Went for breakfast. Service was good. Food was overpriced and not prepared properly. Eggs benedict is usually very satisfying, but they didn't toast the english muffin. Bacon underdone, and sauce was thin and tasteless. Ricks down the street has way better food for much better...More

Great place with awesome Greek salad. My buddy actually had breakfast for lunch and it could have fed two people (or one of him...he's a big guy). Check it out....classic diner in a great area if you're shopping or running around town.

Typical Diner. Service is great and fast, even when crowded. Food is always good and cooked perfectly. Prices can't be beat!

I stop in on occasion. Good selection in the menu. Always a friendly staff. Coffee is pretty good too and they'll keep it full for you. Check out the special board. If you see the stuffed pepper soup, try it. I'd give 3 1/2 stars.

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.
