Decent consistant food, good steaks, good pasta, good seafood. Great selection of starters. Fried oysters are great. Also, a great shrimp and grits.

Relaxed, comfortable dining in a historic Main Street building. Food is reasonably priced and selection is good. Great place for a weekend steak!

This about the only full service restaurant in Town. Good service. Very good food at reasonable prices. We don't get there as often as I would like. Has a small full service bar but the place is closed on Sundays due to pressure from the local Baptists so on Sunday's you need to drive to nearby Waxhaw, NC, a town... More

This is my favorite place in Lancaster to eat. There's not another place like this for miles! I really enjoy the service and the food! My typical dish is the southwestern chicken wrap. It never disappoints and always leaves you feeling full!

Open M-Forum for lunch, Thursday thru Saturday for evening dining. Ken is an excellent chef with a good staff. Food and drink are pricey compared to most small town places, but it is not real bad.

I don't get to Lancaster too often, but the in-laws invited the wife and I out to supper at Charley's tonight. The outside of the building doesn't stand out, but once inside the first thing that grabs your attention is the baby grand piano just inside the entrance way. Sadly, nobody was playing it while we were there. We had... More

Quaint restaurant in downtown Lancaster. Pimento burger was delicious as was the Spinach Crab Salad. The wait staff kept my ice tea glass full. Our server Brandi was delightful.
