It's a beautiful place/view, treated very nicely by all the staff and valet, we've gone for a lot of special occasions and will return for V-day this coming year!

We walked into Charley's Crab one afternoon in mid-January expecting an informal seafood bar. This is Palm Beach, we should have known better. White table cloths, formally attired wait staff. We altered our expectations, ordered a bottle of white wine and $188 later, we were done. The food and service were outstanding.

Nice place but very much posher than I first thought so coming right off the beach literally 10 yards away is a kind of shock. Wine is excellent, Service is quick and efficient which was excellent. the food was beautiful - the shrimp for the starter was just like a main course,

Have never hit a home run here but always got to second base. Place lacks panache and the food has no zing. Great to take your olde dowager aunt to

We have been wanting to try Charley's Crab for a few years so this year for or New Years Eve dinner we picked Charley's Crab. Waited a bit late to make the reservation so we got a 6:30 slot.

I really enjoy this place and we find that it is our go-to spot on many special occasions & holidays. It's a long-time staple of Palm Beach, although it's been bought out by Landry's, which also owns Morton's and Chart House. But tonight they get 3 stars because I am SO sick! Apparently the special dessert was not gluten-free, although... More

There were four of us, discussing golf and business while enjoying fresh oysters and crab meat. The service was very attentive. I'd like to go back for dinner but I know I'll miss the beautiful view of the ocean.

This family friendly upscale restaurant is consistently great. The food and service top rate. The grand mariner soufflé is a must do not forget to order it at the same time you order your dinner!!! It takes time for this great dessert to top off your lobster tails!
