Considering how many rank bars (and restaurants) I've been in and out of, I'd say the Charles nails great ambiance, cleanliness, friendly staff and efficiency.
They took reservations for a UFC fight.
They make the best lemon pepper french fries in the city!
I requested to have salt & pepper wings with different sauces on the side, for picky people to share. Well done wings!

I first went to the Charles Bar about a month ago for a Yelp event and have since become addicted to their beer battered lemon peppered fries. OMG, they are AMAZING. In addition, they have $4 glasses of wine during happy hour (3-6pm), and as their Wednesday drink special. As someone who is poor and likes to drink, this is one of my new favourite places.
Mediocre food, rude staff, definately not a place you wanna spend your money. Go to the many other places within the two black radius
