the TripAdvisor description we expected a much more extensive menu. Additionally the menu shown on TripAdvisor includes a large... More

Those running this show have put their hearts into offering and providing an excellent high-end menu without high-end prices. Beer list and wine list is well thought out, as well.

My husband and I stumbled on the Cork and Bean Bistro through a recommendation from someone staying at the same hotel (Nantahala Lodge). Our meals were great...home cooking with a little sassy flair and we really enjoyed the friendliness of the staff. The local brews were good after a long day of driving. Always on a diet, we rarely order... More

When it came to saying goodbye to a friend moving away from the area, our group chose the Cork and Bean, as it was the favorite for the entire group. Many of us are picky eaters with food allergies and the staff is very understanding of this and guided each one of us with our particular needs. We came for... More

The Innkeepers at the Folkstone Bed & Breakfast recommended this restaurant to us. She told them we were celebrating our Anniversary and the host at the restaurant made sure we had a nice cozy table for two next to the window. The food was excellent along with the service. Make sure you save room for the Italian cherry cheesecake! It... More

If you are visiting anywhere in the area make this restaurant a stop. Small but the food is top notch. We stopped in for brunch and it was fresh food made exceptionally well. I would recommend this to friends, families and couples.
