We found the reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. Somewhat hidden, pretending to be a regular house, it is very lovely inside, very down to earth, friendly, and hip (if one can be friendly and hip at the same time :). Our waitress was great. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and absolutely loved the stuffed... More

Very nice setting in this tastefully renovated two story building with fabulous food and service. A pleasant break away from the chain restaurants with very pleasing unique menu to accommodate any desire. While in the Wilkes Barre area this is a place you will not be disappointed with. Bar and Bar menu downstairs with a formal dining room upstairs that... More

Cork is a great restaurant for business clients or for your family. The bar atmosphere is upscale and the dining experience upstairs is really inviting. Whether you are looking for a quick bite or a special occasion meal, Cork has the menu to serve all tastes. Service is super friendly. The staff really really gets to know their customers!!

I'll start off by saying that I have become somewhat of a regular!! As other reviewer's have said Corks exterior is somewhat deceiving.. From the outside it looks like just another nice little neighborhood bar in North WilkesBarre... As you enter you'll see the warm mahogany glow to the bar area with ample bar seating and plenty of tables for... More

Best of the best in an area filled with great food. Lump crab cakes are not to be missed. The Cork salad with apples and nuts with house dressing is the best salad I ever had. My friend enjoyed her filet and 2 different martinis from a very extensive list. New favorite in the area.

Great restaurant. Yes, the location is odd but I figured they must be good to make it there. We sat upstairs which offers a quiet option to the Irish pub seen downstairs. Ask for this if you are eating with kids. Service was quick but not rushed. Children's menu is rather limited, but the full menu is great. Grilled chicken... More

Negative: Greeted with the smell of stale beer when we walked through the front door. Positive: Greeted by a friendly hostess. Positive: Both the red and white wine potions were generous. Negative: The house salad was made with BROWN iceberg lettuce. Negative: Spicy GrilledChicken with Harvest Risotto Chicken was not cooked. We were told that the chef temped it. He... More

Had our company Christmas party here( Thanks Bill and Ruth Corcoran!) food was amazing and atmosphere was awesome. Definitely check this place out!!! Can't say enough about Cork. Going back again and again! If you like salmon ask for Bill's salmon special dinner. It's not on the menu.

I moved back to the area from Manhattan a year ago and Cork has become one of my go-to spots! There's a spacious bar if you're looking to grab cocktails, a cozy upstairs dining room if you're looking for something more intimate and great outdoor seating if you're looking to take advantage of warm, summer nights. The staff is friendly... More
