I’ve been to Charlies for dinner and brunch and though the vibe has been different for both, the food never failed me. I was blown away on my last visit here by their shrimp and grits served in a bread bowl. I was looking to order something I don’t normally indulge in and now I can’t even stop thinking about it. Everyone can’t make amazing grits, and the succulent shrimp were an added bonus for sure.
The grits were the right thickness and consistency and enough to dampen the bread bowl some. The best part was that they put bacon on top and they weren’t shy about it.
Sunday’s are their motown brunch days and they host a drag brunch on Saturday’s. The motown one is super cool because they have a live performance going on as your mimosas are getting filed. I can’t wait to check the drag one and get their honey butter biscuit which is also a must have.
