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

The Charles is a neighborhood gathering place 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, a large selection of bourbon and a carefully chosen wine list. Above all else, we seek to provide great employment for our team, always respect the environment and give back to our community. 

Stop by for happy hour and dinner any night of the week.  Lunch and weekend brunch coming soon!
