We attempted to make reservations at the Colonial Inn on a Wednesday evening for 7 PM and met with some resistance from the man (Inn Keeper, I assume) answering the phone. He told us business was slow and they would be closing by that time.
Wow, did that give us cause to worry, especially with that early closing! Because we had a Restaurant.com certificate for $50.00, we made reservations for the following night and with a bit of sighing and hesitation on his part could only get reservations for 6:45 PM. That was fine we told him. We arrived promptly at 6:45 and were seated immediately in a small room in the Inn. It is a very old place and with some imagination you could vision it's former grandeur of days gone by. Our waitress, an older woman, was very gracious and attentive to our table. She seemed a bit hard of hearing or flustered at times and apologized for any delays. She was also waiting on other tables in a distant room. Our meal started with a bowl of onion soup ($6.00) which was very good and was followed by a refreshing salad of mixed greens topped with their creamy house dressing (included with your meal). I ordered the Scallops and, oh my! They were by far the BEST scallops I have had! So tender and fresh! They were served with a choice of side dishes. My husband ordered the grilled asparagus and I ordered the mashed potato and we shared those side dishes. Both were excellent. The other couple at our table choose a salmon dish and the steak au poivre. Both were very pleased with their choices. We love things old and enjoy dining in older restaurants so we did find this place appealing. For those who would like to linger over a delicious, well prepared dinner in a quiet atmosphere, I recommend this place for its superb menu! Too bad it is not open for lunch! It would make a delightful place for an afternoon Tea Room!
