Veteran's day

The store handled the crowd well. We were told 20 minutes wait time and they were right on. Even with the big... read more

I noticed CB keep changing the waiters and service staff for the past 2 years. Their used to have many good staffs we know for years. Now... More

I had a special of steak and ravioli. It was interesting. The sauce was similar to marsala with mushrooms. Salad bar, fun for most people, was stocked up nicely. My white sangria was yummy. We did not have dessert.

Four of us dined at Charley's on a Tuesday evening this December. We had short ribs, prime rib, and 2 osso busco's (pork). The salad bar was fresh and plentiful. The braised short ribs were excellent; tender and delicious. The prime rib, and pork dishes were very tasty. There was enough to take some home for next-day dining. We shared... More

Charlie Brown's reopened after the chain closed some to their restaurants a few years ago. I have found that they have an excellent salad bar that has a host of interesting choices. I have stuck to ordering their meat instead of fish or chicken because this is what they do best. Their steaks and roast beef are good. They run... More
