I have been by here a few times and it keeps getting better and better. Love the food. Comes out piping hot. Get there early because it does fill up fast. A little expensive but worth it.

We were surprised to find this restaurant stuffed behind the Subway off the main part of town had some very good food. However, we waited for nearly an hour to get it . The owner gave us free dessert as compensation and said the wait was unusual as there was one very large party - but there were also a... More

went for the Tuesday rib night; knew from prior conversations, he had met up with a Carolina chef; we both ordered a half rack which on rib night sets you back $16 + $8; very meaty and falls off the bone; slaw is good, onion rings are better; cannot fathom a full rack, but go ahead.

Grabbed a burger to go and loved it! Good beef, bacon, cheese and onion rings. I wanted to return for a sit-down visit but couldn't.

It seemed like this was a locally popular restaurant - and there's a good reason. They have a varied menu and a full bar. We opted for the Crab Bisque with the Tenderloin Sandwich and the Chesapeake Burger. The Crab Bisque was quite good with just the slightest "bite" - similar to what we've enjoyed in Myrtle Beach but without... More

My wife and I had lunch here during a weekend getaway to Chestertown. This was our first visit. We found the food to be average, the dining room pleasant and quiet, the service so-so, and the pricing reasonable. Because of the pricing, we would return but with unenthusiastic expectations.

Consistently good , great burgers & ribs, Menu stays fairly much the same without surprises or fiddling around. with content. Good jazz on the sound system which never intrudes volume-wise. Service always good.

After being treated like dirt at The Lemon Leaf cafe, I walked out and was given a recommendation to Uncle Charlie's. It was a good recommendation - never would have found this place without good directions. Attentive service and a very tasty "Uncle Charlie's Burger" made for a pleasant lunch.

We really enjoyed our meal! My husband does not like fried seafood but we tried the fried oysters and they were really good. One of the best burgers we've ever had! Would definitely go back. It was around 2:30 and 3, so after lunch but before dinner and their were quite a few people there, always a good sign!
