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

Stopped here at 2 pm on Sat. This is a southern cooking seafood restaurant with enough choices to please a "northern" palate. Had crab stuffed turbot which was excellent as was the cole slaw. The green beans had a good flavor but too well done for me-but typical southern. My husband had lobster wrap that he really enjoyed. Nice view... More

The selection of fresh seafood was good, staff is friendly and helpful. We both loved the food and the awesome flavor is worth $50 for two adults. The atmospher is lively, large bar, a great place to eat.

We were in Crystal River to go on a swim with the manatees tour. The front desk employee at our hotel recommended Charlie's. We had a table outside on the rear deck. There was a very nice view of the waterfront. Our waitress Amber was just fantastic. All of the items we ordered were great! Very reasonable dinner and drink... More

After running to Homosassa Springs to eat at a well know place and finding it and another place packed with little room, we came back to Crystal River and Charlie's. We found Charlie's to be a nice place with as best a water view as you might expect I the are with fast service, good selections and tasty dinners. We'd... More
