charlie's pub & restaurant

Located in Terre Haute, Charlie's is a destination restaurant and pub for hungry patrons that are traveling through the area, and a little piece of home for the locals that have been coming here since the 70's.



The spot where Charlie's is located has been serving the south side neighborhood of Terre Haute, IN since the early 30's.  Whether as a grocery store as it first started or as today's Pub & Grub, it has been a tradition in supporting the neighborhood.  In 1972, when Morris and Betty Tweety sold the tavern to Charlie and Lois Crispin, Charlie's started serving the "Tweety Burger" to honor Morris; the tradition continues today.  

For 20 years, Charlie and Lois ran Charlie's Hide-a-way until they sold it to Kevin and Gail O'Laughlin in 1992.  To honor Charlie, the name stayed the same - but, we are no longer hiding!  Improvements to the location have secured the business and the tradition to last for another generation.  Kevin and Gail has owned and operated Charlie's for 22 years and only recently sold it to Cheyne and Nikki O'Laughlin.  Excited to keep it in the family, Cheyne and Nikki intend to consistently provide quality food, drink, and fun while supporting the local community.  We are proud of our neighborhood location and will try to stay true to what we are and what we offer - your neighborhood pub & grub.
