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

Always excellent food and service! Love the downtown and it's service. My husband and I visit at least once a month with friends or family.

A couple of years ago, a waitress accidentally spilled a plate of barbecue and barbecue sauce on my clothes, including a very expensive pair of Armani jeans and an equally expensive Italian coat. The bottle blonde manager tried to brush this off. Her only offer was to send me to the dry cleaner across the street and wait naked while... More

We go to Colby's often. They have an early bird special like no other. For under $15.00 you get a lovely salad with their delicious cheese bread, the main course ( lots of choices) a desert and your drink. We just love it there. The atmosphere is charming and nostalgia inspired. Bill & Stacie Owensboro Ky

I frequently order from Colby's and am always impressed with the kindness of the staff, speediness of the service, and the quality of the food. My work will order large orders from Colby's almost on a monthly basis and they are always good about delivering on time, placing names on orders, and always adding a personal touch to the meal.

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.
