This place is a hidden gem of Lexington. Fish sandwiches are really good. Hush puppies are just amazing! Clam dinner is great as well.

One of Lexington's best kept secrets. Everything is cooked fresh when you order. My favorite is the White fish special on rye with fries and the hushpuppies have a hint of jalapeno!

We got takeout from Charlies. I ordered the whitefish with hush puppies and cole slaw. The fish was good as well as the sides. Will have to try it again when back in the area.

This is an un-fancy take out restaurant. Some call it a dive but I found it to be too clean and organized to earn the title.

Carry out only - we normally order & drive it to one of the local shopping centers to eat. Whitefish sandwich is huge. Guy at the counter was impatient with us but not obnoxious. Fish is lightly battered and fried. It comes on a small...More
