After a 15+ mile bike ride we stopped at Charlie's for lunch. And what a lunch we had! The choice of cold beers was extensive (as well as the wine list) and we each ordered the chicken crepes with a side salad. The service was attentive, the atmosphere was absolutely charming and best of all was the food! Our compliments... More

We enjoyed a very nice And casual lunch at Charlie's while on a short visit to Hilton Head Island. The service was probably the friendliest I've encountered in a long time. We felt a chill on entering the restaurant and when we mentioned this one of the staff brought us shawls to drape over our shoulders if it stayed too... More

Charlie's has always been one our favorite places for lunch. Love the Chicken Salad, Sirloin Sandwich, and the Duck. Monday's are best since any bottle of wine priced under $100 is half price.

We loved this restaurant when we were last in Hilton Head six years ago. Last month we invited friends who were in Hilton Head for dinner here and they were just as pleased (and impressed!) as we were. The place is charming, the service is exemplary (Anthony was our waiter and he has a wonderful future in whatever line of... More

We enjoyed Lunch so much we made reservations for Dinner the next day. The food is extraordinary as well as the service. Mark was our server both days and made it very special. We look forward to going back. We've enjoyed meals at several Hilton Head restaurants and this is our favorite .

We really enjoyed Charlie's. The food was delicious (although my escargots were really big and a bit chewy - I would try something else next time - and I would have expected a nice crusty baguette, although they had some other unusual breads which we liked a lot). The decor was fun with lots of items from France displayed everywhere,... More

Don't be fooled by the name. Not a stuffy French restaurant. but a friendly place that uses some of the influence in décor and preparation of the freshest catch and produce to make excellent food offerings.

Absolutely wonderful restaurant. It has it all!!! The atmosphere has a lot of ambience. Wait staff was excellent. Our waitress, Michelle, sets the benchmark for excellent, friendly service. She seemed to magically appear when anything was needed at the table. The food was wonderful. I had the filet, cooked perfectly & delicious, the Mahi Mahi & Trigger fish were pronounced... More

Charlie's was recommended to us as one of the best restaurants on the island AND they served lunch! So my sisters and I ventured into Charlie's on a rainy Monday afternoon looking forward to a nice cup of soup to warm us up. The restaurant had a cheery, country French feel and we felt right at home. The menu had... More
