Great catfish. Watch the pelicans while you dine. They're waiting patiently for the fishing boats to return and unload.

We wanted to eat stone crab and it is difficult to find a restaurant that serves this where we live. We drove over an hour to Crystal River. Charlies is not a fancy place but I liked the decor and the view of the water. Our stone crab was delicious and reasonable compared to places on the coast. The side... More

Pretty OK place. Interesting options on the menu, but on average a bit too much focus on quantity in stead of of quality. However, with regard to the alternatives we scoped out in town (not too extensively I admit), I'd still chose it tomorrow if I was in Crystal River.

Food good. A little noisy. But would go back. generous servings. Hushpuppies also tasty, but not hard on outside.

I've eaten here 4 or 5 times over the last 6-7 years. Probably only for convenience. So I have certainly tried to like this place. The restaurant itself has a nice setting, right off of hwy 19, and has a nice view of the water out back. But I have never in all these years have had a really good... More

Very simple decor, not a whole lot of ambiance, but the food was very good. Seafood chowder a great starter. Great fish dip and salads with in house blue cheese dressing. Entrees, seafood combo platter with thin crisp breading. Scallops in a rich sauce, great cheesy grits as a side. Rich and savory crab cakes and large peel and eat... More

Every time we come to the USA we forget the size of the portions!! We should have just had appetisers and a main to share. Saying that everything was good. Scallops Rockafella were good, oyster soup (very pleasant), crab stuffed prawns (spicy but good), fried grouper and fried oysters (both very large portions and lovely). We all loved the food...

I have dined many times at this water front eatery. The seasoned lightly fried shrimp and oysters are delicious. The smoked mullet spread is well worth ordering. It is delicious. One of my dining companions always orders the grouper sandwich which she really enjoys.
