But other than that all the other dinners were great. My wife and I went one cold windy day and I had the... read more

There are so many good restaurants on Hilton Head but we manage to alway fit in Charlie's every time we visit. The restaurant is warm and inviting from the casual bar area to the main dining rooms; it feels as though you are visiting in someone's home. The service is flawless. The menu is quite large and varied and changes... More

There is no question why Charlie's remains one of the best restaurants on the Island. We had a great waiter, Lucas, who was very attentive to our every need and the food (especially the Triggerfish) was superb! This will continue to be a must visit locale every time we visit Hilton Head.

Lovely, cosy decor reminiscent of a French cottage. Nice lunch menu with ample salad choices, quiche, soup, sandwiches, & entrees. Reasonably priced with good service. We'll be back to check out the dinner menu.

Every bite was Devine. Loved the wine, great service, and the food was superb. I would encourage everyone to give it a try. You will not be disappointed. I had the filet and my husband had fish. Both were prepared perfectly and were served with great veggies.

We were surprised at the crowd on a Monday in the off season. Then we found out it was 1/2 price wine night... that explained it. The food was excellent. The Server was very informative and helpful. Would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting the island.

Friends suggested we meet for lunch as it was more moderately priced than dinner. Exceptional service and menu had nice selection of lunch entrees. My husband ordered the special of parmesan crusted salmon which he said was perfectly prepared. Others in the party ordered various salads which were generous and very good. The cream of crab soup was good, but... More

Charlie's is a wonderful place to eat. You can always depend on it. The menu varies each day depending on the fresh fish and meats available. The atmosphere and the service assure a pleasant dining experience. The quality of the food great and dependable.
