We visited this restaurant with family on Labor Day, 4 adults and 1 child. We chose to be seated outdoors as the weather was great. We were advised by the hostess that the wait for food would be about 45 minutes, we said that that was not a problem for us as we were just going to order drinks. We... More

We stopped at this restaurant as it was a beautiful day and they have a large outdoor patio. Should have gone elsewhere. After waiting for a hostess for 5 minutes, I went to the bar to ask to be seated. After being seated we waited, waited, and waited for a server. I once again went to the bar for a... More

We live in Stillwater and never go here so decided to give it a try even tho reviews were not very good. Sat on the covered patio overlooking the parking lot but the river is beyond that. It started to rain so we were glad we did but there was a leak in the roof and it was dripping I... More

This was our lunch stop on the way to St. Croix Falls area. Fun place to sit on the porch and watch the river activity. Great lunch menu and wonderful Bloody Marys. I had the French Dip and it was incredible.

Wife and I went there for our anniversary on Saturday. It was later in the evening and not overly busy on the patio. Apparently you can drink a Nordeast inside, but you can't have one on the patio. My wife's first choice of sandwich was unavailable. We ordered our food when our initial drinks came. After a while the server... More

This was a great find. Drawn in by the vintage car show in the parking lot, I met some friends at Charlie's. Not all Irish pubs are great but this one had very good food, terrific appetizers and cold refreshments. The outside tables were perfect as the full roof offered shade and the river offered a nice view as a... More

We stopped in to do a little antique shopping on the way to Minneapolis, saw this place & figured it looked cute & was on the river so we could eat outside. Menu looked okay so we gave it a try. The "special" was a Kentucky Brown which consists of bread, some sliced meat, bacon. Open faced sandwich basically. What... More

This covered patio overlooks the lift bridge and has lots of room for lunch. We were very happy with our sandwiches, sweet potato fries and beverages. On a weekday lunch, it was not so busy and we could linger and watch the people watch the river. If ladies are looking for a shopping break check out this pub in the... More

We've been to Charlie's on a number of occasions and love to visit when we are able to sit outside on the patio and listen to a great band. We were lucky to have visited recently on an absolutely gorgeous evening this past weekend. The Irish folk music was fantastic! We also thought our server (Maddie) was excellent at her... More

Interesting how the reviews are so mixed here. My experience was very good. First time here on a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon. We walk up to hostess stand and ask for a table for 2, she informs us the kitchen is backed up and food taking up to 45 min. Seemed like an odd greeting. I noticed the 2 parties... More
