My husband and I had asked your hostess last weekend about the Flank Steak with Cajun Mojo Sauce. She told us if we made a reservation for this weekend, the chef would get the ingredients and it would be the special this weekend. Thank you all for keeping your word and delivering an awesome steak! We truly enjoy our dinners at Lil Charlie's, the staff is great as is the food.
Thank you again for a wonderful, delicious dinner and a great place in which to enjoy it.
I can honestly say, have not had even an average meal or experience here, they are always great. Sure I have my favorites on the menu, but on the occasions that I venture off the path, I have never been disappointed. Just this week, I had the craw fish etouffe and it was surprisingly great, (surprising because this is in Batesville, IN but I should have known better.) The rotating specials are creative and while I have not tried all of them, I wouldn't have any reservation in doing so.
It is obvious the owner cares about his business. His staff are professional and most importantly in my mind consistent even the newest hires are into this mode quickly. You are always greeted with a smile and a knowledge of the menu/specials. Service is quick and attentive, but not overly so, which to me can ruin a dining experience just as much as no server coming by.
Sure there is some chatter and a bit of an excited din, but this is a brew pub, and it delivers well on that theme. I would call myself a beer snob, and for most of my 6 years working in Batesville, I have been disappointed in the beer selection of other establishments in town, but the offerings at L'il Charlies are a great mixture, and definitely not just a bunch of the hoppiest IPAs like most bars that claim to have a "great beer list" focus on.
I would and have recommended L'il Charlies to anyone I know traveling through the Batesville area, and would also do so to anyone reading this review.
