Easy Off - Easy On

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... read 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.

I come to this diner often. Lately, once a week but usually at least once a month. It's bright, it's clean, it's popular and most importantly, the food is good. The gentleman and lady at the front are always smiling and welcoming. We have some waitresses we like the best - Stacey, Diane, Pat and Julie are always good to... More

We certainly enjoyed our breakfast stop at this institution of classic diner cuisine. It has been open since 1973 according to the clippings on the wall. Service, atmosphere and food were exceptional and our meal came superfast! The place was full of locals, but we were treated just like them. The counters were full of enticing baked goods. Highly recommended!... More

We stopped here because it was very convenient to the highway while we were travelling. The diner itself was clean, quaint, and had a comfortable environment. When you walk in the door, the first thing you see is a display case full of all their homemade yummy goodies. Our server was nice, and filled our coffees without the need for... More

Blueberry pancakes were excellent. I got scrambled eggs w/ sausages. Excellent. My wife got chicken parm w spaghetti. It was just ok, not bad for a diner. Easy to get to, just off I84. They looked full up but we were seated immediately and food was served quickly. What more can one ask for at a diner?
