Good food but service needs improving

Was part of a group. The prime rib was excellent. However, I waited 20 mins for a drink (water), even after others in our party were on their second round and I had received my salad. I used to live in Owensboro and they had the same problem back then.

If your looking for a place to eat that's out of the norm from all the chain restaurants Colby's is a must! My husband and I are NEVER disappointed when we go. The blackened salmon BLT is mouth watering with a side of crispy sweet potato fries. If you're looking for a cocktail you gotta try their LIT.

I went to Colby's on the recommendation of locals. We all had early bird specials. Pork chops were perfectly grilled. Prime rib was fresh and tasty. Chicken tenders were hand-breaded and moist. Our server was friendly and helpful since it was our first time. We will return next time we are in town.

For my job, I need to travel around 13 states. I get to try out a fair share of restaurants, and Colby's definitely stands out in my opinion. Rather than your standard "blah" house salad, they have a variety of veggies, a slice or garlic bread, and some of the best bleu cheese dressing I have ever had. The entree... More

I love the varied menu. The menu offers several delicious choices. The worst part is parking; when the weather is nice the walk is pleasant, but not during bad weather. No good place to let elderly passengers out close to the door.

Nice restaurant in a historic building. There is a welcoming staff for seating. The wait staff was friendly, prompt, and professional. I ordered the Beef Manhattan and it was a large portion with a good beef flavor. I would recommend trying this restaurant if you are in the area.

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.
