Nostalgic and a Huge Menu

I have been to this place many times. It reminds you of an old 50s diner -shiny exterior and cheap interior. They have a huge selection - the menu is in a very very small font and probably has over 400 entrees you can get (steak, roast beef, meatloaf, chicken or any breakfast item you want as... read more

We were two cars with 6 people on our second day of driving from North Carolina. I saw this billboard about 20 miles before and decided it would be a good place for lunch. If you go there bring your appetite, the food is great and there is plenty of it. My daughter whom would live on salad (no she's... More

We discovered the large road sign for the Blue Colony Diner located off Exit #10 on route # 84 in Newtown, Connecticut back in 2013 while travelling from N.S. Canada to South Carolina. It works out to be at the right time of day for both directions of travel. Easy and direct on/off exits close to Route # 84. You... More

...because the portions are Flintstone enormous. With a menu as big as phone book (they have everything) and piles of food to match, the Blue Colony is a classic diner. Meals come with soup, salad, diner-baked challah, coffee, drinks and two sides. The gut-busting plates are plenty to share and the food is solid if diner-fare is what you're looking... More

Fast service, extensive menu, good food, very reasonable prices. Many celebrities have eaten in this restaurant (check the posting on the wall near the restrooms - even John Lennon ate there). Travelers along I-84 all know of the Blue Colony Diner and make it a planned stopping point on their trips through New England. The Diner is open 24 hours... More

I am very picky when it comes to my food and service. These folks did not disappoint. They should franchise and put one near my house.

I stopped for lunch. Had the fish special. Talapia, baked potatoe with soup du jour. The fish was deep fried and it wasn't dry. It was fresh and flaky. The baked potatoe was done well served with a side order of sour cream. No veggies but the price was reasonable at $8.00 for this meal that also included soup. A... More

Food is excellent and the menu has something for everyone as well as serving breakfast anytime! Easy on and off highway. Staff is friendly and service is fast and efficient.

I have been coming to the Blue Colony Diner for years. I know to always order diner classics so it is not like I'm expecting Michelin star quality food. Went this past Friday night with 2 friends. No complaints about service however the food was less than I expected. The meat loaf had one overwhelming taste and it tasted like... More
