Great early bird special!!

We always go to the early bird special. 4-6 PM every weekday. They include a delicious house salad, dinner ( lots of chooses) your drink and even desert. Including taxes I think we paid only $14 each. Great deal good food and great service. We go at least a couple times a month. Love it!!!

It had been a while since we dined at Colby's so while our daughter was in town we made a return visit. We dined during the "early bird special" 4 to 6 PM. There are several "ebs" choices and I had the pork chops. Wife and daughter had the cobb salad, seafood gumbo and shared some cheese bread. All food... More

I love the atmosphere at Colby's. The service is always excellent & the food is great. They have a Long Island Ice Tea that will knock your socks off. It's so strong they only allow you to purchase two of them. I got the chicken tenders in buffalo sauce. The portions are large, which is nice since the prices are... More

Colby's has a great menu for their early evening special (4-6 pm) which contains 8 different entrees including Prime Rib, Seafood, Pork & Pasta dishes. Each meal includes a great salad, drink, desert and taxes for less than $15.00.

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
