Has been a favorite restaurant when we looked forward to a meal on the outside patio. Eight of us arrived and were quickly seated and greeted by nice waitress. Two couples ordered two appetizers each. The other two couples each ordered an entree to share with their spouse. Only one salad per entree was okay. One small loaf of their... More

Charlie's was the "birthday boys" choice for his celebration. He and his wife are regulars. This was my first experience. There were 5 of us so we had a wide variety of entrees and appetizers. The food was amazing! Prime Rib cooked perfectly, Fish was melt in your mouth buttery, pasta to die for. Usually a salad is a salad,... More

On our anniversary (a Thursday evening), we planned to have dinner at Charlie's On The Lake, neither of us had been. At 7:30, we walked in without a reservation and we were told we would be put on a 45 minute wait list! There were tables open! For 2 people! Several people (including ourselves) left because of this. I checked... More

I have enjoyed great meals at this spot and total disappointments. This meal offered some of each. The house salad bordered on excellent. The greens and fixings were ample and well conceived but the house dressing was a total disappointment (flavorless) The special filet wrapped in bacon with crab cakes was not well received. There was more bacon than filet... More

I've lunched at this restaurant several times with friends and it never disappoints. The Almond Chicken Spinach Salad is my all-time favorite restaurant salad. Portions are so generous that they can be shared. Service is always excellent. I am so happy it is open for lunch again!!!!

This was to be a special anniversary dinner, but it sure did not go as planned. We have been to this restaurant many times, but not for about a year. Arriving at 7, we noticed that there were many empty tables - it was not as busy as in the past and something seemed a little bit off. We ordered... More

We celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary at Charlie's on the Lake in Omaha. Our server, Mark, was outstanding, and the food was excellent. We both had steak, and as everybody knows, Omaha is known for its outstanding steaks. I'd recommend Charlie's for anyone looking for a good meal in a casual environment.

Do not believe the reviews about new management. My husband and I dined at Charlie’s on 5/23/14. While waiting for a table outside, we ordered drinks at the bar. The drinks were good but we had the displeasure of listening to wait staff complain about other diners to the bartenders while we waited. This was the theme of the evening:... More

Had portebello prime rib, wife had blackened walleye, both very good, we'd go back. Try to sit on the patio by the lake, but get there before dark because they have no lights.
