You did it again! You made another couple's dreams come true with your wedding magic. Aaron and I wanted to thank you for going above and beyond. With your cheerful smile and optimistic demeanor, you were a pleasure to do business with. Between coordinating the barn set-up, pig roast, and dessert, you took a big burden of stress off our shoulders. We had a dream wedding reception and everyone had a blast!
Val & Aaron
Thank you again for all you did to make my daughter's Saturday wedding at the Barn a magical event, everyone had wonderful, amazing comments about your food. We were so thrilled to be able to have Colby's cater our event. Best wishes always!
To anyone looking for an event venue:
Last year my two youngest daughters were married. One in May the other in October.
Both decided to celebrate their special day at the Wedding Barn.
They could not have made a better choice. Jim Kolb was SO nice and easy to work with.
He and his staff are the embodiment of a “can-do” attitude. The barn itself combines a rustic
setting with all of the modern services one would expect from a “fancy” party house.
One daughter was married on the deck and the other at the gazebo. Both locations were ideal
For me, as host, the best feature is the staff itself. Jim is VERY eager to please and such a NICE
guy and his staff mirrors his personality. They go out of their way to honor any request and ensure
that you have all your needs met. The Nashville Bar personnel who cater the drinks were every bit
as nice (and made sure that I always had a cold Coke ready when needed).
Even a shift in weather conditions, which had us changing from gazebo to balcony and back to
gazebo for the second wedding, did not faze the staff. They had everything moved and ready to go
within 15 min.!
If you are considering the Barn, my message to you is “Book it! Just Book It!”
You'll be purchasing wonderful memories spent at a unique and equally wonderful place.
I would like to thank you for the great food. The hockey party was a hit, thanks to the pork and chicken. The sausage was the talk of the party. Great food, Thank you for your hard work and great food,
Thank you so much for your donation of a free ice cream cone for each of the children participating in our Summer Reading Program. These gifts encourage the children to continue to read during the summer months. We truly appreciate your continued support of the Rush Public Library.

Thank you for all the work you put into making our wedding special. We had such an amazing day - the barn was gorgeous, the food was delicious, and everything went so smoothly. Thank you especially for the extra shaved ice bar! That was sweet of you to include on such a hot day, we loved it!
Sue & John Tapee
I'm a 3rd generation farmer and I'm hard to impress. I had wedding at your place 8-8-15 I don't do the internets but wanted to thank you. I booked your Barn early on before the deck and other improvements. We had a large crowd and everything you said you were going to do you accomplished with professional quality. Food, atmosphere, bar and dj could not have been better. Thanks again, you may give out my phone number for reference for future events . The thing I appreciate the most is if I called you answered the phone and took care of business.
The food was incredible, the meat was moist and delicious! The sides were tasty, loved the broccoli salad. I almost did not get it because I usually don't like broccoli, very happy with all the choices for sides
Food Experience I can't say enough good things about the food!!! We got the whole pig and if you ever get a chance to do that I highly recommend it! Not only was it a photo op, it was done to perfection!! And the mac and cheese was a huge hit!! We had a lot of children at the wedding and it was a favorite of kids and adults
Staff experience I don't remember the name, but he was quick and efficient, it was a lot of food for just over a 100 people and the trays were never empty. He was friendly and answered questions I had
ordering and website It was easy to order online, the hardest part was to make choices!! I would definitely recommend Colby's to anyone planning an event
Thank you all for putting such a lovely reception together for Andy and I. We had a great time! The food reallywas delicious (went back for 2nds!) The cake was incredible. The space was well used, set up and take down was great. Our guests had a wonderful time on the dance floor and relaxing on the deck. Thank you for all you hard work! Blesses on you & your Business.
Michelle & Andy Yestrebi
By chance, this was the third time in a week I enjoyed Colby's the quality and consistency of the food and service was spot on.

Shelley and Fred Gay
Our wedding in the barn was absolutely perfect! We wanted a casual, rustic
feel and there was no better place to have our reception. The barn is in the
perfect location (set in the middle of a pumpkin patch and next to an ice
cream/BBQ shop). Our photographer had so many beautiful shots, both inside
and outside, to chose from. Our bridal party and friends danced and sang our
hearts out all night long on the dance floor in the middle of the barn,
while other guests watched from the multiple levels. The charming feeling of
the barn was overwhelming. Thank you for offering such a unique, affordable
place to have rustic weddings in the Rochester Area!
We recently had you prepare the food for our annual summer picnic and I had to write to compliment you! Everyone loved the food and we all felt that it was a great value for what you charged. We were very impressed by the freshness of everything and there was enough food that we could probably have fed 20 more people!!! Everyone went home with lots of leftovers and thought that was a great benefit. Thank you so much for doing such a superb job.

Dear Kim and Jim,
The Scott family wants to send their hearty thanks for one of the best meals we have ever enjoyed on Thanksgiving day for our large gathering. I have been one of the chief cooks for this holiday in the past years. After hearing your ad on WYSL Radio in Avon(1040 am), I decided to take a break. Now, I really feel it will become a tradition. The meal was hot, delicious, outstanding turkey!, and the pies, especially the mince pie, were memorable.
I do hope you both had some time to put your feet up after preparing so many meals for your patrons. Again, I plan to continue my patronage for years to come and to share the tales of your great service and delicious food.
Thanks and may the coming year bless you both with good business and cheer.
Wendy Hall, Dr. WV Hall and the Scott family and friends.
Last year you catered our parish annual volunteer party - everything was fantastic! We would like to have you cater this year's party as well, We would like the piggy Party #1 for approximately 220 guests - delivered. Thank you so much for all you cooperation and I am looking forward to hearing from you,
Vicki I. - Peace of Christ Parish
Thank you so much for the delicious Thanksgiving meal that you catered. Everything was so well preparedand packed, it was a wonderful experience and I will certianly spread the word and come back again
Kim and Jim,
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you and your staff for an absolutely fantastic showing at our Mother's 80th birthday party last Saturday. The food was out of this world and there was plenty of it. (I'm still eating pulled pork!) Between my Sister, Mother and I, we heard nothing but raves about how cool it was to actually see the pig on the spit as they came in, s/he was certainly the star of the show (outside of our Mom of course:) Jim they also commented about the great job you did setting everything up. Very neat and efficient! The food was not only very good, it was fresh, hot and different. The broccoli salad was a huge hit and everybody commented about the beans. I don't think many people put ground round in beans, it was just enough to make it unique. I can tell you no one went home hungry!
Returning to work everyone asked me how it went and I didn't hesitate one second to tell them "perfectly", worth every penny and more. I also won't hesitate to call or recommend Colby's in the future for all the reasons stated above. Thanks again for a great job, it was a perfect day all the way around for our Mom.

Dear Jim and Kim,
This note is thank you both so much for yet another amazing pig roast. I read the reviews from other patrons and they have all said both individually and collectively what El and I feel regarding your events. The food was unparalleled as well as the set up and delivery. Our guests were so pleased and very satisfied and complimentary regarding the food and varied menu. Everyone left full and happy!
Thanks again for making our outing so memorable and for all of the great attention to detail. This was our 5th booking with you and we, as well as others, will certainly be contacting you again as the need arises.
Many blessings to you and your family and as always, my love and prayers to Jeremy.
Donna and El
I have such great compliments for Colby's. We recently had a pig roast catered by Jim at our new home in Macedon. The food was fantastic! Then we had the ice cream! OMG!!! It is the BEST ice cream I have ever had! Absolutely delicious! Not only the food, but the timing was right on and there were absolutely no worries!
thank you Jim! We will always have you in the future and will always recommend Colby's!
Dear Jim & Kim!
What delicious food! My husband recently brought home food from a catered luncheon at B&B Manufacturing in Avon. All I can say is “WOW”! If the leftovers tasted that good, I can imagine how super the food was when it was served earlier that day! We had some of your pulled-pork, chicken legs, broccoli salad, baked beans, potato salad and that luscious Apple- cornbread! Talk about melt in your mouth! I don’t think I’ve ever had any cornbread that was soooo delicious before!
I am sold on your home cookin’ with a definitely down-home style! I intend to tell everyone about you and your gastronomical delights! Keep on cookin’, we’ll all keep on eatin’!
A very satisfied by-stander,
Grace Johnson, Avon N.Y.

Jim & Kim , Thank you again for catering our pig roast! You did an awsome job and everything was wonderful. It was a pleasure working with you. Great Job!
We used you recently for a High School grad party. Everything was wonderful. Ordering was easy, pick-up was very efficient, the staff was friendly and the food was AWESOME !! What a spread. We had so many compliments from our guests and there was plenty of everything. We asked for extra pans so we could make steam tables for the hot foods and put the cold foods on ice. It worked out perfectly. After 5 hours the hot food was still hot and the cold food was still cold.....great for those that came late and wanted a meal. We worried about having too many leftovers (or worse yet, running out of food). Not a problem, and we were glad to have some leftovers as it tasted just as good the next day. Thanks again...we will be telling others about you for their parties.

I just wanted to let you know that the pig roast was a big hit at our family reunion. People had nothing but good things to say about it. The food was delicious and the servers were wonderful. They both were extremely easy going, polite and friendly. Many people commented on how professional and pleasant they were. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Thank you for helping us have a memorable 50th reunion.

Thank You for the great job catering my sons graduation. I never received so many complements in my life about the food and service. As you said the kids were excited to see a real roasted pig.
