always consistently good food; reasonable; owner present most of time which makes you feel comfortable with food prep; specials are nice; decent wine selection--much better than chain restaurants.

I have eaten at Colby's many times, both for lunch and for dinner. (I mention this because tripadvisor will make me indicate a single occasion I was there). The food is pretty good and the service has always been very good. The menu for lunch is the same as the menu for dinner, with the exception of daily specials. This... More

Gumbo and chicken tenders are excellent. Service is very good and weekends needs a reservations . Lunch menu has a light lunch salmon, salad and fruit cup or vegetable around ten dollars.

Visited on a Saturday and the place was very crowded which may have been the reason our order took so long which is my biggest complaint. The food and drinks were tasty and reasonably priced. maybe try another day of the week.

Got the southwest chicken salad, wasn't bad but was nothing really special. I rather try something else on the menu than this.

Service was excellent, food was good, but restaurant was hot. Best menu item by far is the Hawaiian Ribeye!

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
