Always pretty busy and selection is overbearing, needs to stick to a few basics and not try 50 different flavors by diluting a good original product. Service varies by who is there to wait on you, some days good some days fair, will continue to go there as it is the only shop this side of RTE 22.

I visit this place often and they do have good ice cream... However, on July 2 2015, we arrived with light on and benches full of people.. They look through the blind, see us, then turn light off and refuse to answer repeated knocks on door. This is ridiculous, when we showed up it was 9:38, they are not supposed... More

We stopped for ice cream for our kids, after hearing about this place near our hotel. The ice cream and shakes were great, but there was a long line to order. We were there on a Saturday night, which I assume is typically a busy night for them. But they seemed unprepared and only had two people working. After waiting... More

We always like to visit the local restaurants and we were pleased with this place. The staff was friendly and patient since, for this first time customer, the menu was large and a little overwhelming since we didn't know what we wanted. The ice cream was good soft serve.

Their ice cream is great, but don't forget about the food. They have reasonably priced entrees with large portions and great fries. They also have bakery items. The service can be a bit slow for food or when the ice cream part is busy.

They have been a Pittsburgh traditon for years and years. With numerous and adventurous flavors, Charlie's makes their own versions of blizzards, ice cream cakes, and other numerous frozen treats. I can not give them a five. This year, they lost their baker, who I can honestly say beat Moio's desserts in taste, quality, and price. That being said, they... More
