Great brunch menu. The chicken & waffles was absolutely delicious and our waiter was very attentive and kept our glasses filled during the bottomless brunch! music was on point and overall enjoyed myself!

Really great to see the Bronx becoming a destination for Bronxites as well as individuals from other areas to come and eat and drink. Usually go to Little Italy on Arthur Avenue. But the South Bronx now has other great places to visit. Charlie's was a breath of fresh air. The food was outstanding as well as the service.

Went for brunch and didn't know they had a dj there. They played the best hiphop from the 90's and early 2000's. Food was good, I had the shrimp and grits and a side biscuit with honey. Everything was delicious. Biscuit could have been a bit softer because with the honey and grits on the biscuit it was still a bit hard. Other than that a nice neighborhood gem to check out. Definitely arrive early because the location can get very bad because of the bruckner and 3rd ave bridge traffic

This restaurant was amazing and catered to the needs of my sister who is in a wheelchair. The vibe, food, and drinks were amazing. The service was a bit slow, but it improved throughout the course of our meal. I do not reccommend going as soon as they open, as they were not prepared when we arrived.

So noisy could only be heard by shouting into ear of person you are dining with. Service slow but food (burgers, chicken, good. Skip the fries. Live music on sat night -jazz like - some good, some ok. Booth needed pillow to compensate for collapse of under structure. Close (five mins drive ) to Yankee stadium. So if you like bar , burgers and loud music, it's for you. Skip if you like the website pics- doesn't meet expectations.

Great food, service and live entertainment (soul band). Went for a girl's night out. Looking forward to going back for a date night. Leave children at home when planning to visit this restaurant. Prices are expected for being in the Bronx. They are kid-friendly during the day, but parents, please keep certain spots like this gem for we adults. Thank you!

Nice ambiance with some drink issues (nome of us were drinking alcohol this night) but the shrimp and chicken tacos were the BEST and our dinner choices (hen, porkchop and fish/chips) were prepared slightly different than your average but good. We trief 2 desserts and were wow'd by the strawberry shortcake but the brownie dessert was dense and the mousse was not set well (a bit gritty). Overall we would return and definitely to try the brunch.
