Nice comfortable restaurant worth a visit

Stopped in for a quick lunch on a very hot day. Comfortable A/C was welcomed. Rustic interior with a great display of Jim Beam ceramic vehicles. Fresh food, clean environment. I enjoyed a foot long hot-dog when I expected something smaller. Nice surprise.

We took my Mom there for dinner and the food was below average. I guess it's true things change, sometimes it's not for the best.

I have been here a few times and there is nothing even halfway healthy on the menu.. and anything I have ordered has not been good.. the service is terrible, food not good.. I have no idea how they have been in business so long.. It has a long standing older crowd which may be way.. I would never suggest... More

Our visits here have always been good. Burgers soups and sandwiches are awesome. Never a bad time. Out of town just a bit.

My husband and I like to go the the Charcoal Chef periodically. Sometimes we order "take out". I believe more than 90% of the time, we order the NY Strip Steak with a baked potato. It's always good and simple. We enjoy it. When we feel like having a pre-dinner cocktail, we go to the restaurant and eat there, instead... More

This is a great place to eat! The food was excellent and our server was very attentive & courteous. I hadn't been there in the last 15 or so years, since I moved from the area, so this was a nice treat. Will plan on going back again on our next trip up.

This is a very nice little country restaurant. Unpretentious and quaint with just plan good cooking! I love the deep-fried Cornish hen (I know, I know fried foo is bad... but it's REALLY good). I also really like the grilled trout - two whole fish with skin - (and that it's really healthy eating). We are local and we drop... More

When we moved to Woodbury a few months ago we knew absolutely nothing about the town. After a long day of moving furniture and boxes we needed some food. I checked out tripadvisor and decided that we'd grab some burgers at Charcoal Chef since it was close by and had great reviews. We almost walked out the moment we stepped... More

The office voted on the Charcoal Chef to celebrate the recent National Hamburger Day. We'd never been there before, but we all thought a charcoal-broiled burger was appropriate for the occasion. Overall, this is a pretty cool restaurant. I liked the country-themed decor and the simplicity of everything. The burgers were very good, as well as the sides. I thought... More
