We arrived by boat at the Waterside Marina, Norfolk. We wanted a place to walk to a good old fashioned breakfast. We found it! Quaint, local, extremely friendly and great food. It is about 1.5 miles from the marina, so good exercise, as well.

I came here with my 4yr old daughter. Personally I wasn't impressed with the food however, the customer service was amazing, the atmosphere was pretty chill, and my daughter had a great time. So this place is now our hangout spot.

Let me start off by saying I don't often write reviews. I am very neutral when it comes to food, so if I declare it edible, I'm going to eat it, no matter if it is the best thing I've ever tasted or the worst. (I like eating at waffle house if that puts it into perspective). My overall experience... More

The last time I went one of us got raw hash browns and the other got reconstituted potato bud mashed potatoes. Not the best in town. But very popular.

Went to Charlie's on a friend's recommendation. It is located on Granby Street, a couple of blocks from the bridge crossing the Lafayette River. On the Friday night when we were there, Amy Ferebee, a well-known local singer was performing (no cover charge!) a great variety of blues, folk, and rock, accompanied by a harmonica and other stringed instruments and...

Really cool local place. Food was good. Food service really slow on a Sunday morning at 11:00 am even though there was no wait to get in.

My family enjoyed a pizza at the 4100 Granby St Norfolk location of Charlie's. The pizza had thin crust but plenty of soft, tasty crust around the outside. Good pizza and reasonable price. Charlie's is casual, after 5pm often has entertainment, local singer songwriters, open mike night, kararoke, bathtub mimosas, etc. We'll return to try breakfast (offered all day) and... More
