I may just be picky

I tried Cora's because several people recommended it to me. All of them said it was good. I found it to have a bar like atmosphere, and I found the food to be just average. Nothing to rave about. I will give it another try to see if maybe I just ordered the wrong thing.

Dinner( OVER Salted Crab Legs ) took forever to get. Lunch ( Under Cooked Hamburger ) took forever to get. While there waiting for Lunch the Drunks at the bar were loud and unruly. The Bartender kept serving these already drunken Loud obnoxious patrons with no regard to the others who were trying to enjoy their meal.

Horrible experience. Food was undercooked. Wrap had stuff on it we asked to leave out. Soup sent out wrong size. And not to mention my son was sick from the steak. Took 2 hours to get our food. Very under staffed. Owner was told about all these things and she didn't care. Place is also very dirty. We should have... More

This is a family-style bar and grill with great dishes (oysters with blue cheese appy is great) and friendly service. It is open every day and worth visiting more than once.

Went with friends for the Wed. evening steak and King Crab leg special. Was not disappointed. Began with a fantastic ceasar salad and bread and then on to the main event. Crab legs were cooked perfectly and did not even need the drawn butter served. The steak was not memorable but it broke things up and it was good.

Usually I love going to Cora’s Bistro in Hawley PA. The food is always so delicious. But me and a couple other people walked in and were treated so disrespectfully. We went into the bar area to grab a table on the top row since we had kids with us, it was very early so no issue. We asked and... More

Poor quality food as well,as poor quality ingredients. Disgusting Strawberry Daiquiri that lacked taste. Charged 10.50 for 1 drink. We are in Hawley, Pa., not NYC. Ordered basic bar food (2 people, one bar drink, one hot tea, an order of wings and fries, and a sloppy, cold Reuben) Took 45 minutes to get the food and a total bill... More
