Stopped there twice during our stay. Had breakfast and lunch. Food is set up in a huge buffet with tons of choices. prices are charged by weight. Our two breakfasts with eggs, homefries, meat, corn bread, coffee was $10 and change total.

Can't remember when I've had worse service. Waiter was rude, very unhelpful, didn't know the menu and rang up the wrong prices for drinks. Food is meh.

Had lunch here twice so far, 1st experience was great, both the meals and services. 2nd experience was mediocre, both the meals and services. The ambiance is pleasant. Will try again as the meals on 1st visit were great.

I had not been to Kora's in a while. I was a three night a week regular. I have finally overcome so physical problems and decided to celebrate by going back for my regular. Kora's has always had a problem with beer selection and this time was no exception, poor choices makes me think a wine drinker is selecting beers... More

We visited on Wednesday evening to meet up with family from the U.K. Just what we needed - go service, good pizzas and appetizers to share. Visited on the Friday too but it could have been a different place - poor service and we never got our wine despite asking on several occasions. In the end we took our food... More

My family and I have stayed here several times throughout the years, most recently this past week, and we are always so impressed with outstanding customer service. The front desk is always so welcoming, we always feel like we are coming home again. It is our little home away from home. The rooms are always so clean, the breakfast is... More

My team sat at the bar for a business lunch. The bar tender could not have been a nicer person to us. She went out of her way several times to accommodate our group. No complaints about the service; the food however, was mediocre at best. There is nothing authentic about the menu. The texture and taste of the pasta... More

I went to Kora with two co-workers in August. Good food, although not fantastic. I'm glad we tried it, but compared to some of the other restaurants in the area, I'd only say this is good, not great. I might try it again.

Thank wteare
