The seafood is caught fresh daily, servers are attentive, huge place - lots of tables. Nice location, overlooking the water. The food was pretty typical, nothing really creative. Good quality and taste.

We had a great appetizer of smoked mullet. I enjoyed fresh caught shrimp, fried and scampi. The beer is cold and the service fantastic (our waitress really seemed to be loving life). The outdoor dining was great, as the weather was perfect. Large tarpon come to feed on the fish guts from the cleaning performed next door, at the deli... More

Nice meal except for hushpuppies - good salad, fish and baked potato. Limited beer selection. Only had bud products on draft. Ran into this a lot in Florida. No craft beers down there???

I'm not a huge seafood fan but when I come to Florida I want to eat it and I want it to be authentic. Charlie's offers that and more. The food is great...the service is great...the atmosphere is fantastic for a local place. Try the crab stuffed shrimp...I'd never had that but since I don't get the chance to take... More

Great surprise ... Right on water. There is patio seating..but all guests can go out on deck to see Pelicans and snook feeding on fish scraps as they cleaned fish. Grouper and mullet caught locally. Staff very friendly.

We ate lunch here and it was very good. I got the gumbo and they gave me samples of their other signature soups. I have to say that the lobster bisque was delicious! The service was fast and the staff very friendly and accommodating. Prices were comparable to similar restaurants. I would definitely go back!

This restaurant staff understands the meaning of hospitality. We waited for a table while a very competent bartender kept us entertained and refreshed with delicious drink specials. Wonderful experience on a very busy night. Shrimp and mussels were fresh and we'll prepared. We loved it.

We were pleasantly surprised with our lunch at Charlie's Fish House. It's location is very convenient for those who are visiting the area to experience the manatees of Crystal River. The luncheon specials were a great value for excellent seafood! We were warmly greeted and seated. Our waitress was efficient and friendly. All three of our lunches were right on!
