We had their early bird special for $9.95 which included the entrée, potato, vegetable and either soup or salad. It also came with a desert which we could not eat because the portions were so large.

Stop in here infrequently but always found the food and service to be rock solid. This latest visit was, in fact, even better than previous ones. Very hospitable and friendly waitress, fast service and good lunch. Not a complaint.

So-so food. Good service. Too far from the interstate to make a return visit worthwhile, even if the food were better.

Diner is nicely decorated. Service was decent. Food was average. I had a grilled cheese, bacon, tomato sandwich and my friend had a hamburger. My friend said she thought the hamburger was a little dry.

Good food, clean, friendly service and reasonable prices especially from the daily lunch specials. Family oriented. The Manhattan clam chowder soup was mediocre and served in a very small cup.

The Colonial Diner has been around a very long time. Originally owned by the Farber family. Not sure who owns it now. The food is good, the servers are very friendly and the prices are pocket friendly. Stop in and try it for your self.
