Good food

Went here with my husband for dinner on our way to a lay in Newtown. It was mid afternoon so it wasn't too crowded. I had the Bacon Cheese Burger, medium rare w/ waffle fries.

Food was good, you can see why it's so busy here. The portions are huge. They make excellent clam chowdah. Also the iced coffee is great.

This is what a Diner should be. The food is excellent, the prices are very competitive and the location just off 84 is perfect. The portions are huge but well cooked. The omelette was not dry at all and well loaded. If you are near Newtown CTand enjoy Diners This is the place

We stopped for lunch as we were passing through on I-84. The service was excellent and our lunch time Challah bread French toast was mouth watering. The food was well prepared, hot and the presentation great. Fast and efficient. We were back on the road to our destination in less than an hour. Highly recommended. Huge menu, clean and friendly....

Huge menu, huge portions, conveniently located right off Route 84. Food is ok. Very friendly, accommodating waitstaff. Ridiculously reasonable prices. You cannot leave this place hungry - impossible.

The Blue Colony Diner is right off Rte. 841 which is a road that doesn't have a tremendous amount of places that you can access easily when you want to find a place to eat. But the most important thing is you get a good meal here. The food is fresh and tasty. The service is attentive.

Now THIS is an American diner! It was very busy when my mom and I arrived to eat lunch at 2pm but were seated easily and served quickly. The menu is extensive and the choices, near overwhelming. The food is very good, the portions generous and the place is very clean. This is NOT a greasy diner at all. Bathrooms... More

We have stopped at Blue Colony several times as we pass through Connecticutt. It is a typical Greek diner with a large menu, reasonable prices and good food. It is a very easy on and off Route 84 at Exit 10.

Two ramps to walk up and out of the Diner. Food was great value and delicious. I ordered Stuffed Pork Chops, came with Veg and Potato, salad, and beverage. Excellent value and taste. Brought home half of main course. Service could have been better. There July 2, 2015 about 8 pM.
