Chucks can get pretty busy on a Friday or Saturday particularly in the warmer months. Food is good, drinks are cold and the help was very attentive. Good place to grab dinner or just drinks.

Food was decent but the drinks were expensive and weak. Did not feel welcome and did not have a great vibe. There are several of ther places for food and beverages - I'd suggest going elsewhere.

Stopped here after trail riding. It was an oasis for us! Good burgers and fried fish was really good with a light batter not that real thick stuff!

We stopped here for lunch as we drove around exploring the island. The waitress who was standing at the bar when we came in didn't respond when we said hello, she came over to our table and mentioned numerous times that she just got back from vacation and didn't feel good. She was also the cook, and bartender. Our food... More

Bartender, who was also the waitress and chef was rather standoffish...almost left when she had this weird cough and acted as if we were disturbing her by stopping for lunch. seems she had enogh time to put on an over-done...

I spent a number of years living on the Keweenaw Peninsula and have a special place in my heart for down-home Yooper bars. They tend to be rustic, affordable and populated with people you can strike up a fun conversation with. Chuck's fits that mold and then some. We stopped in on a quiet Friday afternoon for a couple of... More

A neat older bar,I and my grandson ordered a fish sandwich it was one of the best ones we ever had. My husband ordered a mushroom swiss burger that also was very good. The only way you can pay is cash or debit card no credit card

There was a Founders All Day IPA banner hanging out front, so we thought we could go in and get some good Michigan Craft Beer. I asked for an All Day and the server said "we don't have that. I probably shouldn't have hung that up." Oh well, this is a typical shot and a beer joint, with locals playing... More
