“A real sports bar atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

The burger there is really tasty....I've lived on the island 4 years, while I would not claim it is the absolutely best hamburger in town, it was really good! I had the Champ burger, my wife had the American salad. With mine I had their onion rings....these were very tasty, and crisp...Dee had the rosemary truffle fries....they were also very good.

Service was also very good, I'm not sure the wait staff could have been more helpful..that being said, it was so darn loud in the bar that hearing what the wait staff had to say was very, very difficult. All around us, and including us, all of the waitstaff were attentive to their customers, and were always concerned that we were well pleased.

We were there during live music. The music was a really nice feature, the singer was 'spot on' in how he sang and played some 'oldies'....he was very good. The live music was also piped out to the area for seating outside. You and your table mates could also use the 'table devices' to play various games while waiting for your food....

Like I said, it has an atmosphere of a sports bar, coupled with a lot of hanging 'lp' albums. All of this was quite fine. The web site for this restaurant has their entire menu on-line...this is great!

We definitely will return to this place...as to why we would 'only' give 4 stars instead of 5....well, it was my first experience, and it was in fact quite loud.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

By far the BEST burger and chicken sandwich in town! The Char Bar is a wonderful dessert that is homemade and makes you speechless! All we could say was. "YUM!!!"

“Gourmet Hamburgers and Live Music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Nick and Andrea, the owners of this very upscale hamburger restaurant have managed to make what is normally considered a fast food meal into a dining experience. A daily special that can be viewed online before going, a great and varied selection of named meals and the ever popular "design your own 'burger" is more than enough to satisfy even the most picky of customers. The wait service is excellent with friendly and knowledgeable staff. The popularity of this local restaurant could mean a wait for both a table and food but that is what the bar is for. Relax and enjoy the live music with your favorite adult beverage and remember, if you had wanted fast food; that is what McDonald's is for....!!!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

After eating at their "sister" restaurant a couple nights before, we decided to try Charbar. We went in for lunch one afternoon and fell in love with this place! The burgers were juicy and absolutely amazing. The rosemary truffle fries and the sweet potato tots were phenomenal. The owners of Charbar and their newest restaurant, Holy Tequila, really know what they are doing!

“Fun spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

If you want a great burger, this is worth a try. Creative menu, cold beer, and fun people watching if you sit outside. Service can be spotty, but, hey, relax and have a cold one
