We've gone numerous times and this was the worst service we've had it was due to our assigned waitress just had to many tables. She tried but just couldn't do it. Then when we told the lady at the front while paying our bill. She acted big deal barely apologized and then dropped us and moved on. Rude food was... More

the weekend was octoberfest and were probably quite busy earlier- however when we were there it was NOT!! It took us 10-15 min to even be seated -in the bar & then the bartender/hostess acted like we were inconveniencing her to even get our drinks after 30 min. waiting in the bar! 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

We were disappointed in our recent breakfast at this restaurant. It is very quaint on the outside, as is the entire area. However, our waitress had a large number of tables to handle and it was impossible to get her attention for anything. Breakfast is served family-style, with refills, which might be nice if you could get service. But then... More

This is our go to when we are even close to this area. Great for family style. We stopped for lunch. I shared the Ruben since I wanted home made rhubarb pie. My son wanted to know if we could have a restaurant like this in So. Cal. Since "all the food there is fake." The only sauerkraut I have... More
