“great for favorite comfort food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

A reliably good meal; great variety; casual family style dining, affordable. They seem to be trying to get away from the just 'white bread' reputation. Great lobster salad. REAL mashed potatoes. Servers are always pleasant. Overall a good value for your money. Nice patriotic theme of hallway lined with photos and bios of employees who are serving our country.

“YUCK!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Can't begin to explain the nasty meal we had there.. the meatloaf was so awful there are no words to describe.Salad was just pitiful. In fact, all was so poor that I don't even want to waste more time writing a review...

“Local Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Cole Farms has been in business forever, and their menu (and prices) probably have changed much!! Classic diner food with some fabulous suprises (fried seafood is great, occasional prime rib special is very good and a very good deal!!) Prices are alwyas to affordable, food consistently good .. you really can't miss with this place (unless you arrive at one of the busier times .. then you're going to have to wait for what could be a fairly long time before enjoying your meal)

“overrated”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

I shake my head at some of these 5 star reviews. I guess some people have very low expectations in their dining experience. I've given this restaurant 2 chances, the second of which made half my family sick. The food is greasy and very lacking in taste. Most of the people eating there seem to be elderly so i suppose that explains why some still go there. All in all its not worth the trip for Denny's quality food.

“Wide selection of food, very reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

This restaurant seemed to have a lot of regulars and I can understand why. If I lived in the area, I’m sure that I’d be a regular too. My husband and I had lunch on a Saturday in June and were seated immediately. I expected a typical diner menu and was surprised that between the menu and whiteboard there was a better selection of salads, wraps, etc than I thought there would be. The food was fine and the prices were very reasonable. Clean restaurant, friendly service, large seating area. Be aware that you need to pay cash—no credit cards.
