Scallops were delicious and broiled to perfection. The pistachios with the green beans were a perfect pairing with the scallops. We both ate every bite!
But the best was the Granny Smith Apple Cake with Brown Butter Cake, Apple Compote, Granny Apple Sorbet and a drizzle of Raisin sauce. Oh My God!
My friend and I have been to Charcoal many times over the years, but our dinner the other night was the all time best. We were celebrating a birthday and enjoying our table with a beautiful view of the river. The food was spectacular. We had a salad with roasted squash and thin sliced apples, with nuts and a dressing that was based from creme fraiche. We also had the diver scallops and were so amazed to see what a generous portion we received--so tender and delicious too. We love Charcoal!
Best meal I’ve had in a long time. High quality ingredients. BYOB is a plus.
Amazing first time visit to Charcoal for dinner. Will definitely come back!
Best Restaurant in Bucks County!
Outstanding food, service and overall experience. I had not been here for dinner until tonight. I will definitely be back.
Excellent meal! We enjoyed the cucumber salad, lobster & grits, scallops, pasta and amazing desserts. Loved it all!!
Good service and fun night was had by all. Can’t wait to return.
Always get the fried chicken. Everyone had a great meal. From appetizer to desert. Only thing that sort of gets to you is that they charge $5 for bread, although it is amazing. Since this is a byob, you can understand that, but, they should not charge if you want a couple of extra pieces, like two per person.
Probably my 6 th time there and will go back.
We are a group of mostly seniors from our church who eat lunch out once a month. This was the first time most of them ate at Charcoal, although it’s a neighborhood place for me. Everyone enjoyed everything. Only complaint, they couldn’t all see the river!
I’m sure they will want to return again and some found a new place to go themselves.
I was very disappointed in my anniversary dinner at Charcoal. Since I seek out BYOB restaurants, I was happy to find another restaurant to try in my area since it had high reviews. Unfortunately, my experience did not get high reviews. I felt the menu was not a true reflection of the actual food items. Even after the server explained the food choice I was considering ordering and then did order it, it was not how the menu or server described. Also, if a restaurant is going to charge higher prices for meals I expect the meal to be flavorful and properly seasoned. I was hoping for a much better experience for our celebratory dinner.
Never disappointed when I go to Charcoal BYOB. Delicious food, friendly service and fantastic ambiance. We will be back and highly recommend it whatever the occasion.
Always a treat... this time it was better than ever. These guys are really on their game and we will be coming very soon!
We just love Charcoal. The service is exceptional and the food is amazing. We were there for our anniversary and the welcome we got was awesome. Also they accommodate special dietary requirements without a fuss and without making you feel out of place or uncomfortable for asking. We highly recommend this restaurant!!!
The food was excellent.
Amazing tasting food, great ambiance, attentive service without being overbearing. We loved dining here.
We had a very good meal and the service was great.
Good food, especially small plates.
The food is always great and the servers are friendly and helpful and always smiling. Not a large menu but every offering is a winner.
Fantastic food and consistent. And.... BYOB, what else could you ask for! A pearl
consistently delish!! The octopus app and pasta are particularly tasty
Food is original and fresh and always tastes great! Never had a bad meal here.
This is my favorite restaurant! The food is outstanding, the staff are friendly and the ambience is lovely. Most definitely recommend.
Food here is EXCELLENT!!! Be aware though. It is a noisy place because it is so busy and with all the wood—wood chairs, wood floors and a big open space.
Food was amazing!!! The scallops were perfectly done, the short ribs melted in your mouth and every bite was better than the one before it! Don’t get me started on the doughnut, heaven!
If this is your first visit, don’t ignore the bread appetizer. The best sourdough bread that I ever had. A little pricey and not a lot of choices, but I consider the small menu a plus. My wife is a little picky and had a hard time picking but did enjoy her meal as I did.
Phenomenal seasonal dishes keep us coming back to Charcoal. The food continues to be comforting yet increasingly elevated. For a neighborhood spot it’s absolutely the best not-so hidden gem, great for casual Friday nights we don’t want to cook but fancy enough to feel special celebrating an occasion.
We enjoyed Charcoal from beginning to end! The ambiance is superb, romantic if you will. Scenic, peaceful views just about anywhere you sit. Food is divine! Shrimp and grits is my favorite and the braised short rib, my honey fave, is out of this world! Melt in your mouth! The service was good overall also and waitresses can be very helpful describing each plate and or suggesting. 10/10 Always recommend!
Can't beat the ambiance and views of the Delaware River. Had 7 PM reservation, had to wait 20-25 mins to be seated. Once seated service was immediate, appetizers ordered and brought right away. Bread is amazing. The Grilled octopus was delicious but a bit on the skimpy side. The 2 pastas (Fermented Lemon & Ink Fusilli and Rye Radiatori) unusual and very delicious! The Seared Duck was so flavorful, tender and cooked to perfection.
Although the menu is somewhat limited, it is a great dining experience. If you have room for dessert, the donuts are worth the binge!
Charcoal is a favorite spot in Yardley, PA, overlooking the river. It's a very special place in every way. And I try to go at least every couple of months.
The scallops have returned to divine......! I love Charcoal. Looking forward to next time in a big way.
Always a great meal! Beautiful, relaxing atmosphere👍
2nd time here! It’s our favorite date night place.
We celebrate every significant event in our family at Charcoal. Our 29th anniversary dinner was outstanding! Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The food was spectacular. The only time I ever order duck breast is at Charcoal. It is always cooked to perfection. His time, it was paired with roasted asparagus and gnocchi; topped with a butter-herb sauce. The gnocchi were sublime....and I’m convinced that the butter they use has other-worldly properties. It was a magical dining experience.
Always a great experience
As always, the food was impeccable at Charcoal. From the bread to the cucumber salad to the fermented lemon and ink fusilli to the donuts, it was all over the top delicious!
Everything from the food to the waitstaff was great. We will definitely be going back.
Love the bread! Love the food! Love the donuts! The best duck I've ever tasted. Great views and lovely ambiance.
Octopus has returned to the menu and was super with the spicy pepper marmalade, Meyer lemon and ago blanco. Other great new additions were the shisito peppers in green peppercorn marmalade and the beet spaetzle. The hot chicken is always delicious, as are the duck breast and diver scallops! Love this restaurant!
Very fresh and good
