They have a good variety of dinners, beef, fish, seafood, pubgrub. I've had the prime rib, several seafood dinners including baked fish, fried clams, stuffed shrimp. Enjoyed them all except the stuffed shrimp needed some seasoning. Plenty of choices for the sides as well.

I have lived in the area for 7 yrs now. I can't believe I didn't go sooner. The menu is great, the food was cooked perfect and cheaper then any other place around. Hollandaise sauce was fresh and hash crispy. Bloody Mary was delicious. New life long customers.

We stopped in for lunch and weren’t disappointed. I had the marinated steak tip wrap with hand cut fries. My boyfriend had a burger and our friend had the Turkey BLT wrap. We all agreed that our food was excellent. Our server (I wish I caught her name) was friendly and efficient; appearing when we needed her. I grew up... More

First let me qualify, the above title. Charlie's Diner really is a diner, I think, hauled in from Worcester and a wonderful piece of history. it's complete with diner style food, all day breakfast and very reasonable prices. Because of its popularity, the large nondescript addition has been added with a bar. As of this writing Charlie's is also building... More

My husband and I go here at least once a week. The food is homemade, they always have specials, the prices are great and so is the service. We have never had a bad meal here. There is a full bar if you choose to have a drink with your meal. They also offer 5 or so meals called "Manageable... More
