I have dined at Charley's for quite a long time now and I definately enjoy everything whenever I go there, however, after all of my experiences dining there, here are the key elements that guarantee you a perfect meal. Either go to dinner early or late night in order to get a prime outdoor seating spot for great people watching and luminescent lighting. The waitstaff should bring you over bread, but if they do not please ask for it, it is out of this world. Fresh from the oven, cripsy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside, and the homemade butter makes everything melt in your mouth! Also, for wine I highly reccommend a glass of Moon Mountain's Cabernet Sauvignon. Incredible flavor, Sonoma Valley vineyard, and hard to come by in the New England area. I would then order a garden salad, I believe it is an extra $1.99 when ordering an entree, with the House Creamy Italian dressing. The salad is not anything outstanding but the dressing is incedible, you will lick the plate. Now for the drum roll, the reason I come here, a dish I have made my own version of just to satisfy the craving, the Angelhair Primavera with Chicken! This dish is highly flavorful, the matchstick vegetables are cooked perfectly and with grated parmesean cheese on top and a couple dashes of their Bull's Hot Sauce, you are good to go for an incredible burst of flavor in your mouth! I usually skip dessert because I have no room left in my stomach, but the entree is tasty enough that will leave you wanting to come back for more.
Pros: Angelhair Primavera, Moon Mountain Cabernat, & Outdoor Dining
Cons: Can't think of one
