We walked in on a Thursday at 7:30 pm - 1 other family there. Service was slow. Made drinks that never got refilled until I asked buser. The filet had an out side coating that tasted like jerky. Noodles and Alfredo were mush. Had liver and onions were almost still raw. I don't know why people rave about this place... More

Always at the top of the list to visit, laqwhen we come up here to our cabin. Make sure you know when the busy times are. They have early bird specials. Can get rather busy any given night.

Two hours wasted- bad service - got lied to about the waitress having forgotten to place our order for steak. When it never came, we asked for French onion soup, which they brought to us without the cheese melted. We waited for a additional 20 minutes for the manager to never come over and apologize but ultimately inform us through... More

Very disappointed. We had reasonable expectations, but were still totally underwhelmed. Martinis were fine, but not much atmosphere in bar. Wedge salad was fine, French onion soup OK. Chicken fried steak was weak and tasteless. $25 ribeye was tough, full of tendons, very little flavor. Nothing like an aged steak. More like a Sizzler type steak. Even the baked potato... More

I really enjoy a good rare filet and a Tanqueray martini, "dry, up, blue cheese olives". Charlie Clark's has them all. The atmosphere is a bit funky, western, the service more like a diner in Bismarck, ND, but the food was strictly New York City. Thick, tender, cooked to perfection filet, with all the extras including French Onion Soup. It... More

If you are looking for the Old West atmosphere with good food and one of the best filet mignon dinners to be had, we highly recommend Charlie Clark's.

After reading the reviews for dinner, I am glad that we went for happy hour. We had a good time, especially since it was Halloween night. We had the chili sticks as an appetizer. My wife had the vegie quesadilla, our daughter had the mini burgers and I had the best of all---the pepperoni pizza. We topped it off with... More

My mom made the best Chicken Fried Steak and Charlie Clarks can give her a run for her money. Recommended it to my sister-in-law who is not a red meat eater and she was drooling. Prime rib is good and the best comes at the end when we always order a brownie to share. This brownie is beyond good. Making... More

We were sat quickly and had a very friendly and efficient server. The wine was great and a very reasonable price. Everything was excellent tasting but my rib eye stek had too much gristle and fat. My wife liked her ribs and we both enjoyed dessert. Price was reasonable.
