Colby’s is a very established eatery in Owensboro. Great chicken tenders and the hot bacon dressing is great. This is a very lively place to eat but noisy if you want to talk in private. Just don’t talk but eat good food.

This was a little out of my way as i was staying downtown for the weekend, but anyone i asked about donuts said go to this place. Well i am glad i did. These donuts were so good, glad i ventured out of downtown again for another great find.

Came to dinner with my cousin. Cozy dining room where everyone knows everyone. Our service was delightful.
My steak was tender and served exactly ad I ordered it. Dinner salad was fresh and delicious. I encourage patronage of privately owned places.
Stop in it is good.

What a pleasant surprise! After spending a dreary night in dreary Owensboro, I wanted a decent cappuccino on my way out of town. And I very nearly skipped The Creme Coffee House, and am so glad that I overruled myself and stepped inside. Visually, it's delightful, with a funky, friendly atmosphere and--big bonus--an oasis out the back that offers privacy and a shady outdoor ambiance. But what about the coffee? My cappuccino was very good - not one of my all-time best, but really much better than I was expecting, with a balanced flavor and crafted foam. The Creme definitely deserves your business.

I was in Rockport overnight and checked Trip Advisor for a place to eat (VERY few options in Rockport). I wish I would not chosen to eat here.
The only thing I liked (being a Train aficionado) was the Caboose that is attached to the restaurant-although once I was inside I saw how it was attached-with insulation hanging out and visibly dirty areas around it. That should have told me that this would not be a pleasurable experience.
The service was slow especially considering there were only 2-3 tables occupied while I was there. I ordered Shrimp Fajitas and the appearance was okay but they did not bring the tortillas for a few minutes!
I have never stated this in a review before-I was feeling sick to my stomach within 10 minutes of leaving the restaurant!
I can not recommend this establishment- the food was not good and it was DIRTY!
Do yourself a favor-take a picture of the Caboose from outside as you are driving by to find a better place to eat!

Fetta is a must try in Owensboro. The pizza was delicious. I absolutely recommend the mashed potato pizza. It was surprisingly very good. What stood out most though was the service. We visited on a very busy Friday night and service was very quick. I’ve never been anywhere where the staff was so attentive and friendly. Treated everyone like long lost friends. They alone are a good reason to try this place out. I will definitely be adding Fetta to my list of must try agains.

I had NEVER heard of this hidden gem until someone brought some cookies to work. I paid a visit on Valentine's Day of this year after finally figuring out where it is located. Obviously EVERYONE else knows how to find this place! Absolutely some of the best sweets ever!. I am going to try to order a cake from here for my wife's birthday. I can hardly wait.

This is a large restaurant with appealing decor. Service was efficient and friendly. I tried the buffet, which had a marginal salad bar, soups, entree and sides and desserts. The entree and sides portion heavily favored beans and vegetables and pork and mutton. The meat was available as ribs for the pork, as well as pulled and sliced for both pork and mutton. My first time trying mutton and it was similar to pot roast in texture and flavor. The pork was over cooked. My biggest issue was it was not apparent the meat was smoked: no smoke taste, no smoke ring. It is possible that is how barbecue is done in Kentucky; it was my first time trying it.

Some of the best donuts in town -- but don't forget to pickup an Apple Fritter and chase it down with some of Diane's coffee... A really great place to make breakfast a memorable event while in or passing through Owensboro...

After a day in Owensboro, I went back to my hotel and realized that the city I was staying had very few restaurants, so I went here. The pizza itself was very tasty, but for one pizza it was over $25 not what I was expecting, but this is about pizza and that was excellent.
