“Worst experience we ever had”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Food was cold. Sent it back and came back a second time, 20 minutes later, cold. Bread tasted like raw dough. No manager on duty on a Saturday night. Acting manager could not have cared less about our problems. Could not even get waitress to remember to refill our drinks. The entire meal was a horror show. Will not return.

“A good place for a function”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Went here recently for a rehearsal dinner. The service was excellent, the waitstaff was incredibly attentive and engaging. The space was somewhat cramped, but it was a large party of 30+ in an upstairs room. The room ranged from average to very good. If you go, try the mashed potatoes with cheese, they were delicious. The Vegetable ravioli was just average. All and all, I think I;d return if I as in the area again.

“Yes old but great.”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The brick walls are right in character. Everything from friendly bar & waitstaff to food quality was terrific.

“Classic local restaurant”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

"The OCC" is one of those places where everyone really does know your name. No matter how you ended up there someone will have a six degree of seperation story for you. The food is excellent with HUGE portions. The building, the old Norwood fire house, have a great warm feel to it on both floors. Go and enjoy a night out in Norwood history and I dare you to finish your plate.

“Wonderful Restaurant, Great food and service.”
Reviewed September 9, 2010

The Old Colonial Cafe is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. I live in Atlanta, Ga. now but grew up in Norwood. Any time I am back in the Boston area I have to go to the Old Colonial. The seafood is excellent and I love the fried clams. The Italian dishes are out of this world and there is something for everyone in the family at Paul's place. Ask for Dottie, she is the best.
