Our friendly bartenders and servers are committed to providing you with the best possible experience and food quality. Our goal is to keep you coming back and to be a mainstay for our customers hailing from near and far.

A Family Place

Everybody loves to visit the Boat Bar, sitting outside enjoying the great up north weather, visiting with friends and family, and on occasion singing and dancing on the ironwood dance floor! Charlie & Deb’s goal is to make their customers feel welcome and to make their meals or drinks as enjoyable as possible so all of our customers will come back to visit again and bring their friends and family to also experience the great food and service that Charlie’s has to offer.

The History

Charlie’s Up North is owned and operated by Charlie & Deb Thompson, lifetime residents of the Walker area. The restaurant was purchased on December 5 and opened on December 15, 2001. With many years of catering in Charlie’s background, the restaurant was initially purchased for catering purposes, however, it soon turned into a full-time restaurant. Charlie built the Boathouse Bar & Grill in the summer of 2002 and it was up and running by 2003!
