Been a while between visits

We've been there before when it was Charlie Brown's. Still looks the same as it did in days gone buy. Could use some freshening of the decor. Service was excellent though. My wife and I both had prime rib, which was made just the way I like it. Very nive salad bar with lots of variety on it.

We have been travelling to Ft Myers Beach every year for years now, and we were lucky to find Charley's on Estero Blvd. We have had the best seafood dinners there every time we have dined there. The staff is courteous and friendly; and the salad bar is the best we have ever seen. And be sure to save room... More

Charleys boat house offers early bird dinners from 5-6 pm at a reasonable price but after that a bit high ! Prices seemed geared towards tourists.. but that is much the same in all tourist areas... still the quality of food was good and service was average but go early for value.

A menu is not a menu without prices. I guess the owner figures you won't leave once you're inside.WRONG,prices are insane, interior is dated,there is no Gulf View, there are many other restaurants that supply prices prior to your arrival,do yourself a favor and try out another restaurant, I really don't care that there is an extensive salad bar.

My husband and I went to Charley's while staying at the Outrigger Beach Resort across the street. Owned by the same people. The food is pretty pricey, but I had a steak that was great! My husband had the Flounder and it was just OK. The salad bar is great. Lots of items and really fresh!

We ate there once and thought the food was ok - try the early bird specials to save some $$. It a place definitely worth it for the soup and salad option. We had this twice last time we were in town. When you get tired of all the fast, fried etc and nice fresh salad does the trick! One... More

Tried this restaurant because it was convenient - the salad bar was good but the rest of the meal had absolutely no flavor. I had the grilled grouper - the menu said local - didn't taste fresh like it would local and was grilled with no spices at all and only 5 ounces. My wife had scallops/shrimp scampi - we... More

We had to wait a bit to get in to this very popular restaurant. But it is worth it, and popular for a reason. GREAT food, terrific selection, and a magnificent salad bar. Staff was helpful and accommodating. One of the really great places in Fort Myers Beach.

Limited menu but the meal was very good. The interior is dated but it's charming in its own way. Very nice waiter who was very knowledgeable and helpful. Delicious steak and giant salad bar.
