Our Story

The Beginning

In 1966, three local businessmen in their hometown of Warren, NJ, decided to open a steakhouse restaurant that served the highest quality cuts of meat to its patrons. That decision led to opening the first of many Charlie Brown’s restaurants and building what has become a New Jersey steakhouse icon. With a location in the Township of Washington that has been a Bergen County staple for 48 years, we continue to follow our founders’ tradition; their impeccable execution of serving fresh cuts of meats alongside garden-fresh produce from the highest quality farms in the Garden State.


Serving New Jersey with over 50 years of experience, Charlie Brown’s Fresh Grill and Steakhouse offers our signature and aged hand-carved, slow-roasted prime rib, delicious USDA Choice steaks, juicy USDA Choice burgers, our famous Unlimited Farmer’s Market Salad Bar™, and so much more. Our philosophy is simple: to provide great food, exceptional value, and friendly service to each and every customer we serve. No matter where you call home, you can expect the same family-friendly restaurant atmosphere, great service and value, and delicious food you look forward to any day of the week.
