Charlie’s is quite a surprise, great Italian but also offers more including black angus steaks and seafood. The ambiance was the real surprise, very nice, especially the bar.

Consistently good food & service. Extensive menu with authentic Italian cuisine, meals made fresh to order. Plentiful portions. Can’t go wrong here, something for everyone. Nice surroundings, while also kid friendly.
