They have a great salad bar - even the bread they bring to the table is really good, and their fish excellent. Come hungry it's a lot of food. And good to make a reservation because there is always a wait. But as you wait there is a drink area - so it's all good

Charley's was right across the street from our hotel (which gave us a coupon) so it was an easy place to try. Restaurant is dimly lit but cozy.Charley's was full but not too loud and tables were not on top of one another. Food was great (although my fish was a tad on the buttery side) and the salad bar...

We had a prime rib and a NY Strip, baked potato and sweet potato, both were excellent and the salad bar is excellent. Service was very good, steaks were cooked to perfection, however the size of both the steak and the prime rib were both a very small compared to other restaurants.

The salad bar was enough by itself but we had entrees also. We had sampled seafood for several meals so our Midwestern beef desires were on overflow.. We had prime rib and it was very good. Nice seating by windows overlooking water and boats....

Early bird from 5 until 6. Excellent service and good food value. No bar but waitress service while waiting for a table. Doesn't open until 5 and the bargain hunters are in line. Salad bar or soup included with entree. If you don't mind seniorville this is a good stop.

Have been here every year and the food is great! Gotta get there early though as everyone comes. The salad bar is the best and so versatile, neat and tidy. Will always come back!

The salad bar is nice. The presentation of the fish entree was unappealing and they soaked my sweet potato in what appeared to be margarine instead of butter. It was like a pool of melted oil in my potato....yuck. There was nothing else on the plate beside the fish and the swimming potato - no garnish, no veggie nothing. Service... More

The salad bar was well stocked and fresh but as with most salad bars, the patrons did not practice good hygiene. I will not elaborate. My wife had a filet that was overcooked and tasteless. I had ribs and chicken breast. The ribs were extremely small and not very tasty. the chicken breast was excellent! The bread was vary good.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a good dinner here. They have a pleasant lounge area to sit in while you wait for your table, and if you walk in before 6:00 (even at at 5:59), you can get the "early bird" half price drinks. We were both getting burned out on seafood, so we had steaks. I had the small... More

Go here early! It's popular and fills up fast! Food was great. I got blackened catfish and it was delish!
