“Five star food, limited ambiance, double check your bill”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

The food is excellent. Worthy of a much more expensive restaurant (and even then impressive). It has an imaginative menu without being over the top. There is a back room that is quiet, so bring your romance with you. There is no view and when we saw the outside (and admittedly, the inside) we began to question the validity of the reference there. However, when we saw the menu, our hopes soared. They were exceeded when we got the actual food. Despite the lack of ambiance, I'd still have given this place five stars if the waitress hadn't attempted to rip us off. On the first check, she wrote an amount three dollars higher than the total on the top and circled it. After assuming it was an innocent mistake and giving her my credit card nonetheless, we were presented with a credit card slip that had had a beer added on in haste to bring the credit card amount up to the amount of the original check. Sure, it was only three bucks, but it made me wonder how often this happens. We informed the manager, so I'm not sure if there is still a problem. In any case, go, enjoy, and hopefully you'll be able to give this place the five stars it truly deserves.

“Amazing food; don't let the bar appearance fool you!”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

We stayed at a hotel across the street and kept hearing how good the food was at Chuck's. We needed a quick meal and couldn't stop raving about how fresh, and flavorful the food was. Great value, family owned, and Chuck is very attentive and accommodating. Dont let the bar appearance outside fool you. Wonderful experience!

“Fabulous Food, Great Bar!”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

I expected it to be good as I'd heard good reviews already....I was pleasantly surprised at how much better than good it was!! I've eaten there many times since (thank you Chuck for my expanding waist line!). I love the bar!! How cozy and one of my favorite aspects is that you can sit and chat with customers across the bar. Kudos to the management for making this a positively great new addition to the beach!

“Excellent food for a good price!”
Reviewed May 15, 2012 via mobile

What a surprise! Expected hamburger joint with a name of Chuck's Last Stand. While they have a burger they have so much more. Clam chowder thick and creamy with big chunks of clams. Gumbo delicious with just right amount of spice and plenty of chicken and sausage. And don't forget the Volcano Spring Rolls which was highly recommended by Mike and rightfully so. Can't wait to go back.

“Good food, comfortable!”
Reviewed May 12, 2012 via mobile

Owning a restaurant back in Illinois we are always anxious to see what we come across. Excellent cream of mushroom soup , clam chowder. We miss tvs but Chuck told us he is not into that, strickly food. Thats why i couldnt give a ***** in the overall rating. We ate and left, not a place to hang out!
