Colby's has been in business for several years, and it continues to be one of the most popular restaurants around this area! Food is delicious and service is great. This restaurants is one of the few in Owensboro that takes reservations. Children are welcomed as well. Love the location and the atmosphere!

Great Valentines meal! The bistro steak was tender and spiced just right. You can't go wrong with any of the sides and the potato soup and cheese toast is very yummy. Live piano was nice and managed to cut through the noisy atmosphere. Four stars instead of five due to the traditional menu.

Locally owned. Best place to eat in town. Friendly staff and top of the line food. Excellent Caesar dressing. They serve a cheese toast with the salads. They offer fettuccini alfredo as a side. Cheesecake is chilled to perfection:)

Colby's has been here over 20 years. Great for families, singles, groups, couples, business meetings, and cocktails. Large food portions, big menu, big salads, and known for its chicken tenders and chocolate chip pie. Lots of windows, across from the courthouse, and only two short blocks to the river.
