Charlie's has been there forever. Used to be a Greek restaurant, but is now owned by an Asian family. The knotty pine lined room was full when we arrived for lunch on a Saturday which indicates that the locals love this place. They are known for their soups. We had the split pea with ham. Good sized servings at reasonable... More

Food is good. It's like going to grandmas house, soup, sandwiches, special of the day. Wholesome nothing fancy service is wonderful a lot of their waitresses have been there for many many years. It is your typical downtown restaurant .

I couldn't wait to enter! Upon entering, I was very surprised at the renovations that they must have done. The floors were amazing! The... More
