We had lunch at Charlie's years ago, and dinner was consistent with that first experience. The decor is in an old warehouse so it's open and sits right on a tributary of a local river. The service was excellent, and while the meal wasn't gourmet, it was filling and tasty. We started with roasted red pepper and crab soup, salads,... More

Stopped here today while on back roads trip through Virginia. Setting is charming - the bar & restrauant are part of a set of renovated mill & factory buildings. Atmosphere is relaxed - woodwork is interesting, decorations are predictable but nice. Soup & salad is $10 for a large bowl of roasted red pepper & crab soup & a side... More

Returning home from visiting relatives in the northeast, we stopped in Farmville for the night. We were tired and hungry after many hours in the car. We have eaten at the Fishin Pig (another restaurant in the area) and decided to try something different. Charley's was great. We loved the atmosphere of the place. The bar area is really cool...

Eat at Charlies! While visiting our Longwood University student for parents weekend, we strolled through downtown Farmville to visit the local shops and experience the small town feeling. We decided to try a local restaurant for dinner and immediately looked on Google to find a place and get reviews. Apparently Charlie's had a reputation for having "slow service and mediocre... More

Food and atmosphere were great. 40th HS reunion celebrated here and it was very nice. Space was secluded from other part of restaurant. Service was attentive and prompt.

Been here on a few business trips to Farmville. This time lunch and dinner in the same day. (not much else around) For lunch there was 6 of us, all but one had a sandwich, each a different one. They were ok. Dinner a bit less impressive, I had chicken breast that was described as being finished with a cheese... More

I love Charlie's! We went at lunch, it was very busy and we had a new waitress and she was overwhelmed but everyone has to learn, right? She did well for it being her second day or so. The food was, as usual, delicious! And the atmosphere was great. It's always a favorite place to visit.

I went to Charlie's Waterfront Cafe with the intent of ordering a nice dinner with my date. I ordered a simple bacon cheese burger with fries. All goes fine and well until the kitchen brought me my meal and the burger presented with bright red meat, keep in mind it was ordered to be cooked medium. Upon my examination of... More
