First visit before a concert. Odd local place which has a very 1960s atmosphere. Very small with dated interior. We didn't have a reservation, hostess seemed kind of annoyed that we didn't, so we were seated in the bar. When we walked in all the locals at the bar looked like, "who are you?" Mostly older people hanging out and talking. Tables were very large barrel back chairs! Menu was brought to us on a large meat cleaver!

Service was pretty good. Had to ask for sliverware and catch the waiter to ask for refills. I got the NY strip which was good and my wife got the teriyake chicken which she enjoyed. Overall, good meal and interesting visit. Very much a local place! We probably won't return but it is worth a visit.

Every time we go to Cork n' Cleaver we enjoy our visit. Great steaks cooked perfectly, specials are great too (this time was a double bone in pork chop) plus the baked potatos come out perfect and the salad bar is a meal in itself!

A survivor of the fern bar era, this out of the way place does a bustling lunch and dinner business. Good specials of fish and steaks and fine soup salad and sandwiches keep the vision alive. Medium priced entrees and large salad bar are the reason. A bit crowded seating is offset by cool jazz on the subtle sound system. It's full of repeat customers.
