Winter is the time for comfort foods and cozy surroundings. Familiarity and mouth-watering food around the table abound in these colder times, and Charleston's is a nostalgic name in the Valley, offering a plethora of delicious winter favorites with an ambiance that is meant for family togetherness.
The casual, upbeat atmosphere at Charleston's is equal parts classy and welcoming, utilizing dark woods and gas fixture lighting. This, coupled with a modestly priced menu, makes it a hot spot for festivities this winter. American classics with a fresh twist are prepared from scratch daily with the highest quality ingredients.
Fragrant dishes such as the decadent baked potato soup, topped with bacon, chives and cheese; barbecue baby back ribs, slow-cooked and falling off the bone; grilled pork chop, made on hardwood and grilled with mashed potatoes and baked beans; and the popular enchilada plate, filled with grilled chicken, Monterey Jack and enchilada red sauce, will leave everyone satisfied and ready for the season. Shrimp Cargot, in herb garlic butter, Havarti cheese and served with toast points, or the Parmesan-crusted chicken seasoned in a Parmesan, walnut and pecan crust, topped with marinara on a bed of angel hair pasta, with a grape tomato, mozzarella and red onion herbal salad, are also mouth-watering options to warm up from the brisk weather.
A different soup is featured each day, ranging from chicken tortilla to gumbo, and clam chowder and chili, while the baked potato soup is offered daily.
A huge stone bar is the centerpiece of the restaurant. Enjoy a glass of wine from our extensive list, or try one of the signature drinks like a Perfect Margarita or Peach Bellini.
The action of the display kitchen is great for young kids and families to watch as they dine, and kids 12 and under can enjoy items from the kid's menu. There are seven different options, including a grilled cheese sandwich, kid's sirloin, mac and cheese, and a kid's burger.
Charleston's also has a gluten-free menu and offers happy hour Monday through Friday.
