I love their salad bar but the rest of the menu is never outstanding and is sometimes gross. Kind of like the equivalent to Red Lobster for fish. They probably have cooks, not chefs, and work off a chain type recipe. I hate chains and this definitely has that feel. The service is also hit or miss and they seem to have a lot of turn over. There is one bus boy who has been there forever and he's great but the wait staff usually screws up the bill and are slow. Again, I go here for the salad bar. Period.

We had regularly visited Charlie Brown's Steakhouses in various places but all that were local to us have closed. We were surprised to find that the Denville location was still open. In the past we have found that the daytime service was good but slow and inconsistent at night. This time we had good evening service and we enjoyed a hamburger with sauteed onions and a cheeseburger with Swiss. We enjoyed them both but were disappointed with the sweet potato fries which were somewhat limp. We did not buy the salad bar but we have enjoyed that in the past. We often made that our meal. There are interesting salads, nice fruit and terrific bread. Our waitress told us that the chain has had financial problems but they have maintained some of the locations. She also told us that they will be renamed Charlie Brown's Grill to reflect the varied menu.

The only good thing was the salad bar.
Out waitress needed a GPS to find us.
The burger which is hard to screw up was greasy.

poor service, service was slow. Food was Ok but the portion was not very large. The best part was the cold beer.
