CB is a local restaurant we have visited many times over the years. It has a good salad bar and a menu offering something for everyone. The food is well-prepared, and the service is good as well. Prices are reasonable. If we want to go grab a bite to eat and stay local, we can always depend on CB.

We have always enjoyed their salad bar and prime rib. They are now charging extra for salad bar. I think it is $10 for just the salad bar and $5 if you order an entree with salad bar. There is a special for weekdays. Tuesday's special is free shrimp with prime rib dinner. I had shrimp scampi. My wife had... More

CB has a great salad bar, overpriced for getting just salad bar $10.39 , free with entrée ,$3.99 with sandwiches . Steaks are good , the prime rib is good sometimes and not so good other times, never consistant. Ribs are tasty but overcooked.

Have been to a couple of Charley Brown's locations in the area, and they are generally all the same. And that's not a bad thing. We've found that the food is consistently decent, prices are reasonable, and the really do have one of the best restaurant salad bars around. It may not be a gourmet meal, but for what it... More

Upon walking into the restaurant there was a strong odor of sewage. So strong that we almost walked out of the place. The interior was so cold that all the customers were asking that the a/c be turned down. Didn';t make for a pleasant comfortable dining experience. The pound of wings that I had were overcooked and dried out.

Thank Joe T
