Ate here a few weeks ago with a friend and both of us had chicken entrees which were very good and their fret nod fresh salad bar. Fair prices, good sized portions and our server was great!

I have eaten here both before it closed and after. Food is always good, service is generally very good. Steaks and ribs are my favorite; chicken dishes often very good as well. Appetizers can be really good. Love the salad bar and the breads. Lots of interesting choices.

We know why this Charlie Brown's restaurant was closed previously... the food become horrible. It has reopened and we tried it recently. We won't be back. Everything we ordered was sub-par. Somehow all of the food had very odd flavors- offputting and not fresh. The quality of the food received seemed very low and the prices are very high for... More

This is a place that everyone can enjoy: meat eaters, fish eater, vegetarians and vegans! The service is good & the prices reasonable.

I dined here with friends and found the overall experience to be very average. Most meals come with their "famous salad bar" but I found it scaled back from past visits; they've removed a lot of proteins like roast beef, sliced chicken, and many cheeses from it...and use the space gained to showcase lots of different kinds of salad dressings....

We experienced a completely average dinner at Charlie Brown's. The food is mediocre & seems like something you'd get in a low quality cafeteria. We ordered Chicken Marsala, Prime Rib, & Stuffed Flounder... sounds good, right? Not so much, it was all completely average with the mashed potatoes being the best thing any of us had (that doesn't say much... More

The service was terrible, the managers were cursing to the employees on the floor, and we were not allowed more than 2 mixed drinks.

The food was average, at best. Nothing stood out to me. I tried the short-ribs w/ beans and onion strings. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't delicious either. Everything lacked seasoning. My friend agreed. She ordered fish and chips. The fish had a fishy smell but appeared to be fresh. She said it tasted fresh but lacked flavor. The salad... More

A visit to this Resturant bar is equivalent to a visit to Uganda. Young kids are brought into the bar area for what appear to be destructive uses. Has this Resturant or the parents of these kids ever heard of contributing to the delinquency of a minor? Apparently not. This resturant does not know it is inappropriate to use kids... More
