We really wanted to eat at Shirley's but sadly they were on holiday our entire trip. Glad we stopped there though because we found Charlies! The best food and service we had in Exuma. Very much recommended. Menu has a great variety also. Nothing more to say :)

Charlies is a great spot for both dinner and nightlife. The karaoke is so entertaining and Charlie is a great singer. While we were eating, he made sure we were taken care of and spent some time chit chatting with us. The grouper fingers were great and a large portion, too much to finish actually. Not sure what the open/close... More

Stopped in for some ribs one night as people said they were great and they were. A very good size portion with tons of fries. If you like ribs, i would definitely recommend getting them from here.

We went yesterday looking for some ribs and chicken, bahamian style, after we read they were great... And they're even greater than we thought! But the best of all was the karaoke, they invite everybody to sing, and the owner sings like heaven! We'll definitely repeat ;)

We've been to Charlie's many times, most recently in August 2015. The food is traditional Bahamian BBQ. We had ribs, chicken, beans and rice, cole slaw. It was even better this time than the last. BUT the real reason to go here is the owner and karaoke night on Sunday. I know it sounds strange to do karaoke in the... More

Having been to Exuma last year and experienced Charlie's by accident, I couldn't wait to get back when I visited this year. And it was every bit as good as I remembered. The food is great - you wait a while but that's because everything is made fresh to order so it's worth it. And it's such good value for... More
