We had a prime rib dinner. The service was excellent the entire evening. The meal was cooked perfectly and was served with an excellent salad and desert.

My family and I have been going to Cheap Charlie's for years. They have always been able to accommodate our family whether it was 2 or 20 of us. Service is always gods and everyone is very attentive to us. The food is always delicious and arrives quickly.

If you want a good meal you should give Cheap Charlie's a try. The menu is extensive - something for everyone and the food is nicely prepared. Our Miata club ate there this evening - nine people and everyone enjoyed their meals. The service was good with a nice selection of beers.

Food is of good value. Nothing fancy but a fair price for a good meal with everyone super friendly-My husband and I go there for dinner at least once a month and always enjoy the experience.

It's not fancy, but it's comfortable and friendly. Fish fry on Friday are wonderful and fairly priced. Prime rib on the weekends is delicious. Service is always prompt and friendly. I have been eating there for over 20years and recentlydined there with my extended family over the 4th of July. Everyone enjoyed the venue and food. Try it when you... More

I spend many Friday nights here enjoying their 'before 6' special fish fry. I prefer the beer-battered and it isn't a tiny piece, for sure. Their salads are fresh with many dressing options. One of their specialities is a shrimp cocktail to die for-----4 GIANT shrimp, fresh and clean and a delicious cocktail sauce. This alone is worth the drive!... More

Was told by a friend we have been missing out on a hidden gem. Friday night dinner at Cheap Charlies was all about the Prime Rib. Served as real Prime Rib should be served, WITH THE BONES IN. We were not disappointed ! ! Well worth the trip to Bloomfield for this "rare" treat.

The food was good, but average. The waitress seemed efficient but uninterested. When you walk in the restaurant everyone at the bar and tables cranes their neck to stare as if to say, "what are you doing here"? It is obviously for locals only. We felt out of place. I had the fish fry which was haddock of lesser quality.... More

Ended up being our go to place. We came down late on Thursday and had prime rib at 8pm. It was very good and huge portion. Went thru the weekend and had a couple bad experiences in Canandaigua. Our last dinner we went back here and didn't disapoint.
