The place was dirty. The blinds had so much dust, the Windows had dust around the framework, there was past diners stuff on thw the floor and it smelt sour. There was a napkin under the table very noticeable but the lady did not pick it up. This place needs a good cleaning. The food was not that great. Really frozen hasbrowns. Come on for $8

A little pricey for the portions served. Ice cream sink was good. Nachos were passable...would not order them again.

I go to Randall's and IHOP and they don't charge for putting whip cream on top. Colonial charged .69 which is uncalled for an my other ordered a waffle that was advertised with strawberries and they charged extra for strawberries. Also food is not as good as Randall's and IHOP
