After 26 years we are finally gonna make the pilgrimage to Charlie's Bar. Does the public bus system run there from the low rise area? Renting a vehicle is not an option due to the fact that we don't have a designated driver in the bunch.:D I guess a cab is always an option but we are travelling as 3 couples.Thanks!!

im sure there's a bus that runs the course from downtown. a cab ride would be cost prohibitive. i can't imagine how much they'll charge you considering a ride to flying fishbone/old man is $30-35 one way - and that's 1/2 way to charlie's bar!

Yes, 3 couples, 2 taxi's expensive. Before you go make sure they will be open. pretty sure closed on Sun. & might not open until 1 or so on some other days.

Mmm... the shrimp scampi dish there is sublime and the hot sauce was awesome! A little expensive - but worth it!

They are closed on Sundays and they open around 11:15am the rest of the week. And if you want the steak sandwich (which is my favorite with honeymoon sauce) you need to order it before 12:45pm (don't know why but you do - LOL!)

I stopped there on a "guided tour," but that was many years ago. Quite an interesting place/area.

They are serious about the 12:45 sandwich... my wife asked for one at 1:30 and the waiter simply said "too late", she laughed and he said he was serious. lol

Oh well

Oh, I know! I've been turned down after 12:45pm, too, so now we always make sure we get there in time! LOL!!

On this past trip, I ordered the steak sandwich (we were sitting at our usual bar spots), he looks at his watch and I immediately said "It's only 12:20". :D

Thanks for the 411, especially regarding the eats there. Looks like I gotta do a little research once there regarding public transportation. Maybe Bully can hook us up a little. Thanks again!!

reminder taxis can take a maximum of 5 folks per taxi, no matter how large the taxi.

I thought I read that charlies was a great place to watch the Pats. play on Sunday. How can that be if they are closed on Sunday?

Charlie's is definitely closed on Sunday's. And they rarely have American football on TV. Mostly soccer.
