I dine here often. The service is wonderful. You are always greeted with a smile. Food quality is great. I highly recommend the French dip.

Ate lunch there and the food was very good and reasonably priced. Service was fast, the staff was couteous and the place had an old time family restaurant feel.

my heading says it all --- the food at Colby's is decent; the atmosphere is nice; and the service was good. For lunch, I had the chicken salad (just ok), a regular side salad (again, just ok), and the chicken with cheese (again, just ok). The service was very good and the deli has a nice atomosphere.

Our family loves Colby's Deli and the people that work there. We visit about 1x/week. If you go very often you will see a lot of regulars who work downtown near the restaurant. My favorite sandwiches are the turkey melt, baked chicken breast and the french dip. Dessert has to be the orange muffin.
