We always enjoy celebrating at this wonderful restaurant. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but we always enjoy the steaks, which are cooked to perfection.

Our family and friends have visited the Charcoal numerous times over the last 30 years. We have never been disappointed. I need to point out that on one occasion only we had a concern with a meal and management was quick to respond with a voucher for a future visit. A nice gesture. Their reputation for steaks is second to... More

We visited with my parents to celebrate a birthday. We've been coming for 40 years (yes!!) since they started in the original location over the old Hi-Way Market. So, we are faithful customers. The good: The service was excellent; our hosts paid great attention to us and our needs. The so-so: hate to say it, but the food could have... More

Steaks are the best. We go to this restaurant whenever we get to this area. Service is always wonderful and all the food is delicious.

I ordered the ribs and couldn't decide so they said I could have a little of both. They were both awesome but the one with the apple marinade had to be my absolute favourite. I may have to go back for more.

Went in for lunch on business. 2 clients and 2 of us. Service was impeccable, prompt and discreet....did not hang around listening while we were talking business. All 4 plates were perfectly prepared and we all commented on the high level of professionalism. Can't wait to go for dinner. I'll be back.

There were five of us for dinner and the dinner was almost $250. The steak was delicious and cooked perfectly. Everything was great from the mashed potatoes, vegetables and dessert. We had the small desserts for just a little something sweet. The flourless cake and cheesecake. It was just enough to satisfy us. The atmosphere was very welcoming, the washrooms... More
