Stopped by for dinner while staying on the beach and really enjoyed it. The menu is expansive with lots of great choices. The blackened Mahi Mahi I had was great and cooked perfectly- not too mention, the salad bar is amazing! Request a table by the window over looking the water for a great view during your meal. Will definitely... More

Lovely food and great service. The salad bar was amazing and puts the Harvester in the UK to shame..! Not so keen on the decor (a bit dark) and would only really like to sit but the water at the back, which luckily we were.

While in Ft Myers Beach this July we had dinner twice at Charley's and were very happy with the food, they have an excellent salad bar with every topping you could think of. The staff are very friendly, the restaurant is organised and well run. We will definitely return the next time we are in Ft Myers.

Charley's was across the street from where we were staying so we decided to try it. They offer an early-bird menu and we arrived in time to try it. The dinners listed on the menu were approximately $5 off the regular price. We tried the teriyaki steak which was excellent, a regular sirloin which was way overcooked and tough, salmon... More

The restaurant was very dated, 1980's and needs an update to decor to match the prices they charge. Paid $28 for a NY Strip and baked potato that Outback blows out of the water. Not impressed with "Sizzler" style salad bar to make up for over priced seafood and steak. Felt gouged as tourist after leaving this restaurant.

Ate here at 6:00 on a weeknight. The menu was overpriced and unoriginal. Salad bar only is $13 and you would be hard-pressed to eat $13 worth of salad in one sitting. One in our party ordered shrimp -- there were a measly 5-8 shrimp on his plate. I joked that he must have ordered off of the child's menu.... More

While in Ft. Myers beach we asked around where to eat for dinner and everyone said, "Charlies". Well......it is one of the best places to eat!! Outstanding service, beautiful view of the river, fresh salad bar and it was HUGE!

We went here for my girlfriend's son's 20th birthday dinner while on vacation.The food was good, salad bar really was full of fresh choices and we got there right at six so the waiter let us order double happy hour drinks and we got a couple early bird dinners which was cool. The absolutely insane woman at the next table... More
