We do go here occasionally for dinner. Food is spotty. Lite fare stuff generally is decent. Entrees are sometimes disappointing. It is somewhat out of the way, so there is often no wait to be seated. Outside dining is pleasant

We have gone to this restaurant for years, and it is a great meal for a reasonable price. They offer both inside and outside dining with a great menu to choose from. The used to have a wonderful lobster special which isn't there this year, but they had others. Great seafood dishes. Their chicken chesapeake is delicious. Also, great salads... More

Charley's is not an easy place to find or stumble across. We started going there after finding it while visiting another business in the same small boutique shopping area just off Ocean Highway on the bay side at Fenwick Island DE. It is a medium sized place with perhaps tables for 60 persons. There is included a bar and in... More

Tucked away in a retail village, Charlie's was nearly empty on a cold Sunday night. Always kind of scary to think you're the only diners, but there was a football game still playing on TV and most of the weekenders were likely headed home. It was cold and blustery at the waters edge and we were happy to see the... More

Hello, We have eaten here twice, would say the food is average. They do run half price specials that does make the average food taste a bit better. Since location and or view is almost as important as the food, not really a view of the bay here. For the same price, there are other outstanding views of the bay.

We have been going to Charlie's for years. the restaurant is hidden along side a channel/bay and has a uniqueness about it. The services is usually good and the food is very tasty. We always go for the lobster special but everything is yummy. The have a broccoli salad which is out of this world and their deserts are scrumptious.... More

We decided to stop and have lunch before we left town. Glad we did! We sat on the deck and enjoyed the flowers. I got the Cuban sandwich and my wife had the crabcake sandwich. Both were excellent. Our waitress was Laura, she was very nice. The deck was so relaxing we didn't want to go home. We will definitely... More
