Classic Brookside bar now has great food. The ownership change has made kitchen 100% better. I was there Friday and I had the best cajun chicken sandwich I have ever had. My daughter had the chicken tenders and after getting the leftovers boxed up ate them as soon as we got home.

Good service and appetizer menu and nice meals. Food very tasty. Beers cold! Tried the shrimp tacos and the burgers tonight. Everyone was satisfied. Tap IPA beers were the bomb.

Well have not been in Charlie Hooper's for a long time. With that said, my day off, I went in specific for a Cheeseburger and fries. I was not disappointed. Very good, cooked Medium the way I ask. The fries are cut nicely and not over done. Had a dinner salad first. Good, blue cheese dressing and not your average... More

It is a neighborhood bar and grill that we have gone to for 25 plus years. Always great food, good service and atmosphere is fun. They also have a great happy hour that ends at 7 p.m. when most end at 6 p.m.

Love this place, food is great and reasonably priced. I go there to watch any sports games especially the Royals! But get there early if you want a seat! It's open seating majority of the time so come on in and take a seat. The waitresses are great and super friendly. Monday's are half of burgers and they are great!... More

I hadn't been to Charlie Hooper's in years. Back in the late 80s it was the only place to get import and microbrew beers from the coast. (The first microbrew in regional area opened 1989). I was visiting the place on Trivia night (Wed nights held in the back room). The place really looked pretty much the same as I... More

My husband and I tried Charlie Hooper's for the first time during KC Restaurant Week and were very pleased. I had the salmon, the lighter option on the KCRW menu, and found it very flavorful and filling. The Vanilla Cheesecake was delicious and paired well with the beer I picked from the pages and pages of options. Would recommend for... More
