The Colonial Inn was absolutely amazing! The grounds are gorgeous and the staff are so attentive! They worked so hard to make sure my husband's and my day was perfect, and they thought of every detail that I was too busy and stressed to think about. Tommy is so helpful throughout the whole planning process, and really knows how to handle overbearing and demanding family members. My bridal attendant Micheal, and the maitre'd Dara were helping us throughout the night, making sure we had everything we needed while we went around speaking to our guests so that we were actually able to enjoy our night. I can not thank them enough for what a beautiful night they gave us.

TOMMY TOMMY TOMMY!!!! I CANNOT SAY IT ENOUGH!!! Tommy was the reason my husband and I book the colonial inn for our wedding! He covered every single detail from start to finish!!! Made us feel like we were the only bride and groom booking the colonial inn and that felt simply amazing. He was extremely honest with us didn't let us book things just for the money. He was extremely sincere and that's what we loved about him. It was a pleasure working with Michael and Dara the day of our wedding, we cannot thank those two enough. We still here how they waited on hand and foot with our guests and don't understand how they did it because they were right there when my husband and I needed them. They are just phenomenal!! I have read the reviews for this place and couldn't wait till it was my turn because everything that is said about this place is sooo true!!
THE FOOD WAS BEYOND ANYTHING WE HAD HOPED FOR our guests still tell us how amazing it was and how much food there was..no one left hungry!!!
I wish we could go back and do it all over again it was our dream come true!!!
Thank you to the Colonial Inn for hosting such an incredible evening for us, especially Tommy, Dara, Michael and Randy!!! Thank you thank you!!!

I had my wedding reception at Colonial Inn a few weeks ago. It completely exceeded my expectations! Tommy and Paulie were extremely helpful during the planning process. When we got there the day of, Randy, Michael and Dara catered to our every need. They were there at every turn, taking my flute from me on the dance floor so I could dance, to getting us a plate from our Viennese hour so we didn't have to leave the party. We only made the last bit of our cocktail hour as pictures ran late, but we haven't stopped getting compliments about it. Many people have said it was the best the have ever been to. The bridal attendants (Randy and Michael) brought us food up to the bridal suite so my husband and I could try. Everything was delicious! I would recommend this place to anybody. It was the best day of our lives and the staff made it so we didn't have to worry about anything!

This past Friday, my husband and I had our wedding at the Colonial Inn and we were completely blown away with everything. The entire staff is so friendly, responsive, helpful, courteous, professional, and very attentive to detail. Truthfully, we could go on and on describing all the wonderful things about the Colonial Inn and its team, but it would never be enough. The food was absolutely incredible; we don't think we ever tasted such fresh food at a venue before. We understand that every person needs to select the venue that best suits their needs, but no other venue has a Tommy, Randy, or Dara. Tommy - it was a pleasure and a true delight to work with you from the moment we signed our contract up to our wedding day. Every single detail was perfect and the credibility is owed to you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day fantastic. Dara - the wedding itself would not have functioned if it weren't for your hard work and efforts. Thank you so very much! Last but certainly not least, Randy. You were a tremendous help to both of us, most especially me. I'm not too sure what I would've done without you. Thank you for not only making sure I had everything I needed, but also for making sure my mother was attended to. We look forward to sharing our wonderful experience with others, and will most definitely refer the Colonial Inn to those looking for a venue for their party needs. Thank you once again!!

There so many things that we cannot even put to words, but here goes. Aside from our son being born the Colonial Inn made this wedding the event of our lives. From Tommy giving us our every need to preparing for this wedding. He made himself available, be guided by the fact that this is a very busy establishment (just check the reviews). Tommy treated us like his own family and did not hesitate to give us what we needed. The place itself was ideal and perfect for our wedding needs and the flexibility shown measured to no other establishment. They catered to our photographers, florist, dj and family and friends. Randy the bridal attendant basically made the bride feel like she was a queen and gave her everything she needed with patience and kindness. Our table attendant made our night so free and easy without a care and with no hiccups. She catered to every request and was there at every part of the wedding. She was also extremely helpful with every aspect of the wedding and gave us spot on suggestions. The Colonial Inn was a shining example of professionalism, class and without out a doubt exceptional in every facet of our experience. We have attended several events here and to say the least this will not be our last one planned or as guest. Truly an amazing time of our lives and we couldnt ask for anything more.

If I could give more stars, I would. We were sold on the Colonial from our first meeting with Paul. He made us feel like we were meeting with family and we really loved the venue. We're not big marble over the top people and the dark wood and pretty ceremony room really won us over. After our initial meeting, we did a tasting and signed the contract there on the spot. The food was delicious. Throughout the process, we had the extreme pleasure of dealing with Tommy who made us feel like we were the only wedding they were working on and was always very accessible. Tommy gave us great advice and kept us on target right up until the day.
The day of went off perfectly. I seriously couldn't have imagined a better day. Our Maitre'D and Bridal Assistant were absolutely fabulous. I've never felt so taken care of in my life. They made sure we had everything we needed, including bringing one of almost every appetizer up to the bridal suite for my husband and I after our ceremony. I heard so many comments from guests that the food was among the best they've ever had and everyone enjoyed their dinners and desserts! No one left hungry!
Thank you so much to the Guarino family and Tommy for helping us with our dream wedding!

Just had my daughter's Bat Mitzvah there, and everything was perfect! I received a lot of compliments on the beauty of the venue, and many guests told me that they thought it would be the perfect venue for a wedding. Tommy, who coordinated everything for the event, was so professional and helpful, and the entire staff was wonderful. They offered so much food for the cocktail hour, and the guests told me that the food at both the cocktail hour and reception was out of this world. The ceremony room was absolutely stunning with all of the windows showing the fall foliage. I think it would be beautiful in any season. It was also very reasonable.
