We had brunch there one morning and spent an evening watching the NFL game on big screen TVs. Good bar food and brews. Mostly enclosed; not open air. Very enjoyable.

Not so sure I would eat at Charley's for Sushi. Appetizers, burgers, simple dishes are great though. Entertainment can be interesting as well....
