This is the place for BBQ chicken. It is prepared rotisserie-style and the flavour is spectacular. Get a half chicken with salad or fries, chicken sandwich or whatever you like chicken. Highly recommend.

The chicken served at Charred is great...side dishes not so much. Rice is just a big bowl of white rice with chopped onion on top - no butter, or seasoning. Salad was a little bland.

I truly enjoy a good barbque experience and as such immediately went to the Charred Rotisserie House. What I wasn't expected was charred chicken with a bloody pink centre. My colleagues meals looked great.. but next time maybe I'll stick with the beef...

I wasn't sure this was going to fly with my grandmother as she is particular about her food and doesn't like anything too 'different' and she even like the mild sauce! Nathan, our server, was helpful and friendly. Their homemade salad dressing was very tasty...More

Our party ordered the 1/4 chicken, the pulled chicken sandwich and the poutine. All were good. Lots of meat in the sandwich. The fries tasted a little too oily when they cooled down. It was a little pricy but the quantity and taste made it...More

Delicious charcoal rotisserie chicken. Simple menu with soup, salad, sandwich and chicken dinners. Piri piri dip is great. Sides include delicious fresh cut fries, roasted potatoes salad or rice. Local craft beers.

Went for lunch after hearing it was pretty good. That was no exaggeration. The fries were perfect and the chicken sandwich spectacular. Moist flavourful chicken and lots of if on the fresh pillow soft bun. Will be back here tonight for dinner guaranteed.
