My family and I just had the worst dining experience at this restaurant. Seating took a long time and the food took a long time to get to the table. I noticed one table of customers that left because they got tired of waiting. By the time we got our food, most of it was cold. The meats were overdone... More

My wife and I enjoy this place on nights when the Reds are out of town and we don't feel like making a big production out of dinner. Interesting menu, nice choice of beers, and not wildly expensive.

We like Mokka we eat there often (weekly) for lunch and have liked everything we have had, including breakfast items. However, the Easter Buffet was far less than good. The price was good at $14.95 including drink, but it turned out to be overpriced. The reservation\seating system was flawed. They apparently had slotted each party to a specific table at... More

Great breakfast place, normal size portions, reasonable prices, good service and good made to order food. Upscale diner food. Convenient parking just behind the building is available.

This restaurant was recommended to us for their goetta. So we were there for breakfast. A quaint neighborhood restaurant. I felt like I was among family.

There are a lot of places in town that rate higher on the best burger in town voting. I have had most of them and still regard this as MY favorite burger in town for the following reasons: 1) The size of the burger is just right. It isn't a huge hunk of meat it is somewhere around 1/3 lb... More

We were a very large group and had the whole upstairs on Mothers Day. The buffet had most of the normal items like scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes etc. The small chicken pot pies were very good plus lots of sweets and wonderful choc. Strawberries. Overall a good value and service.

Located two blocks from Newport on the Levee. This is a family owned business. They have an awesome breakfast lunch and dinner menu. They also have a stage where local musicians play.

Mokka's food is good. Their menu is eclectic with a nice variety for all tastes. I really enjoy the menu items that include goetta. They have a Goetta Grinder and a Goetta Grilled Cheese and others. I had the Goetta Grilled Cheese recently...mmmm mmmm good. One nit pick, my sandwich needed just one more slice of cheese. Great atmosphere and... More
