Best grilled cheese off i-84!

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

We have relatives & friends in southern NJ and whenever we are driving there and back, we plan our timing to stop at this diner. 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. The bakery has great homemade... More

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

I saw this sign 20 miles before I got to the Blue Colony Diner. I have driven this route a hundred times and somehow missed it before. It was bitter cold and windy, I was tired and hungry and wanting to get home to Boston before the snow storm that was predicted. So easy off and easy on is the... More

Typical Greek diner.has everything on the menu and if you look hard enough you'll find the kitchen sink. The food is a plus but don't order items that you shouldn't such as non diner entries. We have been there many times but you have to hope to get a server who graduated 8th grade. You can get a good meal... More

True to their advertising, this is an extremely easy off and on from 84. We were delighted to find this place. The interior is an upscale, very attractive, very roomy diner. The baked goods around the entrance are very enticing. I ordered a bowl of pea soup. It was the best restaurant pea soup I have ever had, and was... More

Great location - Right off Exit 10 of I-84 - Always open and food, service and management are great. Never a poor meal - Consistent Quality and Fair prices. The Owner makes it extra special - A must stop when you want a bite to eat.
