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.

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

Great lunch at a corner table overlooking the Atlantic. Exceptionally good gazpacho and crab and avocado stack. The wine by the glass prices are reasonable (especially for a resort city). With the almost minute by minute cruising by parking enforcement officers, the free valet parking was very welcome.

Love stopping here, it's always nice and quite. The food and service is always welcoming. You're going to have a great experience and the oysters were fantastic.

This used to be my favorite restaurant. Not anymore - I suppose it's natural for things to decline when managed by a national corporation. Our most recent visit was initially marred by the surly valet. The hostess made things worse by jumping to his defense when we mentioned it to her before being seated. The saccharine attempts at courtesy thereafter... More

This was a very surprising nice outing. We had a great dinner and very knowledgeable staff. From the wine , the seafood to the dessert we had a lovely dinner, with and great view to the ocean. We will come back and of course recommend to our friends.
