Sat at the bar with family and split a few of the offerings on the bar menu. The goat cheese and toast was fabulous and the chicken crepes were great. Highlight of the meal was the best steak sandwich ever. Thanks to Jeff, the wonder barkeep, our glasses were never empty.

We ate here based on a recommendation of friends. I had the blackened sheepshead, which was voted the best at the table. My husband felt his grouper was overcooked and my friend felt like her tilapia didn't have any flavor. The soup and mozzarella/tomatoes were well received as was the key lime pie and caramel cake. Monday is half price... More

High prices - but great food. Regretfully, a poor value due to the frantic atmosphere. Not the place for a quiet romantic dinner. Uncomfortably loud to begin with. Then add 4 hearing-impaired patrons yelling across the adjourning table. We were re-seated at another table, but the same sports bar atmosphere prevailed. Result = Out of Control. Even the wait staff... More

Charlie's is located on New Orleans Rd., a side street accessible via either Pope Ave., or Wm. Hilton Pkway. A busy night might force you to park next door, but it's worth a few extra steps into the attractively casual dining room. The menu is (largely) French, but everything is recognizable. I began with a light side salad, followed by... More

Charlie's is a small and unique bistro and bar that has the atmosphere of a European cottage. The interesting menu changes daily with lots of fresh fish and other items.

The food here is delicious! I I love the handwritten menu. The food changes seasonally but it's always delicious. I can't wait to go back!

It is great in every aspect. The menu is done daily with the freshest local fish and land items. The ambiance is very good as well as the service. We have eaten there several times, because we are local, and have never had a problem. It is our " go to" restaurant when we are taking visiting friends and family... More

We arrived at 5:30pm. This is a quaint restaurant. We went for a romantic dinner, but the tables are crowded a little too closely together to be too intimate. This restaurant has a handwritten menu that changes daily. They also supposedly have early bird specials that are verbally given, not written down. The waiter pointed out items on the menu... More

Loved Charlie's. The restaurant has a great menu where everyone can find something. We had the escargot (classically well done), crab & avocado salad (delish) & the grouper (a must have). The best part was the caramel cake, probably had 1000 calories but worth every one! Service was impeccable. If you're a wine fan, there are stunning bottles at incredibly... More

This was my first time at Charlie's and I liked it very much. The fish selection is always fresh and the menu is hand written daily based on the fresh catch. The menu does have a selection of meats for the non fish lovers. I had the Trigger fish which I had never heard of before and it was done... More
