Lots of charm, great service, and the pasta Primavera is delicious! Also recommend the bacon wrapped chicken.

We had no idea that a town the size of Farmville would have waiting lines of people at many restaurants on Saturday night. When we arrived at Charley's at 7:00pm, we were told it was an hour wait so we left and discovered every other restaurant had a wait also. Live and Learn.The next day we ate lunch at Charley's.The...

The main course was ok. I had the prime rib special and it was not that flavorful, nor was it quite cooked medium rare. The baked potato and broccoli sides were adequate but not exceptional, as was the service.The portions were generous. What stood out was the dessert, They are made in house. I had a peach cheesecake that was... More

We come here often for a quick lunch. Always good and wonderful service. If you happen to get one of their toasted sandwiches get it "lightly" toasted or it is kinda hard to eat. unless you like it crunchy.

We had a group of 20 motorcyclists from the tri-cities go there for lunch today. We did not know that they didn't serve from the menu until 2:00pm. Some of us had the brunch buffet and some were going to wait until we stopped at some other place. Well the food offered sucked. They charged $14.99 for this and did... More

We ate at Charley's on a Thursday evening and it so happened that Thursday evening is all-you-can-eat St. Louis style rib night. Most all-you-can-eat ribs are better fed to our canine friends than they are to humans but Charley's all-you-can-eat ribs are quite different. They are deliciously-sauced falling off-the-bone morsels. My wife had the meat loaf and it was also... More

We had lunch at Charlie's years ago, and dinner was consistent with that first experience. The decor is in an old warehouse so it's open and sits right on a tributary of a local river. The service was excellent, and while the meal wasn't gourmet, it was filling and tasty. We started with roasted red pepper and crab soup, salads,... More

Stopped here today while on back roads trip through Virginia. Setting is charming - the bar & restrauant are part of a set of renovated mill & factory buildings. Atmosphere is relaxed - woodwork is interesting, decorations are predictable but nice. Soup & salad is $10 for a large bowl of roasted red pepper & crab soup & a side... More
