Review of Colonial Diner

Colonial Diner

Restaurant details
Reviewed October 12, 2010

As I don't like to eat at chains while traveling, the desk clerk at the Days Inn recommended Colonial Diner. The menu was large, the service good, & the food tasty. However, it is a diner & crowded & noisy. If you want good enough food but don't care about the atmosphere, this place is fine.

We stumbled on the Colonial Diner after our GPS took us to two chain restaurants that don't exist any more in Middletown NY, and we were SO glad! The restaurant was recently renovated and sports wonderfully updated, clean, 50s-deco furnishings and lighting. The portions are generous and the food is excellent, with good soups and both hearty and light entrees. I had a shrimp salad that was delightful with big shrimp and just a touch of mayo. The owner and servers were friendly and helpful, and urged us to sit awhile until an evening thunderstorm passed by. It's restaurants like this that make traveling a pleasure.
