I don't live in the area, but anytime I go hiking up here, I always go into this restaurant to eat. never anything different. Always nice staff, good food and good prices. It seems that these three are consistent. Have had pasta, steak, salads, and lately been having chicken francese. All of these were very good. Took a friend in... More

Went on a Sunday to watch football and hang with friends. Great place, good food and drink. Didn't eat in restaurant, just stayed in bar area. You can be loud with friends and root for your team. Overall, great place.

I love the variety of the menu. Met 2 other couples and we had fun ordering different things and sharing appetizers! Dinner we all had different things from a complete fish dinner to Shepard's Pie.

We went here for a delicious dinner. They have Irish dishes, specials of the day, sandwiches, delicious desserts, and great Margaritas. It is very cozy and the wait staff if very friendly. Thanks for a great night,

We always went to a place very close to them, but decided to try this place for a change. Atmosphere.. When you walk in there is a bar separate from the dining area to the right, dining to the left, and I believe an upstairs. Very casual dining. The dining room is wide open with tables. Not one time have... More

Bar has a very warm and inviting atmosphere. 3 or 4 large screen TVs for the games, signs and saying and knick knacks cover the walls. A nice, warm functioning fireplace is in the bar and used in the colder weather. Nice neighborhood and homey feeling to the place. Restaurant is spacious and clean. Upstairs banquet role is available for... More

Character's is a great old-time bar with great service and good food. Their burgers are fantastic and the pizzas are also very good. I also highly recommend the French Onion Soup, the mushrooms and fried calamari appetizers, and the steak sandwich. The bartenders are very friendly (Jimmy, Gabe and Dennis) and go out of their way to make you feel... More

The food and service are very nice here. The bar service and area are a little tight, but still pretty nice. Some of the food menu items are a bit overpriced. However, overall I have found a comforting consistency here. This restaurant sits smack in the middle of what I believe to be one of the most depressing towns in... More
