good food and great service

After the Crackers joke (see review), we could not ask for better service. We were seated as soon as walked in. The food was good and plentiful. Our waitress was right there on there on the spot before we had to ask for any thing.

Stopping at Charlies while in Crystal River should be an easy choice for anyone visiting the area. It's a nice clean looking building, with a great view. Inside you will find a pleasant oceany decor and friendly staff. The menu affords many choices and the food is delicious. Charlies is one of my new favorites in the Crystal River area... More

It's low key and has a simple, but well-executed menu. Everything was tasty and the beers were cold.

Food had been better in past visits, shrimp over cooked, friend's food warm but should have been hotter. In fairness to owner, I will admit this was only time I was disappointed.

I ordered the surf and turf with a 6 ounce filet and six fried shrimp. the place was unbelievably busy, turning and burning tables. On the topic of the tables turning over, they had one very apathetic boy busting all those tables. this left a waitress to bus many times. Time and time again I watched a waitress takes 5... More

We went with another couple. The food and the service were very good. But if you are not a fish lover the menu is limited. I should know that as it is called a fish house! I would return.

Lunches and dinner very good. A laid back atmosphere on the water. Service is excellent and friendly. If you like fried mullet this is your place. We always stop there when in Crystal River. Fresh seafood sales also in the same building.

We went here when we had some family in town becasue they wanted to try it, they were hoping for red snapper, which of course they didnt have that day. None of us were impressed. Prices were a bit high and the food wasn't authentic or seasoned. Stone crab claws were the worst I've ever had. Everyone else in my... More

The food was alright, but nothing real special. It was packed when we were there and so very noisy. It does have an outside patio with nice views of the river.

The $6.99 lunch specials are Great value and a lot of food with about 8-10 choices. I had the chopped steak with onions and we also had the white fish. The dinner menu also was good looking. Yes, we would go back.
