Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Cute bar and dining area. Food was good and very reasonably priced. Charm of a small town and the servers all knew the locals. A great stop for lunch on the way home from touristy Galena.

We found ourselves returning home from nearby Hanover on Friday afternoon right at lunchtime and decided to try somewhere new in the area for lunch. A quick inquiry on Trip Advisor led us to Welcome Inn a short 3 miles from our location. Elizabeth seems to be a quaint, quiet little town with a lot going on during the recent... More

For a small town this is a good place to eat as the food is good and you get a good portion and the staff are very friendly. And yes both couples agree we will eat here again when in the area

We arrived 1/2 hour before closing so some things werent available. We chose the special of the day (spaghetti) which came with the salad bar. So we wouldn't have to rush, we ate our salad from the salad bar and took the rest with us. The waitress was very friendly and at no time did we feel rushed or made... More

order the brisket in bulk if available! it is beyond delicious. It has a good old fashioned salad bar that is well kept. The soups were also very good! Didn't hear any complaints from the other tables either.

After only one visit, I can say it really is welcoming. And it's the kind of place I wish were at my corner. I'm a big fan of these small town bars with the bar on one side, and a dining room on the other. Decor nicely worn like an old comfortable pair of shoes, and lots of old woodwork.... More

We were out for a Sunday ride and decided to stop for breakfast. The Welcome Inn is conveniently located on the main thoroughfare in downtown Elizabeth, IL. The place seemed welcoming, it was very clean, and the wait staff was friendly with a menu that had a variety of selections. As much as I wanted to like the food the... More
