The dinners lacked any creativity. Just average diner food at dinner club prices. Just doesn't provide the dining experience we expect.

We went to Charley's because we were staying at a nearby hotel and it was within walking distance. The menu was on the pricey side so we decided on the famous salad bar based on other reviews. The salad bar was pretty good but nothing extraordinary - maybe a notch or two above Sweet Tomatoes. The service was ok, nothing... More

The staff from the Hostess to the busboy was friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and efficient 3. Our drinks from the bar came to our table before we finished ordering our meal! That... More

Nothing to write home to mom about. Salad bar was good not great. Expensive for portions. And $10,00 to split an entree plate...no joke.

Not an elaborate place, but the food and service is excellent! Bring your appetite if you like salad bars! The salad bar has everything you can imagine! We took the advice of some friends to eat here and we're happy we did!

This is a good place to eat. We got there a little after 5:00 and got a table on the water, which was great. The salad bar is pretty standard, but that was fine. The veggies were fresh; canned fruit which we didn't eat. The seafood (shrimp, red snapper, grouper, and crab legs) was all very good. The bread was... More

Got a recommended to visit this restaurant and glad we did. Four of us went Monday for the early bird and got seated right away. There was a wait when we left so I'm glad we came early. They had an excellent salad bar and a very good menu. I had the New York strip and it was excellent. I'm... More

We were told our wait would be about 1/2 hour which was a pretty close estimate. We sat in the lounge area and ordered drinks. One girl seemed to be taking care of this area and she did a great job! The salad bar was large - as advertised - and the corn chowder I ordered was very good as... More

Charley's Boat House Grill was just across the street from our room at the Outrigger resort. We found the salad bar to be the best thing about this restaurant. Our order of shrimp and scallops were too heavily buttered. The portions were a little small too. It was definitely pricy for what you get. Order the soup and salad bar.... More
