Fresh food & fresh vision come together at Cork & Cap Restaurant. Our guiding tenet is simple yet uncompromising: use local ingredients and made-from-scratch, no-nonsense recipes. Our dishes pay homage to the rural heritage of Lancaster County, all with an extra pinch of creative license. Think Pennsylvania Dutch comfort food with a contemporary, cosmopolitan twist. From dinner to Sunday brunch, we offer Lancaster County-inspired cuisine all in a memorable, casual-hip setting. Dine in plush leather banquettes alongside restored brick and stone walls, lounge in the Cork & Cap’s rustic bar area, or enjoy seasonal outdoor dining (limited dinner menu Thursday-Saturday) on our patio around Urban Place’s signature smokestack.

I had the ribeye and my girlfriend had the braised beef. Both were very good, although my cut wasn't trimmed at all and had a bit of gristle in it. The server was a bit lackluster, and we often had to struggle to hear him and found ourselves in awkward silences with him. The overall quality was good, and we really liked the decor and atmosphere.

Cork cozy and modern at the same time. I was very impressed with their set-up during this tome of COVID and gradual re-opening. The space is still cozy while being amply socially distanced and airy. Cork & Cap is a gem.

Our waiter Emmit was terrific. He was prompt, courteous and professional. The food was good. The only concern was we were in the room to the left when you entered and it was a bit chilly for me. I had to put my coat on as it seemed drafty.
Overall I would recommend this place to others

We had a terrific experience. Food was fabulous, service was great. The only negative was that our waiter wore his mask below his nose, otherwise everything was lovely.

Where to even begin... simply put, this place is absolutely incredible!! Diver scallop appetizers were cooked to perfection- best scallops I’ve ever had! Brisket meal and Ribeye were delicious too! Jessie greeted us and checked to make sure we were good and our server Dylan was the freaking best!! To the chefs- whoever you may be- you deserve a raise because every single thing we tried was 5 out of 5. We dine at upscale restaurants often and this tops our list of one of the best we have ever been to. The whole experience was amazing!! Can’t wait to come back again.

Found Cork and Cap online. We enjoy seeing historical places reclaimed for new business. The history here runs deep into Lancaster history. Quiet, relaxing dinner with good food, service, pacing and price. A winner.

Everything we had was fabulous. (filet, carb cake and crake dip) Our server was super nice and attentive. Only downside for me was no orange juice to make the drink I wanted.

Restaurant very hard to find with poor signage. Spent 10-15 minutes walking around in the cold. Called restaurant to get better idea where they were located and no one answered the phone after 10-15 rings.
Food ok, but nothing special. Seemed to be short staffed and bar tender also served as the waiter. Restaurant interior interesting with cozy atmosphere. Wouldn't rush to go back.

Great ambience, but food and service left somewhat to desire. Our waiter had too many tables, and was difficult to maintain good service. My wife's scallops were good, but our beet salad needed some restraint on the walnut volume, and my brisket was dry and way too over cooked. Not sure we'll repeat.

Really like the vibe here for a date night. Had the filet mignon and crabcake which was the special that night. Hands down. Best steak I’ve had in my life. Don’t usually eat crab much but it’s what senorita wanted. Tried some. Will definitely get again. Drinks were amazing. This place is 10/10. Will be coming back
