This was my first time having a buffalo burger and I have to say it was pretty good. My family shared the cheese balls as an appetizer and they were amazing. The only downside was that the whole menu was over priced

But after 9-hrs of driving, we decided to check out Colonial since it's right across the street. It was a busy Friday night but the staff were all smiling. Sat down & Jessica our server came right away, took our appetizer... More

Great food, great service. Pastries were out of this world. Coffee was better than most pricier restaurants.

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and stopped in for lunch. The food was very good and the service was great. We each got a taco salad and loved it.

I only had their pie (evidently a big deal in the mid-west!) and it was great! We sampled four different kinds and they were all very good.

This restaurant got rave reviews and was family friendly. We has the flat iron steak and it was awful! There was no seasoning, it was tough and grissly. My daughters kids meal chicken nuggets were the best item we had. The salted rosemary bread they served before the meal was pretty tasty. Desserts looked fabulous but we didn't have any... More
