Nice atmosphere. Our server was very efficient. Would like to return when we can eat on the deck overlooking the scenery (weather permitting).

We were a group of 8 but we're quickly seated and served. Food was excellent and hot. Our servers were experienced and accurate.

Great location and service but, otherwise the food isn't that great and it's expensive. My chicken parm came out with watery sauce and the crab dip was pretty mediocre.

The red pepper crab soup is absolutely killer!! Beers are cold and the service is second to none.

This was such a pleasant meal. We had the fish basket and both fish and fried were really good. View over the ocean while eating made it all taste even better. The service was good too.

Came to Farmville to shop at the furniture stores and my wife and I decided to eat before our 2 1/2 hour drive home.Charles Waterfront Cafe was across from one of the furniture warehouses so we went in.Seating was immediate for a Saturday at 4:45 and it is a very clean rustic decor.The menu was not extensive, but I am sure it is the smaller "COVID" menu but had the basic burgers, salads, steaks and sea food. Also a good selection of beers and wines.Service was quick and we shared an appetizer of crab dip. The portions were very large, more than two people could eat. The crab dip is outstanding!!! I highly recommend it.We ordered, to share, a Cobb salad. They were happy to split the salad so we each had our own plate and dressing.The Cobb salad was excellent, one of the best we have ever had. The chicken was hot and the bacon bits crisp and the cold parts were cold. Very delicious.The wait staff was attentive but not annoying. Drinks were refilled quickly.If you are in Farmville you must eat here!

Visiting Farmville, decided to eat at Charley's. I ordered the Bacon BBQ sandwich and not goid, extremely greasy. My daughters got a crab cake sandwich and a rueben and loved it. Nice selection of beer and wine, & Servers were attentive and helpful. Just stir clear of the BBQ. :)

We enjoyed our meal out on the deck. Everyone had on masks going in and out of restaurant. Food delicious. My issue was that the hostess was not wearing a mask and she sometimes delivered food or drinks to customers.

what a disappointment. Taken out for my birthday, ordered a cheddar burger with bacon. No condiments, nor asked if everything was okay. Won't be back until full menu is offered and Rona is over. if ever

This was our first time here. It was a nice surprise as we were looking for somewhere to dine in. The food was very good and we had a great waitress. We will go back someday.

Probably the best lunch spot in Farmvile right off the high bridge trail. Water front deck fining doesn't get better. The historic and sleepy town is a throw back gem along with the unique family biking haven. Charley's has great ambience and friendly service. On a hot summer day and between a few hours of biking this doesn't get better.

Seafood dip was delicious. Good American fare in an old warehouse setting. Service has always been great and food timely.

They are on a limited Menu and did not serve what we normally order. We drove 45 minutes for a few specific menu items. Still the staff was attentive and friendly.Food was good, fresh so overall it was still a good experience but I guess we should have called before we made the trip.


Make sure you sit on the deck. Just beautiful. Lunch menu was good. Evening menu looked fabulous. Will have to come back for it!
