Great place

We visited Colby's twice in the last month. Highly recommend. Friendly staff. Great meal. Not much more to say, but Trip advisor requires 100 characters.

Friend wanted to go here since not being here for 18 yrs. We all were in town for sports tournament. We had 4 teens and 3 adults in our group. Seated within reasonable time. Very busy night [prom and Saturday night] I wasn't hungry but did eat the spinach artichoke flatbread and glass of wine. I thought it was average.... More

We loved the atmosphere, the menu, and the food here. Off the beaten path right downtown quite a refreshing change from the chain places. Near the new convention center too.

We go to Colby's a few times a year. Never dissapointed. Always good food and very good service. If it was closer we would eat there much more often. It's about an hour drive for us.

Stayed in Owensboro in March downtown. Had a late dinner on a cold Friday night at this restaurant. Food was fantastic and the atmosphere great. Will absolutely eat there again next time in Owensboro.

Colby's is a nice downtown restaurant. We were in town visiting my father in law and his wife. They suggested Colby's. I'm always up for something different. The atmosphere was great. Service was excellent and prices are resonable . I had the pork chop dinner with two sides. I got two pork chops and a generous portion on the sides.... More

Not at all what you'd expect! Old furnishings, food was fair at best (group of 6 and 3 of us had to return our steaks), and very pretenscious! Must have been a great place in its day, Old money supported or something, but they need to move on.....

My disclaimer, I travel a lot and have eaten in many different types of restaurants around the world so my expectations are likely higher than most people. With a "historic" downtown location I was expecting a menu with more variety and one that was not so basic; it reminded me of a chain casual dining restaurant menu. The service was... More
