My wife and I and another couple went to Charlie's for dinner. Intimate atmosphere, great service and outstanding food. Steaks were cooked to order and the fish was out of this world. Highly recommended

We accidentally came across Charlie's while looking for another restaurant. Finding places in Hilton Head is not easy and forget any notions of walking to them. We were on bikes but all the eateries on the island really need a car. Nice atmosphere, quite homely and although faux-French the fixtures and fittings were tasteful. The service was very attentive. We... More

This was the worst meal experience I have had in a very long time. Our server was aloof and seemed to be annoyed by us. I ordered the swordfish and it was horrible. Substandard and undercooked. Everything was served with overcooked vegetable medley and potatoes au gratin. My friend had a Thai inspired fish entree...potatoes au gratin...really? They may have... More

There is always that one place where you can go and know without a doubt that you are going to have an incredible meal. Charlie's is that place on HHI. Every night there is a unique handwritten menu with each dish as wonderful as the other. Enough choices that every pallet can find a favorite. The services is wonderful also--friendly... More

It is by far one of the finest restaurants on hilton head. Excellent fresh fish, delicious steaks, rack of lamb, duck and veal. Delicious desserts. outstanding staff. Jeff is the best bartender on hilton head. It's a must.

I was out biking when I noticed this quaint looking french restaurant with its attractive courtyard and porch. I took a peak inside and at the menu -- then I went to get my spouse to bring her here for lunch. That was a good decision. She had the flounder meunière and I had the chicken crepes. Both were excellent.... More

This was the best meal we had all week in Hilton Head! We sat at the bar and the bartender was friendly and very knowledgeable about the dinner menu. The grouper with mushroom sauce was beyond delicious, but then they pair it with their scalloped potatoes and it was impossible not to eat every speck of food on the plate!... More

A great menu, wine list and service make this a popular spot where reservations are recommended and a must on Monday's. The decor is a bit country but doesn't take away from some of the best cuisine around. We don't often find pate, flounder meunière or potatoes gratin on menus in the southern states. Then again the shrimp Creole and... More

This is a place that we never miss when we visit Hilton Head. We vacationed with another couple and they loved it just as much as we do. Their scallops are the best, and their caramel cake is a fabulous treat. Reservations are a must.
