We get Chef Charles pizza on every visit to Elk Rapids. We've tried just about every specialty pizza - best are the Chef Charles and the Wet Burrito Pizza. Even my kids eat every bit of crust. Try the seven cheese - you can taste every single flavor.

Stopped here is the afternoon for lunch as the boys really like pizza. Place is small, neat and tidy, and the staff was friendly. The pizza is good - but too must crust for my liking. I prefer less of an outer crust and more toppings. Kids liked it. I would have to problem recommending it to others - and... More

My mouth waters at the thought of a "Chef Charles". I must admit that I have not ordered another type since we tried this specialty. I plan... More

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!

Whenever we pass by Elk Rapids, we stop by Chef Charles and get a par baked pizza to bring home with us to enjoy. This says a lot since we live down state! We always order the Chef Charles as it is addicting with it's pesto, artichoke hearts, pine nuts and feta cheese. The people who work there are very... More
