Great tasting food and good service

My son, his girlfriend and I went for brunch on a Sunday. We had the, breakfast club, the charcoal club and a bacon andouille and cheddar omelet. Everything tasted great and the service was very friendly. Generally a good experience. It is a bit expensive for a regular place but worth the money.

Just popped in for an evening drink, so I can't judge the food, although it looked and smelled terrific, and nearby patrons certainly seemed to be enjoying their food. The service was extremely friendly and prompt. The place had an excellent, inviting atmosphere. A great experience!

Top sirloin steak was very tender and mushroom sauce was very good. Had the oysters - enjoyed the vinegar sauce it came with. Great service - very friendly and helpful in a genuine way. Mouthwash and toothpicks in washroom were also nice touches.

Went to one of my closest friend's wedding at City Hall in Kitchener, and went to Charcoal Steak House afterwards. We were situated in the Estate Room that held 80 people. The ambiance was amazing, and the place was beautiful. We had a fixed menu ranging from steak, chicken and salmon. Since my boyfriend and I are vegan, the bride... More

Superb ribs and steaks in a pleasant atmosphere. I live 100 miles away and still use any excuse to come here. Great for families, business and intimate gatherings.

The Charcoal is very classy and done well. Food is awesome and cooked to order. We did not feel rushed at all. Steak is done very well as is the sides. This is a special place to go.

This gem of a restaurant located at the far end of Kitchener is the place to go for a great lunch or a special nite with your partner. The ambiance sets the mood to truly enjoy yourself. The food is divine. The aroma when you enter the restaurant makes your mouth water. The service was excellent. The waiters always have... More
