Welcome to Charley's 


Who We Are

Our Roots

In 1975, after retiring from Professional Baseball with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Charley Sands decided to open a chain of restaurants called Charley's in various cities of Virginia and North Carolina. The first opening occurred in Charlottesville, VA. The Lynchburg Charley's was the second to open on September 24, 1980 at the River Ridge Mall.  

Our catering department was created in 2001 offering full service off-site catering for any events including business meetings, anniversaries, weddings and birthdays. The catering menus consist of Charley's favorites as well as creative new entrées.

The Lynchburg Charley's is now an independent restaurant owned by Rob and MJ Pearson.

Here's how to reach our people:
