    We sat in a booth not knowing that it would be tight for two 6 ft. men and two women. It was only our second time there and yes, we should have asked for a table. We didn't want to create a scene so we stayed in the booth.

  • "Still the One"
    Roadrunner
    Dined on 4/27/2014
    Charley's Other Brother is still the one "go to" restaurant in our family's opinion and has been since it opened in 1974. The restaurant offers great tasting entrees at a moderate cost. The "on tap" beer selection and the vast wine by the glass or carafe selection is also low priced, compared to the many chain restaurants in our area. My personal favorite entree is the crab crusted salmon--no restaurant in the County can compare to this deliciously prepared meal. When thinking of celebrating a birthday, this is your place. Charley's will supply an amazing vanilla cake (or chocolate) with butter cream frosting (that serves eight) for the low cost of $15.00. They even bring it to the table with candles (which they supply).

    It must have been an off night because my duck was dry and the restaurant has been around too long for this to have been simply an abbération. My wife's salmon was delicious. I'll return again too see if I'm right or wrong.

  • Not pleased with my dessert
    MsJones
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    My dessert would have topped off everything for me. It did not...it was the worst. I ordered the Hot Fudge Ice Cream with pound cake. The pound cake was old and stale...it was not soft and buttery. There was no such thing as hot fudge ice cream, it was vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup on dry pound cake. Nasty. My meal was good, I had the Virginia Ham the pineapple sauce was fantastic and the baked potato was good too. I really enjoyed the seafood bisque.

    My meal was good though they substituted a baked potato for the mashed red potatoes and skimped a little bit on my lamb dinner, wife's prime web was excellent the service was excellent though they did skimp on the vegetables in both our meals ... We had our Easter dinner there. Slightly overpriced but we had a very good time considering

    We have been dining at Charlie's for over 25 years now and it remains one of our favorites. The menu is still superb and the chef preparation of the rack of lamb (southern CA style) and prime rib were exquisite. The baked potato and Charlie's special salad were as good as ever. The drinks were okay, a bit light on the gin and vodka, but good on the kahlua. We look forward to dining there for many years in the future.

    Haven't been to Charley's in a while. New owners brought in great new chef and the food was amazing! Celebrating my mother's birthday with large group of picky eaters and everyone left happy. Service was great. Server was fun and informative. She made the experience special. Charley's is back on our "go-to" list.

    Our children (grown) and our 2 year old granddaughter are in town and we went to dinner at Charlie's. As always, the meal was great - the waitress was wonderful, very accomodating. We ate later on a Sunday, so some of the specials were out, but the food was fantastic. Some of the noise level was our granddaughter, but even she was well behaved.

  • First time Charley's Other
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 12/31/2013
    First time Charley's Other Brother, and was very satisfied with the food and service. Unfortunately, my wife and I picked the wrong time for a relaxing evening since it was New Year's Eve, and the restaurant was packed with people waiting for tables. Our reservation was for 8:15pm, got seated at 8:30pm, and finally ordered drinks and dinner around 8:45pm. Our poor waitress was really working hard servicing all the table, but in spite of all that she still maintained a very charming and fun personality (I definitely left her a large tip!) which made my wife and I feel special. I look forward to eating there again, but next time will pick a date/time that's not as hectic!

    Made reservations for new years eve.Gave our name, the hostess looked like we had two heads. Apparently they gave our table away. We were told it would be a few mins. Ok, we're pretty easy going so we head to the bar, waited for someone to acknowledge our repeated attempts to get drinks for almost 15 mins before we were sent to our table empty handed. Our waitress was clearly new and overwhelmed. She didn't smile, she didn't check on us, didn't refill our drinks without being called. Prime rib came to the table missing the au jus, it took another 10 minutes to get that and our dinners were not very hot by then. Strike 3. Food was good but the service ruined the whole experience. Poor waitress, not a good night to get thrown to the lions.

    My husband & I have been customers for 36 years. When Charley's in Kingston closed, we were thrilled to still have the Mt. Holly location. Best food of any restaurant EVER. We have booked groups for special occasions several times. My only negative was on New Year's Eve (see below). I do understand it is a very busy evening, but our dining experience was not a happy one on that occasion.

    Charlie's has been known for prime rib as long as I can remember. Still the best! Online reservation made life easy. Seated within minutes of arriving despite a very crowded house. Service fast and courteous, very good servers. Kitchen was fast even though it was very busy. Food very good and in sufficient quantity. In and out inside an hour and thoroughly satisfied.

    I've been a customer for 10 years and I have to say that for the first time the Ribs were somewhat disappointing. My wife has ordered this meal for years and for the first time ever she was not happy. The ribs are usually so tender and well prepared they fall off the bone, unfortunately not this time and it was her Birthday dinner.

    I visit Charlie's other Brother at least twice a month. Took my wife on Thanksgiving. The food was good for a holiday. Not as good as it is normally but we didn't expect it to be. The service was good even if we had to ask for a bag for our takeout boxes. The server was pleasant> All other visits the service and food have been excellent and we will continue to dine at the restaurant.

They have a large menu - should be enough to satisfy anyone. Our waitress was very pleasant, service was prompt, food was served in a timely fashion and hot. Prices are reasonable, drinks are well made....just about everything about the place was well worth future meals!

    We have been going to COB since before I had my wedding reception there 26 years ago! Apparently new owners. Dinner was very good, great, crisp, light onion rings for appetizers, New England chowder & signature salads (w/ our favorite shrimp & egg) were enjoyed by our Party of 4. Excellent prime rib, done perfectly, filet minion & of course a huge platter of chicken fingers for our teen (crisp & juicy). Service was pleasant & good. Glass of mondavi merlot was appropriately priced @ $7. Martini came in a shaker. Of course we will be back, great food & warm atmosphere. We hear they have music downstairs on the weekend now.

    Waited for 15 minutes even though we had a reservation. We sat at our table for over 2 hours only to reveive what seemed to be store bought bread, luke warm appetizers and entrees, and over-cooked vegetables. Service for food was very slow. I would not recommend going back for any reason other than listening to the always good classic rock playlist they had playing for the speakers.

    Perhaps it was the later dining time around 830, but the food was surprisingly bland. I had the prime rib and was surprised to find it under seasoned and served without au jus. It was however cooked to a perfect medium as ordered. I'm not saying I wouldn't go back, but maybe just for their Thursday night football $.50 wing special. The decor of the restaurant is a little drab in dark browns and greens, but the ambiance is rustic, not rusty. Overall though it's about the food and I was unimpressed.

    The restaurant itself is showing it's age - stained ceiling tiles, worn tables, etc. Could definitely use a refresh. Food - We found the food to be average. Two of the three steaks weren't cooked as ordered - even after sending them back. The Prime Rib was cooked properly, but lacked seasoning. Nothing special in the shrimp scampi or calamari, either. Service was good, but the waitress took a while refilling drinks and bringing back the steaks that were sent back to the kitchen.
