Good food but GREAT service

My wife and I have eaten at the Colgate Inn on several occasions and our general feeling is the food is good, not outstanding, but reliably good. The purpose of our review is Adam, our server on the evening of 28 August. Adam appeared to be in his early to mid 20’s, graciously seated us at the... read more

Fantastic dinner of sea bass and steak. Having just come from Cape Cod, the fish was every bit as good as any meal by the shore.

Ordered a burger to go. Medium rare. It took almost twenty minutes, and now I know why. The bottom was like charcoal. Not a bit of pink in the thing. Really wish is checked before heading home. I will not be returning!! I don't care how hungry I am!! Choose Hamilton Eatery instead.

Ate here on our first of many visits to the Colgate campus. The dining room has a nice feel. The server was friendly and attentive. The food is just okay. However, there are not many upscale restaurants in the area so this one may be one of the better options. I ordered the Lobster Mac and Cheese so I could... More

Threw up all night long after they served undercooked pork. The atmosphere was nice but the music was too loud

We ate here while visiting Colgate. Charming dining room, but the food was okay at best. Great dinner can be found at Poolville Country Store and B&B.

This may not qualify for a review to be posted but we attempted to dine here recently, without a reservation, on a busy Tuesday night prior to the local Bouckville antique show, which draw thousands each August. Anyway, we were walk-ins and the host said, "yes, we can get a table ready for you right away." We waited. And waited.... More

We had dinner and breakfast at the Inn's restaurant. The food was very good and they had an interesting variety of choices. Service was very attentive and courteous. We ate dinner inside and it became very busy toward the end of dinner slowing down service. They recognized how slow they were and treated us to coffee. I would go again.

Originally from Utica, NY and stayed here two nights business/family visit. Very charming location, nice Inn with clean rooms decorated tastefully. Had dinner first night and breakfast pretty good food a little pricey.
