LittleCharlies History

Owner Kip Miller founded LiL' Charlie's in June of 1999 with the idea of welcoming families, friends, couples, and businesspeople in for a delicious meal, great service, genuine hospitality and a comfortable environment.  Starting as a small, 86 seat restaurant, Lil' Charlie's has grown into a 210 seat restaurant with a one of a kind brewery added in 2009 and a newly expanded outdoor seating area in 2013.  Approaching our 17th anniversary in June 2016, we are excited to be offering Batesville its very first Brewery and Restaurant.

Even as the business has grown, the staff has always stayed true to the goals of great guest service, a fantastic and unique menu, and one of the most creative drink lists around including both local and national micro brews.  Every one of our team members is dedicated to upholding the standards set forth by founder and current owner, Kip Miller.

Lil' Charlie's prides itself on the quality and consistency of menu items and features hormone and steroid-free poultry, USDA choice-aged steaks, wild-caught seafood, homemade desserts, and locally baked breads.

Awarded a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor from 2013-2016, Lil' Charlie's continues to strive to exceed every expectation of our guests!  If at any time you have any feedback or questions, please call out management staff at (812)934-6392.  We would love to hear from you!

"I've visited Lil Charlies many times.

It is a great place to watch a game in the bar or enjoy some great live music on the spacious outdoor patio.

Great selection of beers/cocktails and lots of variety to choose from on the menu. I typically enjoy the wings, burgers and steaks, but they also offer fish, chicken, salads and much more.

Staff and management are always attentive and friendly. I'd recommend this place to anyone!"

"If you are in Batesville and you want to go eat out for dinner and you don't want pizza, this is your only real choice. Fortunately, this place is amazing. Incredible pub grub - and steaks & chops, too. Oh, and the beer! Home brews and a small but amazing selection of craft beers from around the country. If your traveling and going past Batesville, this is the best place to stop. If your staying in Batesville, it's THE place to go."
