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.

Grilled Chicken Alfredo

I get my alfredo with crispy chicken as often as I possibly can. I have worked in several 5 star Italian kitchens, abd this by far is most consistently the best!! Thank you so much for appeasing my craving for delicious food! I'll be ordering this afternoon!

Baked Lasagna

The Lasagna at Charlie's is fabulous. There is no reason to leave town to eat at big chain restaurants when you can get delicious food here... and don't get me started on their fresh baked bread and awesome service. I highly recommend Charlie's!

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.

Charlie's has the best chicken parmesan anywhere. I cannot make myself try anything else. It is cooked and seasoned perfectly. The marinara sauce is amazing. I love it!

Chicken Parmigiana

Even though I've been to Charlie's several times before, I have never had their Chicken Parmesan until this evening and it was fabulous. We were celebrating the birthday of a friend and we all had something different but every dish looked amazing. The dinner salad with raspberry vinaigrette dressing was fresh and delicious. The homemade bread could be a meal in itself. Our wait staff was very attentive to our every need. We never felt rushed to move along and it was just a very enjoyable evening. Charlie's is definitely one of our favorite places on the rotation.

Baked Lasagna

This was the absolute best Lasagna that I've ever eaten and hands down it beats the Olive Garden! I highly recommend coming to this small town restaurant where your treated like family and there focus is to make sure that you are happy with your meal and are well taken care of! The food is awesome and the restaurant is very inviting!

Chicken Parmigiana

As usual food was above standard. Large portions which is the trademark of Charly's. Servive was A+. An Italian from NY who knows Good Italian, this is the closest to a good NY dinner at 1/2 the price. Great value.

Chicken Parmigiana

This was by far the best chicken parm I've ever had. The sauce of creamy and tasty. The chicken was so tender. Each bite was better than the one before. The server was very friendly and helpful with suggestions. The portions were large enough to have leftovers or to share. Great experience.
