The positive ... we were seated quickly. Drink orders were taken and served. Then we waited, and waited, and waited for food to be served. No explanation, no apology ....... we ordered food that would have taken little time to prepare and plate. The food itself was ok.....but a total of 2 hrs. for all service was not acceptable.

We then tried to order food from her... More

I love having breakfast at the Colony Inn! The food is served family style and includes English muffin with jam, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage, fried potatoes, and potato pancakes. The pancakes are especially good! They serve them with molasses syrup, very good! Beverages include milk, coffee, OJ, just about anything you could want. This is always a treat to eat... More

Food is delicious, served family style and you get all you can eat. Had breakfast - meal included fruit, toast, OJ, pancakes, eggs, fried potatoes, bacon and sausage. So much food, we didn't need any additional servings.

What a great old restaurant. I come here as often as I can when I am in the area. Great fried chicken, great breakfast, but come hungry! The atmosphere is great and beautiful paintings on the walls.

I am appalled by anyone who could give this place a good review. I have eaten a lot of German food. Both my meal and my Mom's meal were tasteless. I mean, the meal was so bad I was actually angry. Like, angry for the rest of the evening angry. The only good thing I can say is that the... More

My wife and I are taking a mini-excursion to the Amana Colonies in Iowa. Our first meal was at the Colony Inn off of 47th Ave. It is a family style restaurant, where the sides and salads are served family style. The salads came out first. There was a regular salad with a buttermilk dressing, dill cottage cheese and sauerkraut... More
