I decided to give the Cork N’ Cleaver another chance but unfortunately it let us down again. Thirteen of us went to enjoy a dinner of prime rib only to be told that they were out. How does a restaurant that specializes in prime rib...More

Could hardly see each other, it is so dark. Eleven of us went there because of their "prime rib" and came away disappointed. I did not have prime rib but the special 14 ounce New York Strip ($40.00) which was nothing to rave about accompanied...More

Decided to try the onion soup (again) and continued to have very low opinion. Tastes and looks like beef bouillong cubes mixed in water and covered with croutons and cheese melted. Does not have any onion in it. When mentioning to this "young" waiter. "yes...More
