Excellent lunch spot on the Ohio River

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... read 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.

Was in area for race weekend and decided to go here for dinner. Ordered 10 Oz ribeye and received a mangled piece of meat. It was not anything resembling a ribeye. 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 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.

Enjoy breakfast overlooking the Ohio River. Our Harley group took a ride and ate breakfast one morning. By the looks of the outdated restaurant, we weren't so sure what we were in for. This was one of the best breakfasts we all have had. Every plate at our table was nearly licked clean. My husband said the home fries were... More

Time passed this diner about 40 years ago. But along with the old decor, comes the old practice of good food, good prices, and super friendly service. Couple that with a great view of the river, and this is a spot that you'll find yourself wanting to revisit. Biscuits and gravy and coffee was $4.24. I'd call myself an expert... More

Just what a small town cafe should be. Family and old friends oriented. Standard cafe menu with a few specialties like their burgers and pies. All the sandwiches are priced between 1.99 and 5.29. Special burgers 7.99 salad bar 5.29. But the view of the river could justify doubling the prices

Carrolton is not exactly New York or Paris when it comes to fine dining, but if I wanted New York or Paris I would have gone there instead of going to Carrolton. Anyway, this place seemed to consistently have the best reviews in Carrolton. It was good. We had a hamburger and fried chicken. Both meals were good; very much... More
