I always like to give the upside first...good location, service happy hour drink prices. On the flip side I would not visit again, the food was average at best and the appetizer was not edible. The bathroom was so dirty I would not use it and the overall atmosphere was not to my liking.

We tried this restaurant since we had a Groupon coupon and it was in walking distance to where we were staying. It wasn't exactly what we were expecting but ok. The food was decent and reasonably priced. We were surprised at the music playing at 5:00 PM - full of foul language. Not our kind of place.

This is the second time I've been to the Colley Cantina. The first time I had a quesadilla which was very good & today I had the burger. It was done to perfection...down to the grilled red onions. However, what I liked most was the appetizer of Mexican Street Corn! Ever had an appetizer that you said to yourself,"why didn't... More

I have not eaten inside since the revamp, but have had take out. The food quality was decent before, it has gone up significantly since the new owners took over. The numerous salsa options and choices for tacos and other baja style fresh dishes are great for a change of the normal pace. With all the different choices it would... More

I can't say enough good things about Colley Cantina! BEST fish tacos and bloody marys in GHENT! Also wanted to let you know that Luna Maya down the street is where we went first and they made us so angry! They wouldn't let us sit on their patio because of a 40% chance of rain, which never came! Then they... More

Had a really good time hanging out here for drinks and late night appetizers at the bar. Food was good and so was the service and prices were very reasonable.
