My husband I went to Charlies for our 1 year anniversary. We were 1 of 2 tables in the room, it was quiet and our server was very attentive. The Steak and Duck was the best either of us have ever had.

Went here with 2 friends. Was really disappointed. They never brought my side salad but did charge me for it and it took an hour and 20 min to get our food once we ordered. The food was so bland. The menu was nothing impressive. We won't be back.

The food was flavorless, had to actually hunt down the waitress in the bar to get some horseradish to put on the prime rib which had no flavor. Would NOT recommend. Boxed au gratin potatoes taste better than what was served.

I planned a lunch for my best friend's bachelorette party at Charlie's because it's her favorite place in Stillwater. It took 10 minutes to take our drink order, 15 min to get our drinks and 45 min to pay our bill. The server was nice but very green and was not fit to handle a party of 12. While half of the party is in the service industry and are more likely to let things go, we were extremely disappointed. My friend and I had a reuben and I believe it to be a hard sandwich to get wrong. It came out cold, without much sauerkraut and very little thousand island. We had to send the brisket back and remove from the bill because it was almost all fat. They were out of the prime rib sandwich, even though it was only 1pm.

The walleye in my dinner was good. The potatoes were drenched in gravy which was not mentioned on the menu and the green beans were undercooked. Waitress was not very knowledgeable about the entrees.

We wanted a place to go that was on the river so we choose Charlie's. When we got there there was a wedding going on so we had to walk through the wedding to get to the hostess stand and it did take awhile for someone to come and help us. Once seated on the covered patio we were happy. Had some good crabcakes and 2 different kinds of sandwiches. Food was really good and it was reasonably priced. The service was a bit on the slow side because of the wedding but we will return again.

The steak was extremely spiced with peppercorns. The service was very slow. The cheese plate was good and the stew was very good.

I had the Fruits de Mer (seafood pasta) and while it tasted delicious, I spent hours in the bathroom that night. To confirm that it wasn't just me, I asked my friend who dined with me if she had any side effects of having a bite of my dish. She also had some stomach trouble. No one else in our party had any problems.

Saturday breakfast location was great (convenient, right on the river), but the service was slow, orders were wrong, refills on coffee were slow, just not a great experience (aside from location)

The food and atmosphere were mediocre at best. They weren't bad, but not exactly the fine dining we were hoping for. The waitress didn't come around much either. It seems to have a lot of potential, but missed the mark.
