What a lunch we had, before heading to the airport, sitting at the window overlooking the beautiful ocean. It was a perfect day with perfect food. Started with their New England clam chowder which was probably the best I've ever had. Perfect consistency chock full of melt in your mouth clams and potatoes. Then the crab cake sandwich platter.

Stopped in for the happy hour and was amazed at how great the apps were ( $6 &$7) and the drinks at $7. Service was so accommodating and we had a great table at the window and a view of the ocean. Very quite and lovely. Not for those looking for a vibrant lively crowd, but perfect for those looking... More

The food was super. Oysters so fresh. Crab salad large and filling. Service prompt and efficient. (We were there for lunch in the front dining room overlooking the sea. There are other dining spaces that were closed when we were there and they may well have a different feel.)

Happy Hour is not to be missed! Great choices of bar foods and drinks at $7.00/each. There are two separate bars, one with great ocean views. The seafood in the restaurant is very good too, making this one of the very popular spots in Palm Beach. Reservations are accepted.

My wife and I went to Charlie's to celebrate our birthday's that are one day apart. This was our first visit to this restaurant so in the special request section I mentioned this, requested a special table and told them that it was our birthday's. Upon arrival the valet opened the car door and then ran to open the restaurant... More

I hadn't been here in many years but was glad that we tried it again.The place has been updated since I have been there and it is now open and light and very nicely decorated. I had a fabulous shrimp cocktail and my husband had delicious oysters. My husband thought the scallops were well cooked. My salmon was very tasty.... More

Loved the crab cakes. We were there various time between 3 and 7 pm. and the meal served as lunch and dinner. Service was always excellent. Noise level is not a problem, we had a table for five and could easily here each other. No stairs. valet parking.

Our menus were customized to commemorate our anniversary....nice touch. The service was excellent and the food devine. My stone crabs were excellent and the swordfish was cooked perfectly. The location of the property is excellent and parking is valet. Give it a go.
