I had not been to this restaurant in years but I was coming back from South Beach (which I have no desire to go back to again!), and decided to see if it was still there. I used to go with my mother over 25 years ago so I was so excited to see it again. I had the Lobster... More

Came here with a group that I work with. Upon walking entering everyone was very polite and professional. We had excellent service from our waitress, she was simply the best. They have a great wine selection to choose from. The appetizers, Oysters Rockefeller and the Crab, Avocado & Mango Stack were great choices. I had the Spiced Yellowfin Ahi cooked... More

The ambiance is excellent, very relaxing looking over the lovely Atlantic Ocean. Food and service is always excellent. Best chopped Spinach Salad ever.

The food at Charley's Crab was as good as I remembered it from many years ago. I was visiting my grandson in Fort Lauderdale and we were looing for a restaurant in Palm Beach. He suggested this one because his parents had been there and enjoyed it. My major complaint was that the service was quite slow and it was... More

Charley's Crab is situated in a beautiful setting, across the street from the ocean. The service was great and the food was delicious. I had Caribbean plank salmon and their Martha's Vineyard salad. My friend had the stuffed shrimp which she always orders because she loves it so much.

We have eaten here several times and each time the food was the delicious and service was outstanding. The fish is always fresh and cooked to perfection. The oysters are some of the best I have ever had. The location is great - right on the ocean. If you plan on going there for a special occasion, let them know,... More

Starting with personalized menus for my hubby's birthday, everything was spot-on! Hostess asked if we preferred a booth or table, server was there right away to offer drinks. The appetizer suggested was the Dynamite Scallops and they were fantastic! For dinner my husband had been craving Alaskan King Crabs, no bib needed here! Pre-cracked and delicious. I had the Surf...

Visited this restaurant with my family to take advantage of their participation in Palm Beach restaurant week and their prefix menu. The service was good, the young lady who was our waiter was very attentive. The food was good, but the desert was amazing! I dont know if they have their own pastry chef on staff but the key Lime...

This is part of a chain but with the local feel. The food quality is really good and well prepared. The menu has no suprises and a tad bit pricey. Since I was alone I ate at the bar and the bartender was an excellent server also. The atmosphere was very relaxed which made for an unrushed dinner. Would recommend

The food was barely eatable as the seafood had a bad odor. Staff were aware of our gross dissatisfaction with the food but never offered to do anything about it. The service seemed good at first, however, we were told to join the "landry's select club" (although it would cost $25) that everyone would receive $25 birthday reward that I... More
