I was looking to enjoy a late morning breakfast and came across this diner. I was impressed with the prompt and attentive service. I was delighted to see that Challah French Toast was on the menu and ordered 2 eggs scrambled with it. The servings...More

The food and the service here is always good. You get the usual gigantic diner menu with everything from breakfast to dessert and of course the early bird specials. My favorite is the hungry man breakfast which I usually get for dinner.

Extensive menu. It was quite busy for lunch. Large quantity of so-so quality. This is not fine dining. Probably best in the area..

Positives: wide menu Negatives: while the portions are very generous, taste may not be commensurate. Buffalo wings were nice for starters. Service was super fast.....a bit too fast. Perfunctory, with a smile. Salad arrived first, then wings while we were eating the salad, followed swiftly...More

Amped up diner experience. Large menu with many specials. Had the stuffed peppers. Two huge peppers with meat stuffing over flowing, salad, and bread. Didn't finish the entire meal. Tasted very good and served quickly.

Stooped in NewYears morning after a late night and wedding in New Year's Eve. This place is awesome! Great food, hot , fast and delicious! Wished I lived closer. Western MA doesn't have diners like this.

I'd actually give it 3 1/2 stars if I could. They do have a big selection on their menu. Waitstaff is friendly enough. But, it's not a place I would prefer to go to over others. It's a typical dinner.More

We appreciate your feedback, but we respectfully believe that we have much more than a "typical dinner." Our homemade mac and cheese is something that won't be replicated at most places. We're really thankful for the rating, but we want to truly impress you --...More

I go to the Colony diner a few times a year with my kids. Burgers are on the menu. My son likes the Cowboy burger with onion rings. Check out the Colony diner website and click on the menu. Good listing of burgers there.
