Charlie's was recommended to us by the cashier at a gas station and as it wasn't too far from our hotel, we decided to try it. Our waiter, James, was fantastic. We ordered the meatball appetizer but he brought out chowder first- which was one of the best chowders I've eaten. But after waiting for quite awhile, when James went... More

Very tasty & creative seafood plates. My wife really enjoyed the raspberry salmon. I love the Charlie sampler with spinach and asparagus. It is a nice place to enjoy a quiet meal or to bring a larger group. We enjoy sitting on the veranda in the summer near the lake . Perhaps the best local location for seafood cuisine.

A friend took me to this restaurant a week ago. He ordered and we had grouper (fried with a nice batter) and blackened tuna in small pieces on a platter with three sauces. Both were wonderful. Grouper is one of my favorite and they did a marvelous job preparing reasonably large pieces and cooked just right. The tuna came with... More

Has been a favorite restaurant when we looked forward to a meal on the outside patio. Eight of us arrived and were quickly seated and greeted by nice waitress. Two couples ordered two appetizers each. The other two couples each ordered an entree to share with their spouse. Only one salad per entree was okay. One small loaf of their... More

Charlie's was the "birthday boys" choice for his celebration. He and his wife are regulars. This was my first experience. There were 5 of us so we had a wide variety of entrees and appetizers. The food was amazing! Prime Rib cooked perfectly, Fish was melt in your mouth buttery, pasta to die for. Usually a salad is a salad,... More

At 7:30, we walked in without a reservation and we were told we would be put on a 45 minute wait list! There were tables open! For 2 people! Several people (including ourselves) left because of this. I checked... More

I have enjoyed great meals at this spot and total disappointments. This meal offered some of each. The house salad bordered on excellent. The greens and fixings were ample and well conceived but the house dressing was a total disappointment (flavorless) The special filet wrapped in bacon with crab cakes was not well received. There was more bacon than filet... More

I've lunched at this restaurant several times with friends and it never disappoints. The Almond Chicken Spinach Salad is my all-time favorite restaurant salad. Portions are so generous that they can be shared. Service is always excellent. I am so happy it is open for lunch again!!!!
