After you get past the hostess stand- all good

New Years Eve, we are told 45 min wait- ok, we take a 20 min stroll- come back and wait. We see person after person being seated but our name isn't called- I finally get up to check with hostess stand- oh yes, we must have been called in the first 20 min, but no worries- she will seat us... read more

Went there with my son and his wife. We were seated quickly although they were crowded. The Salad bar was fresh and large. The place is very loud so don't expect to have much conversation. The seafood was unremarkable. About what you expect from a place like that.

We went here on a Friday night and were seated promptly. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Although they focus on fresh seafood, they had plenty of options for the non seafood eaters in our party. The salad bar is included with an entree, but it is not an average salad bar. It is huge with MANY options and very fresh.... More

My wife and I heard about this place from some of the local so came for dinner on a Friday night. We both had prime riv which was good but not as good as some others. The salad bar was very good and fresh and service was also satisfactory. Good enough to return.

Not my first (or even second) choice for dinner. Large salad bar, but nothing unusual or memorable. Predictable entree choices. The service was friendly.

The restaurant filled after 4:30 Service was efficient and timely. Drinks, orders wow. Bread fantastic. Large salad bar, and a wonderfully quiet relaxing atmosphere. The blacken catfish was something to write home about and my bride said salmon and sweet potatoes were very good. This is a good evening of good eating.

Since this was within walking distance of our vacation apartment, we arrived at Charley's just after their opening hour of 5:00. We waited about 10 minutes to be seated and got a nice table for the four of us by a window overlooking a canal. Good salad bar and good food with good service to boot!

We ate here on a Friday just after they opened and had to wait for about 30 minutes for a table but it was worth the wait. The salad bar was loaded with choices. The clam chowder and salmon were delicious. Our server Toni was very helpful. Loved her accent! This is a hang out for older folks who like... More

We called ahead for a table and were promptly seated when we arrived. The wait staff were very professional and prompt. They knew who ordered which dish when serving. The salad bar is very fresh, our steaks were done to perfection..one rib eye, one prime rib, one strip steak. We would definately reurn.
