We should have known what our experience at this restaurant was going to be like when we arrived to find half of “Charlie’s” sign lights burned out. The rest of the experience was no brighter. The ambience and decor of the dining room were abysmal....More

My husband and I had dinner here last evening. After reading all these great reviews I feel like we were at a completely different restaurant. First off, half the sign is burned out in front. Not a great first impression. Our server was very sweet...More

Really great place to eat. Many pricey dishes but good food, reasonable offerings, and service. I had the sirloin special tonight with twice baked potatoes. Very good peanut butter/banana cheesecake.

SO glad I made a reservation for Saturday dinner. Would have had a wait otherwise. Despite the busy night and a sign on the door seeking full time wait staff, our service was good - and pleasant. The food was a mixed bag. I still...More

Used to be a good restaurant, but food was just ordinary, service kind of slow. Perhaps management/owners changed, but just not up to par. Would not recommend, And, Raspberry jam does NOT go with salmon. (Who thought of that??)
