  • A total gem of a place, in operation in Charlie's family since 1937. We came for the first time tonight for some burgers, and Charlie was kind enough to stay open late for us to prepare a few (note: he closes up at sunset, which after August is 7/7:30). The view is beautiful, the burgers are delicious, the conversation is lovely, and Mama is a sweetpea. You won't regret a visit.
  • A Burlington gem, a historic and beautiful property right at the mouth on the Winooski River, the very northern edge of town. Kayaks and canoes for rent, earthworms for fishing, cold sodas, and various little sundress, but most of all best as a place to just sit for a minute and absorb the view of the lake. You will find a cross section of Burlington here, longtime residents who know Charlie, tourists passing through, and local who know this the one of the quietest, nicest public spots anywhere on the lake.
  • Great views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks. Charlie is very friendly, the burgers were great, and the prices are reasonable. There's a dock to tie boats up to, but we walked in on the Burlington-Colchester bike path.
  • A nice place - old fashioned hospitality and a lovely setting. The hamburgers aren't bad either.
  • Great place to rent kayaks and paddle up the river
