We got married earlier in the day at Niagara Falls and were very tired and starving by the time we were headed back to our B&B in the evening. Decided to stop at Charlie's to grab dinner as we had always seen a good crowd on the screen porch and had been wanting to try it. Didn't realize it was... More

This casual restaurant is just a few blocks from the Roycroft Inn and offers a great, economical alternative for breakfast and lunch. We had breakfast there several days. Although busy, service was always prompt and courteous. Food portions were generous and a nice selection of egg alternatives with the standard ala carte fare of oatmeal, cereal, pastries were included on... More

Stopped for a late lunch on the way to Vidler's. It was warm and comforable. Our waitress was friendly and courteous and did not "hover." We both had the grilled chicken sandwich which was fresh abd tasty. We will be going back.

Home made breads, toasted, served with fresh eggs, bacon or sausage....endless coffee, friendly neighborhood atmosphere. Nothing fancy, just plain good food and service.

I live not far from Charlie's, so it's a common meeting place for casual meals with friends, neighbors, family. Service is great, food it excellent, staff attentive. They do get very busy, esp. on Sunday mornings, so be prepared to wait a little bit for a table. Outside dining is great as well.

Love Charlie's Diner . Everytime we have dined here food & service has been consistant. Love sitting on the porch spring/summer season. Have really enjoyed holiday breakfast w/Family here as they make you feel right @home. I would recommend this diner for anyone visiting the village for the first time. Price is moderate, food is very good & service is... More

Unless it's a busy time, you'll do fine here and the food is good and cheap. Great for breakfast or lunch, not so much for dinner. The service is friendly and the prices are low so it's a good basic place to stop. A local institution.
