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

Hilton Head has many fine restaurants. This is one of the best I ate at. The chalkboard is well-stocked with fresh specials. You will enjoy your dining experience here.

Been here many times too. A REALLY nice bar with couches no less. Bar menu is my usual fare and its great. I'll leave the dining room experience for someone else but all I here is good to excellent and very comfortable.

Decided to eat at Charlie's at the last minute without a reservation. The place was packed but some how the staff seated me quickly. Service was first class. Fish was excellent and the scalloped potatoes' are the best on the island. Charlie's is always a great choice on Hilton Head Island.

I was driving home to New Jersey from Florida and when I came to South Carolina, on a whim, I turned off the interstate and headed over to Hilton Head Island. It was easy to secure inexpensive and well-located lodging so there was "extra" money to spend on a good dinner. After checking out reviews, I decided to head for... More

I don't mind paying $165 for dinner when I go out with my wife, but this meal just wasn't worth it. Certain things were good, but others were just average. First off, the service was fantastic. Very attentive and she helped up pick a fantastic bottle of wine. Escargot for the appetizer was also wonderful. Cold Cucumber Soup was ok...... More

We went back for lunch after a fabulous dinner. Simply the best lunch anywhere, crepes at lunch and fish cakes wow! Can't believe the quality of food, consistency of food. If you haven't been to Charlie's you haven't been anywhere. Lunch is a great value as well. Enjoy and try the bar food.
