“Great Breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Stopped in here for breakfast on 6/15/13 and loved the food! Had that cozy atmosphere that a small town would have. Prices were great as was the staff!

“Great find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

First time in the area, we passed by at 2 PM. Seeing the parking lot was full, we pulled in. What a find! Charlie's is a great little place with good quality food at very reasonable prices. The wait staff was very pleasant and accomodating (putting tables together for us) and keeping drinks and coffee cups full. We were in town for a wedding and beside the above described lunch, we had breakfast there 3 mornings and enjoyed each visit.

“What a treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This little place has fantastic food, prices & friendly service. We loved everything we ordered. The fried clams, lobster bisque and shrimp are so good you'll wish you could camp out in the parking lot!

“Local home food with the best fruit pies!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Although we eat here whenever in area to have fish, soups, and hamburgers, make sure to leave space dor desert! The apple, blueberry pies are wonderful with real homemade crusts! The grapenut pudding is also tasty!

“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The service here is nothing special. They could care less if you are there or not, making zero effort to connect with you. The food is okay and the coffee is poor quality. Better off stopping at McDonald's for coffee first. There are a lot of other breakfast options in close proximity that blow this place out of the water. Try Red Skiff in Rockport or Sugar Magnolias in Gloucester. Better food, and service.
