Down home but with a creative twist.

This place was quite the experience, from the dry humor of the owner/server (quite the character), to the sauces on the entrees. Pick a meat, pick a sauce and Whoola - a fusion of creative taste. You can bring your own wine and just a small corkage fee makes this restaurant an affordable and tasty... read more

Cello's is a lovely and unique dining experience. Excellent quality food for great value but what makes this restaurant unique is that you will feel as though you have entered someone's home for a delicious family dinner. It is a cozy, warm experience and you bring your own preferred beverage (wine or beer) with no corkage fee. Very cool. I... More

I happen to have been at this wonderful restaurant the evening this angry man embarrassed himself in front of a full restaurant. Cello's Charhouse is perhaps the most relaxing and mellow establishment around to enjoy a nice dinner for any occasion with family and friends. Because of its quaint, personal charm, it would be common sense to make a reservation,... More

Think of it as a speed trap. The locals know all about it but heaven help a tourist coming through on the very first passing. Unless you know the routine (and have booked a reservation) you might find yourself being turned away at the door, as I was with 45 minutes before stated closing time and two empty tables that...

Cello's is the kind of place you return to over and over. The menu, like the restaurant, is small. But the flavors and personalities loom large. The food exceeds anything you may get at a typical chain restaurant and on par or better with 5 star snob joints. Friendly service, reasonable prices, you can't go wrong. When they suggest reservations,... More

Cello's is a place where we celebrate our "most" important special days! It is like being with family when you are there. We laugh, we cry, we love Sue and Ellen and, of course, the food ain't too bad either!

I had my small wedding reception here and it was fabulous. Sue and Ellen are two of the kindest and most accommodating people I have ever met. From the meal planning to the decorations and even providing our wedding cake..they handled it all. You bring your own wine and beer (cork fee), which means you get to bring your favorites.... More

Open for dinner tuesday thru saturday by reservation. 6 tables seat 30 guests. Menu includes limited choices of a daily meat and a fish with specialty choice of sauces like apple and cranberry. All entrees come with same starch and daily veg. Dessert is usually a daily deal too. Owner/chef prepares dishes with care. Period 1940's patriotic decor. Located in... More

A most charming and eclectic environment...just love the feel of the place! Walk in the door and be greeted by the most fun and gracious Ellen. Food...unbelievable. Filet with horseradish cream sauce for me and a tower of eggplant for my dining partner...cheese soup with popcorn or generous, fresh salad topped with goldfish...whimsy and excellence. Sue, the chef, pops out... More

We stopped by this little restaurant because we heard they had good food and a special atmosphere but I am very, very disappointed by poor attention of staff that left the kitchen to receive us. In a very rude manner I was asked by a women if we had reservation, which my answer was not, and we were just kicked... More
