On a cloudy Monday summer night, my wife and I went to Charley's Crab for some seafood. We were not disappointed. The restaurant offers a view of the ocean, albeit across the street and over a retaining wall, but it sure beats looking at a parking lot. By the way, they offer free valet parking, which is helpful because I... More

This is definitely an upscale restaurant and a great establishment for a formal night out. I went there for the happy hour specials which are very very reasonably priced and had a tapas style dinner. I recommend sitting in the bar area in the back of the restaurant that is a little detached almost like an enclosed gazebo and it... More

We ate here on a Monday night. The overall seating area is small and they were full by 7:30. I had a copper river salmon special and my wife had scallops. They were both very good and reasonably priced. My expectations were clearly exceeded. Also there is a great view of the ocean if you request a table by the... More

We should have went to Ta-Boo... We arrived with reservations and were seated immediately at a window table. Don't fret if you don't get a window table, you look at highway then a retaining wall then the ocean and only 2 tables would a couple actually look out the window, the other tables sitting next to each other you'd turn...

I grew up in Michigan, dining at Chuck Muer establishments, but since this place has changed hands to Landry's, it has definitely lost something. Food was decent, service was good and view was lovely. It's a bit overpriced for the tired decor and so-so seafood and when I took a glance down at the window, there was a nasty grouping... More

Opening Remarks: -Charley’s Crab belongs to a larger group of about 20 South Beach restaurants (the Muer Seafood Group) and has been considered a Palm Beach institution for years. -Located moments from the glitzy Worth Avenue strip and taking hundreds of reservations per night, CC is definitely one of the most popular restaurants in Palm Beach. -Here’s a little interesting...

My friends and I had lunch before heading to the beach. Lobster bisque and crab cake sandwiches were delicious! Decor is very modern and excellent service. We'll be back!

We had a delicious lunch. The menu made us want to come back, which we'll certainly do next time in the area. The dining room is lovely and the service very professional. It's billed as "waterfront", which it is, except that the beach is across the highway and partially hidden by a short wall along the street. But still, nice... More

The Snapper Hemingway was Fabulous! I would recommend that to everyone. The scallops were very tasty as well and good size. If you want Soufflé do it 25 minutes prior- it looked awesome but we didn't know about the wait time We look forward to returning and having the snapper again and trying the soufflé.

Took business guests here for dinner. Great view and complimentary valet is what you pay for. Ordered sea bass with a salad. The salad was horrid. Came out with no dressing and was just a handful of greens on a plate. Could find literally a couple of nuggets of goat cheese and 5 pine nuts. Left me wondering if the... More
