We've been to Charlie's many times, most recently in August 2015. The food is traditional Bahamian BBQ. We had ribs, chicken, beans and rice, cole slaw. It was even better this time than the last. BUT the real reason to go here is the owner and karaoke night on Sunday. I know it sounds strange to do karaoke in the... More

Having been to Exuma last year and experienced Charlie's by accident, I couldn't wait to get back when I visited this year. And it was every bit as good as I remembered. The food is great - you wait a while but that's because everything is made fresh to order so it's worth it. And it's such good value for... More

Amazing food, amazing people, you won't leave hungry. They treat you very well here. Best place in town and the price is definitely worth it. Don't waste your time any where else

We have to say Charlie's is our favorite restaurant at the fish fry. Ever fish dinner is freshly caught form the sea. The rice and home made potato salad are the best on the island. Charlie's also offers Karaoke so check it out. A must stop while you are on the island of Exuma :-)

The food is VERY good but the portions are even better! By far the most food for the price on the island! Would definitely go back!

The proprietor Steven takes pride with his establishment @ the Fish Fry. From the quality, flavorful Caribbean meals (more then adequate portions)(love the lobster, grouper, potato salad and rice & pea...awesome!!!) to wonderful adult beverages. Always a great atmosphere at Charlie's with the locals and vacationers! Charlie's does offer karaoke not sure what night. Charlie's also offers TAKE OUT :-)

Customer service is not friendly nor accommodating. The food was bland for the price. Instead of being advised on the Unposted rules and regulations of their establishment being this our very first trip to exuma, we were fussed by more than one employee and ultimately forced to leave.
