My wife and I stayed here at the Water Street Inn for 2 days for our Anniversary. We were treated to a full breakfast each morning in our room price. This was not your everyday cheap breakfast but all very good choices that were almost too large of helpings to eat it all. All the food was excellent and the... More

I do not enjoy leaving a bad review, but Charlie's earned it. We ate there on St Patrick's Day, mostly there to hear Irish music in the Pub. We were a few minutes early for our 7pm reservation, and were seated promptly. Things went down hill from there. The whole place was busy due to St Patrick's Day, but the... More

A little confusing but this place has got the pub and then the restaurant for more "fine dining". We went in to the restaurant for an early Valentines Day dinner and we were the only ones there!! The two dinning rooms are very grand and I would imagine you'd feel underdressed wearing jeans. Our waiter was great! Super funny and... More

HORRIBLE service! I have never left a bad comment or rating about anyplace before on Trip Advisor until now. My husband and I were initially told that we could just seat ourselves, so we know the blonde server saw us; however, she never acknowledged us again for the next 20 minutes after we sat ourselves at the least dirty table...

We were shopping nearby and decided to give Charlie's a try. It is a definite pub atmosphere and is near the water. The food was OK, we had fish and chips and chicken salad. The service was pretty slow, one customer had to wave the waiter down to pay his check. There are probably better choices unless you are there... More

My Sister and I had both had chicken salad wrap. We thought we ordered chicken creaser warp. We could not figure out what was in the chicken salad but the chicken was mushy and what ever was mixed with the chicken was very thick. we both could not finish it. We mention this to the waitress and she said sorry... More

We spent a beautiful autumn day enjoying lunch on Charlie's patio. Even the dog was able to join us. The food was not fast, but it was delicious! I had the fish and chips, but it might as well have been a family meal since it was so well loved by everyone that I found myself having to protect my... More

We stopped in for a weeknight dinner to sit on the patio and river watch. We ordered the Irish smothered fries, thinking it would be a fun appetizer. Wow! They were amazing. French fries, covered in cheese sauce, corned beef, sauer kraut...it was so much better than we ever dreamed! We also tried the Mulligan stew and rib eye dinner.... More
