Ate here with my wife on December 19th at 12 PM. Huge and clean operation. The voluminous menu must have weighed in at 3 pounds. Plethora of food choices. My wife ordered breakfast and I had a chicken Gyro. Our server's name was 'Pat'. Great gal who made certain that we were well cared for. The food is good but... More

We'd had passed the Blue Colony many times on trips from New York to Boston and assumed, given its apparent longevity, that it would be a good place to stop if we found ourselves passing by at lunchtime. AdHoc-Traveller loves diner food. We finally did stop there for lunch, twice in fact, in the past couple of weeks. Given its... More

My wife and I have wanted to try a meal at Blue Colony Diner for a while now. We have stopped here a couple times for a quick cup of coffee and one of their giant pastries on the go. If that is your intentions for your visit, by all means stop by. Really good, over sized pastries and typical... More

Stopped by for dinner on the way from NY. This place always impresses me. This time ordered the baked stuffed shrimp, which had the best stuffing I think I've ever had, and great portion sizes also. Had cheesecake for dessert which is also made on premises, and either I was still hungry, but also was the best I've had. Very... More

Had a good experience last evening at the Blue Colony Diner, I would recommend this place because of the ease of access from I84 in Newtown. It has some amazing soup and the diner food you would expect to find around 10:35pm at night. The only drawback I saw was the chicken wings. But the rest of our meal was... More

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
