Dinner was amazing!! Will definitely be back!! 💜💜
We keep wanting to like this place, we've been there 4-5 times. The hostess was very pleasant, the waiter however was not very friendly or engaging. The food was fair (cheeseburger & pot roast). The Charles just didn't give us that warm, friendly, inviting feeling, which is a shame since there aren't many decent restaurants in the Southern Maryland area. Maybe we will try again, in 6 months.
Food was great, service good but slow
Noise level was very high tonight
Awesome as usual. And they have their original hand cut fries back!
Veterans Day brunch with a friend. I wish they had more lunch entree options on their brunch menu. It tends to be mostly sandwiches and salads.
Excellent service and great food
Our server was outstanding! Food was great!
We are so thankful for a quality restaurant that is farm to table. Everything is always delicious and it’s our new “go to” when going out to eat.
So glad we finally got to try it. Food and service were great. Will definitely recommend.
Good setup to watch World Series - great food and service!
Love having this place here in La Plata.
I've heard many good things about the Charles so we decided to give it a try. Our food was excellent, service was wonderful, and they know how to make a perfect Bourbon Old Fashioned, which is a major plus these days. I would definitely recommend The Charles for a nice evening out.
Great food, service and atmosphere!
The food was really good. Had the calamari as an appetizer and a burger. Everything tasted amazing!
Good service. Food average. Brulee cheesecake was awesome! Chad was our waiter and was great!
Overall atmosphere very nice. Service was good but a little forgetful. Food was ok but a bit oversalted. Calimari was very good but very small portion for the price. I was a bit disappointed as I had set this up as a birthday dinner but there was no recognition of the event when I mentioned it during service or at dessert time. I would come back bit possibly for a lunch special.
Wonderful as always.
Appetizer Brussels sprouts entree salmon drinks dessert brownie everything yum! Service by Ned great will be back soon!
Service was a little slow but they were very busy. Food was excellent.
Underwhelming. Keep coming back expecting more... not such luck. Each time part of the conversation is “I wish there were more restaurant options in la plata”
Love The Charles!
Our second visit, and it was not as successful as the first. My entrée (Boneless Fried Chicken) was cold in the middle. A new, fresh plate was prepared quickly, but other than a quick apology from the server there was no acknowledgement of the error, nor any discount on the bill. Disappointing, but still one of the better restaurants in the greater Waldorf area.
Lovely first time! I enjoyed the small but varied menu & the service was wonderful. Will definitely return.
It's a nice atmosphere and our server was very friendly but was disappointed with my meal. I got the chicken salad sandwich and a fruit salad. Very skimpy on the chicken salad, though tasty,...nice bread but dry sandwich overall. Fruit salad consisted of cantaloupe and honeydew melon...no berries, peaches, or apples. Subpar.
Great food, great location, and wonderfully friendly staff!
Great evening and location for our anniversary food was great. We had a great time. Didn’t feel rushed. Drinks were mixed to perfection. Starters were unique and delicious. Min meal was fantastic. We had to have desert because all the previous courses were so good. We ended up rolling out very satisfied. We can’t wait to return.
Went to celebrate my birthday! Food and service were great, will definitely be back!
We always enjoy our dinner at the Charles
I ordered a medium steak and it was rare. The service was horrible for a place that wasn't busy at all. The server completely ignored us for the most part. When the food came out all but a salad came out and by the time we got the salad for the last person everyone was almost done eating. Never got drink refills or ketchup one of the kids requested. The food is good but just ruined by the poor service.
Of course I would recommend The Charles, I have and will continue to do so. My husband and I have been there several times and enjoy the people (wait staff & management). This visit was to celebrate a friends birthday and my husband always recommends the Cat Fish. He was just a little disappointed this time because they changed the sauce from an Aoli to a Tarter Sauce. One of our friends is a vegan eater and she was able to find a few choices.
The server, Casey, was inattentive and forgetful. It took her 30 minutes to bring the appetizers, had to ask for drink refills and then got the wrong beverages. I would let it go but this was our second time with her as our server and had the same experience two times. It may be a lo g while before we return. Food was very good.
The service was painfully slow and for some reason the fries were different which we look forward to every time. There was no color to them at all and not crispy, as usual.
Wonderful. Will be back for happy hour.
My burger was overcooked- I ordered it medium it was basically well done.
We were celebrating a special occasion and it was very lovely
Service was exceptional food was great
Was a little surprised our table was not ready since we had a reservation and it was not busy
I tried the herb baked chicken for the first time, and it was exceptional. Service overall good as well. Look forward to returning soon.
If you like local dining, this is a must. The Charles is a great Southern Maryland restaurant. We had a wonderful brunch.
We came here for restaurant week and it was another great meal. The atmosphere was wonderful the food was excellent and the service was great
Did not like the meal selection! Lot of fried food and to spicy!
The food is flavourful but pricy. The staff were pleasant and welcoming. We were seated in the area surrounding the open kitchen which was noisy; kitchen staff noisy and somewhat boisterous, clanging dishes and pots and pans, which made it difficult to have a conversation.
