The food at the Colgate inn is erratic. There are days where it is AMAZING and days where it is not good. But that is because they have different chefs, some of whom are very skilled and others who are at the amateur level. But, what makes it all fine is the amazing staff at the inn. I came to the Colgate Inn for food probably 6 meals a week for an entire year, so I know everyone there quite well. Each of them is there to make your experience better so make sure you are honest if you don't like your food, they will make sure to get it right and bring you out a new meal within minutes.

Spent 4 years frequenting the Colgate Inn. The toll house cookie pie is a classic favorite amongst Colgate students, and is not to be missed. The appetizers are also excellent, in particular the truffle fries and quesadillas. The Inn recently began carrying some local beers from the Good Natured Brewery.

Visited this establishment twice while in town for 2014 Commencement. One night we sat in the bar area munching on appetizers and enjoying beer and wine, and we also enjoyed lunch in the main dining room after graduation.
Service here is excellent. Friendly and attentive staff that are engaging and thoughtful. Food is prepared well with no surprises. I did not explore all the rooms as some are private dining areas, but this establishment excudes taste and class. My friend has stayed overnight a few times and mentioned that her needs and requests were always taken care of.
I've heard it's hard to secure a room for the big Colgate days, but if you are in this area of NY State and want a great place to dine and/or sleep....The Colgate Inn should be your first choice.

After hiking on the great cross country trails around Colgate, my daughter and I decided to eat at the Colgate Inn. We sat outside (first nice day!) and enjoyed a glass of wine, then went inside to enjoy a great meal. The staff was wonderful and did not hurry us at all. I was only there for the weekend visiting my daughter and this was just a great way to spend some time together.

Stopped at the Colgate Inn for lunch while traveling in the area. The food was very good along with good service. Menu selections were varied and plentiful. The restaurant and the Inn are beautifully decorated, immediately making the visitors feel comfortable and welcomed. I am looking forward to returning.
