Home Cooking with a view of the Ohio River

This is a family style restaurant with good American home-cooked meals. Great view of the Ohio River and friendly service.

Perched on the banks of the Ohio River, the patio offers an incredible view. The restaurant itself is not as lovely. Service is very casual, at best. There seemed to be a problem in the kitchen as orders were coming out very slow. One customer approached a server inquiring about her breakfast and was told "It's coming right out", it... More

We visit Carrolton quite often, we always love to go to Welch's for breakfast, the country ham plate with potatoes never lets me down.

My wife and I spent a couple of days in the Carroll County area, and decided to try this restaurant for dinner, mainly for the nice view of the Ohio River. The service was good, and the food was fairly average diner fare. My wife had the barbeque “platter”, and I had the fish “platter”. The food was OK, but... More

The food was fantastic and so was the service. I will definitely come back. I come to Carrollton 1-2 time a year and I always eat here.

My baked potato l appeared to have been boiled as it had a yellow tint. Both rhe steak and potato had a geasy flavor. My wife and father ordered... More

A must eat kind of place. Good homecooking and down to earth staff. Hamburgers are hand pattied and best ever put in my mouth. Also the grilled tenderloin sandwich was good. Food came out very hot and fresh. Excellent fries and cole slaw. Serves breakfast all the time. You can tell the locals eat here and we love to eat... More

A small town restaurant from the past, it has a great view of the Ohio River/river traffic . It appears to have been in business many years and most patrons are locals. They gave daily specials reasonably priced, and the staff are friendly and efficient.

We stopped here for breakfast, passing through on a road trip. The service was very slow, so slow we almost left to get back on the road. But if you have the time, the view was spectacular and our food was very good.

Enjoyed dining along the river and the food is very reasonably priced. We tried the daily special which was fried chicken and two sides. The food was just OK.
