We went to a wedding in the Poconos on a Friday night. The hotel where the wedding was held told me they didn't have any rooms left. I went online, found the Academy Street Bed & Breakfast and got two rooms from Michelle. On our way to the wedding, we passed Cora's and mentioned it must be a hot spot... More

Staff so -so ... Not particularly friendly. Rushed plates off the table before we were finished .... Not because people were waiting .... Just poor thinking. Food fresh ....

Generous portions of good food, some creative dishes. Good service. The dining room was hot and poorly air conditioned. Prices reasonable. I've visited the bar where they seem to cater to familiar friends over occasional patrons (not a welcome feeling).The Monday night wing special was great the last time I ventured in.

We had intended to go to Coras for Monday night wing special. But after reading the reviews we passed. We ate there several times last year while vacationing here... and I should have reported the oyster special on Wednesdays. They were buck a shuck... but had to be the worst tasting oysters ever. After reading the reviews... and remembering last... More

We have been to this restaurant numerous times since it opened years ago. When first opened the food was good but the service was always horribly slow. In the past few years we realized that the food is not good anymore and the service went from bad to worse. The Chicken Cora which has been one of their signature dishes... More

Nice atmosphere and a variety of food choices. I like the food and the portion size but if you are in a hurry go elsewhere unless you eat at the bar. Waitresses are either slow or not enough of them. More than one occasion I walked out because of slow service.

We stopped in here to try out the food and have a few drinks. Overall, the food was pretty good. The mojito was watered down. I just thought the wait staff was not so much friendly. Maybe this place is known just to locals but I didn't want to stick around for a second round of drinks.

We arrived and were asked if we had reservations. We announced that we did not but none the less were given a table. We were two adults and two 12 year old girls. we all ordered burgers on what appeared to be a not too busy night. It was a good 30 minutes before our burgers were served. The burgers... More

The food is good, the service is very slow (waited for almost an hour just to get our salad) and the ambiance has something to be desired. If there was just more wait staff, the experience might have been better. If you are not in a hurry and have great patience the meal is worth waiting for, but it is... More

I wish I could recommend this restaurant. I really do. Unfortunately, even though the food was outstanding, the service is just really bad. We came back several times (because of the food), hoping for better service, but it never got better. Extremely slow, and almost rude waitresses. You get the feeling like you are inconveniencing them when you ask for... More
