Good food and generous portions. Great haddock chowder and lobster bisque. Forget the hype of the tourist traps. A local told us about Charlie's and he was right. My only complaint is that I didn't think the wait staff was overly attentive. Had to go to counter to ask for refills and check. But I would definitely go back and I recommend it to others. Nice surprise after being tired of getting ripped off and feeling disappointed at many other restaurants lately.

Stopped in here for breakfast on 6/15/13 and loved the food! Had that cozy atmosphere that a small town would have. Prices were great as was the staff!

First time in the area, we passed by at 2 PM. Seeing the parking lot was full, we pulled in. What a find! Charlie's is a great little place with good quality food at very reasonable prices. The wait staff was very pleasant and accomodating (putting tables together for us) and keeping drinks and coffee cups full. We were in town for a wedding and beside the above described lunch, we had breakfast there 3 mornings and enjoyed each visit.

This little place has fantastic food, prices & friendly service. We loved everything we ordered. The fried clams, lobster bisque and shrimp are so good you'll wish you could camp out in the parking lot!

Although we eat here whenever in area to have fish, soups, and hamburgers, make sure to leave space dor desert! The apple, blueberry pies are wonderful with real homemade crusts! The grapenut pudding is also tasty!
