They have a fairly large menu with many choices. I ordered a lemon drop martini but it was nothing more than a regular drink with citrus vodka.The other drinks were OK. The food was good and it was reasonably priced.

You can get almost anything that you want at Charlie's. The breakfasts are very good, as are lunch and dinner. You can go simple or extravagant. They have prime rib on weekends as well as lobsters. Always check the specials. Service is good.

Good meals at fair prices and a very diverse menu. Nice dining area with large windows and natural light. We eat there often. Occasionally heavily attended and even then the experienced service team can accommodate the guests.

I have been going to Charlie's Place for a long time and I love their food! My favorite lunch is the Chicken Caesar Salad and I love the fish & chips! I have eaten many different meals there and they are all great!
