Simply the best

I've been eating at Colby's since 1994. Their food & service are always consistently good. And their chicken tenders are simply the best I've ever had. Anywhere!

Have you been to Colby's yet? What are you waiting on? My wife and I went there for my birthday dinner. I will just give you the layout. First we had a really good and nice waiter, his name was Mike. He ask us what we want to drink? So we both get a water and a beer. We ordered... More

We went to Colbys last night for dinner. My husband ordered the prime rib and I had the shrimp and scallop linguine. My husband asked for medium and he got well done and my linguine was swimming in sauce and really salty. Needless to say we were both not happy with our meals. The waitress was pleasant. We will not... More

Another trip advisor recommended Colby's so I gave them a try. Colby's is downtown Owensboro in a rehabbed building, the décor and atmosphere is fresh and updated; very nice. I was there just before 6:00 pm so ordered the daily special; $15.00 for the whole meal. I had the house special chicken which was a BBQ'ed chicken breast with a... More

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.
