This restaurant recently closed :-(. We used to enjoy coming here for dinner. Unfortunately, one must walk past the open bar area (where smoking is allowed) to get to your table.

This restaurant is kind of out of the way of all the traffic of Owensboro. Good food and great atmosphere. Perfect for date night and the tables/booths are secluded.

My wife and I enjoy dinning at Z's and went again on Valentine's Day. I enjoy the Porter House Pork Chop as one of the best I have ever eat. Z' s is still on our list and this meal is at the top.

I hope this place never closes. It is very unique to Owensboro. More like a place I would find in NYC or maybe L.A. Possibly even Chicago. Food is excellent- service impeccable.
