The crab cocktail was fabulous. We also had medium sized stone crab claws. Outstanding. I ordered Lobster Bisque as suggested by the server, and she promised "there will be a lot of lobster meat chunks in the bisque." There was none. I brough this to er attention, she took my bisque and brought the same dish back with shredded lobster... More

We had the coconut shrimp app, the grouper with shrimp entree....really good. Nice atmosphere, a little pricey...but, good. Go during the week to get a nice table and better service.

After not eating here for many, many years we decided to visit Charley's Crab for a special birthday dinner and it was great. The wait staff went above and beyond to accommodate our table of 6, and we are a group that loves a lot of attention. The pace was set and the waiter stayed with us, staying polite and... More

Our second visit to Charley's Crab was for Sunday Brunch. The Brunch menu was filled with wonderful offerings. Traditional Eggs Benedict from that menu and fish and chips from their regular menu. Our VIP service was excellent as was the food. We decided to take a look at the dessert menu and were surprised with a complimentary molten lava cake.... More

We've been to this throw back restaurant many times and keep going back because the food is consistently good, the service is professional and the location is without match in Palm Beach. It is not a gormet, high end, special occasion place but a place that offers a large choice of favorite foods served well. We had the fish and... More

If you love to eat crab while enjoying an expansive ocean view, this place is perfect. We enjoyed a very good meal, with a very attentive server. With so few dining options on the beach in this area, we were so happy to find Charley's!

Loved the ambience and staff from the moment I arrived. The lobster bisque was unbelievably rich and delicious. My black grouper covered in crab and the coconut rice were one of the best fish meals ever.

I went there with my wife to celebrate our 28th year anniversary. Since we made a reservation, they were waiting for us with a nice window table looking at the ocean. The menus had a nice message, with our names, wishing us a happy anniversary. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend the restaurant.

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
