Long wait

We have eaten at Charlie's quite a few times throughout the years. They used to have fantastic food and service until about 5 years ago. Tried it again last night (not by choice) and found it to still be a disappointment. I find that it takes forever to order, get glasses refilled and then to... read more

Came to Charlie's about a year ago and our experience was not great... But we gave it another try... BAD IDEA!!! Waited 20 minutes for our Martinis because the server said they were out of Martini glasses. Looked around at empty tables with empty Martini glasses, but OK!!! Waited 30 minutes to order our food, our waiter was attending to... More

Went there on a date night with my husband, and the food was absolutely incredible! Service was quick and friendly as well. We ordered the Lobster Havarti as an appetizer, it was great for 2 people. I ordered the Lobster Alfredo and it was probably one of the best I've eaten. The alfredo sauce was perfect! My husband got the... More

I had their lunch special, a shaved prime rib sandwich. WOW! Don't order it unless you're really hungry.The prime rib was delicious and piled high. The wife had the key lime cheesecake for dessert. The potion was huge and tasted yummy (she let me have a bite). The service was excellent and the prices very reasonable.

Have been to Charlie's many, may times. Will return because this is the first not top drawer experience I've had. I nearly always say if you want a steak got to a steakhouse. Should have listened to myself and ordered something similar to what my dining partners did. The other three dinners not only looked good, but were said to... More

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. Ordered the Grouper with Lobster sauce, spinach & asparagus and the Boson cod. The cod said "Two 4 ounce filets of cod pan sautéed and served over rice topped with a... 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
