Fantastic location and view. Lunch was good, not great. Same can be said for service on this visit. Good, but not great. The potential is there, but perhaps this is a case of being known and established in a small town so no need to go the extra mile. Plan to try them again on the next visit; perhaps I... More

We sat out on the deck overlooking the Crystal River, the place was hopping for a Tuesday early lunch. The food was excellent and well priced.

Went to Crystal River intending to go to Crackers. They were so busy that we decided to try Charlies Fish House instead. Always looking for a new place to eat on the water. View is very pretty, service was good but my daughters dinner came with a hair right on the top! Sent it back along with the cole slaw... More

Let me start with saying the view from the waterside patio is beautiful. Make sure you sit where there are ceiling fans, critical during the summer months. It wasn't a busy Sunday afternoon. Our waiter didn't seem on his game. Refills were hit and miss on this scorcher of a day. The coconut shrimp seemed prepackaged with little fresh taste.... More

We ate at this restaurant on a Saturday evening (a group of 28 women). We made reservations, and our set table was waiting for us when we arrived. Our service was excellent and the majority of the food was cooked to perfection. My only disappointment was that the fried clam strips on my fisherman's platter appeared to have been previously...

We stopped in for a late lunch and early dinner during an afternoon thunderstorm. It was not very crowded. The food was very good (fish sandwhiches, fried shrimp, and salad). However, the service was extremely slow! It took almost and hour and a half to order our food, eat and pay the bill. We were a party of six and... More

Get these servers some POS computers! Food was very, very good but service (primarily the kitchen) was abysmally slow. Our very friendly server manually created tickets and then at the end had to manually calculate everyone's bill which really held us up from leaving. Portions are very big and the seafood was delicious. There was not one complaint about the... More

A trip to Charlies is always worth the time. It takes about a hour to get there and Ii have never come away not satisfied or full. Never had their stuffed shrimp before and tried it. Looked like a small portion, until I started eating and by the time I was finished I was "stuffed." I alway get their fried... More

Food was very good. Service was very good. Interior and seating is a little dated, but they've recently installed large flat screen tvs (that dont really fit the atmosphere). This restaurant has a beautiful view, but only has about 3 or 4 total outdoor tables on a very small deck. Inside has ample seating, it just seems a shame to... More
