Charley's has been an institution in downtown Farmville for as long as I can remember. Located in an old warehouse with the appropriate atmosphere, the restaurant offers a full menu of mid-priced options. Service is from college kids but usually quite good. They have a great Sunday brunch. There are several good local restaurants in this charming college town but... More

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our brunch this past Easter. The food and selection was excellent on the buffet. The items were replaced promptly. One other thing, great bloody marys.

We scheduled a family gathering for a medium sized party and quickly thought what did we get ourselves into. The waiter was extremely kind, polite and trying to provide excellent service but it appeared he got no support from the kitchen. Furthermore, he had tables in all different directions within the facility and on the deck. Our food was good,... More

I am a local. I go to Charley's about once a month. Charley's has a wonderful deck overlooking the Appomatox River, great for dining if the weather permits. The food is consistently delicious and the atmosphere is relaxing. I highly recommend Charley's!

We stopped here on our way to hike High Bridge Trail. Accommodating hostess sat us at an outside table with a prime river view. Hubby's burger was perfectly prepared on a soft bun. I opted for the Green Front, a vegetarian option. Delicious eggplant, lightly breaded, was dressed with scrumptious sauteed tomatoes. The fries were crispy and plentiful. To end... More

Charleys is in the Green Front Furniture complex and turned out to be a lovely place to take a break from shopping. Lots of wood and ambience in this converted tobacco warehouse. Service was seamless and food was good (enjoyed my fried eggplant sandwich), and we look forward to trying the patio next time.

Lots of charm, great service, and the pasta Primavera is delicious! Also recommend the bacon wrapped chicken.

We had no idea that a town the size of Farmville would have waiting lines of people at many restaurants on Saturday night. When we arrived at Charley's at 7:00pm, we were told it was an hour wait so we left and discovered every other restaurant had a wait also. Live and Learn.The next day we ate lunch at Charley's.The...

The main course was ok. I had the prime rib special and it was not that flavorful, nor was it quite cooked medium rare. The baked potato and broccoli sides were adequate but not exceptional, as was the service.The portions were generous. What stood out was the dessert, They are made in house. I had a peach cheesecake that was... More

We come here often for a quick lunch. Always good and wonderful service. If you happen to get one of their toasted sandwiches get it "lightly" toasted or it is kinda hard to eat. unless you like it crunchy.
