Where friends meet
Our dining is on a first come, first served basis. However, if you have a large party, are planning an event, or need catering services, drop us a line and we'll hook you up. Need to have a private party? We can turn on the lights when you need us to. We have a key :-) Just Ask
100 Public Square, Carrollton, OH, United States
We're located in the heart of Carrollton, Ohio. Centrally located on the square, directly across from the County Courthouse. You can easily get to us from any area in the valley, or the world for that matter. Here's a map, but if you get lost, just give us a call and we'll tell you how to get here.
As far as we understand........ Our restaurant was opened in 1928 as an Islay's Dairy specializing in breakfast, lunch, ice cream and various other dairy products of the highest quality. It operated as such, until 1970, when Islay's ceased corporate operations and its name was changed to Archer's Restaurant after its then owners family name.
Along the line, the building has been on fire three times. One of which was on September 5, 1945 where it was very heavily damaged and re-opened by the Dever family on Friday January 4th 1946.
Much more of a detailed history to follow.
