We found Colonel's to be excellent. We stopped for lunch in Northeast Harbor. We had wonderful service and the food was excellent. It's also a bakery. The bread was perfect. Highly recommend.

My wife had Mexican grilled chicken salad and some great corn chowder. I had a scallop and lobster pizza. Everything was very good. We even got some chowder for lunch tomorrow. We will eat dinner here again.

We are a family friendly restaurant and enjoy the customers that dine with us. We would never ask people to leave because they were noisey. That's just not the kind of restaurant we are! Perhaps you would have enjoyed more of a fine dining experience?...More

There is a bakery in front, a bar in the middle, and a restaurant in back. We sat at the bar late one night and had a pizza. The bartender was very friendly, and the pizza was good. The wine pour was great. A very...More
