Great food great service

My wife and I wanted to find some place new to try. We came across this place and are glad that we did. The did comes in large pros and was very reasonably priced. I had the jerk chicken with pineapple salsa and my wife had the spicy shrimp and grits. We will be back.

Several of us stopped in on a Saturday night. They had a light crowd, which is probably standard for this place, on what ought to have been a packed night. Hip-hop playing (which is a turn-off for our crew) and definitely no eye candy to look at. The beer selection is hurting but so I settled for a Budweiser. The... More

We want to thank you and your wife for giving us a try! We are trying hard to get "discovered" by the entire community, so reviews such as yours are extremely helpful. We hope to see you back soon. By the way, we are launching our Fall/Winter menu next month, keeping the most popular and adding some new items that... More

Great place on the lake. We have watched them grow over the years and they keep adding and updating the place with beach decor that you may think you are on a beach somewhere. Staff and food is always the best.

Thank you for the kind words! We love our little "beach" on Old Hickory Lake, so we are especially pleased when others think so too. Please come back soon and often. By the way, we are bringing out our Fall/Winter menu, keeping the most popular and adding some new items that are geared to cooler weather. Check it out and... More

We are sorry to hear that your visit to Barefoot Charlie's last month was disappointing. We are guessing that your visit was during the July 4th weekend, which was extremely busy. That is never an excuse, but it may have added to the challenges. As for the menu, it is difficult to respond. We want to have some items on... More

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. The service was... More

I missed your review until I was looking at the overview. Forgive me! We appreciate your taking the time to share your experience. Of course, we strive for the "5's", but we learn more with scores less than 5's. We are always trying to upgrade our menu, but in such a way that we can still aim high with service.... 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.

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...
