About Cork's

We believe that food is meant to bring people together, create community, and invite conversation. This is exactly what you get at Cork’s—a mouth-watering meal in a casual, welcoming environment. While the Mladenka brothers laugh easily and often, they are serious about top notch customer service and the food that comes out of their kitchen.  Delicious fried fish and shrimp were one of the first meals the brothers learned to cook.  Their days of creating priceless memories with family and friends surrounded by fresh seafood inspired them to do the same for their customers – Welcome to Cork's!

Brothers Paul Mladenka and Michael Mladenka were born and raised in Louisiana with a love of all things outdoors. They grew up fishing, hunting, and cooking with their family from a young age. Blessed to have strong culinary influences from both sides of their family, they have combined their love of the outdoors with family recipes and nearly 50 years of combined restaurant experience to bring you authentic Cajun Style Fried Fish & Shrimp in a friendly very fast casual atmosphere.
