It's called the only game in town.. All sorts of excuses for this dinghy, dusty, and unsanitary place to eat.. Unsuspecting parents of students and furniture shoppers are the Only reason this place is still in business. The prices are outrageous for subpar food.
The only time you may want to go there is in the summer and eat a hamburger on the deck. Still expensive, but out of the dust.

I enjoyed my alfredo and veggie pasta at Charleys. We had some bread and salad with our meal, which was a nice touch. My portion was huge and I couldn't finish it all, but snacked on it a few hours later. I didn't get to experience the full atmosphere of the place since my visit was in the dead of winter, but the menu is so large that I could see going back all the time to try other items listed. The incorporation of all you can eat pasta night and other draws to get you back in for specials were also nice.

It was good. Try it out. There aren't a lot of options in Farmville, so you should certainly hit this one up if you only have 5 or so meals to have there.

This is the nice local restaurant in town and a favorite of a lot of people. After many visits we grew tired of the never changing menu and the disinterested servers. In fairness, we haven't been back for a while, so it may have improved.

Our group of sixteen travelers had a farewell dinner at Charley's, and it was superb. Our fixed menu had a complete range of selections - beef, pork ribs, salmon, chicken, vegetarian plate, and others. The Caesar salad was excellent, the 8-ounce filet mignon grilled to perfection, vegetables fresh and just crisp, the desserts magnificent and gargantuan. Everyone at the table proclaimed his/her selection as best of all.
