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

My husband and I live about 30 minutes from Colby's and have many offerings in the Evansville area. However, we were looking for something different and dined with another couple on a Friday night. We were quite pleased with the atmosphere, food and the service. (I left a jacket that night, so we returned the following week and absolutely loved... More

We had the mushrooms for appetizer. They were ok. The breading was soggy. My lady ordered the Hawaiian marinated Ribeye and said it was good. I had the grilled pork chop and it was good. We were full,so we ordered a piece of the Banana Creme Pie to go. Later when we ate the pie we were sorry we didn't... More

Delicious food at a great price. We are a family of five and always looking for restaurants that feed our kids good food at affordable prices. Colby's restaurant does just that. Kids meals are 5.00 and include drink, meal and dessert. The portions are awesome! My husband had grilled chicken topped with ham and cheese and raved about how awesome... More

My husband and I stopped at Colby's for an early evening dinner as we were traveling through Owensboro. We had never been there and were pleasantly surprised and pleased with the ambience, wait staff - and most importantly - our meals. The grilled salmon was delicious and the prime rib was exactly what my husband wanted. We'll definitely go back!

Thank Rita H
