Good Food and Good Service!

To be honest, we came here thinking we were going to another Seafood Restaurant in Crystal River. We decided to go ahead and try this place out. The food was great and the service even better. We will probably dine here again on our next visit.

We chose Charlies Fish House because it was close to the motel we were staying at. It was decent food, cooked well, but nothing spectacular. We requested to eat outside on the patio, but was told it was closed due to weather, then about 15 minutes later they opened it up to customers. The broiled seafood combo was cooked well.... More

Did this one two nights! Was well worth it. Setting and eating outside on water was a nice touch to end of day! We shared four different fish entries and all were excellent. Fried least preferred ! Do it!

Consistently good, dined there many times. They also have a great market where you can buy fresh seafood, try the crab cakes! Where the locals go for seafood.

If you got to Crystal River you can't leave without trying the food at this place. Lobster bisque is delicious, creamy and full of lobster chunks. The scallops Rockefeller are to die for. It worth every penny I paid for the meal. It is a busy place and not fancy. Looks clean and served by friendly personnel.

The spicy Boom Boom Shrimp, along with fried Okra and their Lobster Bisque Soup was EXCELLENT. I would definitely go back for more and I am not a sea food lover.

Very good food. We always try to make 1-2 visits when in Florida. The baked grouper is out of this world. You won't be disappointed I dont think. You can eat out on the deck and watch the boats also. They are located on a canal like off the river I believe.

Our family of 5 had dinner here and were very pleased. Our server made excellent recommendations and was very friendly. Food was excellent, drinks were strong. My son loved their crab legs. The views from the back deck are gorgeous at sunset.

You can eat outside on the dock. My party ate inside. Everybody was pleased with their food and drinks.

We had Conch Fritters for our appetizer. They were good tasting but slightly over cooked. I had 13 large Shrimp with no pre seasoning. It was delicious. Perfectly cooked and the breading did over power the shrimp taste. My wife had Lump Crab cakes. Again, absolutely delicious. Our sides were Cole slaw, cheese grits, and fries. They were all very...
