Recommended from several people for good, comfort food. Had pork tenderloin that was tasty enough that "it didn't even need mustard". I had the homemade beef stew and it was good, although I pulled out a couple chunks of fat. Another in our party had the oven baked onion soup and had rave reviews of it. The other person in...

It's a pretty decent place. A little on the higher priced side, but not horrible. My family and I usually meet here for dinner as its the middle meeting place for both of us. A decent salad bar, and you get a lot of food.

Good food and great variety for a small town. We had breakfast and dinner and both meals were great with plenty of food. Small town appeal yet big city tastes.

We were trying to skip lunch because we had dinner reservations for later in the day. We found ourselves in Elizabeth at an antique mall when hunger hit. We walked in to the Welcome Inn and split a turkey wrap to hold us over. It was awesome, crispy, filling and fast! The service was excellent as well.

Al and Loulie are both great chefs and excellent with the local clientele. I would recommend reservations on busy summer weekends for Friday and Saturday night if you have a group over 4 people. Lorraine, the weekend bartender, is a dear. The staff includes Al and Loulie's family, as well as many locals. Do not hesitate to ask Al for... More

We were passing through town and stopped in. The prices are extremely reasonable. The portions were large enough that we both took away boxes for later. It was tasty.

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.
