We'd heard this was the place ... visited it on the way back home. Wow ... generous portions (half order of onion rings would have been plenty for 2 of us, but we ate the whole order - they were that good!), beef and turkey burgers were excellent and cooked to order. Most of the seating is outdoors (great for summer), and its a little cozy inside with just a few tables, an eating counter, and setting for 2 on the classic PacMan game console. Carryout is a big part of their business. Not only did we like it, but a steady stream of locals (tree and road crews, construction folks, etc.) rolled thru while we were there. Its down to earth decor-wise, excellent if you are in the mood for a burger or hot dog or portabella burger. I think they have a few other menu items as well (maybe even salads). Be prepared to wait a bit if there's a big group in ahead of you - but its worth it.

We had lunch at the Char-Pit on a beautiful Saturday in October. The servings were large and fresh. Our group had a cheeseburger, aloha chicken sandwich and fish & chips. There is not much seating inside, but a lot of tables outside which is great when the weather is nice.

My husband and I were starving around 2 in the afternoon. Spotted this quaint little restaurant. Outdoor picnic tables under the pines. It was packed. We ordered the big turkey burgers and fries. Fried onions, avocado, tomatoes, dressing and a huge wheat bun. Delicious and a ten napkin delight. The french fries that we ordered crisp were perfect. Great tap beer and we were stuffed. Can’t wait for another trip around the Lake to revisit.

Hadn't been in awhile...dropped after work. I had a chicken sandwich and a choc shake....both were huge. staff was friendly...service good. I'll wait for burgers and chicken to be fully cooked no problem there they are what they say...and a decent alternative to the high end restaurant in kb.
