I'm not joking when I rated this place as 'terrible'. I cannot think of a better word to describe it. The last meal I ate here, about 3 years ago, was horrible and since then I vowed to never return...EVER. I ordered 'the special' that day which was something to the tune of a steak alfredo dish. What I got was a bowl of overcooked pasta in a bland who-knows-what kind of sauce with steak grizzle on top. I told the waitress that I was unhappy with the meal and she basically shrugged and walked away. No apology, no offer to take it away and bring me something else. Nothing. Not even a verbal acknowledgement of my disappointment. Even if you wanted to go to the Colony just for a drink, you can expect a watered-down, mini-sized, overpriced beverage. I swear the 'iced tea' is brown water...presumably a powdered mix but with ZERO, ZIP, ZILCH, NADA flavoring to it. Yes, this is a negative review, but I can't even truly express how I feel about this place. I know it's been around for forever, but the food doesnt have to taste like it has too.

Service above average, good meal and fair prices. Perch was lightly fried and mash potatoes very good.

Most diners go because they have a coupon or Local Fine Dining Card. You just need to know what items are the "good ones". Many older folks or people that aren't looking for a fancy rest. like it. We have eaten there numerous times as it is in a good location, they accept reservations(recommended) and you can find healthy food on the menu. Their wine and drinks menu is good, they have a decent bar and sometimes live entertainment. Would recommend.

had chicken marsala - flour lumps in sauce, very little marsala flavor - it was more like gravy - the chicken breast itself was not tender and high quality - another customer nearby unhappily returned their unchewable kebabs to the kitchen - for the prices you presume it is high quality chef-prepared food - that is NOT the case
