While my sister was visiting, we took her to Colby's thinking she would enjoy the place. We were correct! Next time in town she mentioned it as a place she would like to return for dinner. A variety of selections from sandwiches, early bird specials, or evening meals. You can't go wrong here!!

We came here with 4 adults and 3 small children. Usually with this many kids most restaurants stick us in the back corner but they gave us nice booth up front. Our waitress was one of the best we've ever had. Drinks were kept full and she always had a smile on her face. The Kentucky Burger was delicious and... More

The food is delicious, but the staff makes the experience true Southern hospitality. Of our party of four, three had prime rib. Perfectly prepared, mouth-watering and filling. Even though it was an early bird special, it wasn't down scaled. We even got a piece of cake for the early bird price. (The cake was delicious) I highly recommend the food,... More

Seriously, you can never go wrong with Colby's . Great food, relaxed atmosphere, wonderful staff. All of the best Owensboro has to offer! And you can park , eat dinner and enjoy the beautiful downtown afterwards to make a whole night of it! I have traveled many places but Colby's is truly something special .

The service was great and we were made to feel right at home. We ordered appetizers which were fast and delicious. I ordered the chicken fingers - which were wonderful. Their sweet... More

We ordered a 1/2 order of the loaded chips...they were great! Then, we decided to split the 3rd street burger with onion straws. Plenty of food and the burger was amazing!!
