Historical place!

Look around the building, a very lovely old place. They were very busy when we went, but only waited a few minutes for a table. Our food was tasty: salads and sandwiches, one soup. Loved, loved this place. Only complaint, the waiter and waitress were swamped, so service a bit slow. But, it... read more

First time there, had the basic burger. Fries were greasy and for some reason I sprang for the 2nd side of cole slaw, almost $4. 1/2 cup of heavily horseradished slaw. Fries tasted like they were cooked hours before and kept warm, heavily salted. Burger didn't look like it ever weighed 1/2 pound and there was an odd taste. Bun... More

Came for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We had a group of 5 and they had a table big enough for us. Got a burger, French dip, philly, Reuben and salad. Portions seemed a touch small at first, but then again we all walked out full. Prices aren't too bad and you get good food for what you pay. Great... More

I like eating in buildings with history and this one has one (you'll have to visit here to hear all about it!). They have a nice menu of sandwiches, burgers, and some other nicer plates. The food was good and fresh. My only complaint was it was a bit loud and hearing was difficult without talking louder. The service was... More

Our waiter was young and inattentive. My husband said his breakfast tasted funny and he did not feel well afterwards. Mine was alright.

A great place to eat! A lovely inn and decor! The food was delicious and the service was great! A nice variety of food, we just thought that it was a tad on the expensive side for families, but the food was of great quality! We will be back!

Enjoyed a casual business lunch here. Really enjoyed the prime rib & black bean soup. My fellow diner's hamburger looked great. Missed out on trying their apple pie, but the cheesecake was good, too. It was a better than average place for conversation...not too noisy of a background. Quaint decor. I'd certainly return. Reasonable prices & good service.

Really a colonial experience! The new owners of the restaurant in the Colony Inn was really an unexpected find. Food is excellent and served in a creative way and with special attention for detail, even at lunch time. The quality of the beef was very good. Service was friendly and attentive. All in all, an nice stop along the Glenn... More

A co worker suggested we eat here for takeout for lunch and I hadn't even heard of the place before. I've lived in Palmer for 6 years. I had the Reuben with potato salad. It was delicious. I told my husband about it and we went there for dinner the next night and ordered corn fritters, buffalo chicken sandwich and... More
