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.

We spotted Charlie's as we drove into Crystal River. After we settled into our hotel, I checked Charlie's on Tripadvisor. It received many positive reviews and we agree with all of them. Based on another reviewer's recommendation, I had the scallops Rockefeller and my husband had the combination plate of oysters and scallops. Both were great choices. The sauce on... More

The seafood is excellent; tastes freshly prepared and great flavor. Great service and friendly staff. The restaurant is a large open room with a view of the water. Unfortunately the tables and chairs seem to be leftovers from the last remodel. Beer came in a worn out looking plastic beer stein; upgrade to glass would be nice. All in all,... More

My husband and I ate here recently with a group of friends. I ordered Scallops Rockefeller and my husband had Grouper. Our dinners were delicious and service was excellent. Everyone in our group commented that they liked their meals. We definitely will recommend this restaurant and will return on future trips to the area.

As residents of the "Nature Coast", Charlie's is our standby when we want consistently good seafood. Menu is varied with some seasonal offerings (think stone crab!!!) Weather permitting, the small outdoor seating is a wonderfull way to enjoy the beauty of Crystal River. Server staff have always been friendly and accommodating.

We wanted to sit on the deck outside but didn't want to wait. We were promptly seated right next to the window, next best thing. Server was prompt and friendly. We had a late lunch of the shrimp salad cold plate that included coleslaw, potato salad and crackers. I had a bowl of fantastic lobster bisque soup, we shared. There... More
