“Great roast potatoes!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Trail is not your gourmet destination, but this restaurant is a good place to refuel. The lasagna was just OK, but the roast potatoes were truly delicious, and the portion size very good. Service was friendly and efficient. The place is a bit of a barn, so no atmosphere to speak of, but you will eat well.

“Family tradition when visiting Trail”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Always more than you can eat. Salads are exceptional. Whenever we visit Trail, the kids want to eat at the Colander. Family style, serve yourself, as much or as little as you want. Pasta, meatballs, chicken, potatoes salad. VERY reasonably priced wine (some would say cheap!)
