Colony Grill: The Transformation from 99 to New Pizza Place

Have you been to the Colony Grill yet? Here's a peek at what it looks like inside.

Walk inside and you will not recognize what used to be 99 Restaurant.

The owners have opened up the space giving the illusion that it's bigger than it was before.

The restaurant, which opened on March 23, serves pizza, salad and ice cream and has a full bar with a German computerized beer draft system.

The pizza was good. Thin crust, but only one size and it's only 6 slices so do not go with a big appetite. They only serve pizza, salad, ice-cream, and beverage. I think it should be called "Just Pizza" it's definatly not a grill. Would not go back.

In 3 days of knowing about the Colony Grill, I've been there 3 times. It's Great, I highly recommend their specialty Pizza, Hot Oil Pizza with Sausage. It's Hot as in spicy with jalapeno. 2 people can split 1 pie, but if you're really hungry you can eat one by yourself, I did. Some other cool features I'll be back for, the kids’ area - there is a chalkboard wall for them to draw on and a couch area to watch a game on the TV over the fireplace and the kids, and the seating is roomy in the booths too - 6 adults easy. The party room tables have a built-in cold stone (cooling element) that keeps your beer cold. I'll be back for a pitcher of Guinness with a few people from work to test that baby out. For anyone that may want to complain about service, remember it's a new crew and they are just getting their legs about them, so be nice. Remember, This is a Pizzeria with table-side service and a nice selection of beer. So sit back and remember, it's fresh pizza and made to order. It's not a 5-minute turn around from ordering to your table - it's not a Dominos. I would recommend a beer and good old conversation during the wait you may just learn something.

Very disappointing. Painfully limited menu. Wait for pizza was 30-40 minutes, once we ordered. Pizza came with mushrooms instead of the sausage that we ordered. Waiter did not seem too concerned and did not offer a solution. (We would not have waitied another 30 minutes for a re-try.) Extremely noisy. Makes Bertucci's seem like a library. Will not go back.

Did you eat at the same place that I did on Friday evening? Wow!

We went Friday night - wasn't noisy at all. We had a favorable experience- the pizza was very good, the beers were discounted for Happy Hour, the salad was large enough to split, and the service was good.

We went in looking for a burger and were still looking for one after we were done... Pizza was great and salad and salad dressing were great as well but we were disappointed there wasn't something more on the menu... Its a bit pricey compared to other pizza in the valley for the size but tasty.

On Sunday night my wife and I excitedly tried a pizza, salad,w ine and a soda. We agree the Pizza was the worst we ever had, even in Italy. Small, overpriced, and tasteless. What a shock. Salad was OK but no chardonnay except for one for $9, n huse wine and a pitcher of beer @$16.00. The place was decorated with class but their "menu" leave MUCH to be desired. We were looking forward to a new great place and the service was great but that was it.

Pizza is excellent. Atmosphere is terrific. Many, many, many HD televisions, which should really make it a great sports bar kind of location. BUT, too expensive. They ONLY serve 12-inch pizzas. Our family of four (and our 7 and 10 year old boys are not big eaters) polished off every speck of two pizzas (and we did try the hot oil version and loved it!), one meager $6.99 garden salad, and three "endless refill" sodas and, before tip, the total was $42. I don't know how they're going to make it here unless they pull in a huge bar business.

We went to the Colony Grill this Sat. the 21st with another couple because we had bought a half off coupon from Savectnow.com. ($40 worth of food and drink for $20) We figured it was a good time to try the place.They were celebrating St. Patricks day..?? ( sorry you missed it...should have opened sooner) We ordered two 2 topping pizzas and 3 beers each during our meal. Service was quick but our waitress didn't know about any specials...we had to point them out to her on the flyer....The pizza is super thin (and only 12 inches) but pretty good. Really one person can eat one by themself. (My husband & I split a mushroom and Hot Oil and our friends got a sausage & peppers. This gives each person 3 pretty small, thin slices and 3 beers each. The bill was over $80!!! (without tip) Crazy! Pizza & beer!!?? Thank God we had our half off voucher! This place is really expensive for what you get. It's also interestiing that at their 2 other locations pizzas start at $8.50 but they come here to Avon and now they start at $10.... That night a radio station was there with give aways.... thank goodness we at least got a couple of Coor t-shirts and baseball caps to make up for the meager meal. We joked we should go to Subway because we were all still hungry...I really think they are not going to make it here...very expensive . And what's with the Irish theme ?? The shamrock in their sign?? They ONLY sell pizza, beer, liquor, soda, salad & ice cream..I don't know, we were disappointed.
