My husband and I always stop at Charley's when we are in town. Don't expect East Coast swank because this is a farm town. The steak is HUGE and always well cooked, and prepared the way you want it. The fish is hit or miss, but no one goes here for that. The home town atmosphere is very typical of... More

Great little restaurant and bar. We initially stopped for an adult beverage and the drinks were very good at a good price. We decided to eat there too and it was good food at a good price!

I have been eating at Charley's for many years but we hadn't eaten there in a while so we decided to stop. Charley's hasn't changed much over the years, so don't expect anything fancy. The delicious salad bar had lots of variety. My stuffed shrimp special ($14) was yummy. My husband really enjoyed his steak. Our waitress was friendly and... More

Had dinner with two friends. Each of us had steak. They had the plate covering ribeye. I had the special, a New York strip. Wow it was 1 1/4 inch thick and cooked perfectly. I'll go back next time I'm in town.

Great place!! Went there while on hunting trip with my son and friends. Best bar in South Dakota. Brook, the owner, is super bartender. Must try the "mind eraser". This place typifies all of the charm and friendliness of Chamberlain, SD. So good we went back 2nd night. This is a must stop place.

My sister ordered a BLT and chips & the chips she got seemed as if they were the ends of a bag, the bacon tasted old, & the toast was slightly burnt. I ordered a smothered burrito, and to my surprise was actually really good. Our waitress, (a young blonde lady) did an amazing job & was very nice.

Didn't cook our food the way we ordered it and when we complained the staff was rude and there was no mention of a discount. so we left without eating and just paid the bill. will never go there again!!!

We ate here on the recommendation of locals. Beware! Locals said, "You have to order the broiled Walleye fish. It is the best fish I've ever eaten!" It was unseasoned, uncooked, rubbery, too many bones, and mostly cold. We love eating where the locals eat, but what a disappointment! Guess we should have tried the steak like other reviewers had.... More

Great place to eat! After being on the river all day with Allen's guide service it was nice to stop here for a nice cooked meal and cold beverage. Highly recommend stopping here if you are hungry and in town!
