Loved the location on the water, booths have a better view than the tables. Lots of fish on the menu, but a bit pricey. Would save this for a special occasion place.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. I called to make my anniversary reservation just the day before and they even customized a menu for me and my husband!! Food was really good. We had to start Crab, Avocado and Mango Stack which was amazing. Perfect for summer. Then I had the Alaskan King Crab Steamed with rice and asparagus and... More

Staying in Palm Beach we were looking for a great meal and decided to visit Charlies based on the reviews. There are a lot of so called "Seafood" restaurants in the area but most are serving fried seafood and not fine dining seafood. Upon arrival we were greeted and seated at a nice window table overlooking the water. Our server... More

Charley's Crab continues to be a superb sea food dining location. We just had an early dinner and were able to enjoy a superb 3 course offering. Having a great Clam Chowder, followed by a Potato-Crusted Salmon with a lemon truffle butter sauce and green beans, and a dessert of Cheesecake made this a great experience. My wife had a... More

Service was excellent and the food was great. Our table was a little tight but the view made up for that inconvenience. Pretty restaurant and well located. We will return.

Nothing like calling a restaurant of their quality, at the last minute and getting a reservation for lunch. Perfect timing; we missed the Fathers Day brunch rush and the food was as tasty as ever. They rarely disappoint with some of the best lobster bisque and crab cakes in Palm Beach. Today, I tried something a little different and had... More

We enjoyed some delicious fish and seafood here. We would have enjoyed it more if we had known to make reservations for the front room. The back room is, well, the back room. There is no ocean view, and it totally lacks the pizzaz of the front room. Naturally, the prices remain the same, and for that, it is over-priced.... More

A great experience from the time we entered with the hostess, bar tender and our server, Elizabeth, Jennifer and Adam. Can't forget the great valet service. They went above and beyond. The food was excellent. I had mahi mahi which was moist and excellent and my husband had scallops which were seared to perfection. Overall the entire evening was superb.... More
