I’m guessing at night it’s more lively. The food was decent. I had the bruschetta and the deep fried cauliflower. Given the other options around I don’t think we’d go back. The paintings inside very cool though.More

Charley's shows all the NFL games on Sunday mornings to go with a great breakfast. The service is always excellent and they let you stay and watch the whole game! Big portions, iconic place and watch your favorite team!

We checked out a few places before deciding on Charleys. It was a great night to go as it was open mic night. The entertainment was very good. The food was good. We would go back.

Not so sure I would eat at Charley's for Sushi. Appetizers, burgers, simple dishes are great though. Entertainment can be interesting as well....
