Stopped in for a late dinner. Had the swiss mushroom burger which was good and the salad bar is always good too. Wait staff was friendly.

Have been to a couple of Charley Brown's locations in the area, and they are generally all the same. And that's not a bad thing. We've found that the food is consistently decent, prices are reasonable, and the really do have one of the best restaurant salad bars around. It may not be a gourmet meal, but for what it... More

Upon walking into the restaurant there was a strong odor of sewage. So strong that we almost walked out of the place. The interior was so cold that all the customers were asking that the a/c be turned down. Didn';t make for a pleasant comfortable dining experience. The pound of wings that I had were overcooked and dried out.

Charlie Brown's appeals to all kinds of people: the bar forsports fans, the salad bar for the health conscious or light bite eater, the restaurant for those interested in a complete meal. Food is great, service is pleasant, price is right.

Always loved Charlie Browns salad bar and was upset when they closed both restaurants near me. This is the third time we drove to East Windsor, over a half hour away and third time I left saying I love that salad bar! My husband loves the prime rib, I haven't found anything super special for an entree, good not great,... More

We recently tried CBs again after a long absence and were pleasantly surprised by the new life breathed into the restaurant after its bankruptcy in 2010. The old standards are still available - salad bar, prime rib,etc. - but so are some new dishes. Nothing fancy, but good.

Very busy but accommodating place. Excellent beer selection. NY Strip steak was well cooked and delicious. Salad bar was also very clean and well stocked and maintained.

Very Good Food, definitely recommend. The prime rib, crab cakes, and all you can eat salad can all be ordered for around $26, which was delicious. The salad bar has tons of offerings including fresh local vegetables, croutons, breads, bacon, dressings, cheeses, crispy salad toppings, etc. Delicious reasonably priced restaurant. Only problem was that the waiter was very inattentive and... More

She took our drink and appetizer orders in a timely manor.We had a potato "croquette"appetizer which was quite good. For our main courses we ordered off their... More
