Some fairly good seafood inland

We went here on a lark and it was good. The fried oysters were good for inland but I think they were frozen. The waitress told us that the onion rings were frozen and they were fair. She brought us some "tobacco onion rings" which they put on salads and they were freshly made and were excellent... read more

A friend had told us about Barefoot Charlie's, and when we made the time to visit, we weren't disappointed. Pleasant wait staff, and a good menu selection, and daily specials. It was a little more expensive than I expected, but we ate well and left happy.

Family dinner after being several times before was disappointing. The menu has been updated, but the food quality has significantly decreased.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. We really regret that it did not go well. We hate any poor impression, but we really are disappointed that you were visiting our area and left with that feeling. In warmer weather, we do get high traffic and with a group of 9, I suspect that we probably... More

I loved the chicken salad and side of fruit! Sitting outside with our feet in the sand looking out to the lake was nice and added so much to the atmosphere.

We have eaten at Barefoot Charlies for years and love the atmosphere and experience. The foods good too (and drinks). They have done a good job to set the mood of being somewhere in the Caribbean rather than Old Hickory Lake with no beach, it works. The food is quite good but just be ready because it is laid back...

We do hope to see you again soon and often! More

Food was bland with no taste and didn't care that it was a bar and the location of the place and it was kinda small not much room to maneuver, didn't care for the indoor surrounding, wasn't impressed at all and would recommend this restaurant/ bar to my family or friends to eat there.

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience. It appears that you were a guest at a reception that had been scheduled. We really can't address much of what you say as that is what your host reserved. However, we are concerned about your perception of the food. We obviously regret that you did not enjoy it.... More

As a frequent customer I highly recommend! There is no place like it in the area. The tropical theme and open air dining, with a beautiful view of the lake, is one of a kind. Wear your flip flops and enjoy!
