The atmosphere is great - '50s music, family oriented, delicious huge portions. The selection is huge from soups, salads, sandwiches to full diner with drinks and dessert. The owners make you feel like family and you never know who you might run into - there have been celebrities spotted in the diner on multiple occassions. If you're in the Bethel area I would definitely recommend you stop in.

Great diner!! The menu is huge! My family loves all the options. I can get prime rib, my wife can get a salad with grilled chicken, and my children love the pancakes and Mac & Cheese.
The soups are made fresh from scratch every day and are delicious!!
The Mediterranean platter of hummus, feta cheese, Greek olives, and toasted pita is amazing.

This place also has a FULL bar!

New Colony Diner is the best diner in CT!!! Their sautées are incredible! I ordered the "Chicken Princess" and it was OUTRAGEOUS! Huuuuge portion of breaded, baked chicken stuffed with crabmeat served over pasta. It was enough food to feed an army and yet it tasted like it belonged at a fancy high-end restaurant.
Their bread is super fresh and baked on site!
I'd recommend this diner any day of the week!!

We ordered the lunch specials. They looked good at $5.25 for soup, half sandwich and a side. We ordered chicken noodle and a meatball escarole soup with two shrimp salad half sandwiches. We also had a macaroni and a potato salad. The soup was uneventful, the sandwiches runny and the macaroni and potato salads were tasteless. In other words, the special was nothing special. We got what we paid for.

The new colony has been around for many years and has stayed consistantly good. Big menu and the prices are resonable. Waitstaff is very attentive and the food is in front of you before you know it.
