Very good food, very good service.

This diner finds a way to keep the line moving even when there is a wait. The bathrooms need help. The water pressure is low and it could be one of the problems. The food is very good. The people are very nice and work very hard.

This is really more than a diner... with one of the most diverse menus I've ever seen ranging from typical diner fare to specialized Greek dishes. It does have a bit of a diner atmosphere, friendly and informal. I had breakfast, DW tried a Greek dish. Even with the waitress's warning that there was going to be a lot of... More

This place has a wide breakfast menu and good service but it is the breakfasts we ate today (two omelets with hash browns and toast) that set the rating; they were just average.

The most important thing about New colony diner is to go when they are not busy! Quite often the wait staff get flustered and your order may take an hour or not come at all. I highly recommend the breakfast sandwiches but again, if there is a wait, line or more than 4 tables per waitress, just come back another... More

Hed breakfast there on Father's Day with the kids, needless to say the place was packed so the service was slow (not their fault). I actually felt sorry for the waitress who was slammed but gamely tried her best to make it work. If there was a real disappointment it was the food. The pancakes were tasteless and my eggs... More

The diner was recommended by the hotel and what a wonderful recommendation. A great variety of food from sandwiches, breakfast , full dinner, etc. Service was great and the food came out quickly. Food was tasty and well priced.

I always have the pleasure of frequenting this location on my way through the Bethel area. Any menu item I have ever tried has never failed to impress and the portion sizes are quite generous. (Must try to hot pastrami, absolutely delicious) The service is impeccable, very polite and accommodating to any request!

Travel to the area on business twice a year and have most of my dinners here. Consistently excellent food, restaurant quality with diner prices. Staff is always friendly and attentive and always open. Easy on/off from the highway. Highly recommended.
