The food was top notch. Honestly I have burgers all the time bit I ordered the classic burger here and was blown away! I also got the sweet potato fries which were so great..not to mention the portion size. The food is literally served on a tray. Also if you get the server Darien, she is such a sweetheart and...

Service was good depending on how many people were there. If busy had to flag down a server. The BBQ was good and not overpriced.

Here on business & met colleagues for a later dinner... despite few people seated our server couldn't seem to get things going... Drinks were wrong, an order given to the next table once the entrees finally arrived... Ribs were tasty & plentiful, bring patience if you dine here...

I had 2 dinners here, both outside. First meaal was for a large group, which really overwhelmed the skimpy wait staff. My baby back ribs were a bit dry but tasty, and the hot tater salad was excellent. Second meal was in a group of 6 around a table for 4. We managed, our waiter was good, the half chicken... More

We had the ribs and the chili burger, ribs a bit overdone and clearly cooked well in advance. the chili burger was good and the chili was tasty. Service was very slow especially... More

Good flavors and amount. Prices ok. Wait staff seemed overwhelmed. Awful view of the laundry facility-tables in an alley. I had the brisket which was pretty yummy, just over a 1/3 of it was gristle and fat though. Not a quality cut. We also tried the ribs and chicken. Would eat there again. Minimal menu. Happy hour was as minimal... More

Great BBQ and lots of it! Wonderful sweet potato fries and outstanding draft beers. Staff was friendly and funny. The major redeeming feature of the T&C 'resort' undergoing a refurb.

We're frequent visitors to Town and Country Resort Hotel and we often find ourselves checking in late. We drop in to Charley's to unwind and have a bite at the bar. The barbecue is very good, although like it or not, the portions are huge. I like the burger but ask that they only use one patty. We like the... More

Tables and chairs are set up in what appears to be a service alley on the east side of the Town and Country Resort--adequate but just. BBQ is decent although ribs were overcooked and fell off of the bone. Foot long all beef hot dog was good, enough for two. Good selection of local beers.

Thank Mike R
