Best Friday Fish Fry

This place has been a local favorite for decades. We go there for the Friday fish fry.....and the martini's.... Fish is cooked perfectly, best potato pancakes and slaw anywhere. Our favorite spot. The bartender on the main floor is wonderful and makes the best martini's. Must have a hundred... read more

We've been to the Colony House a few times, different days/ different times of day and my general impression is that it's an older crowd. Very traditional menu, steaks, fish fry, etc.... which they execute well - they do make a killer martini - but the bar in the Main floor is so small, it's hard to get a seat.

It all started in September 2000, when I wife and I moved into our house and wanted to celebrate our anniversary. We were too tired to do anything extraordinary, so we decided to stay local. We decided to try the county house since we were given a gift certificate as a housewarming gift. Little did we know that we are... More

Excellent fish fry, one of the best in the area. Make sure to make a reservation, they are always busy.

This place is nice in terms of the staff and the actual setting. The food was bland and high priced. Can't say we were impressed enough to eat there again. Gratuity is 18% for parties of 6 or more.

After being featured in Midwest Living, we decided to try the Friday night fish fry. They start serving at 4PM; however, since they are located in the country, it is a prime location to eat dinner and based on the crowd, a fan favorite. I would recomend that you make reservations; otherwise, you could wait an hour, or eat in... More

The Colony House is one of those little local places that is a real treasure. The food is always good and the staff are especially welcoming. The atmosphere is informal and relaxing and the prices very reasonable. It's just a great place to go and have a nice meal in a country atmosphere, knowing you will completely enjoy the evening.

We'd only been here once before, and it was impressive then as it is now. The building and the decor are "comfortable" and pleasant. The service is great. The food is tremendous. We both had filet and rated it as among the very best we've ever had. The cheese spread with the bread is a welcome touch. I think the... More

We go every year for my daughters birthday and other special occasions. It was not busy ordered our drinks. Got salads which were wrong and drenched in dressing. Soup was salty, crab legs ends were burnt, meat dry, shrimp overcooked and rubbery and chicken wings lukewarm and rubbery as was the celery it was served with, you could tell they... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the sheer beauty of the old home that houses the restaurant. The staff was very pleasant and attentive and the food was amazing. As an added plus the place was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The bus boy was a pleasant young man who works very hard at attending to all tables and we enjoyed taking... More
