First class food and service! We return over and over again. The friendliest staff ever. Only suggestion is use the booths on right side; not the left side because those are tight.

A friend of mine and I visited the Trappist Abbey and, rather than go to a chain when we were hungry, stopped at Charlie's for lunch. It is an authentic diner that has had a room added on to it, so you can't beat the place for nostalgic ambiance. Service was attentive but the food was ordinary. I had a... More

You don't come for the food (which, to be fair, is good). You come to sit in the old carriage-style diner and hear the local guys sit at the breakfast bar and talk to the waitresses that they speak to every other day. Good value, fun holiday experience. Worth it as part of a road trip from Boston - nice... More

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. The left side of the diner is the old train car style and the right side is the newer addition with a bar and reg tables. Very good value and service and food is good.

We frequent Charlie's. We have been going for years mostly breakfast. No complaints! Always amazing. Great prices & portions, friendly prompt knowledgeable staff (most of the time) Since they added their addition, the place looks amazing! Definitely somewhere to go!

Excellent portions, great value, delicious food no matter time of day. Charlie's is growing in popularity and adding on another addition...what does that say? You can't go wrong!

Charlie's is a great little place with excellent food and friendly service. No reservations needed, just walk in and sit wherever you like. The diner is open early for breakfast and the restaurant extension added in the last few years also serves lunch and dinner. The portions are very generous - even the so called "Manageable Mouthfuls" of which there... More

My husband and I have always wanted to try it and I am so glad we did. We sat in the diner instead of the bar/grill side. We had breakfast. My husband said it was the BEST Biscuits and Gravy he ever had! I had a traditional breakfast, 2 eggs, bacon, and home fries. Also, very delicious! I told him... More
