THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Charley's Eating & Drinking Saloon Restaurant Review

: Charley's fills a dining void on Newbury Street with its menu of casual fare --- think nachos, onion rings and buffalo chicken tenders for starters, and burgers, clubs and pizzas, juicy steak tips, sweet baby-back ribs and sizzling chicken fajitas for entrées. This downtown location is a favored brunch spot and watering hole for tourists, students and locals who are looking to stick to the basics with some people-watching on the side. Pair your meal with a glass of Cabernet or a microbrew. Weekend brunch specialties include french toast, corned beef hash and eggs Benedict.
