    Meeting friends before they move out of state! A little of a wait for our food! The food was cold when we received it! My friend did not eat hers and took it home. For the price we should expect hot food!

    Chuck’s has quite a few Cajun inspired dishes on the menu. My friend enjoyed her chicken fried steak, I think it was. It looked very good. The cheese curds were delicious! My baked potato was good and I also enjoyed my coleslaw. I think Chuck’s has good food. I’ve been there more than a few times.

    My brother and I go on the regular. We also go on Sundays for football. The food is always great, the staff is always great, and there are plenty of tvs so you can watch the game from almost any angle.

    Had been wanting to get back after COVID and finally found opportunity. Front patio is perfect and LOVE the brunch! Pumpkin donuts and Cajun eggs Benedict along with fun cocktails! My favorite part was our waitress Shena. When we couldn’t get the wifi to get Daniel Tiger on to entertain my 2.5 yo so we could eat our meal in peace- she tried to help trouble shoot and when it didn’t work LET US USE HER OWN CELL AND LOGGED US INTO HER ACCOUNT TO ACCESS. She stated she knows how it is she has 3 kids of her own and she wanted me to enjoy my birthday brunch. If that isn’t above and voting service I don’t know what is!!

    My hubby and I had better tasting crawfish end of April while in CO. Crawfish at Chucks were too bland, not enough of Cajun spice. The butter which came with crawfish was tastier.

    We were seated quickly. We booked through open table and informed it there was a birthday in our party. No acknowledgment of it through out the meal. Our server was less then attentive, my spouses and sons drink went with out being refilled. The food was less then impressive, bland, serving size small. It seemed like we were interested in any appetizers or alcohol we didn’t get great service. But the food really cemented it wasn’t good. In the past the restaurant would be busy on a Sunday evening and it was pretty empty.
