When Good Time Charley's swung open its doors in 1979 and the first student walked in, a campus tradition was born.


We quickly became “the place to be” for both faculty and students. Over the last 40 years, a lot in Ann Arbor has changed, but a lot has stayed the same at the corner of South University and Church St: huge outdoor patio, hand-rolled Styx & Twists, Long Island fishbowls, great burgers and fries, and the original "Shooter List".

Easy to walk to, or find parking in the 800 space structure 1 block away on S Forest. 

If its your first time, or your 100th, is always a GREAT time at Good Time Charley's. See you soon!
