“The people who run this place will never read these reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

A national treasure. Imagine...Sitting on the bench swinging lazily away watching the sunset as a 1/2 broken radio tuned into some extinct station plays your song, your favorite song, over and over again. I think I just saw a dinosaur selling a dusty Butterfinger to a pilgrim. I love this place.

“Quirky”

We make this a regular stop-off when we bike the Burlington Bike path. Cold drinks, candy, and Charlie's great hospitality.

“Greatest hidden treasure in Burlington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Right at the junction of the Winooski River and Lake Champlain, a place to eat juicy hamburgers, rent a kayak, read a book, and enjoy good company.
