We were in town for a meeting and used Trip Advisor for advise. The perky waitress made us feel at home. As we entered we saw a lot of wonderful looking desserts, especially the pies. The sign out front said BEST FISH FRY IN TOWN so one guest ordered that and another ordered fried chicken, while I went for the... More

Nice little diner with a country type setting inside. I had basted eggs, delicious, fresh Rye toast and mashed potatoes. I wasn't interested in home fries so I asked for mashed to substitute. The answer: Sure ! A simple gesture like that goes a long way with me. The service was quick and Shannon, the waitress, was sweet and laughed... More

The place is not a diner but a restaurant. It's typical Western New York Greek food and average at best. The place can be noisy at times. We were a party of 4 adults and 3 children. We were seated promptly. The food came out in 3 different stages, with a least 3-5 minutes in between. Some of us were... More

Wonderful for breakfast, pie, and other diner meals. Friday fish frys. Milkshakes. An East Aurora classic and stomping ground.

Husband and I stopped for lunch @2:00pm. Not super busy a few days after Christmas. Seated quickly, waitress was very unfriendly. Ordered two sandwiches and a cup of soup. Waited 15 minutes, soup came out and right behind it the sandwiches. Never asked if everything was ok nor if we needed anything else. Place is known for there pies but... More

Just happened on Charlie's Diner when we were in the area. It's a great little quaint place to have lunch. Food was made to perfection. Really enjoyed it, and will be back again.

We were greeted by a friendly staff as we walked in the door. We could seat ourselves and did in very cushy seats. The lunch menu is quite eclectic. Lots of burger alternatives, sandwiches and big sandwiches including clubs, a couple of melts, and both turkey or beef reubens. I had the tuna melt. It came with fries which I... More

We didn't really know what to expect when we went to Charlie's. We entered in the front onto the porch..keep in mind this is a house converted into a restaurant, and the stairs are quite steep. I have trouble with balance, so it was a little difficult for me, especially with people entering and exiting at the same time. We... More
