I have been to Charley's 4 times within the past year and unfortunately, I can't give you a good overview of the menu. I had a repeat order every time. The crew at Charley's has a pasta twist on a classic Jambalaya and usually it...More

We didn't have reservations but they slipped us in. The atmosphere was quiet and welcoming. We had appitizers, entrees, and creme brulee. Food was tasty and excellently prepared. Will go back.

Most everything on the menu is great. Awesome burgers and pasta dishes. The Courdon Blue dish on rice is my usual go-to. If you've never been there it's worth a stroll around the establishment and Opera Hall upstairs even if you're not going for dinner.

Had chicken roulade. Vegetables, rice and sauce were impeccable. Service good. Chicken bruschetta was also delicious. Best meal I've had in Watertown in 2 years. I feel guilty that we haven't eaten here lately. We'll be back soon

Ate at Charley's for our 30th anniversary. We enjoyed our supper very much. Both pasta dishes were delicious, and so were the frozen margaritas.

I want to love this place. I want this place to succeed. But time and time again, we come away disappointed. We most recently visited on a Saturday night. There were 10 of us total, and we had made reservations ahead of time. There was...More

Charley's at the Goss reminds me of a quaint Italian restaurant...in Italy. The food is American, but the beautiful brick work and the small, semi private tables are a great choice for any occasion. I really like Charley's for anniversary of birthday dinners. Even though...More

Tried Charley's as it as one of the few places my boyfriend and I hadn't eaten in Watertown. Service was rather slow for only 1 other table than ours occupied. The food is good but overpriced for what is offered and amount of food recieved....More
