Our Group Loved it Here for Lunch Today

Our group came here for the first time today and we all said that we would be back. The server was really good, and with great weather we sat outside and enjoyed the breeze while eating. We got the turkey burger, the fish and chips and the turkey sandwich and again, we all loved it. By the way... read more

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...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience. You are our perfect Barefooter.!

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.

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!

Great bar and great food. My wife and I have been there numerous times and have sat inside and out, with entertainment and without - very friendly service. Get the Hush Puppies! Excellent Margarita and good beer selection.
