The food was just average, nothing special or our of the ordinary. Really you get better at home. Service is mediocre...

The inside is very clean and it's cozy... however the food isn't anything special. They have a buffet that doesn't have much on it and the items they do have make you wish they were a little more fresh!

I am in Rome NY on business and I just wanted a decent sit down meal. Coal Yard Charlie's was perfect for that. The food was very good, service was friendly and it all was a good value. Don't expect anything fancy. This is just a nice local place to eat. When in Rome...

This place has been in Rome for so long. Where else are you going to get a decent steak in this city? But, I think many people go there just because it's tradition and not necessarily the greatest. Nice carve your own bread at the salad bar but the smallest plates I have ever seen. Many of the staff have been there for so long that I just think they lost their pep and think they will never be fired. Closed on Monday's which tends to be the day I'm in Rome the most often.

Depending on where you're seated it can get a little cramped for the claustrophobes in your party. Otherise, the food is decent enough, the steaks I've ordered have come out cooked as ordered (medium well at this establishment). Sometimes the cut can be a bit tough. Wife says the fish meals she has had have been ok. OK is just ok I guess, nothing to write home about. The salad bar is pretty good though, nice selection, and always fresh. But location wise, it's stuffed in the same aisle the wait staff has to use to deliver food and gather beverages. Their homemade bread offerings and soups are above average.
