This is a gem of a Resturant. The staff is friendly and knows their menu very well. The wine list is extensive but reasonable. The menu has a broad selection of items but is weighted toward seafood. Prices seem reasonable for the area and the value is excellent. It's a quiet little place perfect for a romantic evening with your... More

Love this restaurant! We had Black grouper and sea scallops, both excellent, but the scalloped potatoes were to die for! The only complaint that we had were the VERY hot plates. I was actually burned on my wrist while reaching for my water. Great service and our waiter was very accomodating. This is a must dining experience. Make sure that... More

It could have been great but the acoustics are terrible...had to shout to the person next to me to be heard. They've attempted to fix this with fabric stars on the ceiling but it does not work. Went to this restaurant with a group of women for lunch on a Monday to get to know each other better. The acoustics... More

Elegant seafood with excellent potatos and vegetables. Sorry we didn't get this recommendation earlier in our stay so we could go twice!

Love, love, love this restaurant. My only complaint was the bread. I'm a big fan of crusty, warm, mouth watering breads but Charlie's failed to excel in this. I believe good bread sets the mood for the rest of the meal. The bread was cold and somewhat stale. There was no flare to it like perhaps a great French restaurant... More

We have been going to this restaurant since it first opened about 30 years ago. The setting, ambiance is superb- French country comfortable. Decor reflects lots of Brittany. As to the food- had escargot and crab soup- neither as good as have been. Salad dressing changed and liked it better as was. Entree was very good mahi. Hopefully they will... More

8/2014 first trip to Charlie's with great expectations. A Monday night but fairly busy. Our table was somewhat in the path between dining rooms; and the wait staff was moving at "breakneck speed" and so it was a somewhat frenzied atmosphere AND each course of food was served toooo quickly...not at all relaxing! Food was very good....HOWEVER, it was served... More

We came here to celebrate a special occasion on a Friday night after arriving in town. We were expecting a romantic, elegant dinner. The decor is more like French country than upscale French (lots of roosters, in a house-type building). Although the website says they're open until 10:00 pm, the latest reservation (not needed) they would give us was 8:00... More

We have been to Charlie's several times over the years, and will continue to go back. Yes, some of the decor could use some updating but it has a wonderful wine list, good food and THE BEST Chocolate Martini anywhere! Jeff the bartender is awesome!

Charlie's parking lot is always crowded. Undoubtedly because of the lovely setting and excellent food and service. We hadn't been to Charlie's for a long time, if at all, and were very pleased with our visit. Lovely ambiance, excellent service and extensive and interesting menu, which changes daily. Food preparation was excellent. We had beef carpaccio and tuna sashimi/avocado salad... More
