I'm a little conflicted as to how best rate this restaurant. The food is more than ample and pretty good but once the servers deliver it, they never return to your table. Pwoe went for breakfast and the food arrived quickly but my order was incorrect. I waited for quite some time while the waitstaff stood at the counter bar... More

Blue Colony is conveniently located right off of Exit 10. To me, it's a typical diner. But two servers, a mom and daughter, make the visit worthwhile. And the home fries are great! But this diner is always busy, so they're doing something right!

Stopped in on the way back from New York, Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014 about 8:00pm. Easily accessible - in and out stop - exit 10 off Rte. 84 N. Open 24 hours. Great experience... not fine dining. Diner was loaded, but, our party of 9 was quickly accommodated. We were seated in the middle at tables. There are booths, tables... More

I have been eating in the Blue Colony for many years. I frequently met clients and or conduct interviews in their spacious facility. I can always count on a good meal and a friendly and attentive wait staff.

We stop at the Blue Colony whenever we are coming home on I-84, as it is so convenient to the highway. If we are there around lunch time, we always look at the lunch specials. This time we had swordfish with a baked potato, large salad, drink and their usual egg bread basket for $8.45. It can't be beat. Service... More

My boyfriend and I recently visited this place with a bus group coming back from AC! I had no idea what I was in for but I knew that as soon as I walked through the door that it was going to be a great place to eat! There was about 60 of us on the bus so I'm sure... More

We always stop at the Blue Colony when we are traveling on Connecticut or New England. We are never disappointed the parking lot is an indication on the quality of the food. The sevice and friendliness of the staff is top notch.

Have enjoyed this in the past. Waitress was a bit rude. Ordered lasagna and wanted to help waitress from repeating herself to our group of 6 so was giving my choices for veg & potato but was told that was silly as it was pasta. The lasagna was burnt on bottom & had no veggies which I could have ordered.... More

So says their sign over 10 miles away on I-84. Service was diner great, the selection broad, and the food was very good. Portions were large and priced reasonably. Had to wait 20 minutes but it was well worth it.
