Seafood in Omaha! YES!!

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... read 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

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

This restaurant was chosen by a coworker for dinner, as our division director was in town and he wanted to have dinner with 17 managers in his division. Charlie's used to be fantastic--good food, great service, wonderful atmosphere. I stopped going there about 9 years ago--everything had gone downhill. But, I had no choice about going there with this group... More

We were told this was one of the better places to eat in Omaha. A group of seven had very poor service (slow) and the food was average at best. Would recommend you find another place to eat in Omaha----there are much better choices.

I have been to Charlies a number of times. Every time I go, I ask myself 20 minutes in why did I come back. The service has never been anything above alright. The food is ok. And the prices are expensive. That said, they do a heck of a business so maybe it is me. I am typically a sports... More

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

Took the family for dinner, the wife's birthday so wanted to try a new place in town, wish we wouldn't have. We should have clued in when we called the restaurant to find out how long the wait was & they hung up on us the first time, we called back & stated the could get us in right away... More
