Pleasant staff and quick service. My burger was good but the fries were undercooked. I was exhausted and hungry and Uncle Charlie's Bistro was exactly what I needed.

Very pleasant meal. Stopped in with Groupon to scout out this restaurant. Had wonderful server. Greek Cobb salad and club sandwich were very good and enormous. Have leftovers for tomorrow. Key lime pie was excellent! We will be back for dinner.

We have been here before and the food was great though overpriced for an entree that comes with NOTHING but a bread the size of a large roll for 3 people.

food is well prepared, interesting selection, good service. In a small college town, well off the beaten track, it can be difficult to find well a simple enjoyable meal. Uncle Charlie's provides an excellent option.

Food was yummy & plentiful. Lisa was quick to offer alternatives for our dietary needs. Her homemade desserts are amazing. Trying to figure out what wine I liked no problem, Lisa accommodated that too. Place can be hard to find but worth the adventure!

It's behind a subway and looks like nothing based on the facade. Looks are deceiving. The food was great, the service wonderful, and it's a quiet place where you can actually talk.

Stopped in for lunch to try something different. We had several appetizers and the soup or the day (crab gazpacho). Everything was perfect! The portions were large and we were stuffed. Can't wait to go back for dinner.
