I would go for just the salad bar, but there are too many other expertly prepared items on the menu. A large selection of beef and seafood. Weekday lunch special is order the salad bar and get one of their regular sized burgers for $1.00. There's always friendly service.

I recently used Charlie Browns' banquet room to host my dad's 95th birthday party. We had over 30 guests there to celebrate. Ron was our waiter and he was amazing. He managed to take drink orders and serve food promptly all the while being super friendly to everyone. The room was private and spacious. The food was amazing. I would... More

Whenever I have company I bring them to Charlie Browns because I know that the food here is of excellent quality. From the time you enter the restaurant to the time you leave everything is just right. Good food and wonderful employees.

Went with my wife for a early lunch. Asked the hostess a couple of questions that I saw on the wall before being seated. The hostess knew nothing and did not want to be bothered finding out the answers to our question. She had an attitude that we were bothering her. Enough with the hostess. The salad bar was really...

This Charlie Browns is surprisingly good. Standard CB atmosphere, very fresh and extensive salad/buffet bar. The food is well prepared, ribs are outstanding. We ask for the bbq sauce on the side, Very good burgers.and steaks. Wide selection of cocktails, although like may other chains a little light on the alcohol.

We're new to the area and wanted to try Charlie Browns, which is nearby. We went on a Thursday night for the Rib special. Starting with the salad bar, it's very good. A great selection. I had the ribs, and disappointed. They weren't really a rack of ribs, but chunks of pork with a few bones, not a rack. My... More

Charlie Brown's is known for their salad bar and breads, and rightfully so. The salad bar is extensive and the 3 types of breads in the salad bar are fresh and delicious. The porterhouse pork chop was cooked to perfection and the coconut shrimp were excellent. The dinners come with two sides and portions are generous. It is good value... More
