Charlies Place facelift

By Bluebell3333 | Aug 02, 2018

Finally after years Charlie's Place gets a face-lift! The problem is it looks disgusting. The shingles on that old place are so on need of replacement that no matter how much paint you throw on them doesn't help. The light color shows the imperfections more than ever.

As the old saying goes.. You can put lipstick on a pig and it still looks like a pig.

Never mind Charlies Place, what about the old Ocean spray buildings and foundation third world  S hole.  That dump was going to be the phoenix from the flames. Why is that not at least demolished and filled in. The Town should take it by eminate domain if something is not done about that eyesore and safety hazard.

Why on earth would you call a restaurant out in this forum? How about calling them instead of being nasty? Heaven forbid!

Isn't that what this section is for, voicing your opinion ? You have no problem spreading your peachy talk... Go stroke the ego of the school committee or dog park club.

You have to admit, Charlie's is dated inside and out. While they might be making some effort to clean up it's appearing to be a little late for that.

I think Charlie's has been using the same dishes, silverware, glasses and the metal plates they serve pizza on since they opened about 50 years ago. That's stuff outlived Charlie, his father Nick and mom Helen, not to mention half of his regular customers

I happened to be driving by it yesterday and noticed how NICE it looks now.  Much better than before.  Not sure what your problem is with the work that was done there.  I suspect that you have more than the outside of the building that you don't like about the place.  Pretty nasty post you put up here, but what else would I expect?

Wanttoseechange, I was thinking exactly the same thing. After seeing this post my husband and I went for pizza there last night. Just as fantastic as it has always been.

Bluebell3333,Wow what a busy life you must have to be looking at a roof! To bash an establishment that has been in business for what, 40 years!!! To know the names Nick and Helen you must either be an old disgruntled customer who didn't get their whisky shot fast enough or an employee who doesn't know how to do their job correctly. If you look around at all the establishments that have come and gone and to have Charlie's Place still carry on in spite of your "nit-picking" comments! I think all the other commenters say it all! (aside from Crankypants who has an appropriate name) Get a Life, Bluebell3333!!

Sphere-hey I agree 100%! Time for someone to write up a formal complaint about that dangerous eyesore and applaud the businesses doing their part.
