We love their early specials during weekdays. They have steaks, pork chops, meatloaf, sides, and dessert for around $15 which isn't bad at all. I love the atmosphere...

Colby's has an eclectic menu- the loaded potato soup is a must try! They have excellent appetizers-try the loaded nachos, and excellent desserts! The chicken tenders and prime rib sandwich are favorites. They offer an early bird special some nights before 6pm. If you want great food, give Colby's a try.

Colby's never disappoints. If you only gave one place to go in town, you won't be disappointed either. Amazing food and atmosphere.

We arrived around 5:15 PM on a Friday evening and the restaurant was full, but we were seated and waited on quickly. We ordered off the Early Bird menu and had great steak and chicken entrees at a reduced cost. Our salad and soup were served very quickly and were delicious. The cheese bread that accompanied the soup and salad... More

I brought my two departments to Colby's for a holiday luncheon. The place has a great atmosphere, it is a bit dated but that is part of the charm. We had a group of twelve so not a huge group. Drinks & apps came out quickly and the servers remembered who ordered what...that's really important to me and shows the... More

I was at Colby's with a business associate on a Wednesday evening and it was a good middle of the road dinner. They have a nice wine list and an excellent Southern dessert menu. I ordered Talipia New Orleans, which was blackened Talipia served with some shrimp and scallops in a hollandaise sauce. The fish was excellent. The seafood not... More

Colby's had a good menu of sandwiches and steak. The waitress was very friendly, and my filet was warm and good. Probably one of the better places to eat dt.

On a recommendation, my colleague and I had lunch here. The staff was fantastic--our waitress was more than helpful and had a great sense of humor. The food--on the waritress' recommendation--I had the prime rib sandwich. Great recommendation. Done to perfection!! Great prices as well.

My first time visiting Owensboro so I relied heavily on past reviews to make my dinner selection. Colby's stood out to me and BOY was it the right choice! I knew it would be a hit when the Trolly driver said, "Are you headed to Colby's?" without being prompted. It was also recommended by our hotel bartender even though there... More

We had a very wonderful waitress that made our visit even better. This was the first time I had eaten at Colby's and we opted for the Early Dinner Menu. I got the Salmon with my sides being the apples and alfredo. The food was AMAZING!!!! If I ever go back to Owensboro I will be sure to stop by... More
