Great place for having lunches, dinners and parties. Food always good American and pub style. Nicely located in historic Charlton, near Burnt Hills

We needed to make a trip out to Montgomery County and were trying to think where to go to lunch when we remembered The Charlton Tavern. Though we hadn't been there in about 20 years (long before it burned down in 2009) we remembered how great the food was and thought we'd relive a memory. What a great memory! The... More

I hadn't eaten here since it burned down many years ago and was curious to see how it had changed. Our group of six in general enjoyed their meal, although one person's "prime rib" was grilled instead of the traditional baking and was just "OK". It certainly didn't look like the usual juicy cut of medium rare (and it was... More

Love the atmosphere here! Fireplace blazing. Greatly decorated for the holidays. Our family went the night before New Years Eve-also a Friday. Very busy but staff was very pleasant and attentive to our table. The food here is wonderful. A good variety of all foods. More options for vegetarian eaters would be nice however they would most likely make you... More

How disappointing. I've been here many times before and have enjoyed it. Not so tonight and it wasn't just me but the entire party of 4 was disappointed. I guess it didn't help that 3 of us got the Chateau. It was horrible. Tuff and sort of tasteless and not at all what I have come to expect. Not to... More

This was my second visit. The ambience is warm with natural dark wood creating an Inn like atmosphere. The waitress was friendly and attentive, The bread was delicious, crusty and warm. They re-filled it quickly. The stuffed mushrooms were the best I've ever tasted. The hot bacon salad dressing was tasty. The Chicken Nicole pasta dish had cajun chicken in... More

One of our favorite places to have an evening meal. Unplanned night out, stopped in without a reservation and got a great table off to the side by the fire. Knowing how good our meal would be, we skipped appetizers. Steak was perfectly cooked with mushrooms onions and Gorgonzola cheese. Smashed potatoes were a little cool but warmed up with... More

Perhaps it is the energetic ambiance of the Charlton Tavern that misled me into thinking the place would be efficient, but it really was just an overwhelmed staff. Wine and water were hard to come by and when they did arrive, a water glass was overfilled and then tipped into one person's lap. That happens, but entrees arrived helter-skelter, and... More
