Nice dinner place on the south of the island

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!

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.

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.

Been here a few different times. Salad bar is good but the entrees fall flat - they are just average. Seems pricey for what you get. They do offer full or half orders on most entrees. That probably works well for folks with different appetites. I'd recommend ordering just the unlimited salad bar and eat your fill there.

We have eaten here over the past few years and it's one of the few restaurant that I would recommend in the area (which can't be said for many of the eating places here) Staff change from year to year so you never know what the food will be like. However Charley's Boat House Grill is a safe choice. The... More

This restaurant caters for lovers of fresh fish though there are steaks/chicken as well. The salad bar is amazing. We had two meals there and thoroughly enjoyed both.

We had dinner at Charley's. Reservations are a good idea. We did not have reservations so had about a 20 minute wait. The salad bar is incredible. Be careful not to get too full on the salad options. I had scallops and shrimp (blackened) and my husband had steak and shrimp. The seafood was very nice, not overdone. The steak... More

My wife and I pulled into Charley's and found a nice place to eat with good food and the best wait staff. We had been in the area for about a week and been on a steady seafood diet so we both had beef this night. They had an early bird prime rib, smaller than the prime rib dinner but... More
