First, the huge cups of coffee were amazing, and our waitress kept them full. One note, I like a little coffee with my creamer, so it may be more economical AND ecological to have creamer in small pitchers rather than the tiny teaspoon size creamers...More

Dispite the mixed reviews we tried Charley's. It was fantastic food and great service. We had the special spear fish blackened Eggs Benedict and Loco Moco. Both dishes were well prepared and rich in flavors. We can't wait to go back again.

Not so sure I would eat at Charley's for Sushi. Appetizers, burgers, simple dishes are great though. Entertainment can be interesting as well....
