Welcome to The Charles, an iconic restaurant space in the heart of historic La Plata, Maryland.

The Charles is a neighborhood gathering place for the local community and the county, where all folks can dine, drink, celebrate and always feel welcome. We serve unique twists on American favorites along with local fare that highlights the culinary traditions of southern Maryland. We source much of our produce from our own local EatWell Natural farm and other local purveyors. We offer all at fair prices.

We feature American and regional beers, hand crafted cocktails with a large selection of bourbon along with a well chosen wine list. We seek to provide great employment for our team, always respect the environment and give back to our community. Stop by anytime for dinner nightly, weekend brunch or lunch daily.
