If you like diner food this is the place to check out. It does have the old diner section which I chose to sit in. It has a good menu and also lots of daily specials. I opted for one of the special, corned beef and cabbage since I have not had it in years. The corned beef dinner was... More

Ate here on our way to Dudley Ma,. Ordered the steak tips. They were good. Price was reasonable. Restaurant is decorated well and clean. Only thing that was different was that all the doors were open and the bugs were able to come in, but they were not real bad. Bathroom was clean. Easy access from the road. Service was... More

If you like meat loaf, pot roast, pork loin with gravy, etc. go to Charlie's. Home cooking for those with fond memories of mom's cooking. Your pocketbook will applaud your choice!

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.

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!
