When you see the open sign hanging out over the sidewalk, you just have to take a peek inside The Cork Yard. Aptly named, it is mostly an outdoor restaurant between two buildings with a small seating room inside if you’d prefer that to open air dining. In the winter months, a large tent with many strings of lights makes the patio very festive. It’s very pretty any time of the year. They almost always have live entertainers playing, which makes for a comfortable place to eat, drink and socialize.
They have the largest assortment of wines in town; the list is extensive, from southern sweet to luscious California blends, as well as fantastic wines from other countries. Their beer list also is quite good, and their knowledgeable staff are happy to make recommendations.
During the week they serve soups, sandwiches and an assortment of appetizers including items such as a cheese board or the artichoke dip served with crusty bread.
On the weekends you might find them serving a Prime Rib dinner with all the fixin’s or a delectable Crawfish boil platter that is fun to share over a cold beer.
From the Author: I really like the atmosphere and I especially like the Sangria they make; it has just the right crispness and flavor for my taste. It's a fun place to hang out listen to music and catch up with friends. We sit outside to enjoy the fresh air most of the time; it is fast becoming one of our favorite places to go downtown.
