Not too many people on the restaurant on a Sunday night. Our salads had the smell of fish to them, must be in the same cooler as the fish.

I have never been disappointed at Charlie's, no matter what I ordered. The blackened grouper, the raspberry salmon, pasta, and the mussels are heavenly (feels like being in France!) The staff is always on top and there is never any problems in substitutions. The wine list is one of the best in Omaha but, I must comment on the dessert... More

They were nonstop!!! At times high stepping! And our waitress Haley was outstanding!!!! We were so impressed by her kindness and... More

Very pleasant sitting out on patio. Martini drinks were very good. Ended up eating various appetizers, which was more than enough. They were not very busy, felt no rush to vacate our table.

The menu indicates a good cross section between land and sea favorites. And the Mussels we had for an appetizer were really very good. But the Calimari was less than average. I also was looking for something a little lighter and choose the Prime Stir Fry. That was not a good choice. If I wanted that much brown gravy, I... More

We used to dine here twice a month on average. However, the last 4 trips which were over the last 6 months, the food is not up to par at all. I loved the fish before, which is why we kept coming back along with the great martinis. The martinis now are substandard. Two martinis and you felt it. Now,... More

What an outstanding meal - the service was excellent and atmosphere was relaxed. It was too cold for an outdoor meal but the patio looked amazing and I hope I have the opportunity to go back. I had the baked grouper topped with asparagus and spinach and crab. It truly was outstanding. My boss had the tuna sampler - rare,... More

We are only in town for weekend, not sure where to eat, and glad we stopped by for dinner here! My husband had the Prime Rib and stated it was the BEST he has ever had. I tried and bite and it was superb! My dinner was the Jackson's Alfredo with blackened chicken and let me tell you, it was... More

Friday afternoon lunch with my pretty wife. The staff is great and attentive. I am not a seafood guy so I had the Asian boneless chicken wings. They were fantastic with a ton of flavor. Kind of spicy. My wife had the Grouper lunch special and a cup of clam chowder. She said the soup was bland with very little... More
