The food was okay but not great. The service was not great at all. Waitress was friendly but never checked on us. Twice we had to go ask for things. Her tip reflected her service. We were the only people in there at about 1...More

The pulled pork sandwich was very good. Also, had a sample of the potato soup and that was excellent. They take the time to explain their sauces and offer recommendation for the day. Have also had their ribs and were very tender and moist.

This isn't just a BBQ place. Atmosphere is great, service by bartenders is attentive and friendly. The food is really good too. Someone is definitely taking pride in the way the food is prepared and what the menu offers.

I've been to Charlie Dave's BBQ more than once and I try to order something different every time. Of those visits, I’ve either liked or loved what I ordered. But I do remember one time when I didn’t. All I had to do was tell...More

I'm not sure what the other posters are talking about. We had a great time here. The beer was very cheap and they had a decent selection. The sauces were good and they had several varieties. The food was definitely pub/bar style BBQ which is...More

We tried this place 3 different times trying to find something we liked. The sauces are horrible. We've given up.
