My Sister and I had both had chicken salad wrap. We thought we ordered chicken creaser warp. We could not figure out what was in the chicken salad but the chicken was mushy and what ever was mixed with the chicken was very thick. we both could not finish it. We mention this to the waitress and she said sorry... More

We spent a beautiful autumn day enjoying lunch on Charlie's patio. Even the dog was able to join us. The food was not fast, but it was delicious! I had the fish and chips, but it might as well have been a family meal since it was so well loved by everyone that I found myself having to protect my... More

We stopped in for a weeknight dinner to sit on the patio and river watch. We ordered the Irish smothered fries, thinking it would be a fun appetizer. Wow! They were amazing. French fries, covered in cheese sauce, corned beef, sauer kraut...it was so much better than we ever dreamed! We also tried the Mulligan stew and rib eye dinner.... More

We had to complain three times to get them to turn it down. They finally moved us to another table. There were several tables around as well. Band was way to loud and really would have been better to not here them. They may have been better off to turn it way down. The food how ever was great. Our... More

Sorry about that, the band was using a loaner PA. They couldn't get it adjusted right. We got them to turn it down once the manager talk with them. Glad you enjoyed the food, hope you will be back. More

We had a wonderful waitress. She welcomed us with a big smile--very important. The pub is decorated very nicely. It felt warm and cozy to sit, have a beverage and chat. There was very laidback entertainment and no cover charge. We had a nice evening.

For great service ask for Devan and Michele. The perfect mix of professional and fun! Can't wait to visit again for steak tips, onion rings and crunch berries (lemon cake)!
