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

I really wanted to like this place. We were on our way to Turkey Red, and I remembered the rave reviews that the Inn has been getting, so we rerouted. I called ahead to make sure they served beer and wine. The building is really cute, its an old Colony Days hotel, and it's got a very rustic feel, cute... More

When visiting Palmer you can't go wrong if you head to the Inn Cafe for lunch or dinner. I've eaten there five or six times already and I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal or experience. It's always good. One of my favorites is their Full Rack of Ribs. A lunch favorite is the Pulled Pork Sandwich.... More

My husband and I went there for an early anniversary dinner. They brought out lovely bread with a home made balsamic vinaigrette butter- which was really good. My husband had the seafood steamer/boil pot - it came in a bucket with crab, shrimp, clams etc. he said it was awesome and was a good value for all that seafood. I... More

My family ate dinner here with our children. It was the nicest meal we've had as a family. The building is so charming, a turn of the century boarding house. The staff was warm and kind. We enjoyed the crab and bacon stuffed mushrooms, fresh baked grainy bread and herb butter, bbq ribs and ribeye, homemade key lime pie. The... More

As a Valley resident, I always enjoy taking friends & realitves visiting to the Inn Cafe. A charming pioneer atmosphere & amazing food. I am not a quiche person, but their lobster quiche was absolutely amazing! My father-in-law thoroughly enjoyed the clam chowder. They use local food when possible & always tastes like a good home-cooked meal.
