After a day of local mountain attractions- Wyah Bald, waterfall hikes and a couple beers at Lazy Hiker we wanted some pizza. The place was packed but they got us in although not in the main dining room with the live music. No issues with the service and the pizza was good. We ordered 2 medium pies and took a... More

This was a huge disappointment. We have always enjoyed Chris and Charlies for great pizza, beer, service and entertainment on weekends. We went tonight with friends, and it took forever for John (worst server ever) to get our order. And then after getting our order, it took about 20 minutes to get our beer, and then another 20 minutes to... More

With bits of trash, napkins and other things on the floor, but it may have been busy prior to our visit and... More

This is definitely not a place to eat a good pizza or chicken wings for that matter. I guess people just come to drink

My wife and I come here for the pizza.They have some unique blends you don't find elsewhere. As a real estate broker I would not be afraid to bring a client that likes pizza. They have this Pear and Chicken pizza they do that is our favorite. Atmosphere, well, it's a pizza joint. What do you expect? Fine dining it's... More

Some friends like the pizza..I don't Some think it is great, I don't. We go out for variety and service, not attitude and being ignored I tried. It's... More

Excellent food. And service. Would recommend anyone to go. On the weekends they have a live band room for dancing. Easy to find also. Many different types of pizza.

Omg, we sent our garlic bread back 3 times, stale, no garlic flavor. Our pasta dishes were awful. Red sauce tasted like it came out of a can of spaghetti o"s . My fiancé spaghetti made him sick all night and next day. I took one bite of mine and couldn't finish it. I did eat the chicken that was... More

The orders come fast and never fail to please. We like variety but keep going back to Chris & Charlie's. The grinder is my favorite sub and all pizzas are top notch but somewhat thin on ingredients. We have also enjoyed the music on Friday's & Saturday's.
