It was really dead the day my friend and I happened upon this little place. It's got the "diner" feel to it and the food and service were excellent. Park in the back walk around to the front, I think. I remember the parking being a little weird.

I just left Charlie's Diner after stopping in while passing through town. The food was outstanding and the service was also very good. It is definitely worth a stop and I will definitely return When passing through town.

We went for breakfast and the food was fine. The server did not seem to know about Gluten Free options or special diets which was a little dissapointing. We can generally determine what is safe, but if the restaurant doesn't know the tend to add toast or croutons to things. Aside from that there was not much to write about.... More

I'm a sucker for a diner. Some of the best restaurant food can be found in the mom and pop establishments in our country. And Charlie's doesn't disappoint. Other than the fact that the restaurant is not housed in a classic diner car from the early 1900's (that would add another star, if it were possible), Charlie's is what one... More

Went here based on the recommendation of the hotel clerk to get a great hot breakfast. There was a 15 minute wait due to this spot being one of the hottest in town. Once we were seated, the wait staff was responsive and our breakfast was served quickly and was hot.
