We had a very yummy lunch when we stopped in at Charlie's Place. The servers are extremely friendly and welcoming! Our food was delivered quickly and was really good. It appeared that many of the people who dine here are locals, having a very homey atmosphere. We would highly recommend stopping by!

Fast & friendly service! Food was very good! I had B.L.T. Wrap and hubby had Bacon Cheeseburger with fries. If you are traveling and need to charge a device, they have many tables with outlets by them. So, bring your plug-in charger and charge up!

Didn't want to go down town and fight the crowd and parking. Stopped into this place, and was glad we did. Fish Chowder was the best a meal by itself
