I've eaten here for years, its a long time place to eat in Jamestown. From the outside, actually from the inside too, you would think its kind of like a beach dive bar that serves food. You'd be wrong, the food here is excellent. On a recent visit we had a range of items off the menu and some specials, the fried food was well cooked and not overly breaded. I had the broiled striper that was encrusted with something really, really good. The steamed clams cooked just right and I thought the chowder and lobster bisque were excellent. I'd skip the "stuffy's", these seemed a little too dry and not very clamtastic, but that was the only shortcoming. I'd strongly recommend for a great, well priced meal if your in the area. Pretty good service and a full bar.

We've been to Chopmist Charlies on a number of occasions, but the last time we went we decided it would probably be our last time. The food was just not good. It was ok, but for the price, we were expecting better. The atmosphere is very casual, and the wait staff was overwhelmed on the evening we were there.

They offer a large and varied selection of great food at reasonable prices. I have eaten there several times and had steak, fish and pasta dishes and each time it was delicious. They also have a bar and good wine selection.

As the name, signage, menu indicate, this is a seafood restaurant. That said, the seafood is excellent--order anything from the sea and it will be great. That said, their non-seafood items were very disappointing. Opted to go for a chicken with salad this visit and received what appeared to be a boxed chicken patty chopped up on top. Consistency was a little better than McDonald's.
-Friendly staff
-Prompt service
-Lower-than-expected prices
-Excellent seafood
-Crummy land-food.

Chopmist is standard seashore fair. Prices are a bit lower than other nearby restaurants. Has strong points and weak points and they have changed with each visit.
Large, filling portions. Scallops were way overcooked one time. Water tasted like pool water another. However, another time everything was rich and flavorful. Could have been a change in staff. The issues were mentioned and immediately resolved.
Atmosphere is wide open, with a bar to one side, again, taking on the fishing shanty appearance with large fish on the walls, etc. Designed as a family restaurant. This allows the "ambiance" to run into the high decibels. This can also add character... We went with another couple each time and both times, despite some food prep issues, we had a great time.
If you're looking for a loud, downtown fishing village hangout type family restaurant, with large portions, but don't mind the possibility of something being just a bit off, with reasonable prices, this is your place.
