Charley's has been in business in Lynchburg since 09/24/1980-almost 36 years! That in itself says a lot. The owners are very active in the business and you may be surprised by them visiting your table and asking for your comments.

Came on a rainy night as I did not want to go far so decided on Charley's. It was fine - nothing outstanding but the food was good and pretty much in line with the pricing. The attitude of the staff could sure have been better but maybe the rainy night had something to do with it as the tables... More

It's been a while since I went to this restaurant and I don't know why I don't go more often. A great place for fine food.

The decor was not very inviting and had a cafeteria feel to it, but the food was really, really good. This is certainly a place that once you taste the food and experience the good service, you quickly forget that the decor is very bland. I enjoyed the ribs and they fell off the bone and soaked in a sauce... More

We went to Charley's to listen to one of our favorite local bands, Jenny and the B-Side Rockers, last week and enjoyed the experience thoroughly as we always do. The food is excellent, the wine and drinks are good, and the music is great. They could do with some more dance space, but otherwise it's a great place to go.

Charleys takes a little effort to get to. Major exit off the highway but then you've got to be smart to know go right at the stop sign, pass the auto dealer, follow the signs past that point. Because it's a little out of the way it's never crowded on the patio or inside. The food is typical bar type... More

Our family attended a Birthday party here for dinner. The service was good and everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. Nothing really stood out in a good way or bad. They do offer a private room for special occasions which is really nice.

Recently spent a month in Lynchburg, and frequented Charley's at least 3 times weekly. Food and service was as excellent as it has continued to be for 35 years. Prices are reasonable and service is excellent. Great job Rob. Keep up the great job and Merry Christmas!

Have been here many times and the food is just average. Service is very good with attentive wait staff and prices also average for the quality of food. Nothing I have had here is really anything to reccomend to anyone.
