Nice Stop for Lunch on The Appomattox RIver

This was the perfect lunch stop for my husband and I to hop off our motor cruise through FarmVille. The outdoor seating was lovely, We really enjoyed the country atmosphere on the Appomattox River. The service was friendly and attentive and the food was tasty. We will definitely stop here again... read more

In Farmville, Va. , who would have expected? Nice setting by Appomatox River. Great meal & service. Worth a visit if you're in the vicinity.

I loved the variety of food we had. My mom hasn't been to Charley's in a while and she said this was the best buffet she ever... More

With a limited choice of "nice" restaurants in Farmville we choose Charley's to celebrate our child's college graduation. I was told they had a limited menu when making the reservation. Disappointed that I wasn't told the limited menu meant nothing on the menu for under $25. Disappointed that we ordered the crab appetizer and then we were charged an additional... More

Although this restaurant sees itself as a more upscale choice in Farmville, I would describe it as serving very good pub food in an attractive setting. The restaurant has high ceilings with beams, giving it a nice, open feel. Food options are quite varied, from burgers and sandwiches to steaks and higher-end choices. The more modest choices may be good... More

Our family of 12 gathered at Charleys Waterfront Cafe yesterday (May 9) to celebrate our grandson's graduation from Longwood College. It couldn't have been a nicer occasion! We were beautifully taken care of by Carter, a lovely young server, who kept a close eye on our large party, making sure we had everything we needed. When I asked for a... More

Since Charley’s Waterfront Café is a little on the upscale side and had very good reviews here on TripAdvisor, I was expecting a memorable meal. I ordered the Crab Cake Sandwich with corn remoulade at $11.00. It came with coleslaw and a dill pickle spear. I was able to get a starch substitute with the vegetable medley of zucchini and...

Based on recommendation for the front desk at Farmville Hampton , we went for an evening meal at Charleys. The atmosphere was quiet casual. Just what weary travelers look for. Having very recently begin a strict diet, the question was --will we find appropriate selections to match our needs. YES. several items were available to meet our needs and were... More

It really is Farmville but not the game. The Classic Reuben sandwiches and Triple Decker club were very good. Nice place to stop after tough day of shopping.

The crab cake was not tasty and had a lot of filler. The chicken was dry and terrible tasting. The vegetables were over cooked. The staff was not accommodating for food allergies. For $20 a meal you would be better at Ruby Tuesdays...
