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!!

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 .
