“Good Food ... Cheap”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

With a name like Cheap Charlie's you can't help but wonder. We'd passed by this restaurant several times before, always noting the packed parking lot, and thought we'd like to give it a try ... now we have and we'll be back for sure.
The menu options are a bit overwhelming at first, but I'm sure that a regular has no problem deciding. Loads of specials and daily options, joining their Facebook page is worthwhile just to see the specials.
Although they were packed, the wait was short, the server was quick & knowledgable, and the food was served promptly. Ordering an appetizer will leave you no room for desert as the portions are generous.
All in all a great value. Wish there was a location closer to the metro Detroit area! Well worth the drive and will be in our plans the next time we are in the Port Huron area.

“Fantastic value for your money!!!!!!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a great place to eat, you can sit at the bar or eat in the restaurant, portions are a good size, simple and prepared well.
The steak dinners are simple and cooked perfectly, choose your size plus 2 sides (veg and starch)...servers are always informed, accommodating and friendly. Decor is simple subtle country western.

“one word perfect”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

my girl friend and I come from Canada once a week to eat at cheap charlies.we wont go any where else because theres to much on menu to pick from.this place doesn't cost you a days wages like a lot of places in Canada.we can eat here for the same dollar as a fast food place but get a great meal.i guess that's why they call it cheap charlies, keep up with the great service and food ps I love tipping more then whats called for ,because of great service

“Huron version of Chili's”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We enjoyed our visit with friendly staff and fast service. Portions were almost as huge as their menu selection. It was very busy with locals. I agree with everything KTM8776 said. Would go again. Tip - plan to share the pizza!
