We found this gem when our usual stop was closed for the holiday. We have the seafood fettuccine, cowboy sirloin, and sea scallops. All were very good and cooked perfectly. Sarah was an excellent server, very attentive and gave us great suggestions.

The meal was good and a good view of Lake Mitchell. I had eaten around Cadillac many times but this was the first time at Charlies. The place is divided into 3 areas so the restaurant area was quiet and had the view.

We come here after a round of golf at the nearby Cadillac Country Club. The staff is always friendly and the menu offers a variety of options....the dessert menu especially. After dinner, it's always fun to swing by the bar area for an after-dinner drink.

On the patio there are several gliders. It’s very relaxing to slowly go back and forth. The patio has a view of the lake and small boats. I think the menu is fairly standard fare but on each visit everything was well prepared. I had...More

Nice little place, we’re here a little off season and it was rainy so it wasn’t very busy. Overlooks the lake. Our group had soup, salads and sandwiches and everything was good. Dressing on the flank steak salad was amazing.
