Food was average. My husband's toast was very burnt, not sure how both the cook and server found it acceptable to serve. Omelette had cheese only in half of it. Everything else was good, but was somewhat disappointed by these small issues.

A favorite spot for breakfast. Not many tables so expect to wait. The tables do turnover quickly. The people are very friendly have a free coffee dispenser outside while you are waiting. If the weather is nice, they have tables outside. Large portions so come with an appetite.

My 4 yr old son loves to sit and the counter. Good basic diner food at normal prices. Everyone is friendly, so relax and get your fill of diner fare.

Charlie's Place is a small diner on Seneca Turnpike. It's not fancy, but it's clean, and the service is friendly! You don't go for the atmosphere, but the breakfasts are very good!

Value is OK. Food is ordinary diner-like. The space is a bit crowded and interior is dated. Needs a redo.

We went to Charlie's Diner on a recommendation for a good place for Fish Fry. Sure enough the fried Haddock (served four different ways) was fantastic. Everyone I was with tried this and loved it. That being said - the rest of the meal was pretty forgettable. The clam chowder was clamless and bland, the italian wedding soup was too... More
