Awesome Sammys!!

I love their sandwiches and have never had a bad one. I have never been there for breakfast so I can't comment on that.

The Seafood Salad at Charlottes is fantastic! It is huge, and they don't skimp on the seafood. The dressing is fresh and really compliments the shrimp and crab. I can't review any of the other food because I order this salad every time. It's always good.

The sandwiches and baked beans are delicious! Salads are fantastic! Don't waste your time on breakfast...very disappointing.

Charlotte's a very popular restaurant here in Kenai. Their soups, salads, and sandwiches are all wonderful. Their house-made bread is fantastic (seriously some of the best sourdough ever). We just ordered for delivery today. Both getting our favorites (Kassy got the Mandi's Chicken Sandwich, and I, of course, went for the french dip). It's fresh, good portion size, and made... More

Stopped by for breakfast. Eggs Over Easy, bacon, toast, potatoes & OJ. Egg's were perfect except waitress put plate down with egg's hanging 1/2 off the side of the plate. Bacon was microwaved to an excruciating brittle state, unedable. Toast was hard as a rock, probably 3 or 4 days past its prime. The potatoes were good, saving the breakfast.... More

Had a Chicken Caesar sandwich with pasta salad. Not only was the presentation ridiculous (see picture) but it tasted horrible. Took two bites (had to use a knife and fork), paid the bill and left. The service was also pretty poor. Barrista stood with his elbows on the counter, eyes glued to his iPhone. The waitress was adequate, but said... More

After doing some early morning errands and shopping before the holidays, a friend of mine and I decided to do lunch. We were in Kenai and I had suggested we go to Charlottes for a sandwich and a coffee to warm up. It was a Saturday about 2 o'clock and freezing snow and wind outside. Greeted immediately by a voice... More

With the cool rainy day, it was a good time for sandwich and soup. Both were very good. The menu has many nice selections, and for the life of me, I can't remember what I had! I do remember the cup of soup was excellent. Its a popular place with the locals and we understand why: very good food, service... More

If you are visiting Kenai and looking for a good breakfast or lunch option Charlotte's would be my recommendation. They're open M- Sat and offer healthy, fresh options. Probably one of the most popular choices for lunch is the seafood salad. The smaller version is actually fairly large and is a tasty, fresh, light choice. They also have great coffee... More
