A group of friends went for lunch. The atmosphere was great. Most of the party had the quiche, and them seemed to really enjoy it. I had the chicken crepes. Although they were quite tasty, I do have some suggestions with the texture. They were VERY cheesy. I like cheese just as much as the next person, but they has... More

Plenty of choices & the quiche was delicious! Recently celebrated a girlfriend's birthday. Reasonably priced. Everyone enjoyed their lunch!

If you want the best, I think Charlie's is it! Wonderful variety in the menu and every dish we've tried is exceptional. Most recent was the local catch, Tripletail. It was nothing short of delightful...moist and with a mushroom sauce to die for...she crab soup perfectly seasoned...Copper River sockeye salmon perfectly prepared, and the Chef brought out the best in...

Overall, dinner was fantastic. Our only complaint was the greeting and seating. It seemed awkward and cold, by the hostess or what seemed to be a manager. Our server Anthony was completely opposite, making us feel very welcome. The crab & avocado salad is a must for an appetizer. The she-crab could be seasoned more but it was also good.... More

Charlie's setting with the entrance and porch makes you feel like you are in a home Vs a commercial restaurant venue. As there was wait, we elected to sit at the bar. The dining rooms have several seating areas which add to the character. The bar area is a comfortable room in itself with bar stools and den seating. You... More

The food is great with a focus on locally available fish. We went on a Monday night to take advantage of the 1/2 price wine night and the place was very busy. The staff is great, attentive without being overly so, and we look forward to returning next year.

I am super critical of the restaurants in Hilton Head as many of them seem to be all about quantity and not quality. Charlie's L'etoile is a big restaurant, but DOES NOT sacrifice quality. I went with a group that started as 6 and ended up as 8 and they had no problems ordering for the folks who were 40... More

I would rate 3 1/2 stars. We went to Charlie's on a week night for their early bird dinner. My son had the steak and I had the parmesan crusted tilapia. Steak was a little over cooked. My tilapia needed more seasoning. My husband's red snapper coconut curry and candied ginger was exceptional. It wasn't on the early bird dinner.... More

We have been having our date night here for 3 years in a row and won't choose another place! Every bite is mouth watering. It's a romantic, cozy atmosphere. Fresh fish, perfectly cooked veggies and a sweet homemade dessert to top it off. Delicious!

Lovely location tucked away on New Orleans street but the salad was much to be desired. Walkins accepted for lunch.
