Just had dinner here, seated right away in a comfy booth, super friendly and attentive waitress, I had Atlantic salmon, broiled. My companion had the coconut shrimp. Both entrees were very good and came with choice of 2 sides. We were there nearly a couple hours, nice place to talk, a relaxed atmosphere with no loud music or TV, great... More

Overpriced food that taste awful. Wait staff was nice but the stone crabs were expensive and only came with three claws. We got the mussel pasta with garlic cream sauce. The mussels were over cooked and the sauce was creamy but no flavor. Won't be going Back there. Checkout the Seafood Cellar. Much better and authentic

The reception was warm but the platter was disapointing in terms of flavour. Nit much else to say. The house was full and atmosphere was good.

Had a great lunch here. Really fair prices. We had the lobster bisque, calamari, and crab legs. All were delicious! A server even showed us a few tricks to openung the crab legs. The service was A+.

I got a pasta dish that had mushy spaghetti and sauce like Ragu. I had to coat it with grated cheese to be able to eat it. Why did I eat it? I didn't want to upset my friends who were there with me. I will say their crab cakes looked better but maybe you should drive a little further... More

Had the chowder two nights in a row and excellent both nights! If you want a relaxed atmosphere with good seafood and great service, you need to try Charlie's. It has a fish market as well, but haven't tried it.

I must say I just don't get it. The parking lot is always full, everybody from the Villages raves about it. So after not setting foot in the restaurant for 11 years, my husband and I gave into my sister and visiting family to go to Charlies for dinner. We arrived at 5:30 pm on a Sunday. We started off...
