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.

What a great small town place. I sat on the enclosed patio and had one of the best omelettes I've ever had - Italian sausage with onions and peppers and home fries mixed in. Thick slices of home made bread too. People at other tables were raving about their breakfasts too. Nice find. Will definitely return

LOVE the homemade cinnamon bread! Makes an excellent french toast. Cannot go wrong with any of the excellent things on the menu. Chicken salad and soup are all homemade and you can tell! Waitresses are great and pleasent, have a nice porch for the summer months.

Stopped at Charlie's Diner on 5-23-14 for dinner. The restaurant is very clean and I was seated right away. The beer-battered fish fry was recommended to me, so I had it. The fish was actually pretty good; the macaroni salad and the cole slaw, were OK, but not outstanding. The french fries were overdone and didn't have much taste -... More
