Cork & Cap must be doing something right seeing as how they've been around for 7 years! And to top that off, they are a little hard to find.

It's a beautiful place with lots of wood and stone, and the bar is dark but lit, kind of like a cave, but also like a hunting lodge. It's comfortable and interesting, so kudos to whomever designed it!

I haven't tried the food so I can't comment, but I felt the beer selection was fairly mainstream. It may have been great a few years ago but now everyone's caught up. And I understand they need to pour Yuengling and some major domestics - that's OK - but all of their other beers are fairly basic for the area.

Regardless, I'd say it's worth a stop. I hear that the food is very good, and it's got a great atmosphere, especially at the bar. Why not give it a shot? If you don't find the beer selection that good you can always hightail it out of there and go to Quips Pub which is right across the street and has a great selection.

First time visiting this new restaurant. Certainly has a good vibe when you walk in. Interesting decor with alot of old fashioned tools and equipment on the walls. I assume most of them were used in the old factory that was in the building previously. Food was tasty and reasonable priced. I had the rack of lamb for around $20. Beer selection was decent, especially for the area. DFH 90 min, Troegenator, Seven Gates and Prima Pils highlighted the tap list. Also had SA Summer Ale, Yuengling, Franziskaner and some other macros. Bottle list looked ok. All in all, a great place to eat and to get a decent brew with your dinner.

Went here for the 1st time and had a great lunch. They have one of the best selection of beers on tap in the area. 1st impression was this place would be very pricy, but that was not the case.

Food was very good. They had one of the most interesting soups on the menu. Chicken and Waffle soup. Its a must get.

The restaurant is in an old cork factory and they did a great job renovating.

Service was great and the manager even gave us a tour and a little history of the place.

Looking forward to going back for dinner.

this place has been open for probably about a month or two now. decided to stop by a few weeks ago for dinner with the wife. i was very impressed by this place. the food was delicious, and the service was great. also the renovtions to the historic build are phenomenal. very impressive place. the beer list to my surprise was one of the best i've seen in my area. stoudts, troegs, victory, dfh, lancaster Brewing company, magic hat, sierra nevada, plus all the macros'a as well. the design and layout of the bar is pretty impressive too. if your in the area this place is a must try.
