excellent restaurant

we had a wonderful meal here...the atmosphere, food, service all first rate. They have a great salad bar, fine fish and meats. We will surely be back if we return to Fort Myers Beach.

The salad bar was amazing. We went for the early bird specials that they had. Nice selection. With the nice salad bar selection you don't need much else. Maybe on the pricey side but well worth it. The early bird specials bring in a lot of people when opening up, so get there early because it only last a couple... More

Food was good, salad bar was fresh and had plenty of choice. Nice views over the back bay. Staff were attentive and friendly. It was pricey but probably justified. We found the restaurant lacked atmosphere and for this reason will probably not return.

Food was good, salad bar was large, very ordinary, nothing outstanding. We thought our dinners were good, but nothing special. Seemed expensive, expected more interesting food for the price.

My husband and I ate at Charley's the last night of our stay in Fort Myers Beach. As many other reviewers have noted, the salad bar is great. My husband had the blackened shrimp, which was very good, and I had shrimp scampi, which was also very good. Our waiter was attentive, helpful, and friendly. We would definitely eat here... More

Usually quite busy, be prepared to wait. My husband and I thought our meal was good but pricey. The salad bar was extensive but not really anything special.

We visited Charley's twice on our vacation. We had very attentive service, and even a coupon for 10% off on our next visit. Decided to try something other than seafood since we had it every other night. We both got the beef tips, they were amazing! Different cuts of meat each with a little different flavor but equally fantastic. The... More

We've visited many times and been very happy with the food but on a recent visit it was obvious that their success has translated to increased prices. This restaurant is really about the salad bar which is truly one of the best but it can take forever to get through the line. Picture yourself #20 in line behind a group... More
