From Waterfront Views to Southern Classics, Here’s Where to Brunch in Owensboro

Here at Visit Owensboro, we’re of the belief that brunch is a year-round sport. So while there may not be a specific season for brunching with your besties, there’s something about eggs benedict and mimosas on a warm summer day that has a nice ring to it. 


Luckily for you, Owensboro has an awesome lineup of brunch spots. We’ve got cozy indoor spaces, outdoor patios, waterfront views, outdoor patios with waterfront views. We’ve got restaurants with specially crafted cocktails and mocktails for brunch, and even a local spot that serves up one of the best brunches you’ll find anywhere in Kentucky. So keep on readin’ if you’ve been in the market for a new place to taste some delicious food! 


First up, we’ll start with a place where you’ll need to plan ahead for brunch as they only serve it once a week. Famous Bistro is indeed famous for its Saturday morning brunch, and this local restaurant is somewhat of a hidden gem for out-of-towners who aren’t familiar with the restaurant’s incredible breakfast food. You’ll find everything from steak and eggs to crab cake hollandaise to Greek omelets on the menu here. You can dine inside or order pickup, but it’s best to call ahead for seating if you’re eating indoors or on the patio. Saturday Brunch is offered from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturdays. Even cooler, you can enjoy bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys until 2 p.m.! 


Next up on our list is Windy Hollow Biscuit House. And, yep, you better believe they’re known for their biscuits! And while you can find everything from a country ham biscuit to biscuits and sausage gravy on the menu, there’s a ton of other delicious items you can try out here! Windy Hollow has a huge brunch menu complete with different breakfast plates, chicken and waffles, pancakes, omelets–you name it, they’ve got it. You can also find an amazing variety of flavored coffees, teas and smoothies here, and they’re all absolutely amazing. You can brunch at Windy Hollow Biscuit House from 7 a.m.-2 p.m. every day of the week except Monday. 


They may be famous for their seafood, but the team at Lure Seafood and Grille puts together a super nice brunch for guests every weekend! You’ll find a little bit of everything on this brunch menu, and Lure is famous for serving up classic dishes with a unique twist. If you’re looking for fresh oysters on the half shell, this is the place. You can also enjoy chicken and grits, biscuits and gravy, grilled salmon, steak and eggs, lobster and eggs, breakfast burritos and several different waffle combos. Bring your friends and splurge on mimosa bottle service or a Bloody Mary carafe! Lure offers gorgeous waterfront views from both inside the restaurant and on their outdoor patio. 


And on Sundays, head over to The Miller House for a southern-style brunch in one of the most historic houses-turned-restaurants in Kentucky! You can eat indoors or outside on a wraparound porch in the heart of downtown Owensboro. The Miller House has a great brunch menu that offers classics like southern eggs benedict, steak and eggs, omelets and shrimp and grits, but you can also order fried catfish filets, a Fried Green Tomato BLT, top-notch salads and burgers. With a full bar inside–and one of the biggest collections of bourbon in the country–the bartenders at The Miller House make some of the best drinks in town. And here in Kentucky, we think bourbon and brunch make a pretty good pair! 


And you’ll get an incredibly unique experience at Preservation Station–a former school-turned-restaurant-and-shopping center that offers a delicious home-cooked brunch on Sundays where you’ll find famous Kentucky classics. This southern brunch menu has a bunch of local favorites, along with an all-you-can-eat buffet served on Sundays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Start off with buttermilk biscuits, sausage gravy, bacon sausage, cheesy hash brown casserole, hand-cracked scrambled eggs, chicken tenders, fried apples, homemade donuts and peach cobbler. Does it get any better than that?! Brunch is $14.99/adult and $7.99 for kids 10 and under.
