Good Eats

We all enjoyed our lunch. It was our first visit to Charlies and sat outside overlooking the river. Two had grouper sandwich (one was fried, the other blackened grilled), one had cod, one had coconut shrimp. We all thought our meals and service were very good Definitely would return.

VERY fresh fish, tasty sides, great service (Debra was outstanding) and lovely scenery. What more could you ask? How about getting a slightly reduced dinner portion for lunch at a greatly reduced price!? Yeah - you get that, too. We had turbot, shrimp, grouper and mullet in our two meals here, and it was all terrific. I don't know how... More

Enjoyed 2 visits to Charlie's while there. Not a spectacular place, great family dining, reasonably priced, but very cheerful and helpful staff.

You will not be disappointed in trying the Lobster Bisque.....It is great and also the view out back in the outside dining area there are gigantic tarpon and manatee and pelicans and other wildlife to see while having a great meal. There is also a Charlies Fish Market Attached to the Fish House.

Charlie's is also a fresh fish market, but we went for dinner whle visiting my parents. It was standard seafood fare, but very fresh and I had no complaints about my meal. I got stone cab claws, which were a good size and hot. My husband had a surf and turf and said his steak was very tender and shrimp... More

My wife had to have her Stone Crab Claws this past Sunday... Charlies didn't disappoint. She had the claws and a very good seafood gumbo, and I had the Oyster sandwich. Everything was well prepared and at the right temperature, something I am very finicky about...

Really enjoyed the Seafood Combo Platter with Scallops and grouper. Enjoyed them simply broiled. No fishy smell! Very enjoyable meal! The decor could use a facelift and the sides could stand a bit of an upgrade but if you are looking for some no frills fresh fish then Charlie's is a great choice!

Would definitely come back and dine again. their back deck had a great view of the harbor. Not sure if in the summer you can dine out there or not but is a beautiful... More
