We were greeted immediately taken to our Table which was set up and adorned with Birthday paraphernalia. Wow! They were expecting us and made us feel special. Service was incredible and They should be applauded for their dedication. The piano playing in the background was most soothing and added an additional level of sophistication. Lighting was perfection. It is a great place to slow down and appreciate dinner and great company.

Went there for anniversary dinner. It was a little louder than I expected due to the bar area and sports playing on the TVs. I didnt think they would even have TVs. We picked Charley G because we thought it would be a more quiet, romantic, setting, and we never get to go anywhere quiet with the kids in tow.
Overall it was nice and the food was A+. Only negative was the noise, but we had a wonderful time and I would definitely recommend Charley Gs for dinner.

Food, atmosphere outstanding. Service terrible. Had to ask for our waiter on three separate occasions. They bused the table and left. Our group wanted coffee and dessert and had to wait until we finally got someone to stop to get our waiter over to order. Then had to do the same to get the check. Maybe they were having a bad day. I would still recommend because the food is outstanding.

Took a client there this week and he was "wowed" by the food and the service. The staff is most attentive yet not obtrusive. They truly "get it". Charley G's is consistently great based on my more than 25 years of going there.

Nice place. Had our table ready. Had an anniversary card signed by staff on table with glitter hearts all over the table. That was unexpected and very much appreciated. Service was top notch. A bit loud for my old ears but we sat next to each other so we could hear each other well. Fun night. Glad we did it! Thanks for a great meal.
