The Colden Mill strives to make your dining experience unique and memorable, and is located just minutes from Kissing Bridge at 8348 Boston Colden Road. The historic and rustic atmosphere of the once Grain Mill dating back to the 1830’s, gives the impression of a time to be remembered. We aim to delight our guests with our Contemporary American menu highlighting Western New York’s abundant variety of produce and meats. Our casual yet elegant dining atmosphere always welcomes skiers and families. While our restaurant offers dinner service Tuesday – Saturday, our two banquet rooms can accommodate parties of up to 50 & 80 guests for parties 7 days a week, and also on or off-premise catering for any occasion.

Excellent outdoor dining; they were VERY accommodating and I felt all social distancing and sanitation guidelines were being followed. I never felt uncomfortable. The food was AMAZING! Very nicely prepared... I loved the butternut squash soup; very different and very well done!

Great food. Great service. We had a great table on the deck with plenty of room between us and the next table. Great view of the creek. Thanks!

The tables are separated nicely. The patio looked like a pretty place to dine but it was raining. I had the grilled romaine salad. It was yummy with the candied bacon. I also had the fried chicken which was raw inside. They took it back to cook longer in the meantime my husband finished most of his meatloaf which he said was okay. I ordered a glass of wine while my meal cooked. Usually when something is wrong with your meal restaurants offer some kind of compensation like a free drink or dessert. Nothing were offered. Fried chicken was good once cooked through.

Chef Matt did an excellent job of preparation and presentation. The coconut shrimp and crab cake were amazing! The bacon wrapped meatloaf is outstanding (and will feed 4!) We had a lovely time because the waitstaff wore masks at all times, the tables were spaced well, and all guests when they walked around. These are unusual times and they handle it well.

As a place that we go to often, it was as usual very good. We had three young children with us and they had a nice children’s menu as well as excellent adult entrees. Our server was very attentive and helpful.

Disappointed that my steak was overcooked and wasn’t offered anything to make up for it. Paid $28 for a steak I barely ate! Partly my fault because it took a bit to get our food and didn’t want to have to wait again for them to cook another one. Not that the waitress even offered that option, she just apologized and walked away...

We had a great time. With all that is going on in the world, it was nice to finally get out for a top notch meal! The dining room was well spaced out, to only what I can imagine to be half or less then it’s normal capacity. The staff was wearing masks and so were the guests until seated. We were comfortable with everything.
We were pleasantly surprised on everything from the service to the quality and presentation of the food. How have we missed this place all of these years! The waitress said these owner have had it around 5 years and we live with 15 minutes from there. We are so excited to go back again.

Last minute reservation was made and we were delighted with the service from server Cameron, manager Chrissie and owner Chuck! Don’t miss the French Onion soup 2 ways ! Coconut shrimp were sweet and savory. Excellent cocktails and conversation ~ lots of room to social distance in a quaint setting! Hats off to Chef Matt!
Thanks Colden Inn !

Dining in a quiet country setting in a very home-like-feeling restaurant is quite pleasant. We were able to sit and visit with friends and were well served with plenty of food, drinks, and a good wait staff. We all liked our meals very much (short ribs, eggplant parm, cottage pie, bacon-wrapped meatloaf) and dessert was great, too, (chocolate pecan pie, apple fritters with ice cream, and a chocolate bread pudding.)

We all want to go back again!

New Year’s Eve. Seems like they overbooked like crazy. Ran out of menu items, 50 minute wait. Felt so bad for the server, can’t count how many times she apologized. Food was ok but not accompanied with sides as described. Won’t make the NYE mistake again.

New years eve .... busy. Waitress inexperienced we helped her open wine bottle. "Entree is ready" she declared while we still were eating our salad. Problem arose when held our dinners in kitchen. I ordered medium rare filet while my brother ordered medium well. He received medium well while my steak was overdone.... more than well done. Waitress gave mine to my brother so during hold in kitchen my medium rare became his medium well. his medium well was mistakenly severed to me in cremated state! Figured out what happened.... told waitress and nothing was done to rectify or apologize.

New Year’s Eve dinner at the “Colden Mill” was a nice experience. The decor is what you’d expect at a “mill” which was very comfortable and cozy. The service was great especially since it was a busy night and we were up in the loft. The food was good, not great, but good. The creamy onion soup was very delicious. I liked it better than the traditional one and loved the way the soups were served in a divided bowl. I would go again in the summertime to sit out on the patio overlooking the creek!

Nice atmosphere, but limited menu, overpriced food. Fish Fry for 17.50? Batter was dry with no taste, half a cup of coleslaw and chewy bow tie pasta. Kids meal was 12.50 for a cheeseburger and fries? Fries were soggy and limited like all the sides. Waitress was ok, but could have been more attentive. Reviews confused us on here. Many better options and better quality food in the area. Only good thing was the bread. Surprised they are in business with the prices, quality, and service or lack thereof.

If you're looking for a relaxing atmosphere after a gorgeous short drive thru the hills, stop here. We were en route to the West Falls Center for the Arts for a concert, but our waitress was helpful getting us in and out within about an hour.

It was nice having a top-shelf dinner is such a Currier and Ives setting. The duck was unbelievable, and crab cakes are always a must as an appie. The owner Mike was behind the bar attentively watching over. I'll definitely go back---and recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, memorable meal.
