Went there to eat on our last day in Branson for dinner. Had chopped sirloin and my husband had regular sirloin. It was cooked to our taste and whole meal was good. Reasonable pricing. Waitress was friendly and quick service. They also had a lady going around and singing country songs for tips. Would return on next trip.

first night in town, tired and hungry after a day of travel. Special blinking on the roadside sign.... all you can eat catfish and ribs. Looked good, sounded good. The catfish was the size of a pencil covered in breading, it was dry and tasteless. The ribs weren't any better, terrible taste to them. The service was slow and bad,... More

We used to frequent Charlie's years ago and it was very good. We hadn't been in a while and decided to give it a try again, boy were we disappointed! I ordered the quesadilla salad and it was just ok, my husband ordered the 12 oz New York strip medium cook, with a baked potato... He cut into the steak... More

We went there hungry. The special was ribs and catfish. All you can eat. Service was poor, to say the least. However the ribs has a strong taste of what seemed like BBQ fuel. Certainly tainted. The catfish were two skinny straps in batter. Better than the ribs but nothing special. Very slow service. Waited 20 mins at the end... More

We pulled in on a whim after seeing a sign on the strip that said $6.99 steak lunch special. We thought it was going to be a dive, but it was pretty darn good!! We had a little card that they give you at the welcome centres, so we got a free blooming onion that was massive. Three of us... More

We arrived at 11:10 AM and soon realized that we were about 8 hours early. This place is popular for the evening crowd. It was very empty for noon. But the food was excellent. I had the brisket and my wife had the catfish. Both plate had extremely generous portions and were expertly prepared. The sweet potato fries could of... More

I have always enjoyed Charlie's in Forsyth for their ambience, friendliness, and consistently good food. However, on my most recent visit with a friend they really let me down. I ordered the BBQ Brisket dinner. It was sliced very thin, and was coated with a gravy type sauce. The meat was mostly fat and it was hard to to pick... More

We enjoyed eating on the deck and watching the helicopter (okay, it was a bit noisy on take offs and landings, but not overly bothersome). Our food was fairly priced, plentiful and well prepared. Wish we had discovered Charlies a couple days earlier.

We arrived at a mostly vacant restaurant, we had to wait to be seated, we were asked not to sit in the empty tables, although there were plenty, we had to wait in some to vacate a table being used, the waitress was spot on, she made jokes, tried to compensate for the hostess, overall I can't say I was...
