It doesn't matter whether you are at Charlies for breakfast, lunch, dinner or happy hour in the lounge you won't be disappointed. Delicious food and courteous staff and servers. Charlies also hosts a wine tasting once a month paired with food that is great fun. For big groups you can make a reservation.

We gather socially twice a month, sometimes more and go to Charlies for Happy Hour. They will pull tables together for us in one or two of their smaller areas so we can sit as a group or if we have a family with children, they will do the same for us in the main restaurant. Good food! Excellent Service!... More

We accidentally ended up there looking for a downtown restaurant that starts with C. It was okay food for an okay price with okay service in an okay setting. Nothing was terrible but nothing was so good we really have ever looked to go back.

This has been a favorite of ours for many years and continues to impress us. Their menu is varied. They listen to their customers. Their appetizers during Happy Hour are ample and good.

Slow service. Decent food. The salmon salad was ok but they went a little overboard with mandarin oranges. Waiter wasn't often present in the dining room but they had 5 waiters pop out of the kitchen whenever an order came up. Walking distance to downtown attractions.

We had dinner here. Service was good and portions were large. Very easy going with what appears to be lots of local patrons. Food was OK and price was reasonable. Not really fancy dining but pleasant.

I had been told it was remodeled so decided to try it. Glad we did, as the food was excellent and way too much to eat. Extensive menu, quick service and prices are more reasonable than most places in the area. Plan on dinner there soon.

Charlies has a fantastic salad/soup bar. It is hard to choose from the menu when there is such a wonderful salad/soup bar to choose from. The menu does, however, have a great selection of food.

We have gone to Charlies many times over the years. The food is good, and service very good. It's a standard " Home Cooking" restaurant in Puyallup!
