Parking is plentiful, staff is friendly, food is a grade above adequate. They have different specials every night. We tried their fish once and decided to stick to the... read more

We ate at Charcoal Grill last weekend and it was really good. It's kid friendly and has a burger bar where you can put a variety of veggies on your burger. It's right on the river so in warmer months you can dine outside. On Saturday 's they have Loaded baked potato soup n it a must if you go... More

Here for Competition and didn't want to eat at the High School. The staff was friendly and it had the usually look and feel of standard fare. I was so wrong about standard the chicken was moist and juicy. The ribs were off the bone tender! The food was hot when served and the place was clean. I will eat... More

Had the brunch the breakfast food and inlet bar were pretty good. Good selection of pastries and fresh fruits. The Lunch selection were a little slim rotisserie chicken and pizza, wish there would have been at least one other selection.

Met some friends for lunch. A nice place for lunch. Not noisy. Good food and service. The chicken dumpling soup is my all-time favorite. They can also accomodate gluten free options. .

Ok, I get it, its a coal fired menu. But even the salad tastes like smoke. The food in general is ok, but everything tastes too much the same. There are much better places than this The Pizza is actually their best item

If you are looking for really great home cooked food and great service, look no further if you are anywhere near Burlington. The hamburgers, pulled pork sandwiches, salads, soups and deserts are all excellent! We stop here at least 1-2 times per month just because they make you feel welcome and the food tastes like home cooking. Their chicken dumpling... More

Went here for my birthday with husband. I had the patty melt and husband had a burger and we both had waffles fries and sodas. Burgers were overdone and dry so we used extra veggies from the salad bar and extra ketchup and mustard. Waffle fries were hot but also rather dry. Had better burgers at the Charcoal Grill in...
