Youth attacks a PSNI Land Rover when trouble flared up at Broadway (© PA)
The violence erupted in the Broadway area during the early hours of Thursday.
Police said crowds of people from both sides of the interface threw missiles at officers.
Six men - aged 34, 28, 21, 19, 19 and 18 - have been charged with disorder offences. They will appear at Belfast Magistrates' Court on Friday.
A 23-year-old man has been charged with assault on police and obstruction of police. He will appear in court in the city next month.
A 36-year-old man has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
A total of 10 people were detained following the disorder.
There was also trouble in Portadown, with police asking drivers to avoid Obins Street, Obins Drive and Park Road areas.
However the PSNI said most parts of Northern Ireland enjoyed the quietest Eleventh Night for a number of years.
Despite some localised pockets of disorder this was the quietest 11th night in policing terms that we have seen for a number of years.
Assistant Chief Constable Will Kerr
"We are extremely encouraged that the vast majority of areas across Northern Ireland passed off peacefully last night," said Assistant Chief Constable Will Kerr.
"The robust action shown last night will continue over the next few days."
Constable Kerr thanked community representatives for their support.
He hopes a positive message has been sent out for the rest of the marching season.
"Our message is clear - anyone engaging in violence runs the very real risk of being convicted and ending up with a criminal record," he continued.
"We greatly appreciate the active support shown last night and over recent days from community leaders and representatives to deliver the quietest night that Northern Ireland has experienced in many years. This clearly sets a more positive tone for the rest of today.
"We will continue to support and work with communities to reduce tensions over the next few days and would encourage all members of the public to behave responsibly, to show tolerance to others and continue to work with us to ensure a peaceful 12th period. This is what the vast majority of people here in Northern Ireland want, need and deserve."
