We have been to Barefoot Charlie's on several occasions but I have never taken the time to write a review. Last night's visit primed me to do just that...what was the reason, FRIED PICKLES. My wife beat us to the restaurant and ordered fried pickles as an appetizer. When I tasted the pickles I was blown away. I truly believe... More

Barefoot Charlie's new manager brought his BIG SMOKER with him and this guy knows how to smoke turkeys and ribs. We have put our order in for two big "TOMS" and cannot wait for Thanksgiving. On labor day we order six racks of baby back ribs and the meat was like eating cotton candy it melted in our mouths.

Ate here with my mom and sisters. A cute place right on the lake. I did not expect the ribs to be that good! My sisters enjoyed the bean salad and I also enjoyed the fried clams. Very casual and fun place and the staff is excellent. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.

If anyone is ever driving through Hendersonville, Tn. DON'T eat at "Barefoot Charlies"!! The first waitress who showed me to my seat was very nice, friendly and pretty; the second lady they sent over was the most sour and mean waitress I ever saw, she even got mad when I told her I have another friend coming and I didn't...

We have eaten here before and liked it, but the last time we went, on an early weekday evening, we couldn't get service. We sat at a table on the patio next to a large group of women, and a table of 4 on the other side of us. The servers were continually taking care of these two tables and... More

This is a cute "take off" on a Caribbean beach-side bar and grille. There is no beach but it is on the lake and the outside patio on a warmish summer day is attractive. The food is very good and the service was quite good the day we were there although they were understaffed a bit.The servers worked very hard... More

Went there today, as my husband thought it looked like a nice restaurant on the water. Well, it is water adjacent at best & the view of the water is minimal, due to cars parked in the parking lot between the outside dining area and the actual water. As if that wasn't bad enough, the "sand area" was some of... More

Wife and I visited last night having shrimp po'boy and black and bleu burger. The food was great, but service was not up to the normal standards.

We went to Barefoot Charlie's after hearing about the charming atmosphere and outdoor dining area. We were directed to a table outside in a sandy area. Charming at first, but after a 30-minute wait the charm wore off, especially with unruly and unsupervised children running around the outdoor dining area. After finally being served, we had only begun to eat... More
