Charlie's on Prior
Best tacos ever!
I had the philly cheese steak omelette. The steak was virtually non existent. I wouldn't recommend this item.
Excellent customer service!
Everything was wonderful when we were there with our kids for Sunday brunch, but the dining room was FREEZING COLD! We were, literally, shivering and our kids wearing their winter parkas throughout the meal. My husband--who is a big guy and never feels cold--was even complaining. We couldn't feel our feet by halfway through the meal. Otherwise, it was a lovely experience! As great as the setting/service/food is, we would not return unless the temperature issue were to be resolved. Hopefully, it's not typically a problem. :)
Great service good prices great atmosphere
The staff is wonderful!! Started with cocktails and appetizers downstairs looking over the lake. Then went upstairs for dinner. If you are in the area treat yourself. On the way there you are going by houses on the lake and we questioned if we were in the right place and then you come to Charlie’s. A must visit.
Great food and service and view of the lake. We'll go back!
Always a treat to boat with friends on Prior Lake and be able to dock and have a beverage with food.
Food okay. Brownie for dessert was tiny, certainly not homemade, dry with a tad of ice cream. Not worth it.
How do you run of wine glasses? Mushroom burger was overdone and had about 3 mushrooms on it
Beautiful table outside overlooking the lake! Great service, food and drink!
Great find. The location is right off the lake and has wonderful views. Cocktail selections are great, along with beer and wine. Food is good and has some unique offerings accompanying them. Service was perfect for the occasion and was spot on to our requests. The establishment can be a little noisy with large parties present.
I was very surprised and extremely pleased that they were able to seat us outside on the upper deck. The wait staff was very accommodating and very efficient. The food was delicious. I went there for lunch because I couldn’t get an evening reservation. It was well worth lunch.
I am from Michigan. When I come here to visit my daughter, Charlie’s on Prior is always my first choice in dining. Love that giant pretzel!
We had out of state friends in town and it's always fun to take them on a boat ride from Upper Prior Lake to Lower Prior Lake. We always stop at Charlie's for food and adult beverages before heading back to the other end of the lake where we live on. Always a nice treat for our friends to experience of the 10,000 MN lakes!
Charlies on Prior was great! Everyone working was very friendly and the food was very tasty. Will absolutely return!
Always a fantastic dining experience! Love Charlie’s.
Absolutely enjoyed our time here. Only negative comment is that Charlie's broasted chicken was much too salty. Otherwise all other meals for very good.
Steaks were a bit overdone and chewy....had the Filets. Hash browns were warm/cold...Had the mushrooms replaced as they were cold when they came out.
Service is/was always good.
Great atmosphere and environment. The staff and food are good.
The food presentation could improve with a few simple and low cost impact. I ate the walleye sandwich that presentation was not great but could be since it was very tasty. My daughter ate the popcorn and my son had the mac & cheese shrimp from kids meal. The kids meal presentation also could improve since kids are looking for something "fun" it could include something "funny" and more "kid appealing". my mother ate the walleye tacos. My husband ate the chicken nachos which looks very good and great presentation. With a few simple changes the presentation can be amazing. Thank you for the great time at the lake.
Quiet at first then got crowded so obviously noise level increased. Excellent food )
Hamburger didnt taste like hamburger....not good. Kettle chips were stale.
Overall had an okay experience. Went out with some friends. 5 people total. It was busy-ish for a Tuesday night. I felt like our server was not very attentive. It took quite some time to get our order in.
The main issue was when we received our meal. I ordered the country fried chicken with mashed potatoes and Asparagus. I received fried chicken with French fries and cole slaw... so I mentioned this to our server and she brought me a tiny bowl of mashed potatoes. It was about 5 bites worth. Never got my asparagus... not impressed with the service, however the food tasted good so that was a positive.
I’ve been here a couple other times besides just tonight and the food has always been pretty good, just the service has been lacking a bit. Drinks are always good!
Expensive food and drinks. Food was not good. Nice view and good wait staff.
Great service,menu,and location. Food presented very well and was excellent.
Very nice atmosphere inside , a little noisy but I've experienced worse. Table was ready (had reservations) service was great. Food needs some help. French fries were cold :( They charred the steak , asked for med/well was VERY Well done! Did not have a steak knife at the time the steak was ready ????
Maybe the young man walking the dinning room should have helped in back..just saying .
It's a great spot for food and relaxation. Great views of the lake and fun people.
Great time great food
Beautiful place with this huge outdoor balcony overlooking the lake. We went on Easter so we sat inside but we'll be back in warmer weather! Food in my estimation wass so-so. Grandkids however loved the wings and tacos. Service was a little slow but not a problem as we were in no hurry. I loved that they didn't automatically bring water to the table. They asked us what we wanted to drink as soon as we arrived. If we had wanted, which we did not, we would have asked them. I've gone to places where huge glasses of water sit on tables untouched. What a waste!
The service was excellent! A great staff! Overall the food was very good. I was a little disappointed in one of my dishes but that might be on me. Definitely will enjoy many more meals with my family at Charlie’s
Great food and value.
I’ve eaten at Charlie’s about 7-8 times since its opened, it’s close to where I live and the only Restaurant on Prior lake. I’ve eaten both in the upstairs restaurant and below on the patio, unfortunately I usually leave saying I’ll never stop again, food and service have consistently been way below standard. I should have learned by now.
Great dinner on Prior Lake. The BBQ platter was excellent and the home made BBQ sauce has a little kick that is very unique. It was a wonderful dinner to watch the sun set!
The service was very good and prices were reasonable. A great view of the lake to top it off!
The food was great and the service was wonderful! A nice selection of beer too.
We stopped in for lunch. The food was very good and served hot. We had a burger and small pizza. The service could have been a little faster however we weren't in a hurry that day.
Went to Charlie's on Valentine's Day. Ordered from the special they had for this day. Everything was fine so far. Ordered Scallops from the entree menu. Was disappointed because for an entree, they only give you 3 pieces of Scallops! This should be an amount for appetizers not an entree. If I would have known I'd only get 3 pieces for an item off the entree menu, I definitely would have ordered something else. Who gets full from 3 pieces of Scallops? My boyfriend end up sharing his entree because he felt so bad. So I felt bad he had to share his entree with me. Other than that everything else was fine.
Wonderful atmosphere and great food! I’m excited to come back in the summer to enjoy the outdoor seating!
Brought some friends from out of town. Wanted something with a great view. First visit. View was great and everyone enjoyed thier lunch.
