Good pizza with a twist. Some unusual, but good variations

Great pizza by the slice. Awesome sandwiches, salads, and pasta dishes. Wheat crust for the pizza, really good.

We frequently order pizza here to take home - get it par-baked and finish it in the oven for about 8-10 minutes. Charles's specialty pizzas are divine - in my opinion, the "regular" pizzas are just OK. Go for the Bayou Baby (spicy!), the Primo, or the Santa Fe. Seasonally the Reuben pizza is very interesting.

Pizza by the slice is very reasonable and includes a drink. The dining room is small and not really ambient. So take it home, or to the beach!

Chef Charles' has an open window to the kitchen; as you walk past the great smell of pizza hits you and draws you in. They have a great deal with 1 slice of pizza and a small soda for around $2.50. I found the crust to not have much taste but enjoyed the sauce and toppings.

My aunt and uncle have a place on Elk Lake. Every time we go there, we eat at Chef Charles' at least twice per visit. This is fantastic pizza. No, it's not fantastic pizza by Up North standards, it is truly FANTASTIC PIZZA and would stand up to any big city pizza place. Try ordering pizza and going to the park at sunset--fun time!
