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.

The ambiance was great. Service was friendly and good. The menu could offer more choices. Parking was somewhat of a problem. It's on a corner that seemed to have a lot of traffic when we were trying to back out of the parking space. I would recommend it to a friend. The ride out on an autumn day was beautiful. We are very glad we tried this restaurant.

First of all, we like the drive up. The 3 different dinner dishes that were served, all were super, well prepared and very delicious, no complaints. The dinner rolls were great, could have enter a few more. Finally, the waitress was super and funny with a sense of humor. We all had a great time.

Colden Mill is our go-to night out. Food is always outstanding. Matt is an artist in the kitchen. And Chuck makes the BEST Cosmopolitan there is!

We went for s wonderful birthday meal. The food was delicious. The restaurant did not read my reservation notes. We did not receive the table I requested ( although they did move us once I told them I did not like our table) no candle in the dessert, didn’t hand the check to me. I’ll go back, but with the understanding they don’t care about my simple, advance requests.

We were able to sit out on the patio, which overlooks the river. It was like sitting in a tree house! It was enchanting! The shrimp Mac and cheese was divine! The tuna dish was not as good, but the flavours were wonderful. Service was excellent and all the staff were quite friendly. We used a Groupon and we were welcomed as any other patron and asked to come again. I have rarely had that level of enthusiasm with using a Groupon. This is a great place and I recommend it highly!

We made our reservation for the deck, and it really was perfect! The tables are nicely spaced apart, and it's very cozy surrounded by trees with the view of the creek and the sound of a small waterfall in the background.
And the food- fabulous!! The four of us all had something different and it was all excellent! Cooked superbly, large portions,
phenomenal taste! I guess my biggest complaint is the roasted veggies portion was a bit skimpy.
We will be back there, and soon!

Food was decent. I had the tenderloin pasta which was tasty, my companion had the filet mignon which was slightly overdone. The chorizo pepper was good, and different, and the grilled romaine salad was great. Dessert was the sorbet which was very flavorful and refreshing. Sat on the deck and it was beautiful. Waitress was friendly and attentive, if inexperienced. Overall a good experience. I expect we'll be back.

Colden Mill is outstanding! We enjoyed a beautiful, relaxing night out with our family. Started with drinks at the bar and continued to our table where we were greeted by our always sweet waitress. Our meals were absolutely delicious! The chef is amazing and his attention to detail is superior.

I love the Colden Mill's food and ambiance. Typically we receive superior service. However, this trip was a disappointment in that regard. The server forgot about a beer my husband ordered. It sat on the bar for 20 minutes before it was served, and my husband had to remind her. We were not even close to finished eating, with forks in our mouths, and she asked if we were ready for dessert. A few minutes later, while still visibly eating, she asked if we wanted dessert. When we said no, she asked if we were ready for our check. She was either in our face or completely out of the picture. It was a strange visit to say the least. We will return to the Colden Mill, but request a different server in the future.

We were very happy with our food and service and the ambiance of the restaurant. There were very few others dining so it was very quiet in the restaurant. I have only one suggestion and that is to offer a few other choices that aren't so high priced. This would certainly allow for more frequent visits to the Colden Mill. Overall, my party of four was very happy.

2 couples on a night out, first time here. Once a grain mill, the Interior includes lots of rustic wood and antiques. Exterior a large water wheel dominates. Dinners were delicious. Salad ordered were the Iceberg wedge, presented about as well as you can 1/4 head of lettuce, and an antipasto reminiscent of and old Italian restaurant. I had the Eggplant Parm Napolean, wow! Wife and friend had the Meatloaf, and with the BBQ glaze it was the best she had ever had. A fish fry was good, and very filling (something they do all days they are open). The water glasses were never empty, someone was always making sure we had all we needed, and our waitress was especially friendly and attentive. A Great experience, highly recommended by all in our party. Would be good for special occasions. We were greatly impressed with our evening. I should add the place has changed hands since originally opened several years ago, and much for the better.

What a quaint restaurant! We hadn't been in a few years but we were so glad we came back. We had a fish fry, others at the table sampled the salmon, fried chicken and meatloaf, all of which were exceptional! Very well prepared, interesting combinations (salmon was prepared on a savory pancake!) and nothing was rushed. They also have a good wine list and when the selection we wanted wasn't available, had another suggestion ready for us. We will definitely return.
