The pot roast beignet and brie appetizers were delicious. The hanger steak was cooked perfectly but underseasoned. The service was very attentive without getting in the way.

Had a very nice evening at Charcoal with some friends. Service was very good and the food we picked was very good as well. Smaller menu than I would like, but we did enjoy.

Charcoal BYOB is a gem in the heart of Yardley, PA . A second floor view of the river and a bistro-like feel with highly trained staff. The grilled octopus and the ink pasta with seafood are over the top and remain our go-to dishes every visit. And save room for dessert because they are scrumptious (but large enough to share)

I've eaten at charcoal before and enjoyed it. This time however was very disappointing. My wife and I had dinner at charcoal on Valentine's Day.
My wife had an appetizer of grilled octopus that was clearly deep fried and overcooked. I had, what was listed on the menu is fried chicken, but in reality was chicken fingers. I assumed that Fried Chicken would be on the bone, but that was not the case.

The best part of dinner was the homemade bread and very good butter. It cost $5 and was worth every cent.

Charcoal rocked it tonight. Pot roast beignets, Brie toast, pasta, duck breast, polenta budino and brioche donuts all were awesome. What a great way to celebrate our anniversary! What a great way to continue the euphoria that is summed up in one short sentence — “Go Birds!”

We really enjoyed dinner. We started out with the fresh bread which was fantastic! My husband and I got a few of the small plate pastas which were delicious and perfect to share. My son ordered the hangar steak and it was cooked perfectly! Nice atmosphere! Good service!

We discovered Charcoal when our first option had a 90 minute wait. While not the most exciting menu, the place has a really nice laid back vibe and during the day would have a beautiful view of the Delaware River. I really liked the hot chicken (a signature dish) and the carrot cake was amazing. Our friends had salmon-decent, and my wife had the beef beignets. An odd combination that was pretty good.

nice casual ambiance with good tasting/creative food. we had the sourdough bread and butter, which were good but as others have indicated, we didn't understand why the outside had to be burned. we each had a different pasta that we were very pleased with and the doughnuts were amazing. our waitress wasn't particularly pleasant - i don't think she smiled once - but otherwise, we had a lovely experience. i'd definitely recommend, especially for this area.

Food was delicious! Have the octopus appetizer Which was extremely tender but could’ve used a touch more flavor. For entrées the Griggstown chicken which was unbelievable! Probably one of the best chicken dishes I’ve ever had. Also the gemelli which was yummy too. The brioche donuts are to die for! Coffee was great as well :-)
Definitely looking forward to dining here again!
