The best restaurant in Farmville, VA. Hands down but not much selection in this town of 8,000 in southside Virginia. Both bar and restaurant, it has a couple of private rooms for parties and gatherings. Several "special" nights like date night on Tuesday's, usually in the range if $28-$30 for two and includes a bottle of wine. However, if you... More

Charleys is one of those comfortable, relaxing restaurants that you wish you could go to in every city. All of the staff go out of their way to make you feel at home, while serving massive plates of delicious food, at a great value. Don't miss this place if you're ever in Farmville. It's also on the Appomattox River, with... More

By far best brunch ever! Made to order waffles with every topping you can imagine! Made to order omelettes with all the amazing toppings too! Also have a nice brunch buffet that's delightful! Price is a little high but definitely worth it!

So, this place is rated #2 in Farmville. Farmville is not a big town. It does not have an abundance of restaurants to choose from when wanting to eat something other than fast food or "big box restaurants" such as Buffalo Wild Wings, Ruby Tuesdays etc. So, I will say, it is a nice spot to hang out because of...

Great Sunday brunch if you have plenty of time. The omelet station and waffle station required a pretty long wait in each line. By the time I got a waffle , my omelet was cold. Nice atmosphere and location.

A friend and I went out and got drinks. Loved the feel of the place plus the drinks were very good. Recommend the crab dip oh and you can't beat sitting out on the deck!

Iv enjoyed brunch lunch and dinner at Charleys and the food is always Delicious. The ambiance tasteful. The staff is friendly. Sometimes there's live music. There's a bar area. There's outside dining over looking a small stream from the river. It's a very very nice place to dine.

We ate there on September 6th and the food selection was varied enough to satisfy anyone. I had the soup and sandwich and my wife had chicken salad. The food tasted great and we had plenty to eat. We were too full to eat dessert but they have a pastry chef and the desserts looked really good. My grandaughter reccomended... More

Stopped by for lunch on a Sunday after visiting a local state park. Food was ok. Service was a little slow. Serving brunch until 2:00. We had to wait about 10 minutes to order off the regular menu since we did not want brunch.
