Drinks are absolutely great! Service is THE WORST! Waiters and waitresses openly complain and do not want to be there. There is NO service. Wait time is extremely long and the servers priority is to get out of there. The food is also HORRIBLE! Never consistent and never cooked appropriately. Do NOT order dessert! Cheesecake sits around for weeks!! Even... More

Charlie's on the Lake uses the best fresh ingredients to offer a beautiful plate which pleases the eye, and satisfies the tummy. Their offerings are perfectly prepared, and the staff pays attention to every detail. Sitting by the lake is very nice.The patio is great in the summer.

Charlie's has the largest martini glass in town - and fills them with the best drinks around! Great way to start a meal or relax after work. And I love the half price apps Monday-Thursday. In the summer the patio is beautiful with the pond and ducks!

This is a nice restaurant with fresh seafood and specials prepared everyday. Moderately priced I've frequented this restaurant for business luncheons and the service is always good. There is never any wait whether you want to sit inside or out when the weather is nice overlooking the lake. The restaurant is big enough to handle a large lunch crowd and... More

Not sure what has happened to this place but a group of us were there in December and no one had a good dinner. This was my number one place almost weekly for many years. The food is not good and expensive !. The service by the waiter was good but the manager has all these rules now. It was... More

Seven of us gathered on a Monday evening to celebrate my granddaughter's birthday. Our server, Chris, was attentive and most thoughtful. Food was good, especially the salads. Our grandson's prime rib was excellent according to him. Several of us had delicious pasta dishes. Our granddaughter was given a piece of cheesecake to take home. We were all too full to... More

Got the lunch specials. One was a salad, dressing are all homemade but they are very watery or super oily and have little to no flavor. Not a fan, would not go back. Also the spinach under the top spinach was old and not fresh. There was even water sitting under it all. Such a nice setting with the little... More

we were in the restaurant on 9/10/16 and had the worst meal of our life.  Drinks, appetizer and salads were good but once our main dish came for my husband and I it went drastically down hill fast.  We both ordered the stuff prime rib that cost $31.00 each.  When it came out it did look good but the au...

While Charlie's kind of specializes in fish and seafood, it does offer meat choices, including a very nice prime rib. I had a hard time deciding what to order because so many things sounded so delicious. I settled on escargot as an appetizer and then another appetizer - mussels - as a main course. Both were outstanding and served with... More
