Another favorite during our MN visits but not the same as Prime Time Charlie's! We always enjoyed the entertainment...none now, the friendly bar staff...now only one, great drinks and that hasn't changed! We always came for the excellent prime rib and ordered that again...a good cut but a lot of fat. Flavor once carved out was excellent and done to... More

We stopped in for apps and drinks during happy hour. The ribs were smoky and delicious! Good selection of MN craft beers!

The service was OK. The waitress was good but when asked the bartender if he could turn on the TV near us, it never happened even tho it wasn't real busy. The fish sdw was lame. It was broiled and a very small pc of fish that was hidden under the lettuce. The atmosphere is good. They could use a... More

Decent spot away from it all in Breezy Point. Not great food but Ok. No more live music which was different. New owners I guess.

We walked in on a busy Friday winter afternoon at 4:30. Found a table right away. Upon entering the bartender told us the kitchen would be closed until 5:00pm. Apparently they had been slammed all day, the kitchen staff needed to take a break, because they'd been going non-stop since opening. OK, I get it - we were sympathetic and... More

This place was sold just over 2 years ago. New owners have stopped live music, karaoke, snow tubing and have jacked up prices for less than average food. The menu has been slashed from 6 pages to 2. Many of the favorites are gone.The rustic, up north feel of the log building has been ruined with poor quality prints and... More

Because we had been eating munchies most of the afternoon, we were not starving for an evening meal. Prime time was perfect for us and would be for hungry folks too. Phenomenal chicken and wild rice soup. Delicious chicken strips for kids and seniors. Same was true for spaghetti on the kid/senior menu.

My husband and I eat out almost every evening when on vacation. We had not eaten at the Primetime in 10 + years so decided to go give it a try again ! I had salmon, and my husband had their famous burger. Both were ok, nothing special to rave about. I had a Merlot and it was no good.... More

Prime Time (formerly named Charlie's) is a restaurant we have been coming to for many years. In fact, we are meeting friends there this evening. They have a broad menu, are reasonably priced, and the waitstaff is almost always efficient and friendly. But the main attraction for us is the beautiful log interior. It is exactly the ambiance we seek... More
