We live about 20 miles away so we do come here quite often. We have always had good service and good fresh seafood. The crabcakes are made from scratch and are excellent and so is their coleslaw. We've had several different meals from the menu, mostly all good, but usually go back to the crabcakes. It's a nice place to... More

We had a great seafood dinner including stone crab, fresh fish and grilled shrimp with a fresh salad. Good food. The waitress was not up on gluten , but made sure she asked enough questions to serve my wife good food without getting her sick.Big plus!

Charlie's is a good place. The prices are pretty good and the food is alright. The atmosphere is pretty good too. There are better places.

We are locals and have eaten there many times for lunch and dinner. The seafood is fresh, they have outside dining with a waterview as well as inside waterview. Personally I prefer the airconditioning on a hot day. Entrees can be fried or broiled. Not too much seasoning is used. The salad is mediocre, could use a little more healthy... More

The soup was fantastic but at 5.99 a bowl it was sticker shock. My husband had stuffed talibut and it was very fishy. He had a salad which was nothing special and homemade blue cheese and it was runny and average. I had the lobster wrap and it was average. I had green beans for a side and they could... More
