We found this great little diner down by the river in the historic part of Carrollton. Nice atmosphere inside and the food was good. Service was ok and we waited a little long to get our food. Staff was friendly.

This restaurant is located near the river. The prime rib dinner was fantastic and reasonably priced. The wings were equally as good. The service was wonderful.

We stopped in for lunch on way to General Butler State Park. The roast beef, mashed potatoes, and green beans was the $7.99 special. It was fantastic and the portion was huge. We did manage to split the Dutch apple pie with ice cream. YUM!!

Kitchen is slow as hell. Don't be in a hurry. Going down hill bad. Owner sets at the bar and never helps.
