Always eat here when I bike or fish along the Greenway. Plenty of outdoor seating for covid safety. I've only had sandwiches here and they are good. Wish they had a better selection of craft beers since there are many of these in NC and...nearby VA. Will continue to have lunch here when I visit the Greenway.More

We love the outdoor seating right on the river. The food is outstanding. Loved Fish on a Bed (perfectly cooked salmon) and crab cake burger!

We just happened upon this place and what a hidden jewel it is! Great food service and atmosphere. Despite it being Winter, it was warm enough for us to eat outside. Staff was fantastic and food delicious. I had the Cool Ranch Chicken Wrap with...fries and my husband had the "Big Dog" hot dog. Very good food. I highly recommend this a a stop in Mt. Airy, NC. There is also easy access to the Granite City Trail from this spot.More

I discovered this gem of a local restaurant last spring while biking for the first time on the Granite City Greenway. If you park in Big Lots and get on the bike trial, right is a longer, flatter northern leg and left is a shorter,...slightly more hilly southern leg. At the speed I was going, it took about 38 minutes to get back to the start at Big Lots and about 17 minutes to go left from the Big Lots starting point and reach the end of the Southern loop. That trek takes you right by Chase & Charli Restaurant by the River (Ararat River), which comes up on the left on the first quarter or so of your ride. The restaurant is conveniently perched right above one of the bridges you bike over and there's a bike rack right by the trail on the path to go up to the business. In addition to the tables and bar inside, the restaurant has two seasonal outdoor dining areas which get a lot of use. The one in back offers the best view of the bike trail and river where, in addition to folks biking and walking the trail, you'll frequently see anglers in the waters of the river just below. The first day I stopped at Chase & Charli, it was bright, sunny and warm and as there were several diners and great smells wafting over the trail I decided to stop on the way back -- parking and locking my bike on the bike rack. Since it was warm, I sat out back and enjoyed a delicious grilled chicken salad w/onion petals and homemade raspberry vinaigrette and a Diet DP. I've been back twice, ordering the salad with steak and, this past Saturday on a ride, a hamburger and homemade chips. It was around 4 and the restaurant was already filling up with a variety of folks including two families with small children (they have a kids menu), a middle-aged couple clearly on a date, and some folks like me. The food is fresh and tasty and the service has always been good and friendly (including Emma, who told me Saturday she was new). Great job! Although I've gone because of biking trips on the Greenway, many local folks clearly go because of the food and not because of the nearby fishing or hiking. I'd drive from here near Kernersville to go just for the food myself sometime, it's that good and the menu has plenty of variety. Because of diet, I can't eat many sweets now but, if I could, I'd try the homemade cakes and pies like the orange cake (like a cake version of an orangesicle) I saw someone order. While I've never met them, I understand that Chase and Charli of the restaurant name are real people and brother and sister. In addition to the food, it's always a great feeling to support a family-owned and operated business.More

Great little bar and restaurant. I had crab cakes which were tender and tasty! Others at the table had flounder, shrimp and tacos. Everything was great. Good service.

This is my favorite place to enjoy a nice dinner watching the river roll by ,an occasional bike rider or jogger on the green way that runs beside the river, or even have seen a rider on horseback ride up. You never know what you...may see along with egrets or cranes. And sunset is absolutely breathtaking. You can keep up with your favorite sports team on the outside TV or enjoy a drink with friends at the firepit alongside the river. Anglers are welcome always as they are known for along with their many delicious specials From crab legs, salmon, to steaks , ribs and prim rib and some of the best burgers in town. And dont forget to say hello to the founder Todd. It was his vision to create this truly unique dining experience in Mt Airy. Cant be beat!More

Our group numbered 8 and we served quickly. The most popular selection was the big dog. I chose the burger topped with pimiento cheese. The burger was a little dry, especially with the Kaiser roll. The cheese was melted a little and kept sliding off...but it landed on the fries and I enjoyed that.More

Yes, if you eat on the deck outside. I've been there several times when people have been eating on the front deck while accompanied by their leashed canines.
