Great atmosphere and décor. My drink from the bar was wonderful! Didn't care for the conch fritters but the chowder and gumbo were good.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch of fried turbot and fried mullet. The fish was fresh and lightly battered. Would definitely recommend Charlie's for wonderful fresh fish.

We have decided that in this tiny town of Crystal River that this restaurant has come up with a great tasting way to prepare seared Tuna. Every time it's delicious. Also note that if you look off the deck you'll see amazing Tarpons below!!

Had a great motorcycle ride with friends to Charlies Fish House. It was great! We got to sit outside, there were 8 of out, and enjoy the beautiful weather and the really good food. We had super service, quick, friendly, and attended to our needs. Enjoyed watching the boats and fish.

The restaurant was a nice surprise ... located on the water, it had a deck for dining right at water's edge, had good seafood, good service, was very spacious (tables not on top of one another), and had reasonable prices. We would dine there again.

We are vacationing & there are so many good restaurants in this area that we want to try them all. But, we know that's impossible :( We come to this area occasionally. We had appetizers at Charlie's which consisted of the seafood gumbo & the smoked mullet dip. Both were EXCELLANT! We happened to be here at Happy Hour &... More
