My husband and I went to Charlie s the afternoon of 09/27/13 (to celebrate our wedding anniversary) and, trust me, had it been our first visit there - it certainly would have been our last! To start with...the dinner salad was FROZEN (when brought to the waitress attention, it was replaced with a fresh salad); we both ordered the Charlie s Platter - everything was overly seasoned and cooked too long, especially the stuffed crab (it was actually burned inside the shell). At the end of the meal, I asked for a go-cup to bring my iced tea for the ride home to Baton Rouge and was told they didn t have any (there have always been go-cups made available in the past!). After paying $60+ for a meal, the food was packed to bring home, unfortunately, even after refrigeration, it didn t improve. I will return to Charlie s...once I get the bad taste out my mouth from this visit!
Excellent food! Excellent prices! Great atmosphere! I rate Charlie s five stars! If you feel the prices are too high, you haven t eaten in the city lately or your general eating establishment is a franchise restaurant with a drive- through window; our party of three was quite impressed...the fried oysters were the best I ve had in years and generally fries are a filler item I usually leave on the plate uneaten - even the fries were outstanding! There were no complaints from any of us (you d have to be the type who would find fault with a free meal to complain about the food!): the employees, as well as the regulars were quite friendly. It was our first time at Charlies and I will guarantee you it won t be our last! Just call me a satisfied customer who plans to become a regular !
They have the best catfish I have ever had! I live in CA and visit my sister just so I can go to Charlies!! JK Tina, love ya.
They have great lunch specials and so much food, I do not think I have ever finished an entire meal.
Their onion rings are the best and plentiful. enough to share with 2-3 people easily.
Thursday nights are steak night. You get potatos, a huge steak, salad and I believe salad all for a very low price.
Cannot wait to get back to Springfield!!
This place is so good I hesitate to tell anybody about it cause it's always crowded. My wife, friends and myself have visited numerous times and have never been disappointed. We have raved about the seafood but the steaks may be even better and the appetizers, wow! All that and very good prices too. You may have to wait a little while but its worth it.
First time here. I've been told by many people over the last couple of years to try the food here and now Im glad I did. Food and service were exceptional. I was wanting to come back before I even left. Arrive early or you will be waiting a long time. (The sign of a great restaurant)
Good food, but long waits. The cooks tend to be under dressed, wearing what looks like pajamas pants and revealing tank tops. If you can get past the thought of the hygiene problems of the cooks and the long wait, you'll be ok
