Fantastic Staff and Cuisine!
Visited Charlotte's for Easter 2013 - cuisine was excellent! Our reservation was late in the day (last seating available); despite this fact, Charlotte's personnel was very warm and accomodating as we arrived and throughout the evening. Additionally, the staff honored impromptu requests for the Fisherman's seafood platter and fried calamari rings for both my husband and me even those neither of these items were listed on the "Easter menu"! Our son order the veal parmesan and was very pleased as well. We thank Charlotte's for a wonderful, memorable Easter!

Our party of seven was promptly
Our party of seven was promptly seated in a private room. We were celebrating a birthday. An accordian player visited out table to play "Happy Birthday." The staff was very efficient and attentive. The food was very good with a wide variety of menu items from which to choose. Everyone enjoyed their meal and, as the portions are generous, there was plenty to take home. All around this was a very good dining experience and we will return again.

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Charlotte's. We usually go there for our Anniversary every year! Crab Cakes and Salmon dinners were excellent and there was enough to take home for the next day. Our waitress was new but her mentor helped her out and she did a great job! Overall, it was a pleasant evening at Charlotte's.

First time... not the last
Dropped by Charlotte's for the first time on Mother's Day. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Of course, the big draw is the food, and it did not disappoint. While the menu was more limited for the holiday, the quality of the food was excellent and the portion sizes were also worth the money. Mom had a shrimp cocktail that she enjoyed a lot, and jumbo fried shrimp that were larger than any I've seen outside of a fresh seafood shop, cooked to perfection. I had an order of freshly breaded mozza sticks that were HUGE, and a tasty chicken parmesan entree that was well-cooked and had the right amount of gravy and cheese. Great ambiance. We will most certainly be back to try the regular menu.

Bring back the rack of lamb please.

I love Charlotte's and always
I love Charlotte's and always give them a great review. However, this last time the owner actually challenged me over my interpretation of my filet being medium or medium rare. I was totally shocked to be questioned over how I thought my steak was prepared. I thought this was very poor customer service. They brought another but after but after the attitude I received, who knows if they did something to it in the kitchen before bringing it out. Other than this occurrence, we had a great time. My Dad enjoyed his oysters and my husband enjoyed his ravioli. Oh I forgot, the apple cobbler was more like oatmeal soup with ice cream on top. Not our usual experience, but we will definitely go back as the wasn't the norm.

Always a Gem
There's always a sense of personal attention that I receive as soon as I walk in the door at Charlotte's. I like that in a restaurant, especially when it comes with a classic feel. The mussels were great.

Definitely a local gem of a restaurant, the food was very good and the service was nice. Casual, laid back atmosphere, but nice enough for a special occasion. Their crab cakes were excellent. Lots to pick from on the menu.

Brought my brother to Charlotte's for his first visit ever. My brother has dietary limitations and the kitchen was very accommodating for his dining choices. The crab imperial and tilapia special were excellent. Would also highly recommend the strawberries romanoff for dessert. Had a wonderful time. The piano accompaniment during dinner is also very enjoyable. Highly recommend dining at this neighborhood gem.

old world charm
If you are tired in the same old same old from the franchise restaurants that are now around, try some elegance and style, not to mention great food and affordable prices, and go to Charlottes. This is by far our favorite and never dissappoints.

Huge savory Prime Rib
If you love Prime rib this is your place to go. They have two huge cuts Queen or King. Unless you are on an eating binge go with the Queen it is huge along with a salad and a side for $22 you might be able to share a dessert. Wait staff is attentive and Friendly.

Never fails to please.
Charlotte's is that neighborhood restaurant that bills itself as "The Best Kept Secret in Delaware County." It lives up to that billing. Relatively close to home, boasting good food at moderate prices, and a staff that goes out of their way to satisfy the customer, this frequent diner is never disappointed when eating here. From clams and oysters on the half-shell, escargot, snapper soup, two types of crab cakes, to their whole Bronzino - Greek style, prime rib and pasta dishes, this is an outstanding value served in a quiet, elegant atmosphere. Their menu includes entrees you only expect to find in Center City restaurants, without the hustle-bustle of Center City. It is an oasis, even in the suburbs.

Always great food!
We enjoyed Charlotte's for a birthday dinner on Saturday. The food is great - especially the seafood. The scallops, whether broiled or wrapped in bacon, are worth trying!

Took a small group for dinner on Saturday night. The Bang Bang shrimp was wonderful! Stuffed mushrooms were also a hit. The extensive menu met everyone's desires. Food was plentiful. Would definitely go back.

Charlotte's is our favorite place to eat. We have been there many times and hope to continue to do so. Our children also held our 50th wedding anniversary part there for about 45 people. The best of all times.

Better seafood than at the shore!
First time dining here, and now the seasonal pumpkin crab cakes will now be an annual must have. Best crab imperial around, and the lobster tail was cooked to perfection as well. Everything from the salads to dessert was delicious. Prices were reasonable as well. Will definitely return to introduce others!

Warm and friendly
My husband and I went here for the first time after driving past and wondering about it for years. We had 8:00pm reservations but got there early so we decided to have cocktails and apps at the bar. The bartender Bill was fantastic. We really enjoyed talking with him. The restaurant is family run and it shows. The employees/owners we so friendly and welcoming. We ended up staying at the bar for our entrees. The oysters were fantastic. My broiled seafood combination was ok, but I'm am looking forward to returning to try some of the other seafood choices.

Best Mussels ever! Decor =negative
The food and service here were exemplary. I just couldn't get past the decor which is 1970s schmaltz.

Family owners really make this place special. The chowder was incredible, and the clams casino was creatively wonderful. Very friendly service, and the finest food we've eaten in the area. A+!
