A little costly, but good food.

Family friendly and good sized portions. We had a great dessert, a banana split which came in a miniature kitchen sink! The food was good and we would definitely eat there again!

The service and food was excellent. Portions were generous. My son had the Tuscon Benedict and I have eggs and bacon. Both were very good!

My parents who are in their 700 love this place. I took my dad for Father's Day. He loves that he can use a ton of coupons and loves the food. The food is ok but not that great.

Their vegetable soup was best I have had, salad was perfect size with fruits on it and tasty dressing. Waitress was caring, hot tea came together lots of choices of tea bags. Lots of menu, hope I was more hungry. Located just front of Quality Inn.

Colonial was the first restaurant we visited when we moved here 36 years ago. Other trendier places have become our new favorite breakfast places, but when they were packed this morning, we opted for an old favorite. We got right in, the food was excellent, service couldn't have been better, prices were comparable to the other places in the area.... More

We have had breakfast and lunch there a number of times and have never had a bad experience. We recently had a 100 year birthday catered and no one had a complaint about the food.
