Chicken Parmigiana

Best chicken parmigiana I have ever tried! The chain Italian restaurants don't even come close. The food never disappoints at Charlie's!

Bowl Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Absolutely delicious. I always enjoy the house salad, but the broccoli cheese soup was a welcomed change. I would definitely order again.

Baked Manicotti

Excellent, loved the main course, soup and the fresh french bread was amazing. We are a resident of Ellijay and take our friends there when they visit. My husband loves the lasagna.

Chicken Parmigiana

Been one of my all time favorite dishes for years! Every time I come home to visit Ellijay I request a visit to Charlie's. Their marinara sauce is unmatched; truly a one of a kind restaurant!

Chicken Marsala

We were looking for something that competed with Carabbas since we moved out of the city. We were not disappointed! The marsala was spot on. Loved the home made noodles and hot bread. The broccoli cheddar soup was mind blowing! The wife had the Lobster Ravioli and she is from NH so... it was legit! We will be coming back

Shrimp Diablo

Love love love this dish! I get it almost every time I come & I add mushrooms :) I look forward to it every time I visit North Georgia. It's a huge portion & it's even better left over. Everyone at Charlie's is so sweet so the full experience is always great. The drinks are super affordable too.

Eggplant Parmigiana

We love Charlie's Eggplant Parmesan at both lunch and dinner! It is very light, cheesy and flavorful. Cooked to perfection, the eggplant still has great texture so that you know that it's really there. Many restaurants overcook theirs until it is is just an indecipherable mass. Charlie's salads are always chilled crispy with their superior homemade dressings. Don't even try to resist the fresh rolls and real butter! Always a pleasure...

Applewood Bacon Pizza 18"

Interesting flavor combo for a pizza. Very good and not the same old pizza. We also had fettuccine alfredo, eggplant parmesan, and manicotti. It was all enjoyable.

Maryland Crab Stuffed Salmon

First time of having salmon at Charlie's and it was fabulous. It was flaky and didn't have a strong fishy smell or taste. Great entree that I will order again.

Broiled Scallops

We have been coming to Charlies for over 14 years. In our opinion we love the food. We will be back this week with friends from out of town. We have never had a bad meal. We have had the pizza,Shrimp pasta dishes, Steak dinners & no complaints. This is why we take out of town guest there because we KNOW we won't be disappointed.

Charlies All The Way 16"

We LOVE Charlies! We are especially happy about the new owners who are so nice and friendly. The recipes are still the same and just as good, but now with friendly faces on the greeters and servers. It makes it so pleasant to go there for dinner or drinks and snacks. We usually have the Charlies All the Way Pizza, but because of my husband's new diet, we asked that half of the pizza not have the meats. Well, it looked like they had put all the meats for the whole pizza on my half!!! YEAH! We also adore the Charlies House Salad and dressing. Always so fresh and light. A perfect addition and my husband really likes the chickpeas. Along with delicious homemade bread that they bring hot and quickly (the old owner made you wait until you got your meal before serving it to save them money!!!), we are in heaven. The bar service is terrific with good beer and wine choices and the prices are reasonable. See you there!

Sausage & Peppers/Onions

Charlie's is by far the best italian food ive ever had in my life, spread out over many states. Quietly tucked away it may seem unassuming but i promise it will not disappoint. Always friendly service, very clean, intimate and just all around a great place to go for a romantic dinner or a great lunch. Highly recommended !

Maryland Crab Stuffed Salmon

Easily one of the greatest dishes I've ever eaten. It was fantastic to sit down with my fiancé and choose a unique, delicious menu item that you don't even see at box chain restaurants - because Charlie's knows the deal. Every bite was succulent, delectable, and left me wanting more by the time my plate was cleaned. This is the best menu item here at Charlie's, and I look forward to trying it once more. Kudos to your crew!

Spinach and Cheese Calzone

Oh my gosh! This was the best calzone ever! I ordered extra spinach, garlic and a side order of marinara sauce which made this dish even more delicious. The crust was baked perfect and the three cheeses inside topped it off. You will not get a calzone anywhere like this in Ellijay. This was a take out order as well! The aroma in my car was so permeated, I wanted to pull off the road and eat, but my I was able to make it home with the entire calzone intact! Margaret and her staff are always so pleasant every time my hubby and I dine in! Thank you Margaret for buying the restaurant, keeping another Top Ten - Five Star restaurant in Ellijay!

Chicken Parmigiana

This restaurant is a staple in Gilmer County and provides uptown atmosphere and food with small town service and hospitality. I enjoy going for parties, date nights, and occasional lunch breaks, and always recommend it to family and friends who drive through Ellijay. I never leave without a full belly, a smile, and of course—a to go box!

Steamed Shrimp Alfredo

I loved this dish! The shrimp tasted really fresh and made perfectly and really complimented the food as a whole. The entire meal had an home cooked feel and the alfredo sause was the best I ever had.

Gnocchi A La Romano

Wonderful! I have eaten gnocchi in Italy and New York and Charlie's was just as good!! I was surprised by the quality of the dumplings and the red sauce was fantastic!! Very reasonably priced and something I never expected to find in Ellijay, Ga.
