Amazing...

Went last evening with 6 children and our friends. Service, atmosphere and food was amazing. I am still full this morning. A must try. No kids menu, but my kids love filet!

On the recommendation of many friends four of us ate dinner here last Monday. We were delighted with the food, service & atmosphere. The atmosphere has been enhanced by dividing the dining area into separate rooms. Old windows hung from the ceiling create a separation between rooms but not a solid wall which would make the rooms feel small. All... More

Thank you! We really appreciate knowing that you enjoyed our restaurant. We hope to make everyone feel cozy and relaxed, while keeping an eclectic feel to the dining room. Rack of Lamb is my top choice every time! Hope to see you again. Best, Margaret Pearman More

Love, love, love this restaurant. When you first enter the courtyard it is lit with beautiful, little white lights. Inside, the restaurant is very charming. They have an expansive wine list. The menu is primarily seafood..the Flounder Meunière is delicious and the Caramel Cake for dessert is not to be missed. Be sure to try this restaurant on your next... More

Thank you! The Flounder meuniere has been on the menu since the beginning, and is one of our signature dishes sauteed in white wine and lemon juice. Caramel cake is a traditional Southern dessert we started serving about 10 years ago. We can barely keep up with the demand it's so popular! We are thrilled you had a great experience.... More

We tried Charlie's at the suggestion of some local friends who count Charlie's as their favorite local place. We were a bit concerned that it might be "too French" but it wasn't at all. In fact, the surprise was that Charlie's menu is primarily seafood, with each of a dozen seafood choices prepared in oh such interesting ways. There were... More

Never thought alot of this restaurant. They are pretending to be french. Actually we wanted to go to a different place what was unfortunately closed so we had to go somewhere else. Having had one OK experience we went to Charlies. First thing: we brought our own bottle of wine. the waitor opens the bottle and fills both of our... More

So sorry you feel so negatively about our restaurant. I hope that you sent back your Bouillabaisse., and did not pay for it. It has been sometime since we have had bouillabaisse on the menu, and we usually do not use mussels. We really don't claim to be 100% French. We like to think of our restaurant as one that... More

This French restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel staff. We were not disappointed! We arrived in time for the Early Bird Special and received a delicious 3 course meal. The atmosphere is quaint, the waiters are superior.

So glad you enjoyed our early dining menu. It's available from 5:30 to 6pm every night in the dining room or bar. We include a selection of fish, and usually offer a Filet Hache Burger as well. With a salad to start and a dessert to finish, we like to think it's well worth $19. Best, Margaret Pearman More

Excellent food, served at the right temperature. Angie an incredible server. At these prices, felt that the service could be less "turn the table" experience. Food runners and bus staff where right there when we finished eat course - a little too eager. Next course was waiting in the kitchen to bring out. Would prefer a little "digestion" time to... More

This is a great spot that locals typically keep as a secret spot for themselves. Jeff the bartender at the bar keeps you laughing and always makes sure your glass of wine is full. The menu is available at the bar as well, but I would suggest eating in the dining room if at all possible. They have great food... More

Everything you could ask for in a great dining experience. Great décor - nice ambiance - great food - nice presentation. Helpful and attentive wait staff. Many specials from local sources. One of the best meals you will have on HHI.
