I love the food at Charlie's, but this was an embarrassing 45-minute wait for anything more than water with our friends who we brought here. Our server was clearly overwhelmed with too many tables. She been asked us to stack our dishes & silverware to...More

Chicken piccatta was excellent! Hostess must be a relative because she would not keep a job otherwise. Wait staff was great. We will be back!

Wide selection to choose from on menu. Derive is good and the food. Great place to eat. Love the oversized furniture in the parking area, great for photos.

We came in about 7:15 on a Friday night and waited 40 minutes. Well worth it! Excellent food! Probably the best chicken Parmesan I've ever had! Our server Tara was awesome, she anticipated our needs before we could even ask. Great experience!

My husband and his daughter visited this restaurant tonight. We had 3 different pasta dinners and each were excellent. Service couldn't have been better. We are vacationing from out of town and very glad we found this place.

I have dined at Charlie's numerous times, as it is my favorite in Ellijay. The locals agree with mr too. The food is delicious. Try the mussels, lasagna, eggplant parm, or the pizza you won't be dissappointed. The food is true authentic Italian!

Arrived on Friday evening 6:30 ish and had a 30 minute wait. Our waitress was real personable and a pleasure to talk to. Prices seemed fair for the area. I order the Taste of Italy. Small portion of Lasagne, a manicotti, and fettuccine Alfredo. I...More
