We stopped at Charlie's Diner for a first time experience. The diner is in an old house and is set up with a counter and simple tables. I had the Turkey Club on rye bread which was excellent. Others had hash, an omelette, and a tuna melt. All the food was very good and strike zone for a diner. Our... More

It's your typical diner atmosphere, fast, friendly, busy, locals and awesomely delicious diner food. My husband and I went there for breakfast and it was busy but good. The food was good and cooked to perfection! My only complaint is that they only have 1 bathroom. And they were either just understaffed or more busy than usual but the food... More

Average food served hot and fresh. Service efficient. Nothing special but not anything bad to say either. Outside seating in good weather and fun to people watch from covered porch.

They make their own breads, I tried the cinnamon bread-fantastic. Others in our party had typical breakfast items, and enjoyed them.

It was clean, good food, and a nice atmosphere. Service was excellent and it was very close to our hotel. A good one to repeat.

For a hardy, delicious breakfast of lunch any day of the week, Charlies Diner on Main street is an institution. A great array of breakfast and sandwich choices, fresh ingredients and inexpensive prices makes this place a popular spot with locals. Friendly efficient service are a plus, and be sure to get a seat on the front patio. Enjoy!

Stumbled onto Charlie's on our way to Niagara Falls. Their breakfast was great and being able to sit outside was an added bonus. My wife spotted on the menu that they make their own bread so she opted for the cinnamon and was raving about how light and good it was. Excellent servers, friendly and courteous. You'll never need to... More

Lifelong resident of the area. Eaten here many times - food and service are always great and prices are reasonable. Nice time eating out on the patio in front. 5 stars!!

I've been here a twice with friends, not my choice. Servers are terse, food is questionable. Had a bagel last time, it was stale then toasted. So tough it was impossible to finish it. Had French onion soup on first visit. Was so sick afterwards.

This is one of our go-to spots when we're in the mood for a tasty breakfast or home cooked special. The food is always plenty, the service fast, and the workers are friendly. Very reasonably priced. Keep it up!
