The crab cakes and coconut shrimp appetisers were excellent as was the Mahi Mahi main course. Nice restaurant with linen table cloths and nice servers who look after you well. We... read more

Best crab cakes!!!! I love this place! My boyfriend loved the fact they had so much wine to choose from. Although the waiting was ridiculous with a reservation, our awesome waiter (very tall with a Sicilian accent) & my personal menu made up for it. They personalized the menu for me which I thought was sweet.

It is a very expensive restaurant but well worth the treat now and then. The dynamite scallops for appetizer were my favorite! We got 2 orders of those. The stack of crab, mango, avocado was really good too. We got various entree's and all were excellent, especially with the dynamite crab sauce on top. To die for... my friend said... More

Stopped here for an early dinner. It is a great location, right across the street from the Palm Beaches. The service was great from the 2 hostesses who seated us to the waitress to the manager who stopped by. The food was a little on the spendy side but cooked just right. I had the beet salad and it was... More

This restaurant is not to be missed when dining in the Palm Beach area. My wife and I were celebrating our 46th Wedding Anniversary. We called in advance for table reservations with a view. Great table looking out at the beach and ocean. Our menus were "personalized" with our names printed on them in honor of our special celebration-WOW!! The... More

My husband and I decided to go to the bar at Charlie's crab to see the Mets Yankees game,we called to make sure that the game was on at which point we spoke to the manager Mathis who was more than helpful and asked us which team we were rooting for. We told him it would be a surprise when... More

When we pulled into Charley's Crab for lunch, the parking lot was 3/4 empty. I proceeded to park the car, only to be told as we were walking into the restaurant that it was "valet only" and the attendant would have to re-park my car. Tip to management: That's not a good way to greet your guests particularly when there... More

We were heading to another spot, but it was just too long of a drive, so made a U-turn and went in. Nice atmosphere with a view of the ocean. Started with Mimosas-always a good starting place. I got the lobster and brie omelet with potatoes. Not too rich and absolutely delicious. The potatoes were a little too salty for... More

We decided that we needed a treat after a 3 day drive from Michigan...and Charley's Crab was just the place. We arrived later in the afternoon so seating was no issue. Had a nice table with a great view of the ocean and eye candy. Bloody Mary's all around and I have never had a better one...prepared to perfection! Had... More
