Charley's ever since they were a Mid-Atlantic chain has been my favorite. The Pearson's have just continued the tradition. One of the best places in Lynchburg to dine, food & service excellent & prices are on part. I love,the house dressing & the puffed pastry French onion soup. All entrees are excellent.

I would like to give this a zero rating but that's not an option; one is the lowest possible. I do not understand the good reviews of this place. The food is straight out of an episode of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares; everything is frozen and just reheated then served with no presentation whatsoever. The chicken fingers were perfect square... More

Took a little ride to the restaurant but it was well worth it. The waitstaff was very welcoming and a lot of help with a very large menu. The service and food were really good and I was delighted that I follow the recommendations on trip advisor.

Had the petite steak dinner! Cooked to perfection and whole meal was great! My kids meals were done fabulously and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. Totally recommend it to get away from Ward's road which can get very crowded with Liberty family excitement. Will go here again!❤️

After a last minute decision to have our small wedding reception catered instead of doing it ourselves (less than 3 weeks) I contacted Lisa and explained our situation. She informed me they were already obligated on that day but would contact kendrick to see if they could accommodate us without sacrificing quality. He agreed and they were VERY true to... More

We often go out to eat in the middle of the afternoon or early evening. You definitely need to do that on the weekends at this restaurant. They were celebrating their anniversary - 30 or 35 years of serving excellent food in Lynchburg. They had a special menu featuring favorites from the year they opened and at old, cheaper prices....

They had a very good menu. The quiche was very good and so was the rueben. Some in our party had the sandwiches that were very good also.

We got there at 1:30pm or so and they where able to seat us despite it being a party of eight. The service was quick and the waiter kept up with all the drinks and orders very well. Good food and great staff..

Our first time eating here. For me it was a difficult choice for my meal, they had 3 of my favorites: prime rib, chicken cordon bleu, and the petite filet. Food was very tasty,, service was quick and correctly prepared. Good accommodations for handicapped folks like me - wide aisles and adequate parking.

Charley's has been in business in Lynchburg since 09/24/1980-almost 36 years! That in itself says a lot. The owners are very active in the business and you may be surprised by them visiting your table and asking for your comments.
