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

Food, good! Atmosphere, good! Service, pretty good. Cleanliness, better than some other bar/restaurants I've been to, but there's always room for improvement, right!? The bar decor is colorful and bright but not overwhelming. The food is good... so good that when we first found this place, we returned 4 more times that week. We wanted to try so much on... More

An extensive menu, but expensive for the quality and tastiness of the food you get. Every time we've been there, the service has not been good. If you're into the bar crowd, though, they do a great business that way.

My husband and I were staying in Hawley at the Ledges Hotel with our 6 month old daughter and since the hotel restaurant wasn't open on Monday's, we needed an alternative. Cora's was close and the menu sounded decent, so we gave it a try. I had the BBQ burger and it was just so so. The BBQ sauce and... More

Passing by and remembering what a fun dinner we had two years ago we decided to revisit and it was better than we remembered. Monday night is "Wings and Yuengs" night so we ordered four kinds of chicken wings which was finger lickin' good, French fries and onion rings topped off with a pint of beer. Great choices. There are... More

We eat at Cora's once every couple of months. We have enjoyed nice dinners there, but mostly we love to come for lunch. Her sandwiches are such an amazing deal for the price. Our favorite is the smoked salmon B.L.T which is beyond delicious and piled high with salmon. It is so cheap, that you would pay more at the... More

You can get a great meal for pretty cheap or dine in and spend quite a bit more. Depends on your mood. I LOVE the Bistro burger!! Its sooooo... More

Wow! Wednesday night all you can eat steak and King Crab legs is not what it used to be! It used to be prime rib and crab legs and now it's just regular steak. The steak was like leather and the crab legs were were baked in the oven and way over cooked! Through the last couple years the price... More

We eat at Cora's quite often. The homemade soups are always unique combinations and very delicious. The portions are large so we almost always take home leftovers to enjoy again. I especially enjoy the Chicken Cheesesteak, the Turkey Melt, the Wings and the Maple Walnut Chicken. My only suggestion is that it's past time to change up the menu choices.... More
