We moved to this area 2 years ago. This is our new favorite restaurant. The food is consistent and excellent. Although I see many reviews on their breakfast I can tell you that their dinner menu is top notch. The salad is always cold and fresh. My husband and I have a difficult time deciding what to get because it... More

We love to go to Charlie's every time we visit Niantic. They have wonderful breakfasts. We frequently go for dinners and love the Pot Roast, Meatloaf, Coconut Chicken, Liver and Onions. Yes they have seafood also seeing as it is near the shore.
