4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 NEW

We met our family here during restaurant week, so you know we got a good deal. But Charley's had more options than many restaurants for their specials, so we opted to try it. The red pepper crab soup was worth going back for a repeat only days later (We did take out for lunch later in the week). I had... More

When you walk in, you feel comfortable right off the bat. Their food is amazing! I had the chicken strips after I heard they are (hand)wet-battered, the way they should be. Even the dipping sauces are made from scratch. The staff is warm and freindly, and certainly attentive. Warm atmosphere, cool people, hot, delicious food.

Charley's is the best restaurant in Lynchburg to celebrate a birthday or anniversary and cover a wide variety of tastes with local charm. From steak to fish, appetizer to dessert, everything is well prepared. Service is outstanding as well. I enjoyed dinner here so much that I had an event and used them to cater. They were 20% below my... More

I live in Florida and have enjoyed Charley's Every time I come to town for 30 years. Food is consistently delicious and the prices are very reasonable. Bar atmosphere is excellent. Great place to enjoy a meal or hang out with friends. Highly recommend.

The one thing you can count on for Charleys is the consistancy of the food and sevice. This restaurant has been in lynchburg for a long time. It's a very popular watering hole and eatery. I don't eat there often but when I do the food and service are always great.

We went here several times during a recent visit. The food was good, cooked well, the servers were friendly and helpful. A mixup in orders was handled quickly when brought to their attention although many restaurants would have comped either a drink or the meal after bringing the wrong entre. The decor was comfortable.

We recently had a dinner for a large group in the private dining room. The staff was attentive, the food was excellent and everyone had a great time. I would recommend this restaurant.

Its pretty funny to see the son (rkpjr) of the owner on here boasting about how grand this place is. I don't agree with that. This is supposed to be a site for customers to let other customers know their experience. So please ignore rkpjrs comment. He's just defending his daddy.

Charley's has been there for years, on Graves Mill Road, and consistenly serves really outstanding seafood and steaks and a few pasta dishes. Sides are always up to par, and portions are hearty, but the star is the deserts. This place can handle big crowds and still maintain quality. It is a little out of the way, but well worth... More

We consider Charleys, located on Old Graves Mill Road in Lynchburg, VA, to be one of the better restaurants in Lynchburg. What we like at Charleys is the wide variety of excellent menu items at reasonable prices. A favorite dinner combination is the sea scallops appetizer served together with the reasonably priced baked salmon or crab cake listed on the... More
