“Quality of food has gone down.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I always visit Charley's when in Fort Myers and was very disappointed this visit.The salad bar offered nothing that looked fresh and they would not replenish items they ran out of like lettuce! Food was not the same. Seafood was overcooked and dry. Server was not friendly.

“Doesn't Disappoint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We eaten here many times over the last several years. The salad bar is worth
the visit in itself. My husband had steak and I had scallops....both were delicious!

“Great Salad Bar!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Charley's Boat House Grill is one of the popular restaurants on Fort Myers Beach, and no wonder. It is worth the trip just for the salad bar! I recently dined at Charley's and had one of their house specialties, prime rib. It was a great piece of meat, cooked to my liking, and served with a hot baked potato and steamed veggies. But what really made the trip worthwhile is the salad bar. This is the kind of salad bar one used to see in restaurants many years ago, with dozens of choices of fresh vegetables, toppings, dressings, fruit and more. Sadly you seldom find this extensive a salad bar any more. But Fort Myers Beach has one at Charley's! The refrigerated salad plates are a nice touch as well. Great salad bar and great service. I'll be returning!

“Best dinner around!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

On our recent trip to Fort Myers Beach we went to Charley's Boathouse on two nights. The 55 item salad bar is out of bounds, the steaks and seafood are fresh and cooked to perfection, and then there are the hot dinner rolls that come to your table...Delicious! Combine the food with the friendly, happy staff and servers and you have a great place for dinner. Early bird specials start at 4:45, we dined early one night and later the second night we visited, both times everything was awesome! Thanks for the good food and fun times! We will certainly visit again!
