The close can be nice for an intimate drink if a nice port or bourbon is what you want, though there are nicer places in town for drinks / dinner. The dining room can be very bland, a bit like a country club dinner 30 years ago... I have to say, the staff at the Inn are super helpful, accommodating,... More

Love to have brunch or lunch at this place! Popular with visitors, old and young. I recommend that you sit inside to soak in the colonial charm and order hot tea which comes in a porcelain teapot and some sandwiches/soup/salad combo for lunch! This is not a great place to visit with kids <5 yrs age. After lunch visit the... More

The Colonial Inn offers great traditional food in the dining room, pub, or outside terrace (weather permitting). The menu offers a good selection of favorites and some local specials. Portions are generous, service is very good. The Inn itself is a historic site complete with its own ghost. Great place to stop and enjoy!

We ate in the back room, stopping in for a late lunch/early dinner on a rainy Saturday in September. We picked up my son from boarding school nearby and ducked into the Inn, where we were greeted immediately by the bartender, who took our drink order right away. Our food arrived just as quickly and the truffle fries are to... More

This was the perfect place to stop for a bite during our Lincoln and Concord history tour on a recent Saturday. It was crowded so we opted to dine in one of the quieter bars. The service and food was great. We each had soup, nice warm breads and a draft beer. We would definitely return.

This restaurant is a historic experience. It was great to sit outside on the porch. The dessert was good. However, the wait for the waitress to serve us was excessive.

If it is a nice day, you'll love sitting on the porch and watching people on the Concord Square during your meal, or with a beer or glass of wine.

While we were in Concord, we decided to drive down main street to find somewhere to eat. We decided to stop at the Colonial Inn. We didn't know there were several restaurants inside. After walking through all of them, we decided to eat outside on the front porch. The food was good and the service was, too.
