Charlie’s Bar and Grill is a hidden Gem. Their food is amazing!!! The menu offers wonderful selection from traditional pub fare to amazing salads. It was a great stop after a long flight from Florida.

First time back since Covid. Some disappointing things made me give them only three stars. Service was so-so, as I had to ask for a refill. She was not worth 20%, even though I gave it to her. First of all, I had a 1/2...off coupon for one entree with the purchase of another. They said they are not honoring them right now(which is what brought us in. Then why not pull the coupon off the church bulletins). We each ordered the 8oz sizzler. They were great. It also came with potatoes and garlic bread(both very good). Lastly it comes with a veggie, which were crunchy cold green beans ( we left them). The entree comes with a salad, which was a big disappointment. Lettuce, two little cukes, a couple of onions, and a couple of black olives. No tomatoes. Even a red pepper on it would have made the salad visually appealing. Well I’m guessing it will be another year before I try going back. There are several other good restaurants on the same general area that I know won’t disappoint me.More

Usually the walleye is fresh and a good sized fillet. Neither was the case on my last visit. It was at most a 4 oz fillet and did not taste fresh.

Food is good as is the service. Had the smelt basket which is huge. I would have given it a five star except the fries were greasy. Beer is cold and Charlie stops by your table to make sure all is well. Groupon has a...BOGO coupon and they happily take it.More

We go to Charlie's often. They have multiple daily specials and a fully stocked bar! We are always greeted with a smile and the service is quick. The staff is fun and friendly, and they will accommodate special requests or substitutions. Try the ranch dressing...- it's homemade!More

Been meaning to stop here for months now. Finally got the chance. A really nice menu with a great variety. The four if us each got the kielbasa dinner. It came with two good size slices of meat, sour kraut, red potatoes, green beans, horseradish,...a nice salad and a slice of sourdough bread. All for around $13.00. Looking at other meals as they came by, everything looks great. I can't wait to come back next week to try something different.More

The warm welcome at the door and the friendliness of the server makes it. Except for the tomato bisque, which was awesome, the food was not great. The sizzler was not tasty and was a little tough and the green beans were undercooked. Our friends...go there so we will likely go back when we are in town, but probably wouldn't otherwise.More

I had the best walleye dinner I ever had. A caper lemon butter pan fried large portion. My guest had the wing dings and I couldn't quit eating them myself. If you get the sangria.. you will be so happy. A must stop whenever I...go to Grand RapidsMore

Good local restaurant with a pretty good sized menu to please most people. Have been for lunch and dinner and had good service for both. A touch off the main drag but worth it.
