We stopped at Chef Charlie's for pizza, and it was great! This place even has a pizza for people like me who are allergic to tomatoes. The food was excellent. This is NOT your typical "pizza joint". I will certainly be back. The menu choices should be ably to satisfy anyone's taste. My choice was the Chef Charlie's Pizza. Prices... More

Small, family friendly pizza place with slices in the window and great craft sodas. Eat in or order out. Homemade, whole wheat crust with fresh and unique toppings. Number one on Anyone's list who comes back to visit! Too bad it isn't shipped!

My favorite place in ER! Grab a pizza and head over to the Library grounds or harbor for a picnic in the summer. So good!

Charles has a terrific pizza imagination; his Pazzazz Pizzas are extraordinary! My fave is the Arizona, with roma tomatoes, pesto & garlic. You can also get boring pepperoni for the kids, too ;) There are usually local kids working there, and it adds a nice hometown feel to the place.

This is a small place with a great quick food menue. The Pizzas are the best you will find anywhere. The Subs are outstanding and all very delicious. You won't be disappointed if you want a quick meal at a reasonable price.

His pizza is just off the charts good. He's so accommodating too - really good working around your dietary restrictions - you don't feel self-conscious ordering from him at all. He's a great guy, a lot of fun. Been there many years - a fixture in ER
